Bring on the cheese: Our funkiest fondue pots

Last Saturday in Zurich’s Niederdorf I got a whiff of it: That pungent smell of cheese seeping out of the Swiss Chuchi restaurant. I’ve been dreaming about fondue ever since. For therapeutic reasons, and in time for the melted cheese season, I’ve put together my favourite fondue pots for you.

Although I love cheese, I don’t like fondue. Slices of mountain cheese for breakfast? Yep, I can definitely handle that. A tasty raclette from the tabletop BBQ? Gimme, gimme! But dunking bits of bread in melted cheese? Now that’s where I draw the line. If you insist on fondue, then I’ll go for a Chinoise or Bourguignonne. In spite of my fondue aversion, I browsed our shop for the funkiest fondue pots.

One-horse open sleigh

Finding a quiet spot these days can be trickier than finding a tourist attraction without a sea of selfie sticks. Faster, louder and flashier – standing out is the name of the game. Where did the good old times go? Like sitting on a bench and watching the world go by. No bleeping smartphones, screaming kids or honking cars. Just shutting up for a minute and enjoying the silence. Stepping it down a notch and enjoying the moment. What could better set the mood than a cosy-looking fondue set shaped like a sleigh? Bonus: It comes with a hot cooking stone.

I see you

Moitié-moitié? Savoyarde? With champagne? With morel mushrooms? With Gorgonzola? With tomatoes? There are countless varieties of the cheesy dish. And yet, I never warmed to any of them. I’m starting to repeat myself, I know. But I just wanted to make sure I was clear about my aversion. In any case, go for this pot and you’ll definitely know what you’ve been served. Nothing adulterated or diluted here. After all, when someone says cheese, they should mean cheese. #cheeseislife

On the slopes, get set, go!

After autumn comes winter. With winter comes the ski season. With the ski season comes the après-ski season. The après-ski season is... hmmm, good question. I only have very blurry memories. So let’s ignore my blackout and proceed to what’s essential: It’s fondue time!! As far as I know, there’s no such thing as a drive-thru fondue shack. For this reason, the girls and boys at Koenig put their heads together and strapped a pair of skis to this fondue pot. Thanks to this design, you can now enjoy the cheesy lava doing 90 kmh on a black piste... and you won’t even have to stop. By the way: In an emergency, you can use the fondue forks as ski poles.

A hot little oven

How cute is that? A fondue set in the shape of a miniature wood oven. You can choose between melting cheese or placing a grill at the top. So if you dislike fondue like me, this oven is quickly turned into an indoor BBQ. A particularly original and realistic feature is the way the oven works: It requires real wood to heat up. However, I fear that you will have to add wood quite frequently. Consider it a fondue pot and heater in one. Oh, and it will probably smoke out your apartment at the same time...

Barrels of cheese

A barrel, a bar and lots of cheese – that’s the following fondue pot in a nutshell. Having said that, my description is not quite accurate. After all, this wooden monstrosity should only be set up and used outdoors. Along with the fondue placed in the middle, there’s plenty of space for numerous glasses, forks, bread baskets, sauce dishes, rubbish bins, bicycles, jackets, bags, small apartments and a pirate ship. So you get quite a lot at a relatively reasonable price. Need a conclusion? I think the marketing slogan says it all: «Leaves nothing to be desired.»

Say cheese, please

This fondue pot and its four included forks are all grinning like Cheshire cats. But that’s as cheesy as it gets. This product was designed for melting chocolate only. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I like chocolate fondue. If you find it hard to go without your beloved emojis when you’re eating, I highly recommend getting this pot. Other than that, I’m not a big fan. It’s all a bit too cheesy for my taste.

To wine or not to wine?

Whether or not you should pour wine in your fondue is as fundamental a question as if you should put pineapple on your pizza. To get back to the first question: I don’t know because I don’t eat fondue. To answer the second question: It’s not really a question as such, as pineapple belongs to a pizza as much as football belongs to Bella Italia. Unfortunately, I don’t think this barrel-shaped fondue pot contains any wine. Maybe it will make your fondue taste of plonk, even if you don’t add any wine. Who knows what was stored in this wee barrel before...

Agent fondue with a licence to melt

Want to enjoy a discrete fondue with a small group of carefully selected people? Then this fondue pot is for you. It’s camouflaged up and will allow you to eat your cheese totally unnoticed. No more need to worry about too many forks piercing the gooey mass, discovering ownerless bits of bread or encountering uninvited guests. Camouflage, baby! PS: Should things get serious, you can use your fork as a lance and slam the fondue pot – with or without its contents – on your enemy’s head.

Holy cow

Grab the bull by its horns, they say. This fondue pot lets you do just that. Even though the design looks more like a cow, you need to grab it by the horns. There’s no other way. Unless you’re into third-degree burns, that is. In that case, your skin would turn about as red as the colour of this pot. Maybe the fondue even tastes better with the pot’s «fresh from the cow» feel. I doubt it.

cool.
Habt ihr so einen Bericht auch mit Raclett?
Oder all in one Lösungen?
Wäre interessiert.

danke für den bericht! :-)

Vielen Dank fürs positive Feedback. Zur Frage: Was meinst du genau mit "All-in-One-Lösungen"? Ein Produkt, mit welchem du sowohl Racelette als auch Fondue zubereit kannst? Mir ist gerade nichts Derartiges bekannt, ich mache mich aber gerne auf die Suche. :)

Es gibt raclett-öfeli, mit pfännchen die auch pizza und anderes wärmen können.

Hat jemand Erfahrung? Unsere Idee zu noch mehr Geselligkeit. Wir möchten an einem Event, das die Gäste Ihre Käsefondue am Tisch auf dem Rechaud selber kochen. Die Zutaten werden entweder ungekocht im Caquelon an den Tisch gebracht und die Tischrunde ist selber besorgt. Oder wie stellen die Zutaten einzeln auf den Tisch und die Tischrunde mischt und kocht selber. Frage Reicht die Hitze vom Rechaud, gibt es etwas zu beachten? Danke

28.01.2019
User Raphael Knecht

Ich spreche hier nicht aus persönlicher Erfahrung, diverse Kollegen meinten jedoch, dass das wohl sehr schwierig werden dürfte. Die Hitze des Rechauds reicht wahrscheinlich nicht aus, um das Fondue zuzubereiten – zum Warmhalten ja, aber kaum zum Zubereiten.

Eine Frage an Raphael Knecht: "Fondue" ist ein Französisches Wort und heisst zu Deutsch "geschmolzen", das geht nun mal vor allem mit Käse oder evtl. auch noch mit Schokolade. Nun soll er mir mal erklären wie er denn beim Chinoise oder Bourguignon die Fleischstücke zum Schmelzen bringt!?

11.10.2018
User Raphael Knecht

Nicht ich bringe das Fleisch zum Schmelzen, sondern umgekehrt. :)

User svekap

Es geht ja um den geschmolzenen Inhalt. Ob es Fett oder Käse ist, ist in dem Fall egal. Oder ist das Brot, dass du ins Fondue tauchst auch geschmolzen?
