The size of the pot is more suitable for families rather than couples. It would look almost empty for two. I like the feel of the heavy cast iron and the cheese melted beautifully. However, I would not use it for meat fondues that require oil to be kept hot on the table. The flame burner is similar to any fondue set I have seen in the market but it really makes a difference if the proper gel is used so you just remove the cover and it fits perfectly in the burner (hassle-free). Overall I am happy with the set so far.
