I Melt With You

For those with a soft spot for fromage, it's okay to get a little cheesy now and then. With this portable melter, you can transform your favorite cheese into melty magnificence in just four minutes with the heat of three tea lights. Use the included mini-spatula to scoop the melted cheese onto crostini or crackers. The tray and heating base fold up for compact storage and picnic portability, and the base is perforated with a pattern of Swiss cheese holes for a touch of whimsy. The solid sapele wood and metal construction make this tempting tool a lasting addition to your cheese accoutrements. sapele wood sourced from Germany; assembled in Taiwan.

Wood type may vary.

Bleeker created a collection of rural-inspired products that evoke feelings of warmth, gathering around a table and times shared with friends.

"Gezellig" is a Dutch word that translates to mean "having a warm or friendly atmosphere", "cozy and comfortable". Bleeker kept this in mind when developing the Life Collection by using materials with a natural look, including pastels with a soft grey tone, earthenware, concrete, and European White Oak.

              Fun to use and efficiently melts cheese. Because of the tea lights, I can let my grandchildren use it without fear of burning themselves and they love melting cheese so quickly.

                We used a similar product in a restaurant in Paris and have looked for one for almost a year. This product is wonderful for melting cheese on potatoes and meats. If advertised as a raclette utensil I think people would better recognize it. Very pleased overall, however I wish it were a little larger.
