Several reviews say the cheese and chocolate burn easily. This would be a possibility in any direct-heat fondue pot. This one is a good size, however, to turn into a double boiler. We typically have a 3-course (cheese, broth, chocolate) fondue meal with this one pot:
Fill the fondue pot with water up to just below the handle screws. Toss a bowl inside (we use these to great success: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000050AV3/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and put the cheese in that. This makes a double boiler for your cheese. We typically crank the heat up to a 4 and that keeps it at a nice temperature for the cheese to remain a perfect consistency. After that, lift out the bowl and dump the water. Fill it up with your broth or oil and toss the poker-holder lid on. Repeat the cheese trick for the chocolate. 3 course meal, one fondue pot, no washing out the pot between courses.
We do have an issue with the length of the plug. We use an extension cord even though they say not to. That cord is way to short not to. I imagine the manufacturer was doing his best evil-genius-laugh when he put that on the label.
We've tested this thing in the dishwasher, and it seems to be ok so far.
