We make a lot of cheese and chocolate fondue and I have never burned either with this pot, even when the fondue has had a flame on it for a couple of hours.
The base is very sturdy and I have no fear of the pot falling off it even when the kids are goofing around trying to get last of the chocolate.
The burner always lights for me (some others I've used have not worked as well). It burns liquid fuel and jel fuel so there is never a problem trying to decide what to buy. Use the liquid when you need a hotter flame (for broths and deep frying), use the jel for a slightly cooler flame (for cheese and chocolate). But, either fuel will work for whatever you are heating.
I like this fondue pot so much I've order a second one. If you really like fondue and want something that will last, this fondue set is worth every penny.
When I get around to buying a second fondue pot, it will be this one.
UPDATE: I did buy a second fondue pot quite a few years ago now and, yes, it is the Le Creuset Fondue (only this time in flame orange). They really are great pots.
The only thing that dissapointed me is the fact that the burner where the pan is on gets hot which makes it impossible to place the fondueset directly on the table or to pick it up without any precautions. For the rest just compliments for this set: heats evenly, easy to clean, functional on all heat-sources, heavy, looks just right.
Unfortunately these assets do not come for free. Think its quite pricy but worth its money.
OK, enough philosophizing. I am extremely satisfied with this purchase. The Le Creuset is solid, beautiful, and built to last. The even heat is especially appreciated - no hot spots, and thus, no burning. The base is well-made and weighs enough to give the whole setup an impressive degree of stability. The burner can take liquids, which is very useful; methylated spirits or 90% isopropyl alcohyl both work well, and are easier to buy on the spur of the moment than gels.
Bottom line: if you are looking for a fondue set and can afford the Le Creuset, go for it. You will be getting something you can pass down to your kids, rather than a just-adequate, cutting-corners device that you will be suffering with long after the extra money for the Le Creuset will no longer matter.
I like that I can start the fondue on the stove and transfer it to the base to keep warm. I would like it better if the flame would adjust a bit lower but it may be that I haven't quite figured it out yet. I also like that this product doesn't have a plug which gives me more options as to where it can be used, inside or out
