    It's Fondue.

    I bought the electric one.

    You can take steak or chicken pieces and "fry" them in oil put in a fondue pot. Works great for large groups or parties and allows everyone to eat as much as they want with as much variety as they'd like.

    This thing also doubles as a cheese dip warmer if you turn it on low. It keeps the dip warm even as people dish their serving out.

    Thanks for the spelling correction.



    So it's meant for more than cheese and little toast pieces? I can actually do other things with it?

    Oh heck yeah. You can do LOTS of stuff with it.

    We did chocolate covered strawberries in it one night after I divorced. You just melt the chocolate in the pot and dip the strawberries in the chocolate and let them dry. It looks real fancy schmancy.

    I may still have my book that came with my pot if you want me to grab some of the recipes out of there to give you some ideas on what all can be done with one.

    We were just celebrating. Chocolate Covered Strawberries go great with a nice bottle of bubbly.

    Howyalikethat? A bunch of girls drunk on champagne!

    Unfortunately there aren't that many men who think ahead when it comes to setting the mood and the food. You must be in the minority or I'm looking in all the wrong places... :)

    Reminds me of a certain evening I had when I was single...back in the mid-80's...but I digress!
    I think it's probably a bit of both. Food and romance go hand in hand!

    If you read the reviews, there's at least one person who said this thing is far better than a fondue pot with a "burner" because it heats faster.

    One of the girls drinking w/me that night had one with a burner and we quickly ditched hers so we could use mine instead.

    Ah, there are so very few men around this area who even cook to begin with. Most of them think that a "good" dinner consists of a half-dozen Krystal hamburgers. How romantic.

    Melt Emmental and Gruyere and Kirsch. Put little bits of Italian bread on the skewers and dunk. Good stuff. With wine.

    Right behind you.
    What about Fondon't for those of us that don't want Fondue?

    ;f ;f ;f




    We just went to a Fondue party. Wow ! ! ! Talk about your collection of breads, crackers, cheeses and desert sauces.

    I went to the party expecting not to get filled up. Ack !!!

    I was bloated 30 minutes after arriving.
