How to Use an Avantco S30 Soup Warmer

Keep these safety tips in mind when using your Avantco kettle style 11 qt. soup warmers. First, always use the warmer on a solid, level surface. Only use the warmer with wet heat. Add 20 oz. of water to the kettle before placing the bain marie inset into the warmer. Be sure to not overfill it. The bain marie should not float, even when empty. To begin operating your kettle, turn the warmer on. The indicator light will glow to show that the unit is on. Adjust the temperature control to settings 8 to 12 for initial warm up. Once the kettle reaches your desired temperature, adjust the temperature control dial to lower settings 1 to 8 for holding and place your bain marie inset inside the kettle. Attach the lid and you are ready to serve! Please note that this kettle warmer is not designed to cook soups or sauces, and it is not to be used to re-thermalize cold or frozen products. Don't attempt to move or carry the kettle when it is on, or full of hot liquid. When cleaning your kettle, always unplug the kettle first. Never immerse the appliance in water. Lift and remove the stainless steel liner. The bain marie inset and lid are dishwasher safe. To clean the kettle body, use hot soapy water and a rag. Do not use harsh or abrasive chemicals or scouring agents to clean your kettles exterior. Thanks for watching, and if you have any questions, please use our live chat button!

Overall User Rating: Avantco S30 11 Qt. Soup Kettle Warmer - 120V, 400W ( 4.6 stars from 82 reviews )

    Thus kettle seems to work well except for that it heats our soups up so hot that it breaks them down after a couple hours, even though we set it at the lowest setting. Be advised it gets very hot on the inside.

    from Texas Tea-Licious Posted on

    Great product! Holds A LOT of soup and stays super hot for hours! We use it mid-Sept thru May for our daily soup. Plus my health inspector is thrilled it's commercial grade!

    from Gratitude C&B in Lincoln, NE Posted on

    Great tool. Heats up fast. Holds at perfect temp. Easy to take apart and clean. Lid Is a little bit of a pain to put on but it's a great steal for the price

    from BLUE FRONT Posted on

    We use this soup kettle to keep our chili warm and ready to serve. It heats fast and keeps the temperature at the desired level. Great product

    from Clay Panthers Posted on

    Well....They did great for a little over 1 year. We purchased 3 of them at the same time and ALL 3 of the thermostats burned out around the same time (within a month). So I called to find out if I can get a replacement part (thermostat) and they said there is none available, sorry out of warranty! Sooooooo....I guess you get what you pay for.....Lesson learned.

    from Aebleskivers / Philly Express Posted on

    Thank you for your review, Ron. We are sorry these did not work for you. Try this APW Wyott RCW-11 11 Qt. Countertop Cooker as a great warmer option for your establishment.

    WEBstaurantStore.com Customer Solutions

    We use this soup pot everyday. Works wonderful. Just the right size for our deli. Heat is adjustable to keep soup at the right temp. for sale to customer. Easy clean up too.


    A much better valued item that is constructed very well, holds perfect temps day in a day out. Looks great, essential for any cafe or catering event.

    from the black fig Posted on

    This couple kettle warmer heats quickly and maintains the temperature of our soups perfectly. The only downside is that the build seems as though it could be a little more sturdy but for the cost, its a great option.

    from Brewed Expressions Posted on

    We love these warmers because we can take them on the road with us and the gravies stay warm all day! No need to take up limited space in the steam table.

    from Southern Charm Kitchen Posted on

    This product worked fine, but the black painted collar rusted and chipped. I am unable to find a replacement for the collar on this site.

    from The Living Room Posted on

    Great Soup Kettle Warmer. Great Price and Quality. It looks like the more expensive models and works just as well. I will order again when I need more Soup Warmers.

    Posted on

    We had been searching a soup kettle for a while when we seen this one. The price was awesome and so is the kettle warmer. We have been using it for several months and love it.

    Posted on

    It is work very good ,we use it every day for our soup of the day ,it keep our soup warm all the time,i am glad i got it

    from Thaiparadise llc Posted on

    For the price, this is a great soup kettle. We have used it daily for several months now and no issues. It comes with some labels for different soups but we make our own signs instead. The only negative I have is the lid is a little difficult to hold in place when you are trying to drop a full pot of soup into the warming kettle, but once you get used to it, no problem.


    This soup kettle warmer is a great value. Don't be fooled by the low price. This product is well-built and does the job well. If you're looking for a no-frills soup kettle, this is a good choice.

    The Avantco S30 11 Qt. Soup Kettle Warmer keeps all of our freshly made Clam Chowders and Lobster Bisques piping hot and ready to serve.

    from Golden Lion Cafe Posted on

    We had two of these soup warmers... only took about a month for the top black painted rim to start rusting and the paint start to chip and peel off. Was not a good situation at all as both of them did the exact same thing. We bought a regular full-pan size steam table to replace these.

    Posted on

    Thank you for reviewing this item! We are sorry to hear that the warmer you bought is rusting. A Customer Solutions Representative will be in touch with you soon to sort out the situation.

