Fondue, long part of dining tradition as much as entertaining fare, makes an elegant appearance in this Le Creuset Traditional Fondue set. The enamel coating inside ensures that the pot will not absorb odors or flavors while cast iron construction helps in retaining heat so you can dip over and over and not have to reheat. Plus, it's dishwasher safe. Includes a black enamel burner and stand, 6 stainless fondue forks with different colored ends, and a cast iron, enamel coated fondue pot. Cooks and heats on a stovetop equally well.About Le Creuset...Since 1925, artisans have been crafting Le Creuset cookware in the French village of Fresnoy Le Grand. Each piece of Le Creuset cast iron cookware is handcast, polished, double enamel-coated and then fired, resulting in some of the finest quality cookware available. Cast iron is one of the best materials for distributing heat gently and thoroughly and is ideal for induction ranges. The strong enamel coating will not absorb odors or flavors, and is easy to clean. Heavy lids securely seal in moisture and flavor. Le Creuset cookware comes in a variety of sizes, colors and styles to match any kitchen and cooking preference. So lasting, you'll pass it on to the next generation of promising cooks.
Ooh la la! Le Creuset, famous for its beautiful enameled cast-iron cookware, offers this handsome, heavyweight fondue set that is wonderful for an intimate party or romantic dinner. Made in France, whose famous Alps are dotted with dozens of authentic fondue restaurants, it turns out a delicious meal with little fuss. The trick to fondue is keeping it evenly heated for the length of a party or dinner--cheese fondue in particular separates or burns onto the pot if the temperature varies or the pot has hot spots. This fondue set, with its even conductivity of cast iron, maintains a regular, gentle heat that keeps cheese, chocolate, or other sauces smooth and well-heated. The pot rests above a heavy, black cast-iron stand, which shelters an adjustable alcohol burner. Brightly colored, sturdy and charming, this is a set to be passed down through many generations of cooks. --Maria Dolan

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.
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.
A beautiful gift for any occasion, in ANY color!
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.
