Hot Oil or Broth Fondue Pots

Hot oil or broth fondue pots must be able to withstand high temperatures as they are designed for cooking raw meat, vegetables, fish, and more.

  • Dipping trays: Ideal for serving different types of dips to complement your fondue. Some trays come with a lazy susan to allow easy access for everyone at the table.

Types of Fondue Fuel

The type of fuel you need is dependent on the fondue set you have. Be sure to read the instructions that come with your fondue set to ensure you are using the right fuel type for your pot. The most common fuel types are tea candles, gel, alcohol, and butane burners. 

Tea candles: Easy to find in stores, tea candles are great for keeping chocolate and caramel fondues hot and in liquid form. These candles do not work well for cheese or oil fondues as it does not burn hot enough.

Gel fuel: These types of fuel are also used with adjustable burner units, great for cheese or dessert fondues, but they are not well suited for oil or broth fondues.

Alcohol fuel: Typically used with an adjustable burner unit, alcohol burners can be adjusted to accommodate different fondue types. Ideal for cheese, oil, broth, and dessert fondues.

Butane burner: Odour-free and safe, butane burners offer great heat control for cheese, oil, or broth fondues. However, this fuel type is not suitable for dessert fondues as it may burn too hot.

FAQs

Are there any fondue etiquettes I need to learn? 

While enjoying a session of fondue, remember not to double-dip! Never eat food directly off the fondue fork and once something has touched your lips, do not return it to the pot. To avoid double-dipping, use a dipping fork to dip, then remove the food onto a plate and enjoy with a separate fork or spoon. 

What else can I do with a fondue pot? 

When not serving delicious fondues, your electric fondue pot can be used for other purposes. Try making soups, stews, or deep-fried chicken in your electric pot. Your electric fondue pot can also be used for Chinese hot pot or simply to keep food warm.
