How do I book a raclette machine or fondue pot rental?
Rentals are only available for pick up at our East Vancouver store. You can call them directly at 604-253-4218 if you would like to reserve in advance.
All that is required is that you purchase your cheese from us for your event, and a valid credit card number for deposit.
We do recommend that you book your rental in advance. There are a limited number of machines to loan out.
If you need a 1/4 wheel machine for rental, there is only one available.
When do I have to return my rental?
All rentals must be returned the next business day by 4pm, so that we have the proper amount of time to sanitize them for the next renter.
Rentals must be returned to the East Vancouver location.
Rentals must be returned in the tub/tote in clean and working condition. Any rentals returned uncleaned will be charged a $25 cleaning fee.
If any rental equipment is not returned to les amis du FROMAGE in acceptable condition within two days after your event, the replacement cost will be charged to your credit card without notice.
Tips for Using Raclette Rentals
Never overfill raclette trays. If you pile ingredients too high, they won’t cook evenly during the brief cooking time and the cheese will brown too quickly because it’s too close to the heating element. Instead cook more small servings
The trays have a non-stick coating. Please use the provided plastic Raclette scrapers to remove cheese once melted. Avoid metal utensils to scrape these trays. Clean the trays by soaking them in warm water for a few minutes first, then clean them with a soft cloth. Avoid abrasive scrubbers.
