SWISSMAR Classic 8 Person Raclette
The origin of Raclette dates back hundreds of years, to when shepherds (Swiss cowboys) would move their herds high into the mountains for grazing in the warm summer months. Supplies would be limited to what could be carried and consisted of basics, such as potatoes, flour, perhaps some pickled gherkins, a round of cheese produced from the milk of their beloved cows, and of course a good swiss wine. Long, lonely evenings were passed in front of a campfire, and a simple and primitive tradition was born: A wheel of cheese was cut in half and placed on a rock near the fire's edge. The cheese slowly bubbled and just before dripping into the fire, the wheel was lifted from its perch and scraped onto a waiting plate of potatoes and pickles - the word "Raclette" comes from the French word "racler" meaning to "scrape off".
