VonShef Raclette Grill
This is the perfect centerpiece for your next dinner party! Recreate the rustic alpine ambiance and flavors in the comfort of your own home!
Our grill has 12 individual non-stick coated Raclette pans, which can be used to melt cheeses, or grill vegetables.
Unlike other Raclette grills, our model combines a grill and fondue set, getting the best of both dinner party experiences. Although fondue is traditionally a communal pot of melted cheese which bread is dipped into, over the years there have been modernization's to the concept too. You can fill the pot with oil, and cook a variety of raw meats, or deep fry pieces of fish coated in batter. You can even indulge your sweet tooth by dipping fruit into a pot of melted chocolate!
Any firm to hard cheese that melts well without too much oil can be melted in the Raclette pans. This obviously depends on your own tastes, but for that authentic Alpine flavor we would recommend using traditional Swiss or French Alpine cheeses like the appliances namesake Raclette, Tomme de Savoie, Gruyere, or Beaufort, all of which can be obtained from your local deli counter.
This Raclette grill makes for an unforgettable dinner party! The "cook at the table" aspect of the appliance makes it really stand out, and acts as a center piece for the evening

First let me say that no way in hell this is for 12 people! I mean, who comes up with this number? maybe, but only may be the pans underneath would be for 12 but only in an emergency. Just my wife and I used it and the size was good for us two. I think the maximum you can go is 4 people comfortably. the grill surface is way to small for more people.
The fondue pot is made of very cheap material and you need to be extremely careful not to burn the cheese because the heat for the pod is not adjustable. it sits rather lose in the little hole and I can see it tipping over if you are maybe a wee tipsy or not careful. it develops enough heat though to melt the cheese rather quick and keeps in really nice and liquid.
One of my biggest critiques would be the material of the grill surface. it is super cheap and thin metal and bends and twists. I can see it long its shape over time.
The heat distribution for the little pans underneath is super uneven. two of the pans on each side getting a lot of heat because they are also getting a lot of heat from the fondue heater and you need to be careful what you put in there. there other ones are getting enough heat to have fun with them.
Overall I think its worth the price and considering what a quality brand name raclette costs it's a good deal. You get what you pay for but I think 4 people can have a nice evening around it.
I hope it holds up. It seems to get pretty hot. The corners seem to have less heat, due to coils not extending all the way over...(design). But other than that it's great!
For the complainers: This way of preparing food is not meant to feed you quickly, its a different way of eating, WHILE socializing with friends or family. It is meant to be done over the course of an hr or even longer. If you want to get full fast and be done eating quickly, I suggest to get McDonalds. This is meant to take time, bring a fun and delicious atmospere to the table on special occasions. Ladies night, simply a nice eve with friends or on someones Birthday, or as it is common in Germany where I am from- for Christmas Eve or New Years! Neither one of us walked away hungry and we all had a great time.
Additionally, the electrical components were cause for concern. While we were grilling the plug got extremely hot, almost too hot to touch. I was concerned that an electrical fire may begin in the middle of dinner.
I'm sad about this because I really wanted this product to work out well. But I think that the materials that were used were just very cheap.
1) Do cut the meat thin, unless you want rare meet. The element is not hot enough to cook meat itself all that well.
2) If you plan on using this with more than 8 people, it can be just a bit of a challenge, unless you decide to do this cocktail-party style, as the footprint of the Raclette is really designed for no more than 8, probably more like 6.
3) I'm not sure that this is made of the best quality, so it may not stand the test of multiple uses. I'll let you know.
Because of those three items, I gave it four vs five stars.
All in all, I think this is fun and my guests (and I) certainly loved it!
