Cheese Fondue Recipes

A fairly constant temperature is required to keep melted cheese from solidifying. Enamelled cast iron or ceramic pots are ideal as they don’t get too hot and help prevent scorching of the delicate cheese fondue. We suggest not to fondue cheese in a metal fondue pot since metal conducts heat and is likely to result in burnt cheese.
