Previous reviews describe inproper use of the item
Well I dont actually have this fondue pot but I fealt I must clear the air on fondue pot usage.
The fondue pot is stainless steel. Stainless steel fondue pots are for oil based fondue. If you wish to make chocolate or cheese fondue you need to use a ceramic insert or cheese/chocolate specific fondue pots. Hoffritz along with other companies offer them.
So the above reviews about burnt cheese and chocolate well thats expected from a stainless steel fondue pot regardless of the brand. Now if the instructions or the product claim its usage is for cheese and chocolate well thats a different story.
Excluding recipe guide of course because those recipe guides are generic.
After carefully following all instructions in my recipe and for the fondue pot, the expensive cheese fondue I made burned rather quickly once it was ready to serve. The pot holding the sterno did not come with a cover and even when I used aluminum foil the heat was too intense. Next time I will use a smaller sized sterno. Since this product seems to be troublesome to so many people, I wonder if it's been recalled or if Hoffritz would accept a return????
We have had no luck heating the fondue in this fondue pot. It burns even when you turn the heat way down. We had to keep lighting the sterno and then putting it out again in order to keep the cheese from returning to its solid form. I'm not impressed.
HOFFRITZ DOES NOT STAND BEHIND ITS PRODUCTS
This Fondou Set looks and sounds great, just like the motorized toaster I recently bought from them, but when it stopped working, they failed to back it up with service. In fact, they told me there was nothing they could do, even if I paid for service. I guess they are another large corporation (Salton/Hoffritz also make the George Forman line) that is getting cheap goods from overseas and charging high prices for them. Too bad. They were great once. Caveat emptor.
