These warmers are excellent - same item in my area well over $200.00 shipping into canada was seamless cant beat the value for your dollar here
Mike R. from mike rawluk Posted on 11/21/2014
Keeps food very warm. Heats up very quickly. Very solid construction. Perfect size for full size hotel pans, 2" or 4". Would definitely buy another one
Maria D. from Lemongrass Grill Posted on 11/14/2014
This really come in handy for the band concession. We highly recommend them. Good quality for the money. We will be ordering a lot more item in the furfure.
Sherry C. from CHHS BAND Posted on 10/24/2014
Works well and holds up to 27 Quarts! The stainless steel cleans easily and the design fits nicely against countertop walls as opposed to wasting space with round models.
Sarah b. from Here, There and Everywhere Cafe Posted on 10/11/2014
Very affordable , easy to use and structurally sound food warmer. We ordered two of these warmers and have found that not only are the inexpensive they are also built to last and an item our kitchen could not do without. I would have no problem promoting this product and would recommend it highly to anyone in the market for buying one...
Angela M. from The Blue Flame Grill Posted on 09/29/2014
I purchased this for a small bakery. I use it to keep a soup and a hot lunch sepcial in daily. It works great and the price was unbeatable.
Jessica B. from Kaylees Bakery Posted on 09/20/2014
This item works as advertised and is a cost effective way for us to hold hot items. We use it for au jus and soups. Note that it doesn't come with a lid, and water must be dumped out(or evaporated) to change.
Dan C. from Rip City Sandwiches Posted on 09/19/2014
I bought several of these for my restaurant. The biggest repair problem with any brand of these food warmers is the thermostat. I have replaced them in just about every brand. With that being said. This particular company DOES NOT SELL parts to there units. Its not, will the thermostat go out. Its when, because it will. Spend the extra $20 on an APW with replaceable parts. You will be much better off in the long run!
Steve M. from McCain Restaurant Group Posted on 09/08/2014
Thank you for your review! We’re sorry to hear you didn’t like your food warmer. This item is an excellent value and is great for start-ups. You are right, for a more heavy duty food warmer, try APW Wyott Food Warmer instead.
WEBstaurantStore.com Customer Solutions
Great warmer. We use this all day long six days a week. Keeps hot things hot. The only way to empty the water is to dump it over though.
Lysandro W. from Chanticleer Eatery Posted on 09/06/2014
These are great and affordable warmers. They work great as a substitute for chafing dishes when we are working long festivals. The only drawback would be the amount of power they use (10 Amp), but as long as your electrical needs are ready, they work like a dream.
Keith C. from Get Off The Couch Events, LLC Posted on 08/10/2014
This is an invaluable item in our kitchen - keeps prepared food to serving temperture for as long as needed through out our work day. Easy to maintain. To empty at end of day I bail it out with a pitcher as the water is boiling hot. Keeps the hot water off of me!!!
Michelle M. from The Wooden Spoon Family Restaurant Posted on 08/06/2014
This Avantco electric countertop food warmer is another commercial kitchen must have. This is easy to use, easy to clean and doesn't take up a whole lot of space
Peter H. Posted on 07/29/2014
Excellent I use it for more than just heating and keeping the food pans warm, sometimes I use it to reheat vegetable. I get the water hot, add a perforated pan filled with vegetable and cover, turning it into a steamer.
Dreka H. Posted on 07/09/2014
This became a game changer for our restaurant when used out at waitress station to serve soups from. Freeing up the back for the cooking allowing waitresses to get their cups of soups during noon rush eliminating any delays. Perfect size.
Terry M. from Stellas Cafe and Catering Posted on 05/16/2014
SO wish I would have bought this sooner! We had a 4-basin steam table that housed nine 1/3rd pans - and we only used three of those! It took up so much space, wasted water (we filled it everyday), and it wasted labor with how long it took to clean! If I was smarter, I would have sold that thing and bought this! It heats up quickly, is small, and does the job, AND IS MOBILE. You don't get that with a steam table, 'cause it needs to be hooked up to a water source! Buy this, you won't regret it!
Brianna C. from Wooden Paddle Pizza Posted on 05/06/2014
We have been using this warmer for almost a year and it warms perfectly everyday. I do wish the light would go off when it is "off"
Kimberly S. Posted on 04/04/2014
Cant beat it!!! Best bang for your buck. I use this a big events when I need extra steam tables on hand. It heats up fast and stays temp for a while. Great buy. will recommend to others.
Brian M. from Pretty Odd Wieners Posted on 04/04/2014
We are happy with our purchase of this counter top food warmer. It is sturdy and good quality. It's easy to clean. We would recommend it.
Eric H. from B.C. Bagels Posted on 03/27/2014
I am very happy with this steam table. It was very economically priced and is holding up very well. This is only the table, you need to purchase the inserts separately.
Lisa B. from Branding Iron Roadhouse Posted on 03/24/2014
