Save over 45% on this fondue set that's perfect for fall and winter

With temperatures cooling and the winter months not too far off, it's time to think about what's next now that the grill has been stowed away until spring. 

With all its ooey, gooey, drippy goodness, fondue has always been a natural small group staple when the weather starts to turn — so it's time to gear up for a serious fondue night with this Emile Henry Fondue Kit.

This collection includes everything you need to supply an intimate gathering of family or socially-distanced friends for partaking in the 400-year-old art of dunking meats, fruits and bread in quasi-molten foodstuff.  

As the lynchpin of the entire operation, the ceramic Emile Henry crock is up to the challenge, a high-grade pot from a company with a worldwide reputation for engineering premium ceramic cookware.

Emile Henry pots are known for their innovative Flame ceramic design, which diffuses heat faster while keeping contents hot longer as you dip bread, fruit, pretzels, chips, and other favorites.

Created just for fonduing, this crock works directly over a stovetop flame, in an oven or even placed on top of that grill you just put away to get your chocolate, cheeses or other sauces bubbling to just the perfect mushy consistency for dunking. It's even got a non-drip pouring rim so your table doesn't turn into a sloppy mess.

Of course, what's fondue without the fondue fork? So this collection gives you a set of four so everybody can join in safely with their own instrument.

The Emile Henry Fondue Kit is regularly priced at $99, but with the current deal, you can get it for half off at only $49.99.

Prices are subject to change.
