Serving up fondue for another go-round

The Blomus 24 Piece Fondue Set makes entertaining easy.

Keeps the party going.

If my prediction for beer-can chicken gaining in popularity doesn't come true, I have a backup plan: fondue. The once-popular, and practically mandatory, party accessory seems to be making a comeback. In a world where Internet fads come and go like the dying breeze, I see no reason why the fondue party cannot once again dominate the casual get-together scene. Any planned interaction at a party serves two purposes: first to keep your guests entertained, but more importantly, set activities act as an ice-breaker.

Your guests will certainly be talking upon seeing this Blomus 24 Piece Fondue Set. Accommodating six guests, the set includes 12 dipping utensils and six resting bowls, which orbit around a large 3.9-quart nonstick fondue pot. The striking set is crafted from German-engineered stainless steel and stands 10 inches tall, with a 16.5-inch diameter.

With a fun, immersive (and delicious) activity to capture your guests' attention and imagination, your party is sure to be a hit. You really can't miss if you serve cheese or chocolate, and with the simple addition of a lit sterno can, you can please your guests with melted delights. Of course, at almost $500 for this particular set, one might wish to reconsider just cooking up some beer-can chicken.
