I must say, when I find a good product I love to share it with everyone I know. The great thing about my blog, is I may not know each and every one of you, but if I find something that I love I can share it here with all of you. I recently discovered a fun new way to fondue – Velata. It’s velata fondue fun!
Velata is made by the same people who do Scentsy. So, this product is similar to the Scentsy candle warmer, but it has a food safe silicone dish on top to hold chocolate. The dish keeps the chocolate the perfect temperature without stirring! It can also be placed on the top rack of your dishwasher for easy clean up.
The warmer has an adjustable dimmer switch on the cord to keep the chocolate, etc, just the right temperature. In the past, I would use a crock pot to keep my fondue warm, but even the warm setting could get the fondue too warm. I found that I would have to plug and unplug the crock pot all the time to keep it just right for my guests. Thanks to Velata I don’t have to do that any more. The 25 watt bulb gently warms the chocolate with no scotching.
The warmers come in 3 designs in a variety of colors from black to orange. I personally like the red! So, not only are they functional, but they look stylish too.
Velata also has a line of premium chocolate to use in the Velata Fondue Warmer – caramel milk chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. They are premium Belgian chocolates that are formulated for the Velata warmer and have no fillers or preservatives. They are in pouches that allow you to microwave the chocolate for about a minute and pour it out of the easy pour spout right into your warmer.
The possibilities are endless with Velata. Not only can you do fondue, but think about how you could keep hot dips nice and warm when you entertain. They would be great to use for a family fun night, date night, book club, dessert party, etc. You can also use it for when you are making chocolates. It will keep the melted chocolate at the right consistency for dipping. This would work out great for holiday baking. I am planning on using Velata for gifts for the upcoming holiday season.
I love Velata so much that I signed up to be a distributor for them and make it possible for all of you to be able to purchase a Velata. So, today we are having a virtual Velata party! You can place an order for your own Velata fondue warmer by going to my Velata web page. Just click “buy”, then you will see “Real Mom Kitchen Online” and next to it it will say “join party”. Click “join party” and order. It’s that easy.
Each Velata fondue warmer comes with 4 fondue forks, but you can order additional forks too.
They also have lids that you can order seperately to cover the dish to store any left over chocolate which can be kept in the fridge or at room temperature!
Then I am also going to give away a Velata warmer with one of their premium chocolate pouches. Just leave a comment on this post telling me what you would want to use your Velata warmer for. You have until Saturday, September 15, 2012 at midnight (MST) to enter.
