caquelon definition and meaning

What is a "caquelon"?

A caquelon is a traditional Swiss cooking vessel used specifically for making fondue, a popular melted cheese dish. It is typically made of ceramic, stoneware, or enameled cast iron and has a wide, shallow shape with low sides. Caquelons are designed to distribute heat evenly and maintain a consistent temperature, which is essential for properly melting and keeping the cheese or chocolate fondue warm throughout the meal. Some caquelons may have a long handle for easy carrying, while others may come with a separate stand or burner to keep the fondue warm at the table.
