We just received the Cuisinart Electric Fondue Pot as a gift and I am more than satisfied with it! I must admit, at first I was super nervous about using it because I have read that it is very difficult to clean after using, but that is anything but true! While it is still hot, I can clean it out without any issue in less than five minutes! The pot itself is great and I didn't even have to stir the chocolate fondue while we were eating it. While the recommended setting was 5 for cheese, I felt that it was a bit high, because our cheese kept bubbling. The forks worked great for spearing the food and the fondue stayed warm throughout the entire use. My only complaint about this fondue pot is that the cord is really short so you literally have to have it plugged in right next to an outlet. We just use an extension cord to solve this issue, but other than that it is great.
