I had the wonderful opportunity to review a Stainless Steel Electric Fondue Pot from Nostalgia Electrics! Fondue is always a fun and stylish way to serve hors d’oeuvres, entrées and desserts, whether it’s a small intimate Valentine’s Day celebration or a get together with friends. Creatively and communally cook morsels of meat and seafood in a variety of oils and broths.
This was my first time cooking with a fondue Pot. After researching recipes to try out, there are 3 different types of Fondue you can make, Cheese Fondue for dipping breads, meats, fruits, etc., Oil Fondue for dipping and cooking different types of meat and seafood, and Chocolate Fondue for dipping fruit, cookies, pound cake, marshmallows, etc. I decided to go with a Cheese dip, we love nachos and cheese dip at my house! I also bought White Chocolate, that will be my next recipe to try.
I used cream cheese, diced tomatoes and Velvetta Queso Blanco Cheese. I mixed all the ingredients in a separate bowl then placed the mixture in my Fondue Pot. I started with the higher temperature setting to allow the Velvetta and cream cheese to melt. Then went to the lower setting.
Everyone loved the cheese dip and the Fondue Pot is so easy to operate! The cheese was melted very smoothly and evenly. Some of the cheese burnt on the bottom, that was probably due to operator error. Clean up was extremely easy, the parts are not dishwasher safe but still very easy to clean by hand.
I like the wide range of temperature settings on the Fondue Pot. I do wish the power cord was a little longer, it’s only 3 feet, but it stays warm for a long time, so you can unplug the Fondue Pot and move it to the table for serving.
The size capacity is just right for my family of three, or a small gathering with friends. The pot has 3 different parts — the base which plugs into the wall, the stainless steel pot, and the fork rest that supports the forks. All 3 parts are made of stainless steel and flow together very well. The stainless steel look of the Fondue Pot goes well with any decor.
I think the Fondue Pot is a great accessory to add a little fun to any special occasion you have.
You can purchase the Nostalgia Stainless Steel Electric Fondue Pot at several locations, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Sears, Kmart and more.
