ISO Fondue Pot
I want a fondue pot for Christmas. I am mostly interested in making cheese and chocolate fondue. Should I ask for a ceramic/electric model and avoid the sterno complications? Which model would you recommend? Thanks.
Go for an electric non-stick option. Non-stick is key, because cleaning out the crusted layer of browned cheese at the end (especially if you left it for a few hours because you wanted to talk to your guests) is a huge pain. The electric part makes it easy to adjust the temperature so it doesn't get too hot for chocolate. I have a model by West Bend which I like a lot.