I now own two of these because the first one that I bought worked so well. Originally purchased for our concession trailer, we are obviously going to use them for our new brick and mortar. They heat up fast, hold temp well, and are light and easy to move. What else could you want?
Barry H. from A Tasty Affair Posted on 03/05/2014
Great Warmer. Heats up very quickly and stays hot. Does not scorch on the bottom and doesn't take up alot of space. Dial stays in place well.
Jennifer W. from Bar Symon Posted on 03/04/2014
First unit that we had died after about a month of on and off use. Webstaurant replaced it with no questions asked and we've been using the new one daily for over a year without issue. Good for the money.
Gene A. Posted on 02/24/2014
This product is great. I have a small cafe that specializes in homemade soups and this product allows me to keep my soups at the optimal temp. Great value
Michael G. from Souperb Cafe Posted on 02/16/2014
Great food warmer for the money. We now have 8 of these we use in our catering business and they work so much better than the chaffing fuel as long as you have somewhere to plug them in.
Andrea B. Posted on 01/22/2014
THis warmer is a fantastic addition to our concessions. We use it with 4 quarter pans with a divider and it works great. It keeps the food hot and fresh and the water will keep all day without having to add more. The temperature control works great in adjusting the levels of heat needed for your steamer.
Margie S. from Tripleplay Sportsplex Posted on 10/31/2013
We had considered doing an actual buffet bar with the sneeze guard and knocking out walls. But these have saved us alot of money and we were able to do exactly what we wanted to do with them. Meats and vegetables and at affordable prices, very easy to maitain and efficient temperatures and we were able to step up our business
Tammy C. from Childers Truck Stop LLC Posted on 10/23/2013
Good design, Great Price ! Heats up in no time and keeps food warm for hours. Use it at home or in stalls. Good deal.
Swati M. Posted on 10/14/2013
I have 2 of these and have had them for almost 2 years. They work great and are easy to clean. Well worth the money.
Virgil P. from PETRI'S POUR HOUSE INC Posted on 10/09/2013
The Avantco Electric Food Warmer is wonderful. I received it the very next day and is very easy to clean. Never have to worry about the food temps.
Terry M. from Tranquillity Posted on 09/23/2013
No issues does the trick. We use this product to keep food hot during cratering events. I can adjust the temp easily, so I can make sure the product is held at the ideal temp.
Matt W. from Merkin Foods Posted on 09/19/2013
These food warmers are excellent! Most foods stay at the required 140 degrees Fahrenheit between 3 and 4 on the warmer dial. And the dial goes up to 6! I empty, wipe down, and use my warmers on a daily basis. *I use my warmer to melt down marshmallows to make rice crispies treats!
William U. from Valley Fellowship Church Posted on 09/12/2013
Bought these warmers for off-site catering and they do a pretty good job of keeping food warm for long periods. The prices are very reasonable. Perfect for small businesses with limited capital.
Keisha R. from Jamaican Pot LLC Posted on 09/11/2013
The Avantco countertop food warmer works perfectly and is the same quality as those more expensive models. The food warmer is easy to use, setup, and clean.
Thomas B. Posted on 09/10/2013
so far work great ,price was fair i ithink it was best buy i did for food warmer ,i think i can save mony and time when i shop on web staurant store
Bahaa E. from pizza vino inc Posted on 09/04/2013
Fast to heat up, and takes up very little space. We use it heat up, and keep hot cheese for nachos, chili and franks for hotdogs, gravy, even boiled peanuts. Will hold a variety of size pans at the same time.
Jeff G. from Papa's Ice Cream, Inc. Posted on 08/24/2013
WE purchased two of the electric countertop warmers to use in our cafeteria. We needed 4 but decided to go with two and see how they worked. So far, they are wonderful. The hold the food at a designated temperature, are easy to serve from and fit our space very well. We will be ordering the other four shortly.
Patsy M. from First Assembly of God Posted on 08/18/2013
Spend a little more you'll get a much better product. These take a long time to heat up. We switched to the APW food warmers. They work better, last longer but we're starting to switch our kitchen over to Vollrath equipment.
Anthony A. from Capone's Eatery Posted on 08/15/2013
Thanks for reviewing this item! This is a great introductory warmer for the price. It sounds like you have already transitioned to a warmer designed for high volume use but the APW Wyott CW-2A 12" x 20" Countertop Food Cooker/Warmer is a durable alternative.
WEBstaurantStore.com Customer Solutions
Purchased 4 in December, 1 stopped working in Feb, I assumed the staff must have did something wrong, so I didn't return it. The 2nd unit went bad last week, and the warranty was 6 months, the items are not repair/replaceable. I was also informed that I could not receive a discounted replacement. I would not recommend this item.
Carleen C. Posted on 08/06/2013
Thanks for your review! If you have issues with any products, please contact us to see how we may help. This product is a quality warmer offered at a great price. If you are looking for a more durable warmer, check out the APW Wyott CW-2A 12" x 20" Countertop Food Cooker/Warmer.

