Vintage finds…

10 Sep

We have a weakness for 50s and 60s kitchen ware, and we spend far too much time skulking around thrift shops. Trouble is, we are a magnet for fabulous finds. Take for instance, this little gem:

fonude

It’s a ceramic caquelon (fondue pot) by Landert, made in Switzerland. The pot, a handsome ochre yellow which holds 1 1/2 quarts,  is stamped Landert 22 near the handle. These darlings are made to go from stove top to table. We spotted this baby a week or so ago and resisted it, but lo and behold upon our return, it was still sitting there, unloved by those unable to recognize its true purpose in life: to fill our bellies with molten cheese! We scored it for $7.99.

    I found one of these yesterday at Goodwill! Have you been using yours? Do you use it to cook other things in?

    Hi Angela, good score for you! I haven’t tried cooking anything but cheese in it yet, but I will keep an open mind. Any ideas?
    Mine didn’t come with the stand, so I am substituting one from another fondue pot. I find the pot holds heat well.
    Let me know!
