Food has always been about a communal experience. From the earliest times, dinnertime was always an event. Nowadays, hunting down the evening meal may not require much more than a trip to the supermarket, but that in no way makes our meals any less reliant on others. While unseen individuals may be responsible for getting our food to the table, our instinctual desire to share food is hard to ignore. With family, friends, and fondue, of course.
The Trudeau Alto Electric Fondue Set offers a convenient and modern way to enjoy a communal eating experience. The set is around $140, and features six color-coded dipping forks along with individual fork guides to keep them in place. The 1,500-watt machine features a variable temperature control and is designed to be filled with broth, chocolate, or cheese.
The 2.5-liter stainless steel pot rests on top of a heating base complete with breakaway power cord. Guests are meant to gather around serving themselves at their own pace, creating a relaxing atmosphere sure to be enjoyable for all. Best of all, with modern convenience on your side (not to mention no open flames), the hunt for ingredients requires nothing more than a nice, safe trip to the store.
