Raclette is a delectable Swiss cheese dish that has been popular for centuries. Its origin dates back hundreds of years when shepherds tended their herds in the mountains of Switzerland. Supplies were limited and meals consisted of cheese melted by the fire then drizzled onto potatoes and pickles. From these humble origins the tradition of raclette was born, and can now be enjoyed at home with our tabletop raclette grills.