These little warmers are great. They work every bit as well ans warmers that cost twice as much or more. Heat is very consistent. I use several of these in my kitchen instead of a steam table. So much easier to clean. Definitely a great buy for the money !
Jason R. from Tubbys Diner Posted on 06/09/2013
I ordered 2 of these even though I initially was going to purchase a different brand. Upon clicking on the initial brand the Avantco brand came up as a promoted item and it was slightly less expensive. Well, within 30 days of operation it failed and stopped working. Webstaurant store was great in that they mailed us a new one, but that one also failed in a couple weeks. Again, great customer service--Webstaurant allowed us to return the Avantco and gave us a store credit. I purchased the Nemco and so far no issues.
Ehren W. from Bachi Burger Posted on 06/03/2013
We are sorry to hear that you had such an unfortunate experience with this product because it is a popular introductory warmer. Restaurants on a budget appreciate that they can buy a commercial grade food warmer at a great price. It sounds like you have already found a warmer that fits your needs but another warmer designed for high volume use is the APW Wyott CW-2A 12" x 20" Countertop Food Cooker/Warmer.

this unit is great. it is compact, we had it for months now and it is working great. the price was very good, will recomend this .
A. N. Posted on 02/04/2013
Love these Avantco Warmers! When turned to high they heat up pretty quickly, then lower it to a lower setting and it stays warm/hot all day. The water also doesn't evaporate quickly, which is nice, filled it once lasted 4 days. Highly recommend!!!
Lina B. from Doughlicious Cakes Posted on 01/29/2013
it is a nice warmer. it hold up your food nice and hot as well. small and easy to carry. moreover, it doesn't take a lot of space in your facility.
En-Chieh L. Posted on 12/04/2012
Great tabletop warmer that is reliable, heats up quickly, doesn't draw much current and it easy to put away when not needed. Can't beat this price.
Alex D. from Alex D. Posted on 11/28/2012
This product is very useful and heat up food very nicely. IT is durable and will keep the food warm and preventts it from becoming cold
Matthew B. Posted on 11/22/2012
this is a very nice warmer. it is very easy to use and very easy to clean. it do not take up a lot of space.
elizabeth H. Posted on 11/18/2012
We have one and had to buy another. It heats up very quickly and maintains the heat without having to refill the water for hours and the clean up is very easy.
Elizabeth T. from Lizzie T's Coffee House Posted on 11/13/2012
I have paid much more for countertop warmers and have them burn out sooner. For the price this is a reliable product which I would recommend.
Jerry S. from Lefty's Wings and Grill Posted on 10/12/2012
Very affordable product and high quality. i have 3 of these and they work great. Light weight, easy to transport, and We use them every day to serve a school of 150+ children. Great product for a great price.
Bryan B. from Hot Meals Posted on 09/26/2012
At the Spirit of Hope, Butterfly Cafe, we have to keep a constant temperature for foods such as soup or chili. Because we serve to people who are constantly coming and going, it is advantageous to have the two Avantco food warmers filled with soup, chili anything that needs to be kept at a certain temperature for any length of time. I recommend these warmers to anyone who needs such a convenience.
Paulette D. from Spirit of Hope/Butterfly Cafe Posted on 09/09/2012
I purchased 2 of these pieces of equipment last year for our food and beverage conversion (Mexican). These items are still working great and fit in the small area perfectly. Easy to use and clean and keep the food nice and hot. With the ability to use different size pans helped alot also.I will be purchasing another one here soon for our bowling cneter.
Vila H. from DFMWR- Fort Riley Habneros Posted on 08/14/2012
bought one 4 months ago for my retail store and died on me. got it returned and changed a new one. after less a month, it died again. We bought this one simply because the one we used to have for 2 years had a rusty appearance so we like to buy a new one to look good! now apparently we made a mistake to buy this product. do not recommend this product at all.
jui-chuan w. from jimmy w Posted on 07/21/2012
We are sorry for your inconvenience with this food warmer, we are currently looking into the problem. In the meantime, you might want to consider the APW Wyott CW-2A 12" x 20" Countertop Food Cooker/Warmer. It provides maximum durability for high use situations. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact customer service. Thanks!

