Suitable for meat, cheese and chocolate, MasterClass' fondue set uses gel fuel or methylated spirits. The central part of the set is an enamelled cast iron bowl which offers excellent heat retention for long, lazy fondue sessions and boasts a contoured splash guard design for anti-splash safety reasons. The set is completed by six colour-coded fondue forks so you can be sure everyone uses their own utensil.
We love this set's classic, vintage Swedish looks with its single side handle, graduated red exterior and cream interior. Powered by gel fuel or methylated spirits, the set's pot is made of ultra-tough, heavyweight cast iron for excellent heat distribution and retention. It sits on a splash guard to protect against drips and comes complete with six long-stemmed fondue forks with colour-coded handles.
Another set that's powered by gel fuel or methylated spirits, KitchenCraft's fondue set is an excellent three-in-one option that comes with two fondue cooking choices — a ceramic bowl (perfect for cheese and chocolate) and a stainless steel metal pot, both of which fit neatly on the metal stand. There's also a set of six colour-coded fondue forks to avoid mix-ups.
