Chinese Hot Pot, Shabu-Shabu Cooker ?

Any idea where I would find one of these with the split compartment for 2 broths? I would prefer an electric one if possible. Thanks for your advice.
You may have better luck buying the pot and the burner separately. You can get a split pot at most Chinese grocery stores, like T & T. The pot shouldn't be more then $20, usually less than that. If you want an electric burner, consider getting an induction burner. I have seen them at Costco and at Asian grocery stores.
induction is the way to go for hotpot, no need to worry about buying butane cans, more energy efficient too.
Induction burners can be had for $80 or so.
i ended up recently buying a gas burner before thinking. for those of you who have a table top induction burner, how evenly does the burner heat? I've seen some tests that suggest it's only a small area in the middle, although i guess for heating broth, it's not that critical.
