With thisLe Creuset fondue setyou prepare the most delicious cheese, meat or fish fondue. The fondue set consists of a cast-iron pan, a cast-iron base, six fondue forks and a burner with a flame regulator. Fire paste is not included. The fondue pan has a capacity of 2 litres, which is enough to enjoy a delicious fondue with six people. The pan has the characteristic cherry red colour of Le Creuset. Warm and very beautiful!
The choice for enamelled cast iron is a considered choice. This material absorbs heat evenly and retains it for a long time. This keeps the inside pan nicely at the right temperature for the best preparation. No worries about splashing oil or disjointed cheese fondue. Moreover, this pan can be used on the stove. Regardless of the heat source. Thanks to the cast-iron handles, the pan can also go into the oven without any problems.
Forks are an important part of your fondue set. That is why this set comes with six fondue forks with a wooden handle. Each of these handles has its own colour on the back. So you can always remember which fork is yours.
Use of the Le Creuset fondue set
The Le Creuset fondue set comes standard with a small booklet with four recipes for a successful fondue. This way you immediately make a head start with your new fondue set. You will notice that every fondue type requires a separate preparation. A meat fondue requires a completely different approach than, for example, a cheese fondue. It is therefore advisable to take a good look at this in advance.
Keep the pan warm by placing it on the cast iron base. In the base is place for the supplied torch. The advantage of this torch is that it works on both fire paste and methylated spirit. The box includes a tub of fire paste that immediately can be used. A small user guide is available for both methods. Once you have ignited the torch, adjust the air supply with the flame regulator. Do you want to extinguish the torch? Use the lid to close off the torch.
Cleaning the Le Creuset fondue pan
The same applies to the cleaning and maintenance of the pan as with all cast-iron pans from Le Creuset: Clean the pan before use and dry it properly. When using the pan on the stove or a cooker, make sure that the flame is no wider than the bottom of the pan. Do not place the pan under the cold tap after heating. Damage may occur. Make sure it has enough time to cool off. It is possible to clean the pan in the dishwasher, but bear in mind that with frequent use this can lead to a slight frosting of the enamel. The forks with wooden handle need to be washed by hand.
