I love to cook and I always look for new recipe ideas and different ways to cook and serve meals. For many years now I have enjoyed using fondue sets for a fun sit down meal. It is really very simple to do and it makes dinner interactive and what better way to enjoy a meal?

I use the electric fondue sets when I have dinner in this manner it is easier to keep the heat at a constant and that is very important when you are cooking meat in your fondue pot. There are also other options that have a candle for the heat source and that works very well with certain dishes and it is nice not to have the cord across the table.

The fondue set comes with several forks that are specially designed for use with the pot. These forks are usually color coated so that you can assign certain colors to different people. The reason this comes in handy is because sometimes we like our food cooked differently from others, maybe more on the rare side, others perhaps more well done and the color coating makes it easy to keep track.

When I have dinner using my fondue pot, I fill it up with some oil, you can use whatever works for you and your family. Some people are very health conscious and might prefer a specific oil or broth while others are ok with whatever is handy in the cupboard. I don't fill the pot too full because you need to consider that the oil level will rise once everyone has their meat in there to cook.

I enjoy using a variety of meats, you can have some chicken, beef, pork or any other type you like or you can use just one at a time. Sometimes with the mixture of meats, their seasonings can give everything the same flavor. As the oil bubbles and the food cooks, much of the seasoning falls off and the oil starts to take on a new flavor. This is ok by me depending on what I am cooking. If you really want to enjoy the flavor of your food and its seasonings, then just cook one type of meat for the meal.

I like to serve a nice side salad and some kind of bread to make this a full meal, sometimes I also have a veggie platter with some dip. It is nice to nibble on a variety of foods, share good conversation while cooking at the same time.

Buying a fondue set can be money well spent, there are so many recipe ideas and it is a lot of fun trying them out. Dinner, dessert or anytime you like, search the internet for various recipes and enjoy this alternative way of cooking.
