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!

    The Soup Kettle Warmer by Avantco was perfectly priced and keeps our soup items at the right temperature, we will be ordering more products from Avantco in the near future. The quality is great

    from HJS SERVICES Posted on

    We use our Avantco 11qt Soup Kettle quit a bit. Mostly it is for cheese sauces and an occasional pot of soup.. We are looking forward to using it in an upcoming Chili cook-off. It heats evenly and is easy to clean.

    from Bad Axe BBQ LLC Posted on

    Great soup pot/warmer & a great price. We've had this model for quite a while now, using daily & it's been durable & reliable. No problems at all, great compact size.

    from Bada Bean Posted on

    It holds temps very well. Well constructed warmer. It is very easy to clean as well. I use it everyday for 6 months now and I do not have any problems with it. Very happy with this purchase.

    from Stix Restaurant Posted on

    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 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.
