How can you keep dips hot at a party?
|When bringing a hot dip to a party, it’s always a challenge to keep it warm without burning it. Slow-cookers, fondue pots, and chafing dishes are all great options for keeping dips warm without overheating them, and all three also keep your stovetop from becoming overcrowded.|
