Sometimes good things come in small packages, but still aren't easily transportable. Melted cheese, for example. Good on practically anything and everything, the simple pleasure offers an easy way to change the flavor dimensions of a wide variety of foods. Sometimes it's best by itself, served with something as simple as bread or crackers. As versatile as melted cheese is, it just doesn't travel well. Unless you happen to have a way to melt it on the go.

The Boska Partyclette ToGo Raclette Set ($25) is a cheese-melting contraption for enjoying melted cheese on the go. The raclette set consists of a nonstick platter and a wooden frame. The heating of the contents of the pan is achieved by three tea lights; no electricity is needed. Also included is a spatula for scooping out the deliciousness and onto the food base as desired. Portable and easy to use, the device adds a new dimension to everything from picnics to camping trips.

Similar to fondue, raclette refers to the scraping (from the French word racler) of heated cheese from a round which is then served with potatoes and other foods. It's traditionally a communal dining experience occurring in a relaxed atmosphere and often with drinks. Now, there's no reason melted cheese can't join in on the fun, no matter where the party happens to be.
