The aroma, properties and nutritional values
Raclette has gained steady popularity since its discovery. What at first was only a few herdsmen in the Alps who melted cheese over an open fire, has now become a national dish that wins over more and more fans across the countries. "Raclette" as a culinary idea is a true Swiss export success.
By experience, you should expect 4 raclettes per person. Of course, the gourmands ask for more... If you scrape off the raclette from the cheese, which is particularly fine, we calculate 60 grams per raclette.

History and origin of Raclette appliances
The first patents were filed in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The invention of raclette ovens goes hand in hand with the increasing popularity and spread of this culinary specialty. The inventors were from central Valais in Switzerland, the region that is also considered the home of raclette.
