Raclette grills come in all shapes and sizes. These are our picks for achieving the perfect melt, whether you’re scraping an entire wheel or just looking for an oozing wedge to spruce up some steamed potatoes.
Professionals only. Requires an entire half-wheel, and a seriously committed racleur to man the cheese all night. Browned, crispy bubbles guaranteed.
Suitable for a quarter-wheel, this grill melts one side with a heat lamp. Just swing it around to the other side when the surface gets runny.
Electric Raclette Maker
Instant dinner party. Everyone melts their own wedges, while veggies and meats cook on top.
Swissmar Nordic Foldable Candlelight Raclette
Fueled by tea lights, this ultra-portable setup is best for an intimate dinner or solo scarfing.
Old-school method. Set a half-wheel up on a hot rock, and then scrape away.
