Lightbulb Fondue Double boilers.

Looking for a good/decent Double boiler for Fondue use. Melting Pot resturants have some nice lookin ones, any like that? Looks like a single fondue pot + a metal insertable bowl. Pot narrows as it rises ti about... 8" i would guess from around 10".

oddly enough, since the resurgance in popularity of fondu, common places like Target(Tar-gjay:-) havve decent, ceramic coated, fondu vessels, with quite a variety of styles and colors to choose from.

I can check with a buddy I know, he owns The Melting Pot, here in Virginia Beach. Andy will tell me where he gets his. I think they are what you are looking for, I'll pm you the details. Feel free to google his restaurant, he has done really well for himself with a fine dining fondu place.

That would be the style i am looking for. I saw them sunday when i was at the one in SC. looked like some good stuff. Would have to get a heating rig but that is easy just but a target version and stuff the pan away. I would defiantly appriciate it. my brother would like one two, so i'd probably get a set of pots for his B-day. Melting pot is a chain store.. is the the actual owner of the chain? Defiantly a good place to eat.. EXPENSIVE thou. lets just say the last outing there was $300... 6 people. came home stuffed.

Andy, he owns the local store

I just put in an e-mail, he'll lemme know. The pots could be easy to find, just the cost might be exorbinate. The burners on the otherr hand, are cheap and inexpensive. You could use anything from a single butane burner, to a plug in wall unnit electric.

Nova5,
I'm not sure if this is what your looking for, but I have a great fondue pot that works great both for a double boiler (cheese, chocolate) plus for meat. My bf got if for me from crate and barrel.

It's the 5th one. There is a glass insert that works for the double boiler

I'm lookin at an ArcoSteel unit. Hopefully i can find it at the local Bed&Bath'n'Beyond, so i can get a measurement of the opening to get extra inserts for it.
