First, let's talk about the one negative I encountered:
1. I was so eager to try this thing out that I immediately tossed some (high quality) chocolate into the bowl. I went digging around my kitchen for tea lights. Unfortunately, all I found were the slightly taller votive variety. No biggie, they fit inside. It should be good to go, right? If you use a taller tea light you will undoubtedly notice that the thing doesn't stay lit. It needs the shorter candle to allow for adequate air flow.
Other than that, let me tell you a little bit about the product. The bowl is (naturally) smaller than it would be in a regular mug of similar height to accomodate the little tea light hearth beneath. However, there is still plenty of space for contents. Two mugs, four forks included. This means that my wife can eat her zero sugar dark chocolate while I indulge in milk (real) chocolate. It's a beautiful thing.
I had always learned that you cannot melt cheese in tea lit fondue sets owing to a higher melting point than your average chocolate bar. I, however, was able to melt cheese. It was delicious. One thing you'll want to avoid is the temptation to put this thing in the microwave. I'm not saying that there is something wrong with the mug itself being in there. However, the microwave will cause your chocolate or cheese to separate into an unpleasant goo. Let the tea light do its thing, even if it takes a little longer.
When you're not using it as a fondue set, it is also a great mug. I crammed some biscotti into that little hearth because I wanted to feel like an innovator who found multiple uses for his fondue mug. In the end, I was just another idiot with biscotti crammed into his fondue-mug hearth.
If I never use the mugs again, they won't take up too much space in my cabinet. Even if I lose the fondue forks, I can still use the things. All in all, I can't think of a reason NOT to have these mugs around (except that my doctor seems to think I need to dip fewer things into chocolate and cheese).
Next up, I will use these for when company comes over. Two people can easily tag team a mug each. Though, I'm not sure how safe it is to get between me and melted cheese while I have a sharp fork.
First, realize what you're getting. These are the snack equivalent of a fondue meal. They don't make the cheese or chocolate 'hot', just very warm. In a lot of ways, this is better since you can heat up and snack on your foods more easily. Side note, I'd recommend liquid cheese like velveeta packets for the best cheese experience. Shredded cheese doesn't really melt right. Dipping chocolate melts perfectly though and didn't burn.
Second, remember how candles actually work. If you put a candle into an enclosed space, it will burn up all the oxygen and go out. For this reason, you need to have this mug in an area with air movement. A ceiling fan, an open window, an oscillating fan on the other side of the room...just something. If you keep it sitting in an area where no air can get to it (not much! it still just a tiny candle), you'll have trouble keeping it lit.
Hope this helps! It really is a very clever product and I am really glad I purchased it.
I'm going to be buying additional sets of this fondue pot, so it can be used while hosting as well!
(On a related note, we used the Trader Joe's ready-to-eat cheese fondue - it was perfect!)
Here's the solution: If you're handy with a table saw, you can (very carefully) cut a slot into the lower half of the mug opposite the pre-made opening. That keeps the air flowing and your candle burning. If you don't have the tools or skills to do this without maiming yourself, you're better off looking for something else. Anyway, this "fix" would generally be too much hassle to make a product like this worth it to me. The only reason I did this instead of returning it is that I liked that the mugs fit on my mug rack. It should work straight out of the box and it doesn't (at least for me).
We tried one mug of chocolate and one of cheese - the chocolate melted much faster until we added a second candle to the cheese mug (and they fit!), which helped. You'll want to be sure to watch these fairly constantly so nothing burns.
My set came with four small fondue forks but no tea lights, so be prepared. And if you put two candles in one mug, the mug WILL get hot, but not if you leave it at one.
Really great product - I'm about to order more :)
