Having fondue is a fun and sociable event, but there is nothing that can ruin your evening as fast as having your fondue pot break under extreme heat or having your meal burn to the bottom of the pot.

Plug it in, set the temperature, dip and enjoy. You should fully research the product you are considering before spending your money. Make sure to look at the length of the power cord to ensure your nearest electrical outlet is close enough… (or use an extension cord.)

Cuisinart CFO-3SS Electric Fondue Maker
If you want the best fondue pot that is powerful and reliable, it is hands down the Cuisinart CFO-3SS Electric Fondue Maker. This is an electric fondue pot that is used to make chocolate, cheese, broth, and oil base fondue. It works for both western and Asian style fondue (hot pot). The Cuisinart CFO-3SS comes with all of the essential accessories such as the base, bowl, temperature probes, fondue forks, and a fork rack. The fondue pot itself is a quart bowl that has a non-stick interior for easy cleaning. Don’t worry, the non-stick material is not harmful so don’t worry about scraping it off and accidentally digesting it. Also, quarts is more than enough for people whether you are using cheese, chocolate or broth. Since this is an electric fondue maker, it needs to be plugged into the wall. However, the power cord and nice, sturdy, and long enough to reach most wall outlets in the kitchen. Attached to the power cord is a temperature control dial that is removable and goes from very low heat to high heat settings. Although it takes a bit longer than fuel based fondue sets to bring broth to a boil, the Cuisinart CFO-3SS Electric Fondue Maker is more consistent at maintaining liquids at a certain temperature.
VonShef Fondue Set
If you are looking for the best fondue pot that looks nice and stylish, you may want to give the VonShef Fondue Set a look. It is made from red cast iron porcelain enamel, which is quite suitable with cheese and chocolate fondues. Although you can make broth based fondues, it is not ideally given the material is meant to incubate at low temperatures. Also, the cast iron porcelain is extremely easy to clean and much easier than stainless steel. The set comes with color coded long stemmed fondue forks, which makes it easy to keep track of everyone’s utensils. The fondue forks look quite nice and feel very premium. The entire unit also comes with an adjustable flame burner with snuffer. You need to fuel it with either methylated spirits or solid fondue gel, which is sold separately. For those who want to be able to take this with you on the road or camping, the VonShef Fondue Set is great because it runs via fuel and not electricity. It is also quite a safe device as all of the dangerous components are well shielded from you. There is a splash protector ring to prevent liquids from spilling out while you are dipping.
Wilton Chocolate Pro 3-Tier Chocolate Fountain
For those who want the exclusively make chocolate or cheese fondue, the Wilton Chocolate Pro is the best fondue pot for you. This device is perfect for those who want to impress their guests with a fancy chocolate fountain. It can hold up to pounds of melted chocolate and works by maintaining the chocolate at a temperature that prevents it from solidifying. The melted chocolate goes with a cool level flow system and allows you guests to dip all sorts of goodies into the chocolate. This is a great gimmick for parties and does a great job in maintaining consistency and flow. While ideal for chocolate, we tried putting melting cheese instead and it works as well. The Wilton Chocolate Pro is certainly not the most expensive chocolate fondue fountain on the market, but it is also not the cheapest. We think it offers the best value for those who want a chocolate fountain because it works, is quite durable, stylish enough to be respectable at any party, and cheap enough to not break the bank. Unfortunately it doesn’t come with chocolate so you need to purchase that separately. The good thing is you don’t need to add oil or temper the chocolate.
First of all thanks for reading my article to the end! I hope you find my reviews listed here useful and that it allows you to make a proper comparison of what is best to fit your needs and budget. Don’t be afraid to try more than one product if your first pick doesn’t do the trick.
Most important, have fun and choose your Chocolate Fountains wisely! Good luck!
