The versatile and unique Vidacasa line from American MetalCraft will bring something totally new to your upscale serving and display collection.

Within each series you can select round, oval, square, or rectangular styles. These Vidacasa buffetware and tableware sets will control the temperature of your foods while presenting them in an attractive and modern way. To use each set, you’ll need an insulated base, hot or cold cells, and a plate. Accessories like frames and lids add to the sleek look of the display. The hot or cold cells fit conveniently inside of the base and you can easily cover the cell from view with a porcelain plate. These cells work to control the temperature of your foods without the extra mess and safety concern of chaffing fuels, cords, gels, or ice packs. Energy is conducted through the flat surface of the cells for even heating and cooling. The hot cells use lithium-ion batteries to transform energy to heat and keep your foods hot for serving. The cold cells have a constant temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit. When you are done serving, hot cells can be recharged by connecting to a 1 unit.

Customer questions about this product

When do I need to use an accessory pad in my Vidacasa display set?
Accessory pads add height to Vidacasa cold cells, so that there is no space between the cell and the serving plate. The Vidacasa H1 cell is slightly thicker than the F10800 cell, so it fits snugly in your Vidacasa insulated base and no accessory pad is needed. However, if you are using the F10800 cell in your insulated base, you must use the pad to make contact with the plate and maintain food safe temperatures.

Vidacasa by American Metalcraft H1 Details

The American Metalcraft H1 Vidacasa iThermo hot cell is a revolutionary way to keep your hot foods hot and fresh for the duration of your buffet or event! This hot cell uses powerful Lithium-ion batteries to transform electricity to heat. The heat is conducted through the flat surface of the cell for efficient and even heating.

Depending on the setting, this Vidacasa hot cell can deliver constant hot temperatures of 176 degrees Fahrenheit or 230 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the setting for up to 3 hours. Simply double tap the top of the cell to turn it on. Though the unit reaches high temperatures, its protective glass top heating surface makes it safe to touch, even during use. An over-heat indicator on the surface will light up when you should avoid touching the unit with your bare hands. A battery level indicator easily lets you know when it is time to recharge the unit.

The H1 hot cell is a safer, more efficient alternative to chafing fuels or fire. It is also portable, so unlike traditional plug-in warmers, you don't need access to electricity and you can hot-hold food in just about any location. It fits inside any S1 Series Vidacasa serving and display set (sold separately) and is easily concealed underneath a Vidacasa porcelain plate (sold separately).

When it's time to recharge the hot cell, simply connect it to a wall unit for 6 hours. It can be recharged up to 500 times. Since this cell is not waterproof, it is recommended to wipe it clean with a cloth and dry immediately.
