What a great idea! I live in a drom so it would be easy for me to use. Keep the great ideas coming. ... You should also think of stuff for dorm use. Since the rooms are really small and two people live in there, it would be great to have fun ideas to my the room personal.

What gauge wire do you suggest? One could also use a tuna tin but it might take longer to heat up..

This is ingenious! I have a set but this would make a fun gift. Also, to make several and have different dips in each for a fondue buffet!
