special tool for meatball fondue

This recipe should make about 25 to 30 meatballs. Make sure to use the special brass wire skimmers for meatball fondue. These items (as shown on the right) can be found in most Asian grocery stores.

You can also use smaller version of this Joyce Chen Stainless Steel Strainer 5 Inch or a heat resistant (metal) Stainless Steel Slotted Spoon.

Make sure that the tool you use will easily fit into your fondue pot and won't become a safety hazard for your guests!

Don't forget to prepare at least three dips to accompany your fondue meatballs.
