We never stopped fondueing after our parents introduced it to us in the late....mmmm...errr...60's. My current choice is an electric version by Cuisinart. We bought 2 of them and went to the electric because of the dangers of de-natured alcohol and the convenience of just turning on and letting it go. We have found that we break them out more often than we ever did the sterno driven models and we use them at parties for hot dips and taco meat and the like. Versatile , easy to clean and no longer uni-takers!
