An electric hotpot cooker will keep the hotpot consistently warm and simmer to the set temperature throughout the entire meal or it can be automatically controlled.

Choice of broth
The choice of broth, or soup base will depend on our specific diet. Some people prefer the soup base to be lighter in an effort to preserve the original taste of the food to be cooked in the hotpot. Some may like their soap base strong and spicy to complement the food to be eaten. Look at the Sichuan Hot Pot to see what I mean.
Without the broth or soup, there is no hot pot. It is the most fundamental item in a hot pot meal, besides the food ingredients, of course.
The broth is where you dip in and cook your ingredients. With perfect timing, your food is cooked and has absorbed all the goodness of the broth.
Choosing the right broth cannot be too complicated. You can choose from the simplest version to the complicated one however, only an experienced hot potter knows what are the long list of ingredients and preparation to go into making the broth. For beginners, you may choose a lighter version with just water and a few aromatics. Or to make your choice of broth much easier, just choose between spicy and non-spicy.

Why choose an electric hotpot cooker?
You don’t need a chef to preside over a hot pot meal. An electric hotpot cooker is all you need. It is small enough to be placed in the middle of your dining table. Traditionally people use a charcoal burner and pot but health-conscious diners know that it can induce carbon monoxide that can poison you slowly and without you knowing it.
Traditional Charcoal Burner
Your hotpot is shallow enough so that your meal is not drowning in the broth. You will be delighted to watch it floating while it cooks.
If you have guests with different diets and tastes, split pots are ideal for different soups or broths and keeping meats and veggies separate to keep everyone happy.
While you’re still scoping up the meatballs and vegetables you would like to innovate a bit to make your meal much more interesting like adding a barbeque. A hotpot cum barbeque cooker will add extraordinary companionship with each cooking of contrasting flavour and texture and it saves money too. You don’t have to buy each separate cooker and barbeque grill.
What type of cooking do you see two or more people crowd around a central cooker and partake in the food in a pot and at the same time interact to talk, eat, drink, and have a great time? Japanese teppanyaki couldn’t come close to it!
