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.

    Lid is a little awkward to attach, but once you get the hang of it, works like a charm. Use it for cheese sauces, and it keep it holds the temp and keeps sauces smooth and creamy all day

    from Yurplace Posted on

    I like this one because it looks expensive and fancy . If you are looking to class up your buffet line then I would recommend this soup warmer.

    from blended llc Posted on

    This is a great product! We use it to make and hold our queso cheese dip. It doesn't burn the product like other one do.

    Thought I would give this brand another try since there isn't a whole lot of choices for soup warmers. Like most Avantco products I have purchased in the past, they either break apart after the warranty or start to rust away just like this one. Just only after one use, the "stainless steel" inset started to rust. This is my FINAL purchase with this brand. -"You get what you pay for"-

    AMOK always turns to Avantco for equipment for our restaurant. This 11 Qt. soup warmer is a great value and allows us to keep our products hot and ready for our customers.

    from AMOK Posted on

    Prefer this one over the smaller unit. It cleans up easily too, which makes this a double bonus. Affordable, and sleek, double winner that is for sure!

    from Honey B Posted on

    This is a great little soup kettle that we use to keep one of our hot sauces warm during off-site events. They draw a good dose of electric so be prepared with your electrical needs, otherwise they work just as advertised.

    from Get Off The Couch Events, LLC Posted on

    I love this 11 quart stainless steel warmer! It is great for holding soup hot all service long! It works well for hot holding chili or stews for family meal!!
