Ok, so I read all the reviews and almost didn't buy it because some said it didn't regulate it correctly. Well i had a fondue party last night for 15 people and i bought 2 of these cuisinart pots! I did make the fondues on the stove and transfer them to the pots once they were done, but i found they had excellent capacity and worked perfectly. I did a cheese fondue, a chocolate fondue and a caramel fondue and I kept them around 2-3 temp level as suggested in the directions for maintaining temp. If it started to bubble too much, turned it down. Just like any cooking, you have to watch the pot. But they worked Amazing. They heated up as soon as you plug them in, which was perfect for transferring so there was no lag time. the consistency was great on all the fondues, and it stayed that way for hours. You just have to stir it every once in while,just like on the stove. Chocolate and cheese are particularly finicky. And if you don't stay on top of them, and you get a burn patch, it will kill your whole batch. But that has nothing to do with the pot. That's the cook!. I'm a chef and my instructer from culinary school was there too and we were both thrilled with how easy they were to use & clean .
