The fondue set, fondue forks and more for special occasions
A tasty fondue – a feast for the eyes but not just for special occasions!
Originally the word "fondue" was used to describe a cheese dish from Switzerland. Nowadays there are various different versions, and with a classically elegant and functional fondue set the different fondue creations taste twice as good.
Fondue – a favourite with many different varieties
Cheese fondue from Switzerland is the oldest variety of this dish, and in Germany it is often eaten at Christmas or New Year. Melted cheese, white wine and other ingredients are kept warm in a ceramic pot on a rechaud and pieces of white bread are dipped into the cheese. For meat or fish fondue, which are just as popular today, cookware made from stainless steel is used. As per the idea that was brought to us from Asia, hot stock is brought to the boil in the pot and mouth-sized morsels of meat and fish are cooked in the broth using special fondue forks. A vegetarian version of this dish using vegetables or a wine fondue can also be created. If you want to spoil your loved ones with something sweet, the chocolate fondue is an excellent idea, and involves dunking fruit into melted chocolate. A chocolate fountain can be used as a visual highlight and an attractive party piece as an alternative to a fondue pot.
The fondue pot – and what goes with it
In the WMF assortment of special cookware you will find a complete fondue set, containing all the important components you will need for a successful fondue. The following utensils in particular are indispensable:

As well as the fondue itself, you need various platters and serving bowls, for example for dips and salad, and serving cutlery.
