Fondue is a fun method to use for serving food for a small group. This may be the perfect option for a small get-together on Super Bowl Sunday. Anytime you are serving fondue
there are some safety tips that are important to keep in mind.
- Always cook the fondue on the stove, heating to required temperature and then transfer to the fondue pot. A fondue pot will keep your creation at a constant temperature but is not able to cook the fondue. Do not transfer hot simmering oil from a separate pan into a fondue pot, it is too dangerous; use the fondue pot on the stove to heat the oil.
- Use a trivet to protect your table from a hot fondue pot.
- If entertaining more than a total of 4 people, invest in more fondue pots for ease of use.
- To avoid spattering of oil and broth, keep food dry and keep the amount of food in the fondue pot to a minimum.
- Never leave pot unattended. It is best to entertain with fondue when children are not attending. If children are attending, they must be closely supervised.
- The fondue fork is for cooking food, not eating. The fork can become dangerously hot. Using the fondue fork for eating also promotes the spread of germs.
