My first attempt I heated the oil in a pot on the stove first, big mistake!!! When you go to transfer the hot oil into the stainless steel fondue pot it splashes everywhere!!!! Skip heating it on the stove, it heats quickly enough right in the pot.
Also, one site recommended putting a chunk of raw potato in the bottom of the oil to reduce splattering. I did this and didn't have a problem. The splash guard provided also helped.
I would recommend this size pot for up to four people. If you are doing a 'meal' in the pot, not just cheese or chocolate, I would recommend two pots for more than four people.
Some reviewers complained about the power chord. It is short and I had to use an extension chord (need a high voltage chord with three prongs) and had no problem with the chord disconnecting from the fondue pot. It magnetically connects to the pot so if the chord is accidentally tripped over it wont send the boiling liguid everywhere. A GREAT safety feature when my dog came smelling around the table and pulled the chord. All I had to do was reconnect it to get it heating again.
Recipes provided are basic but there are plenty of online sites for more. Overall, this was a huge it and my family asked me to do this over and over again. I've even pulled it out on weeknights using a Mojo broth. I just cut up some chicken and raw vegetables, pour the ingredients in the pot and in ten minutes my family is 'cooking' themselves dinner. Great for busy weeknights. Also used the cheese fondue as an appetizer for a girls wine night at my house. The ladies loved it. I cant cook a lick, so they were very impressed but I didn't have to worry about messing it up.
This is a great set that I'd recommend for two people. I've done up to four, but have needed to make a second round of cheese for that amount of people.
It is very helpful to put already boiling water into the bottom of the pot, or else the heating plate has a hard time getting the contents of the ceramic pot hot enough.
Cooking meats in just the metal bowl has been fine; it does get hot enough.
For the price point this is definitely the fondue pot I recommend to friends, who inevitable always want one after coming over for a fondue dinner,
You can find great recipes online and if you look up Melting Pot fondue recipes and look around, you can find a full three course. I had the Melting Pot beer cheese fondue first and the oil-less red wine and broth for my main course. It was delicious!
One of the great things about this product is that, since you have the separate ceramic bowl, you don't necessarily have to clean the pot in the middle of the meal. First, I made the broth and left it to simmer on the stove. Then I told everyone to get the veggies out while I began to make the cheese fondue. Meanwhile, I had water heating in the steel fondue pot, with the empty ceramic bowl on top. Once the cheese melted, I poured it into the ceramic bowl, which was already hot. Everyone loved it! Since it is not direct heat, the cheese remained evenly heated. The only draw back is that it was hard to get the cheese to a comfortable temperature, but I'm sure with a little practice and patience, I'll get it right.
After that course, I just took potholders and lifted the ceramic bowl out, put it in the sink, again using the potholders, dumped out the water in the silver bowl, and poured the broth from the stove in. Viola! Ready for the next course. This time, again, the drawback is that it is hard to get the right temp, but I think this would be true with any pot; you just have to learn the proper setting and be patient. With practice and practice, we'll get it right!
I think that it would be a pain to try to have three courses, since you would have to clean the cheese course to get to the chocolate. This product is the only one that I found that even offers two CONVENIENT options.
