[Costco] Swissmar 8-Person Raclette - $69.99

I don't know if this is a hot deal, but similar ones online at The Bay and whatnot are roughly $120. Anyway, Costco online has $20 off to their retail price that brings it to $69.99. I don't have it and don't need it but I'm on the fence about buying it personally.

RFD TIP #115: If you gotta Google something to know what it is or does, you don't need it!

Ps: I'm kinda interested in this

Edit: Upon further review I'm sold on it. In for 1. Thx OP

I have had a similar one for years, I don't use it a lot but its great when I do. Its a great idea for people who entertain a lot, it gets people involved in the cooking and is a novelty for sure. Raclette cheese is usually pretty expensive though, I cleared out a Sobeys of like 20 packs once when they were clearing them out for next to nothing, so there were a lot of raclette meals those days. I am sure that other cheeses can be used to. I brought the one I had up to the cottage since I'm more likely to entertain there, and bought another one a couple months ago on clearance from Walmart for the city house, a smaller 6 person one as its usually just me and the wife when I use it at home. It is still there at Walmart if anyone is looking for a smaller one or don't want to dish out $70 to try it out and see if they like the concept.

Just place half a wheel of your favorite hard cheese next to a fireplace (it's winter in Canada, eh) and you saved $70, room in a cupboard and a little bit of the planet

Just know that your whole house will smell like dirty socks when you use it! I worked for years at Chateau Lake Louise and any time the Wine Bar sold an order of Raclette, people would complain to me in the Fairview Dining room, next door, that their server's feet stink!

Thanks OP, I'm a big fan of Raclettes. It's interesting how many people never heard about it.
Great to receive people and enjoy a "slow cook" while drinking a wine.
Great price and great product.

Fair suggestion - I called the Markham location and asked and she checked and they aren't stocked for any in the nearby warehouses in the Markham/Scarb/Richmond Hill area.

We love our raclette although use it so rarely. We use provolone or swiss cheese. I've never looked for raclette cheese specifically.
Good find. I have never seen them in a warehouse.

I don't know about East, but we have the cheese in the warehouse in the West sometimes.

I saw it last week, I think it is a seasonal item.
