Emile Henry Ceramic Cheese Fondue Set
+ $ shipping surcharge
As far as we’re concerned, any dish that’s centered around a mass of melty, gooey cheese will never go out of style (and is a necessary cold-weather hibernation food). This set comes with a pot, burner, stand, and six forks, so you can spear, dip, and twirl to your heart’s content. The pot is made of high-fired French Burgundy clay that’s designed to work with gas and electric cooktops up to 930° F, so you can make your fondue on the stove, then bring it straight to the table. The ceramic also effectively retains heat from the hot cheese, keeping it nice and melty all through dinner.

Details & Materials -
High-fired glazed ceramic made of French Burgundy clay. Forks are stainless steel. Burner is powder-coated steel.
9.45" in diameter x 3.54" H and holds 2.6 quarts
Care & Notes -
Pot and forks are dishwasher safe. Do not clean with abrasive cleaners or scouring pads. Soak for 10 minutes to remove any burned-on residue. Burner and stand should be hand washed only.
Always heat the cookpot slowly, using low to medium heat. Never heat the cookpot when empty.
When heated, the cookpot will expand slightly, which can create small, thin cracks in the glaze. These cracks are not a flaw, but show the cookpot’s resistance to temperature change.
Ceramic pot is heatproof up to 930˚ F, and is safe for use in oven, microwave, and on stovetop. Compatible with gas and electric cooktops. Not compatible with induction cooktops.
Burner should be filled with denatured alcohol (not included, but easily found at hardware stores). To fill, pour denatured alcohol into the burner over the sink, or have a cloth available to wipe up any spillage. Fill just enough to soak the fuel receptacle/wick. Do not overfill. No free-flowing fuel should be visible.
Place burner into the metal stand, grasp handle and turn clockwise to fully open the flame regulator. To light the burner, we recommend using a safety lighter or a long-stem match stick.

The secret behind Emile Henry's high-quality and stunning ceramic ovenware? French Burgundy clay, which slowly diffuses cooking heat to the center of the cooking dish and then retains it. Since 1850 from their original workshop in Burgundy, they've been helping cooks bake their crispiest loaves and stew up their most decadent dinners.View Full Profile
