Trudeau 3 in 1 Electric Fondue Set

Trudeau 3 In 1 Electric Fondue Set - 11 piece set that holds 84 ounces

A Top Rated Electric Chocolate Fondue Set!

This set is one of my favorites! It has a large capacity (84 ounces) so you won't run out of melted chocolate and have to start over melting it again. You can do meat fondue in the stainless steel pot, or have chocolate or cheese fondue in the stoneware insert. Unlike the Trudeau 56 ounce pot (described in the next section), there's a fork guide for both the stainless steel pot and for the stoneware insert. The larger capacity of the 84 ounce set is better suited for families, while the 56 ounce model is great for 2.

Just as in the 56 ounce model, there are handles on the stainless-steel pot, an "on" indicator light on the warming base, and a quick-release magnetic power cord for safety. The electric base has a thermostat control allowing you to regulate the temperature. The stainless steel pot can be used on the stovetop, if you'd like to preheat your fondue before placing it on the electric warming base for serving.

When making chocolate or cheese fondue, you add water to the stainless steel pot and then insert the stoneware pot containing your chocolate or cheese on top of that. It works as a double boiler to warm the chocolate or cheese at a very even temperature which helps to prevent it from scorching. This is the best way to warm chocolate or cheese!

This 11 piece set comes with the 1500 watt electric base, the stainless steel pot (for meat fondue), the stoneware insert (for chocolate or cheese), 6 stainless steel forks with color coded tips, the break away power cord, a stainless steel fork guide, and instructions with recipe.

Trudeau Electric 3-in-1 Fondue Set - 11-Piece set that holds 56 ounces

The Trudeau Electric Fondue Set has many great features! The heat can be adjusted from low to high, and the stainless steel pot can be used directly on the stovetop if you'd like to cook a fondue recipe there before carrying it to the warming base. This means you don't have to dirty a second pot! There is a stoneware insert for warming cheese or chocolate fondue. The six stainless-steel forks have brightly colored dots on the end so you can tell whose is whose. There's even a fork guide around the rim of the pot to help keep each fork in place! On this fondue set, you'll also find two loop side handles on the stainless-steel pot, an "on" indicator light on the warming base, and a quick-release magnetic power cord for safety.

This 56-ounce stainless-steel electric fondue pot, with temperature controls, can be used either on the stovetop or with the included 500 watts warming base. It comes with a stoneware insert for use with cheese or chocolate fondue. Also included are 6 stainless-steel forks.

 

The Wilton Electric fondue pot melts chocolate or Candy Melts confectionery coating in 10 minutes or less! You don't need a double boiler or a microwave to do the melting for you! The removable nonstick pot is able to hold up to 2 1/2 cups and has both a melt mode as well as a warm mode.

      I love everything chocolate. If I'm having buffet and they have a fondue on the table, you can bet I will be eating it non-stop.

      What a terrific selection to choose from... the various sizes are so handy to choose from for the type of party and/or kind of entertaining you do. Personally, I'd love to have the personal chocolate fondue set ~ very attractive and just the right size for me. :)

      @OraraValleyCakes: You can use just about any type of chocolate - chocolate chips, chocolate bars, etc. If you use the chocolate fountain link I've provided above to click over to the Amazon site, you can watch a video of the chocolate fountain being set up and used. In the video they used 24 oz of chocolate chips, and 3/4 cup of oil. They melted the mixture in the microwave (but you could also use the stovetop) before putting it into the chocolate fountain. Hope that helps!
