What type of fondue set should you buy? It all depends on what types of fondue you want to cook for your friends. But whether your taste runs to Swiss cheese melted in wine, decadent melted chocolate with fruit dippers or nourishing Mongolian Hot Pot, nothing beats the experience of dipping into a communal fondue pot for entertaining guests or livening up a family meal. Will it be the classic cheese fondue or a meat fondue that is cooked in broth or hot oil? And don't forget chocolate fondue. With chocolate fondue you just need a small fondue pot. Meat fondues cooked in hot oil require a fondue pot than can withstand very high heat. A thicker pot that will hold the heat without scorching the contents is better for cheese and chocolate fondues.

Pay attention to the fuel required by your set. Make sure when you purchase your set that the required fuel is readily available. If not, purchase a sufficient amount of fuel when you buy your fondue set. Some of the chocolate/cheese sets are warmed by candles, which will work fine for those varieties, but don't try to cook a meat fondue using candles. Also you may want to consult with retailer for a electric fondue pot.

What other accessories come with your set? How many fondue forks are included with your set? Do they have some kind of coloring or other different decorations so your guests can tell the forks apart? Meat fondues are usually served with accompanying sauces. Are fondue sauce dishes included in your set? Is a lazy Susan part of the setup so that sauce dishes can be easily passed among your guests?
