Velata Fondue Fun and a giveaway

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.

  3. This is such an awesome idea! If I had one, I would surprise my mom and give it to her for her birthday and help lift her spirits! She recently just had ear surgery and is cooped up in the house and can’t go outside for awhile! This would give her an opportunity to do something fun and different with the family! Plus, she just LOVES fondue! 🙂

  4. I would use this for date night with the hubby, and Strawberries and homeade brownies and cookies in the white chocolate velata!!

  5. I love to dip pretzel rods in chocolate…or melted butterscotch chips. Mmmm!!

    Thanks so much for this chance! 🙂

  6. Gosh these look great! I ordered two sets: 1 for my daughter and 1 for my daughter-in-law for Christmas gifts. They’re both busy young working women and they love to entertain with family and friends, so they’ll love them. But I didn’t get one for me! 🙁

  7. How cute are these. I would love to win one. The first thing my family would make is strawberries dipped in chocolate.

  8. I have always wanted to try fondue. I think it would be really fun to try some fruit, graham crackers, and marshmallows. I would love to win a warmer! I would use it to have a fun night at home with my husband–watch a movie and dig in to some yummy fondue!

  9. I’d use it for my girls night out!! And also for my 6 year old – she would love to dip her apples into the carmel…

  10. My sister and daughter LOVE fondue!!!! If we had one of those, my daughter would use it ALL THE TIME when she has friends over and I would bring it out when my sister visits for special wine and cheese fondue sister date. I would LOVE to winthis.

  11. Omigosh! I have never heard of these. I would love to have one. It would be great to have one for family gatherings, showers and other parties. We are chocoholics in my family.

  12. Oh how I would love to win a warmer! I’ve heard so much about them but I have to see it/taste it to believe it. 🙂 I would start with strawberries and marshmallows….oh maybe some of the frozen nectarines I have too.

  13. Whoa!! This is popular!! I would use it for dipping pretzels, first—but the possibilities are endless, I would imagine!!

  14. I would use this for the Rotel dip that I make with half Velveeta cheese and half cream cheese and then mild Rotel tomatoes. It is so good, but it needs to be at the right temperature to stay dippable, if that’s a word.

  15. I would LOVE to win this & would use it for dipping pretzels & chocolates–especially with the holidays coming up!

  16. We always have fondue with my sister and her husband, and it makes a great appetizer for family functions, and, of course, dipping anything in chocolate is perfect for game nights with friends.

  17. I’m definitely in the mood for some cheese fondue! Green apples, bread, steak, veggies….Yum!

  18. besides desserts, it would be invaluable for making coated candies – what a great product!

  19. I would use it for dipping fruit and oreos debbie jackson,

  20. My friends and I play a dice game called Bunco once a month during the school year. We have themes for each month and our theme for next March is 70’s/Fondue. I am hosting that one, but I don’t have a fondue pot! It would be great to have my OWN fondue pot and not have to borrow one!!!!

  21. I’d use it for dessert after date night. I love chocolate! And if I buy some strawberries, my husband loves it, too.

  22. Hi this is awesome! I am a scentsy addict and have never seen this before! I would first make cheese dip using queso blanco mixed with some picante sauce and dip tortilla chips in it YUM! I agree that the little dipper crock pot eventually gets to hot and starts to burn the cheese. Perfect for football season too! Thanks 🙂

  23. I host a Fondue Party every year as well as make it for special occasions, holidays, and for good eatin’. I have an amazing Chipotle Swiss Fondue recipe!

  24. I’d use it filled with chocolate at holiday parties. The kids would love to dip their own treats!

  25. oh, I love this idea!!! I would use it to melt chocolate to dip strawberries, for sure!!
    thank you for the chance to win!

  26. I would bring this to the school where I work for a sweet treat to share during mandatory after-school meetings!

  27. I think this would be one of those always on the kitchen island ready to snack kind of items! With 4 kids who are always hungry this could be life changing 🙂

  28. I would use it when the kids come over for dipping fruit and would also be great at Christmas time!

  29. I would use it for a fun girls night with my daughters. They would think it’s so fun to dip fruits, marshmallows, etc in it while we watch a movie or play board games. Fun!

  30. I have a “warmer mini crockpot” but the things eventually burn in it..this sounds amazing!

  31. I’d use it for dipping candies at Christmas time. The chocolate always hardens before I get through using it. That means I have to keep microwaving it or reheating it. Reheating makes the whole process take longer and most of the time I end up burning the chocolate before I’m done with it. Burnt chocolate is sooooo gross.
