    Personally, I wouldn’t want it. I have enough junk in my kitchen without adding something I didn’t ask for it. 

    But I’m a stickler for staying on list when it comes to gifts.

    I probably would try to use it once since it was a gift, but it wouldn’t be the most useful thing in my kitchen, and I hate clutter. Maybe return it yourself & use the store credit to buy something you know this particular couple might use.

    did you get a gift reciept?  i would, and include that with the gift, so if they end up not liking it they can also return it for something else.

    If they didn’t register for a fondue pot, it’s rude to give it just because you have it laying around your house.  You should return it to Macy’s, get a store credit and buy someting off registry for them.

    Neither, return the set with the gift receipt you have, get store credit back and then buy something off their registry.

    Um, you do know that you can put chocolate in that pot, too, right? And dip strawberries and cake? 

    Keep it!

    A fondue pot is not going to get used often in most households. I would not give that as a gift unless I knew for sure that the recipient really liked fondue, really liked prepping it, and didn’t already have one.

    I bought one a few years ago with every intention of using it. Two years later it was still in the box and I couldn’t find a single one of my foodie friends who wanted it. And it took me like a week to freecycle it.

    I think it would be a cute gift, especially paired with some melting chocolate (godiva sells it). I have a fondue set, and Fiance and I pulled it out on valentine’s day…very romantic.