carla D. from c7w concession Posted on 06/16/2012
We use these whenever we have an indoor concession event. They work great & hold heat at a very low setting. Highly recommend them...best bang for the buck by far! Others are double the price & no better!
Edwin C. from Poor Piggy's, Inc Posted on 05/29/2012
The Avantco Electric counter top Food Warmer Is The Greatest. Just put two quarts in the bottom plug in 120v.drop in warmer trays keeps your mashed patatoes and gravey nice and warm. We love it. The price is right .
Angela H. from Harrison Familey Restaurant Posted on 05/10/2012
This food warmer is an awesome, cost efficient method of keeping food at proper serving temperatures. Wish I had invested in one a long time ago.
T D. Posted on 05/07/2012
We just purchased this warmer, and it's been working fine. It has numbers on the heating knob, but we thought it would be helpful if somewhere there would be a temperature degree conversion listed compared to the numbers.
RL B. from Cornerstone Country Market Posted on 05/04/2012
This warmer works wonderful.We have used it with the inserts to keep soup warm on a salad bar. It looks great and is very durable. Would buy another just like it.
Carol S. Posted on 04/19/2012
This warmer has been very useful in our business. We have different size of stainless steel containers. We bought some dividers to make them fit. It is easy to clean.
Lizbeth M. from SWEET CORNER Posted on 04/08/2012

A very inexpensive item to put on your line to help keep hot foods hot while you are waiting to plate or to cook ahead.
Michael S. from Michael Angelo's Pizza, Inc. Posted on 02/22/2012
Keep your food at hot temperatures with this item. Its like having an on the go steam table. It holds full size pans and a variety of other sizes. I recommend this.
Ivan H. from Innovative Catering Posted on 02/06/2012
Great value. We have had many of these and they seem to hold up well, hole constant tempature and last. can't beat it for the price.
Cheryl D. from LASCAS INC. Posted on 01/29/2012

