    warmer great soup warm easy clean price warmers Avantco Countertop

    This soup kettle warmer is very helpful specially in buffets, we like that it works great and because of it's size, it can easily be positioned just about anywhere. It is of great quality and we highly recommend it.

    from AMERMEX FROZEN PRD Posted on

    Super kettle warmer at a discount. Avantco does it again with this stainless steel kettle warmer. Quality that matches the other name brands but at a fraction of the price. Definitely recommended.

    from NFQ Posted on

    Ordered my first Avantco warmer in 2013 and worked great until it stopped working in March 2016. I ordered a replacement and very dissapointed that it stopped working today May 14, 2016. I have contact the Webstaurant about the 6 month warranty, so we will see how this is handled. Very dissapointed in the second unit. This could be a fluke, so we will see what happens with the warranty.

    from Ray Benoist Posted on

    Thank you for the review! We're so sorry to hear that the warmer was defective! We will get this resolved directly and will be sending you a new unit under warranty.

    Very nice looking warmer, great quality for the price. We use it to keep our chili warm and keeps it warm all day. Comes with lid and insert, just buy a ladle and your ready to serve

    from DACEMAN LLC Posted on

    The Avantco W800 11 Qt. Stainless Steel Countertop Soup Kettle Warmer - 120V, 800W is a great product. In our restaurant for heating brats. It would also make a great soup pot.

    Posted on

    Got this pot to keep chili warm all day, works great and holds a decent amount to help get through the day. Very easy to clean.

    from 3 Leaf Tea Posted on

    Nice solid kettle warmer and way cheaper than the name brand ones. Durability is good and so far We have not had any problems nor do I foresee any.

    from B-4 Investments LLC dba Wallys Posted on

    We have 3 of these in our bakery and they are perfect - nice looking, holds the soups warm all day and warms up rapidly. Easy to wipe out and clean.

    Posted on

    Great warmer for the price! Have purchased two of these for different locations... Have held up well to daily prolonged use. Definitely would recommend this product, and the price is much lower than comparable warmers.

    from Anduzzi's Sports Club Posted on

    I ordered two of these without knowing what they would be like. They are great to work with and easy to clean. I then bought the smaller model since this worked so well.

    from Ladies of the Dukes Restaurant Posted on

    Great soup warmer at a fantastic price, especially considering it comes with insert. In my opinion, it has a much better design than the volrath equivalent: easier to clean since the element is below the water well, and doesn't boil water out all over your counter when you turn it up all the way. Also, doesn't need a gasket at the bottom of the well, so one less thing to go wrong.

    from South Street Cafe Posted on

    This 11 quart kettle warmer has been great, we keep our barbecue sauce warm, good construction and very good pricing. I have recommend this to other restaurants.

    from We BB Queen 4 U, inc Posted on

    Purchased two of these warmers in Sept. 2013. One still works great but the other has stopped keeping product warm. Was hoping to get more life out of it than this. Unfortunately there is only a six month warranty.

    from Farm To Market Posted on

    You definitely cannot beat the value of these soup warmers. They have served me well at my cafe to heat soups up and keep them at a constant temperature.

    from Grace Coffee Bistro Posted on

    This soup warmer serves its purpose. Its easy to clean and looks nice. Its pretty big. I recommend bringing your soup to the temp you want before placing it in the warmer. It takes it a while to warm things up.

    from The Grilled Cheese Incident Posted on

    It should have light indicate the power on and off that sometime not sure it still work or not? But the good side is it warm soup not over hot.

    from RAWR Sushi, LLC Posted on

    We use this for chili, soup and other food items (and even as a "hot water bath" for sauces we want to keep warm!). We have used these for a long time and have never had any heating issues, etc... Great item.

    from EVOKE Posted on

    from UVAVERDE Posted on

    This is probably the MOST amazing products we've purchased here. It's a good size (we can fit lots of soup in it), the stainless steel finish looks great in the shop!

    This is a very nice soup pot. It heat up quickly and maintains the adjustable temperature consistently. I will be ordering more for my second cafe location.

    from Carolina Cafe Posted on

    This soup warmer is perfect for our bakery/café. Very easy to use and works perfectly to keep soup hot and ready to serve. Just what we needed.

    Fast shipping and handling. Thank you so much. We will keep your website store as our reference. First time purchasing and we are satisfied. Have a good one.

    from Wild Ginger Posted on

    So good! I keep warmed chocolate in this to quickly dip strawberries, bananas, and other items and it does an outstanding job! My last one had a tendency to burn the chocolate on the bottom but this one hasn't yet!

    Posted on

    This is a nice size warmer for my small juice shop. It keeps everything warm as it should and so far there have been no problems. They've been in service for about 2 months now. Worth the money to me for sure.

    from The Juice Cellar Posted on

    Good size warmer. Soups Stews warm up great ! Time taken for the temperature to be reached is much less. Keeps food warm for a long time.

    Posted on

    We purchased 3 of these for catering and events. They heat up fast and keep the contents at the perfect temp. Very attractive to display and easy to clean.

    from Natural Contents Posted on

    The Avantco Warmer works perfect. It is very easy to clean and keeps soups warm. The lid fits very well and allows for easy transport.

    from Tranquillity Posted on

    These soup warmers are great! The water chamber is one complete piece so that the heating element is not exposed to water. We have switched all of our warmers over to this brand. We have been using them every day for over 1 year with no problems. A LOT cheaper than other brands earns the 5 stars.

    from Stadium Sports Grill Posted on

    I needed a solution for my dining room to serve some hot sauces on special occasions. We use this electric warmer mostly for hot fudge on Ice Cream Sundae nights and it performs flawlessly. Easy to clean and provides a good steady heat.

    from Aston Gardens, Pelican Marsh Posted on

    Absolutely the best price anywhere. No sacrifice on quality. Operated very well, keeping our product at a steady, safe temperature without altering the taste or consistency. Lightening fast delivery. Wow!! Thanks.

    from HAP'S SPECIALITES LLC Posted on

    Very reasonably priced compared to our local restaurant equiptment suplier, looks good, comes with an 11 quart insert and lid...so far so good...I ordered two

    from Dishes At Home Posted on

    We have a couple of these warmers and they work well. The water under the pot helps to evenly heat the contents. The stainless finish looks nice.

    from Stacks Market Posted on

    this is realy a good food warmer. we use it for soup and it holds enough soup for the day. it looks good and for the price you can't beat it.

    Posted on

    These countertop warmers keep items piping hot for hours! They work great for making soup service go smooth during a busy dinner service! Easy to set up a separate soup station for servers!!

    Posted on

    We have two of these and they work great for dipping chocolate in our business. Customers love our strawberries now that we dip out of these.

    from RMCF Posted on

    Great little unit. Holds lots of liquid and takes up only a little bit of counter space. Doesn't draw a lot of power so very good in a small setting

    Posted on

    These are great. For years we have used the more expensive ones and they go out as radidly are these that do a good jog!

    from SMOKEY J'S Posted on

    Excellent soup solution for great low price! We have had this product for only about a month, but so far I must say it does it's job while taking up a rather small amount of space which is a big plus.