    I love this product, I am not sure how long it will last (seeing as it is really affordable), but it is sleek in appearance. So far, so good.

    from Honey B Posted on

    We needed a soup warmer for our Sunday buffet to handle gravies as well as one that could double as an au jus warmer. This unit gives you the option to set the temperature to accommodate a number of different sauces or gravies without having to purchase several different types. It holds up under constant use. Excellent value for the money.

    from Sunshine Grille, Fort Myers, FL Posted on

    we got two of these for our cafe!and we absolutely love them ,you just need to keep the temperature at 7-9 and your soup will be hot all day!

    from Something's Brewing Cafe INC Posted on

    We love the new Avantco Soup Kettle it keeps the soup warm through the whole service time. Our residents are happy to have hot soup!!

    from Barton Creek Assisted Living Posted on

    This Soup Kettle, I love. First, it was an item approved (NSF) for my coffee house. It was suggested by the City so I looked and found this one at Webstaurant. They accepted it. I need another one and plan to purchase soon.

    from Topplez Corporation Posted on

    We ordered 3 of these soup warmers and all three had to be replaced within a year. They rusted and fell apart and also leaked.

    from Rt. 26 Bar & Grill Posted on

    Thank you for your review! This Avantco Warmer is an excellent value. These warmers are great starter kettles recommended for light volume use. If you are looking for a more heavy-duty alternative, try the APW Wyott WK-1V PKG 11 Qt. soup kettle countertop warmer instead!

    WEBstaurantStore.com Customer Solutions

    Extremely easy to use and stylish. This was very good to use for our event. Actually thinking of purchasing a second one for use. Would recommend this warmer for any and everyone looking to keep something warm without standing over watching it.

    from Angelz Therapeutic Massage, LLC Posted on

    This soup warmer is called our witches pot around our Resturant, keeps the soup warm and tasting fresh. It is appealing to the eye and increases our soup sales.

    from Colon Restaurant Supplies Posted on

    This is a very nice warmer. Light weight and easy to clean. Has a quick heat setting and the thermostat is working very well. Keeps the soup at a legal temperature.

    from Branding Iron Roadhouse Posted on

    This is a wonderful soup warmer. It heats up quickly and maintains a constant temperature. We use it for soups and chili. It will heat up a frozen product within 2 hours.

    Fabulous for spaghetti sauce!! Keeps great temperature with no worries. Just starts selling meatballs and spaghetti and didn't want it on the stove because of scorching. Glad I bought this .

    from Black Box Pizza Company Posted on

    We have ordered two and they are perfect for our coffee shop. Alot bigger than what we expected. Easy to use and easy cleanup. Happy!

    from Heaven in A Cup Posted on

    I haven't had the same positive experiences that other reviewers have had. We are using these commercially everyday. We bought two of these in 2011. They seemed to work well for the first year, but now both lid clasps have broken so lids don't stay on. Both kettles seem to have thermostat that don't work. They get super hot no matter what the dial setting and evaporate the soup and making it unservable. We make our soups from scratch, so we've lost a lot of money over the last year from these ruining soups. I was hoping for better quality but I guess you get what you pay for.

    from The Downtown Farm Stand LLC Posted on

    Thank you for your review! This soup warmer kettle is a great value. These warmers are great starter kettles recommended for light volume use. If you are looking for a more heavy-duty alternative, try the APW Wyott WK-1V PKG 11 Qt. soup kettle countertop warmer instead!

    Works well in terms of even, consistent heat, but the cover pops off everytime you open it. So can't give it 5 stars. Still very good value for the buck.

    from Victoria Pie Co. Posted on

    Bought this warmer for my Coffee Place and Im very happy with the quality and looks of this product. Has a nice finishing and works very well too. Great buy for the price!!

    from Lia cafe Brazil LLC Posted on

    We looked for many soup warmers, and this one was half the price of most of the others. It works great, looks great, and couldn't be happier

    from Magnolia Greens Golf Plantation Posted on

    For the price of this 11 QT soup warmer, I was a little concerned about what the quality would be, but I was blown away. It is very nicely built and a great bargain!

    from Sally Posted on

    Huge! We use it to melt chocolate for cake pops! We love it! Highly recommended. Webrestaurant always ships fast too. Would buy this item again.

    from Incr-Edible Cupcakes Posted on

    The kettle was a hit during my son's birthday. Since it was still really cold in February, I made Beef soup for our friends, and it stayed warm all evening, and all that was left were the bones! Also love the design, and ease in filling it up and heating also has temperature pre-sets!

    from Winky's Kusina sa Eskina Posted on

    This is a good countertop soup warmer. It is very well insulated and easy to use. Great item for chili or stewed vegetables. Perfect capacity for a break or employee room.

    from Deenas Sweet Treats Posted on

    Ordered 5 of these cheaper than anywhere else....Each one has been tested and works GREAT! The only flaw is at the base the paint is chiping away, but nothing I can't fix at savings for the 5.

