Fondue help needed

rockin-good | Jan 24, 200212:02 PM     3

I got a couple of fondue pots for christmas and want to throw a fondue party. Unfortunately there were no instructions in either of the boxes. There's the thing you light that has stuff inside of it (I don't know if this stuff ever needs to be replaced or not... I hope not because I can't figure out how to open them). I know I have to get some sort of fluid to put in them, don't know what or where to get it and don't know how much to put in.
These are of course the ultra-basics. Once I figure out how to use the things I think I'll be okay. I have a fondue cookbook that has lots of very fancy recipies but I really want to go with the basics. One cheese, one oil and one chocolate. Any suggestions? Tips?
I've been dying to do this for years!
