mimi, your instructions were great and the cheese melted really well. the recipe really deserves a 5 , but to be honest my family didn't care for the aroma of the cheese and they couldn't get beyond that. i thought it was very good myself.

Mimi, I agree with Chia's review. We were dining at a great BBQ in Les Gets, France. It smelled wonderful. We inquired about raclette, and the host agreed to bring out the raclette oven. Even outdoors, the guests at the BBQ were asking what smelled so bad as we fired up our oven. One really must caution guests that the fragrance does not match the heavenly taste.