    from Catering By Tina Posted on

    I use this soup kettle to keep my soups and gumbos at a steady temperature throughout the day at the farmer's market. Works excellent and draws attention from the customers. I love it..purchased a 2nd one.

    from GDB Enterprises, LLC Posted on

    This is a great soup kettle. It's very easy to clean the entire unit. The s/s center comes out of the kettle piece so loading it and unloading it are very easy to accomplish. I would recommend this product. They need to associate a ladle with it to make it perfect. You need to purchase an extra long handle a ladle to have it reach the bottom.

    from Moose Island Bakery Posted on

    This ws the least expensive warmer I could find and actually turned out to be one of the best soup warmers we have. Themostat is accurate and holds heat well. Easy to clean and comes with stainless bowl and hinged lid.

    from AURELIOS PIZZA Posted on

    This soup kettle works great. It is large enough to hold plenty of soup. We have had no problem with the soup becoming too cool!

    from Ciro's Bistro Posted on

    I order two of these for my convenient store and use one for soup and one for chili. They are Wonderful and well worth the money!!

    from H&H Fuel,Incx Posted on

    What a great soup warmer! Black finish is very attractive! Great for keeping homemade chili warm for hours! Good for large batches of nacho cheese!!!

    Posted on

    I bought 2 of these Soup Kettles for a 4 day event 2 weeks in a row. I absolutely LOVE them! The settings are #1-6 for warm/hold and #7-12 for high heat. I would fill the pot to the max with ice cold chili, set it to #12, within 45-60 min chili was ready to serve. Lower it to #1 or 2 would hold temp the rest of the day. 1 of them didn't work after the 1st day, however I called Webstaurant & they overnighted (at no charge) another one that I needed for the following day. Now that's SERVICE! You guys are AWESOME!!!

    from Doughlicious Cakes Posted on

    We liked the first one we ordered so much, we now have 2! Easy to use, keeps food at correct temperature without overcooking during service. Excellent product.

    from MacDaddy's Rollin' Smoke BBQ Posted on

    Easy to set up and operate. This kettle holds two to three batches of soup at once. The lift out container makes it easy to clean.

    This soup/sauce warming kettle does a great job. Keeps the soups/sauces at ideal temp and is ready to serve when you need it, or continue to warm at correct temp.

    from Gulbronsen Family LP Posted on

    We've been using our soup kettle for about a year now and it is still doing the job. It never gets too hot, is always reliable, and must cheaper than the competitors.

    What a work-horse this soup kettle is turning out to be! I feel very fortunate that I've found this Company's on-line web site store. This Kettle operates just the way it's supposed to work! Don't be fooled into buying a more expensive version when this works extremely fine. Great value, made exceptionally well and I'm sure that it'll last a very long time. Delivered real fast also w/out my even requesting it.

    from Amarillo Grilling Posted on

    The soup warmer is a great addition to any restaurant or to use for catering. The warmer heats up very quickly and is easy to maintain proper temperture with the thermostat.

    Posted on

    The worst thing in the world is to spend hours preparing soups and stews and have them stick to pot on the stove. It's going to happen no matter what. UNLESS YOU BUY THIS WARMER! I can put this soup warmer on my front counter in plain view of my customers because of it's attractive appearance and I never have to worry again about my soups, chili, or stews sticking. awesome product, heats up quickly and maintains food safe temperature at all times!

    from Good Home Cookin' Posted on

    quality item at a very reasonable price range. It is really quite simple to clean. It is large enough to hold enough soup for large crowds. A+++++

    from Pastime Bar Posted on

    We keep this in the kitchen with soup everyday. Have had no problem - soup stays hot. All breaks down easily for cleaning at night and outside of kettle wipes easily

    from PS Shooters, LLC Posted on

    This is a nice little soup warmer. It's completely insulated and when on high, it's barely warm to touch on the outside. I don't trust the lid attachment so I don't use it. I don't believe this warmer gets as hot as the manufacturer states but it does what I need it to so I'm fine with it. For the money, I think it does a good job.

    from Seattle Hill Soap Co Posted on

    Excellent value for the price. Serves as excellent hot holding equipment for soups. Product is easy setup, serve from, and clean up. Product comes with several soups labels for your soup of the day options.

    from Taste Great Concessions LLC Posted on

    we bought three of these soup warmers. They preform perfectly, keep the soups hot yet they don't over cook the soups. The price is unbelievable and delivery was quick

    This works wonders, doesn't burn,but you can heat it up to high if you want. A steal at this price! Loved the labels that came with it also.

    from Anteater Design Group Posted on

    This soup warmer is great! It keeps things warm throughout the day and doesn't burn the bottom of the soup. We also like the way it looks, fitting nicely with the decoration of our store.

    This soup warmer is huge!! It reminds me of an old iron kettle but it is plastic and lightweight. Some parts are metal as well. Nice product.
