Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
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.