Justin G. from GA CONCESSIONS Posted on 11/11/2011

Lili C. from ace study buddies Posted on 07/29/2011
Awesome product, quick delivery will recommend to others, very durable, keeps all of my items hot even when sitting out side in the elements of mother nature
Jill V. from CJ's Backyard BBQ & Catering LLC Posted on 07/08/2011
Great looking product - exactly as described on Webstaurantstore website. Very easy to use. The size is perfect, not too large. The only problem is I purchased only 2 because I had two older ones. Now these look much better than the ones I had.
Ricardo I. from Richie's Posted on 06/26/2011
I use this all the time easy to take with you for big partys and great for our business. If you don't have one your missing out, easy to use and keeps food hot.
Deborah R. from The Rock Island Bar & Grill Posted on 06/03/2011
We host a community wide dinner once a week and serve approximately 100 people. Trying to keep the food at a consistently hot temperature was a problem until we got this unit. We are very pleased with the looks and the performance of this food warmer. Great price, great unit!
Karen S. from Centenary UM Church Posted on 05/05/2011
great product, and delivered right on time thank you webstaurantstore.com i have been ordering from you for almost every thing i need and the prices are great!!

Steve B. from BBQ Shack Posted on 04/15/2011
Loved it. Best value on potables yet. I use this item for most off site applications. Heats fast and holds food at an even and constant temp
Shawn J. from Grand Lake Casino Posted on 04/03/2011
The main reason I purchased this was to be used as an inexpensive hot dog steamer. So far I've used for that and so much more! heats up fast and holds product food safe for hours! Awesome product, very good buy.

We replaced some older warmers with these and they are great,they keep the food at the correct temperature and are very easy to keep clean
Mike M. from Golden Rule BBQ Posted on 02/22/2011
For the price Avantco can not be beaten. Same product we usaually pay much more for with the same results.Kepp temperatures where you need them. Consistantly good product.
James C. from SMOKEY J'S Posted on 02/01/2011
Works well for us as a soup warmer. Heats quickly and maintains a steady temperature. The only drawback is that there is no drain, which makes replacing water awkward at best. Good value for the money.
Harry O. Posted on 12/07/2010
Outstanding value. Very nice quality heat n serve at an incredible price. For this kind of money, you can afford to have those couple extra units for portable buffet lines and events.
Wesley O. Posted on 11/20/2010
does what we need it to do only better. this product keeps our cabbage rolls at the necissary temperature. we love it becaue of the settings. we don't have to turn it all the way up to have the right temp.
Daniel C. from Delia's Bakery Posted on 11/15/2010
Excellent quality, especially for the price. Allowed us to get into selling soups at low volume. We're going to buy another one for hot holding ice cream toppings!
Chris D. from Custom Confections Inc. Posted on 11/02/2010
This product has been great, keeps constance temps, so products don't over cook, and lets you maintane products, with no loss. Easy to clean and not to large or bulky!

Lisa M. from Zeppe's Pizzeria Posted on 06/09/2010
Had second guessed at first due to price shouldn't have. this warmer has performed very great. just as good as the name brand high priced units
Tommy D. Posted on 02/05/2010
Great Warmer for the price! Can hold various pans but I use the 1/3 size. I have searched other sites and stores. Great Value! Excellent.
Rogina L. Posted on 01/20/2010
This was such a good buy Thinking about another one soon. And it can be used for just about anything. We use it all the time. Thanks,Denise
Denise A. Posted on 12/01/2009
Great little warmer. We needed steam table but didnt have the space for a gas one so we looked at different options. This was the smallest and cheapest and has worked out perfectly.
Jose M. Posted on 11/20/2009
I really really like these warmers. They are inexpensive and work well. I added water before putting a pan inside and it keeps the food warm consistently and throughout.
Christian C. Posted on 11/15/2009
GREAT PRODUCT, EASY TO USE WEB SITE AND WHEN YOU HAVE A QUESTION THEY GET YOU THE ANSWERS, FAST SHIPPING AND THE PRICES ARE GOOD TOO
Terry C. Posted on 11/14/2009
This warmer is very nice and holds a variety of pan configurations. It holds temperature perfectly and cleans beautifully after each use. Clean it faithfully to avoid a water ring around the interior!
Kay J. Posted on 11/13/2009
Very good price and quality is the same as brand name products out there. Unit heats up fast and is just as advertised on site
