I've seen metal pots and ceramic pots. I've heard the metal are best for oil and the ceramic for cheese. Have you found that that is true? Thanks.
Yes that's right....the metal get too hot for cheese and chocolate....and the ceramic doesn't get hot enough for oil fondue.
I have two copper fondue sets that I always found a pain to light up. A few months ago, we purchased an electric metal one and it's worked great! I'd recommend an electric one over the others any day.
Soneone recommended a Le Creuset pot. It's heavy enough to handle oil cooking, but it's thcik enough to be able for subtle low heat for chocolates and such. Do you think this is right?
