Hot pot, is also called fire pot, fondue, steamboat, or lẩu in Vietnamese, referring to several east Asian varieties of stew. It consists a metal pot of stock simmering in a savory broth, ladden with spices at the center of the dining table. Hot pot dishes include leafy vegetables, mushrooms, seafood, thinly sliced meat and meatballs. While the hot pot is simmering, diners are huddling together around the table, picking the ingredients they want to eat, dropping them in the pot to be cooked, and grabbing them out of the hot pot while enjoying the conversation.

While a fondue pot most likely would work for most ingredients, it’s ideal to use an electric hot plate or a portable gas burner to be able to boil the broth in the middle of the table; able to cook ingredients such as meatballs, sliced meat and seafood that requires the broth to be boiling. If you don’t own one, here’re some of my recommendations:
