I recently purchased a little 11-piece Fondue Set from Walgreen's today that I got for half price per the Manager because there were no instructions included. Where can I find missing instructions online? I've tried searching the web for the distributor but no luck with instructions. I know nothing about fondue, so I don't even know how to light the burner. Help!
What is the brand name of your fondue set? Sometimes you can put the brand name and either the words "user manual" or "instructions" into the search engine.
The only name on the box is on the bottom. It says Made in China, Distributed by: East West Distributing Co. Deerfield, IL 60015-4616 Item #646623. It comes with:
* 1 Stainless Steel Pot w/cover
* 1 Chrome Wire Rack
* 1 Chrome Plated Burner
* 1 Stainless Steel Plate
* 6 Stainless Steel Forks
Wow, Jo........I just don't know. I've spent quite a bit of time trying to find information on that fondue set. I think I'd call Walgreens and explain that there were no instructions....at all!!!
Go to the library and find a cook book that includes directions for making fondue.
The process is not much more than heating up something like melted cheese or chocolate and dunkng chunks of bread in it.
Similar problem. Bought a $129.00 cuisinart rotating lazy susan stainless steel fondue set at Filene's going out of business sale last year for 19.99. All equipment is there but no instructions.
I received a 21 piece fondue set for christmas and no instructions. I found a web site www.fantes.com/
if by instructions you mean a cookbook there are alot on ebay... heres one:
But there are a lot more. Just do a search on Fondue Cookbook.
I still have a Fondue pot from the 60's from my deceased father in-law. I think thats why I keep it. But in those days we used it a lot... he would cut steak in bite size pieces and we all cooked our own to taste...
i thought it was because I bought mine at the Salvation Army. I opened the box, and it was clear that it hadn't been touched. When I opened everything up I was disappointed as to there not being any instructions. Then I thought that the original owner had taken and lost them. Turns out they just don't come with instructions based on all the other folk that don't have and can't find....just like me...the one towards the top of this string that refers to a site for instructions...specifis a metal fondue pot with alcohol burner.
I too purchased several of the sets from Walgreens. Check out this website, the burner on the right of the page looks exactly like mine, hopefully this helps :)
DO NOT OVERFILL ALCOHOL BURNER. Use no more than 3 fluid ounces of denatured alcohol, or liquid fondue fuel to fill your burner. More alcohol may cause excessive flames. 3 Ounces will burn approximately 90 minutes. If less time is required, use 2 ounces of fuel.
This is all you need to know. Follow the link provided above. Fantes.Com then just look up fondue recipes online, allrecipes.Com is a good site.
It's so simple. You need a fondue oil 2 light up the fondue. Just look at images to show you how to start your fondue.
You can try contacting East West Distributing to ask for a manual. If you tell them there was no manual when you purchased it (no need to tell them you got it for half price because it had no manual) they usually send you a free one. Looks like there is no 800 number, but if you write, they might not reply.

I love fondues and I'm online actually looking for one cause my new hubby has never had it before. He's sick with cancer so I am trying to let him experience as much as I can with cooking different things. Anyway. I don't think I've ever had instructions in other sets I've had. Here's a site with lighting directions www.bestfondue.com/
Be very careful around kids or pets knocking the burner over. No sets come with fuel by law but you can get at any hardware or CVS or Walgreens, Hobby Lobby. The gel fuel is a bit safer. I prepared my fondue on the stove and then transferred it to the pot to keep warm. I'm a bit of a clean freak and didn't want to over stain my fondue pots. OK enough info ha ha Joy
