Raclettes: I've had a few....

We're up at the Ballater flat this week, and tonight Hilary decided we should use up some Raclette cheese we'd had in the freezer for a while, so I was sent to fetch the Raclette set from the hall cupboard. There it was, on the top shelf, a large yellow box labelled "Elektrischer Design Raclette grill". To get it out, I had to move a few things including a smallish black box. Wondering what this was, I read its label and found that it was a "Maybaum Raclette R2", which on closer investigation turned out to be a two-person electric raclette grill. I asked Hilary which one she intended me to get out, and she had no recollection of having bought the smaller one (paperwork in the box suggests that it came from Amazon or eBay or similar). Back in Edinburgh we have a six-person electric and a two-person meths-burning one (the latter acquired about two years ago in Geneva Airport). But neither of us could recall buying a second two-person one.

We agreed that you know you're middle-class when you can't remember how many raclette grills you own.

Of course, none of these tame and domestic machines are anywhere near as impressive as the big electric grills containing half a cheese which you encounter in restaurants in Alpine resorts.

Don't do that in the US - the device melts the cheese?

Joe - yes. You use special Raclette cheese which is really good melted, and the machine melts the cheese. Then you scrape it off with a wooden spatula onto your potato / mushroom / whatever big flat thing you like to eat with melted cheese, along with gherkins, salad, coleslaw, etc etc (and maybe some salami or that kind of meat). Like a fondue, it's a fun cooking-at-the-table experience (our kids always loved it, thought not quite as much as fondues where you have the fun of stuff falling off your fork and having to be fished out).

Looks as though you can get it in Vegas but the reviewer here reckons it's not brilliant.
