Heat oil in the Cuisinart® Fondue Pot on setting 4-½. Add the sliced garlic, and cook until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add mussels, saffron, and wine to pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mussels are opened, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove mussels from pan. Add salt, tomato purée, basil, and water to pan. Raise the temperature to Setting 6 and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature to Setting 3-½, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove mussels from their shells; discard mussel shells. Remove basil from sauce. If sauce is too thick, thin with a little water. To serve Seafood Bouillabaisse Fondue, skewer shrimp, scallop, or mussels onto fondue forks and dip into Bouillabaisse Sauce. Cook shrimp and scallops until they are firm, but not tough. Cook mussels just to heat through; they are already cooked and will toughen with too much heat. Skewer and dip cubes of crusty baguette in sauce.
