    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

    sometimes we forget to heat up our soup before service. this warmer on 12 brings the soup to temperature quickly. Very reliable and easy to remove soup. Don't forget to add water at the bottom!

    I love the way this soup kettle looks in the waitress area, since the customers can see it. Besides looks it does its job by keeping our soups nice and hot. Hope it last long, but at least it is a great price as well.

    from Ellen Renees LLC Posted on

    Soup kettle warmer is a wonderful product. Great item to be used at wedding receptions. Holds plenty of gumbo, allowing it to stay warm and fresh. Will purchase again.

    from Centralsupply Posted on

    Very attractive looking soup kettles! These warm soups evenly and thoroughly. Easy to clean up, they even come with little soup labels. Nice addition to our cafe- we have two!

    from Ivory Road LLC Posted on

    These are fantastic! The look great, are easy to clean. We use them for pulled pork for sliders. Can't beat the price for the quality.

    This is such a great, reasonable priced, soup warmer. We use it each day to warm our soups in the kitchen for our lunch menu.

    We used the soup kettle warmer for our hot oatmeal. The kettle worked fantastic, it kept the oatmeal warm and was very durable and easy for our guests to use.

    from Ayres Hotel Posted on

    This same warmer was at a local restaurant supply store for more than double the cost. This warmer is perfect size and I've used it to keep mashed potatoes hot also.

    from Mantua Corners Bar & Grille Posted on

    This soup kettle really fits the bill. it does a great job keeping soup warm which keeps us, our clients, and the health inspector happy!

    from Cobscook Community Learning Center Posted on

    Best bang for the buck out there. Keeps my soups hot and ready to serve but doesn't take up too much space or money. Only thing keeping it from 5 stars is I wish the temperature dial had degree marks on it instead of a 1-12 system.

    from CrepeWorX LLC Posted on

    Great value and superb product. Bought mine almost two years ago and still functions like new. Great for keeping soups hot, or nacho cheese, etc.

    from Das Biergarten Posted on

    from flavors of india Posted on

    This is a great size. It would be extremely useful if there were a lid/cover available for it that could be used to transport liquids in the kettle.

    from Bill's Catering & BBQ/Bill's on the Hill Posted on

    Soup season was here and our little steam table that could wasn't cutting it. Happy with the price of this. It has an old time soup pot look that fit our theme, also good as a catering investment . Idiot proof for your customer, one plug and one knob

    This soup kettle is great. The price was very attractive and it's able to warm boiled peanuts very quickly and keep a consistent temperature all day.

    from Homegrown Brewhouse Posted on

    Kettle warmer is working out great for me so far. Hope it lasts a long time. It is doing great in keeping soups warm. Easy to wash too.

    I had exactly the same experience as two other reviewers. I purchased two of these kettles (which WERE quite a bit more expensive when I bought them, by the way..). They worked fine for one year. A few days after the one year mark and when the warranty had expired, BOTH kettles started to heat at very high temps, even when set below the lowest setting. I see this seems to be a common problem with these kettles, unfortunately. So both kettles are unusable and were so from just days after the warranty expired.

    from 7th Heaven Gourmet Posted on

    Thank you for the review, Marva. We are sorry this did not last for you. It is an excellent value that serves as an alternative to people wanting to avoid the high price of other models. A Customer Solutions Representative will be in touch with you about this.

    This soup kettle warmer is attractive enough and the price is certainly a selling point, but the company DOES NOT back up their products. We have a soup kettle that was purchased the end of September 2015, and is SUPPOSED to still be under warranty. Contacted the company about a replacement and they have drug their feet and found every excuse in the world not to replace - even when I own nearly 50 of their pots. I WILL NOT PURCHASE ANOTHER as they do not value their customers or support their products.

    Thank you for the review, Debbie. We are sorry this did not last for you. As noted in your correspondence with a Customer Solutions Representative, this unit was not defective. This kettle warmer is meant to be used with wet heat only. Adding too much water or not using water at all will void the warranty.

    WebstaurantStore Customer Solutions

    We purchased this to hold our soups in. It does a really nice job of keeping the soups warm and the customers happy. I would suggest this if ypu need to keep your soups warm at your restaurant
