In the realm of cookware, plenty of overworked skillets probably wish they could enjoy the laid-back and undeniably chic life of the fondue pot. But here’s a little pot that wants it the other way around.
The new Five-Function Fondue Set from Chantal is out to prove that a fondue pot can be a kitchen workhorse without losing its cool (see the slideshow below). When not filled with melted chocolate or cheese, the removable 5-cup porcelain bowl can do double duty as a mixing or serving bowl. The 6-cup stainless-steel pot does meat fondue with ease, and it will gladly work overtime as a saucepot on the stove. And, together, the bowl and pot make a pretty convincing double boiler.
The set is $99.95 at Bakerscatalogue.com.
