Where to Buy A Feuerzangenbowle Set
A Feuerzangenbowle set generally has a container to hold the Gluhwein, and a rack to hold the burning sugar cone. If you already have a fireproof punch bowl, all you really need is the sugar cone rack. Although, it is nice to have a set that has a candle or warming element underneath to keep the wine warm.
You will need a Zucker Hut
