Velata Review and Giveaway!

I am a true fondue lover!  Every Valentine’s day, my hubby’s family gets together and does a huge fondue party. They are the best and have pretty much any kind of fondue out there… oil for steaks and chicken, cheese, and my favorite… CHOCOLATE! Oh goodness, I could dip pretty much anything in chocolate and it would make it that much more delicious!

I attended a blog conference in April where I was first introduced to Velata. Velata is seriously pure genius and makes fondue SO SIMPLE!  No more candles or special things to heat your fondue… Nope!  Velata uses a LIGHTBULB- making it safer, easier and just downright simple.  Simply plug it in, turn the switch to the warming setting you want, and WAHLA! Ready to go!

Velata has a variety of flavors of chocolate for dipping (Caramel Milk being my personal fav :) ) all delicious, pure and smooth chocolate- just the way you want it to be!

One of the best things about Velata, is that the top piece that holds the chocolate is dishwasher safe!  Thats right… just pop off the rubber top, rinse it out and put it in the dishwasher! AMAZING right?!

I was given a Velata warmer and some chocolates to try out and review.  I brought them for the dessert at our Father’s Day party and they were probably the highlight of the menu!  My whole family had fun dipping away and talking.  Fondue is such a great idea for a crowd because it helps get people talking and good conversation started as everyone is gathered round.


Here are some things we dipped in our Velata

 I absolutely LOVE my Velata Warmer and chocolates! It is truly a wonderful product and I know it would be a hit at your next party, too!


Well Guess what?!

Velata has so kindly offered one lucky reader

    I have never tried fondue, but it sounds like loads of fun! I think my favorite thing to dip might be pretzels… sweet and salty together!

  15. Michelle Persek

    I love this, and could really use it for my upcoming baby shower! All I can say is that my baby girl is already craving large amounts of chocolate! My favorite is dipping marshmallows in chocolate and then coating them with something salty and crunchy.

  16. Corrie

    Love dipping FRUIT…pineapple, strawberries, bananas. Maybe ’cause you feel better about yourself when you’re eating your chocolate with fruit?! :o)

    i love love love chocolate. The best thing to dip into it is fruit, especially strawberries and raspberries. I would love to have this Velata warmer for a cozy and fun party.

  21. Alyssa Georgie

    I have to agree with many of the other comments that the best thing to dip in chocolate is fruit, preferred fruit is cuties.

  22. Rachel

    I love fondue! I love to dip pretzels that have peanut butter on them. I also love to dip marshmallows and bananas and apples, potato chips…..there are so many options!!

  23. Debbie

    Fondue is so awesome and so fun! I love strawberries in chocolate but just about anything dipped in Chocolate is so so good! I’ve never heard of Velata warmers but after reading about them on your blog – I gotta have one!!

  24. Have you ever tried creampuffs? They are espically delicous when they just defrost and are still really cold in the middle mixed with the warm chocolate is absolutely amazing. YOU MUST TRY IT!!

  25. Yum! Only had fondue once if I remember correctly, but soooo yummy! I would love one of these! Lord knows I have enough kitchen gadgets already, but that’s what makes life and cooking so fun!

  26. Christine Wallis

    Most of my students are not familiar with the many fruits that we take for granted. I have melted chocolate (white and chocolate) in a microwave for special events, birthdays and school parties. They absolutely love to dip bread, fruit, cake and cookies in chocolate. They love my fondue maker and will eat almost any vegetables that can be dipped in cheese. I would love to add this to my classroom for special occasions!! My students would thank you also!

    This is so adorable…… reminds me of the scentsy warmers but for chocolate………how does it get better than that????
