Here’s a twist on the crockpot and fondue pot. Hamilton Beach’s Party Crock Cookset. This little pot would be great for entertaining. The 1.5 quart pot holds dips or side dishes on your buffet and can go from the refrigerator to the heating base to the table so you can prepare in advance and have fewer dishes to clean. The warming stand uses a tea candle so you don’t have to worry about guests tripping over the cord. It is available in red, blue, red heart shape, and orange pumpkin shape. It retails for $30-$35.
