The track for the front doors are broke (it is plastic) already because the item was missing the slides when it arrived. I have ask for a replacement track/slide and have not received. Temperature control isn’t consistent.

Great product, heats up to desire temperature almost instantly and keeps things hot. Also easy to fit in my car and transport to use at different events. Three shelves allow for plenty of room inside the case to display products.

I bought this hot display unit for my cafe great product no issues so far shipping was fast and great no damage it is glass price was amazing and I will buy more stuff from webstaurant again

from First bite cafe grafton MA on

This food warmer is a good piece for its price and it is working perfectly fine for what I need it for. It is very big as well. Very easy to operate and clean. The only problem i have is that the little container for holding water in the warmer to keep food moisture is not 100% stainless steel so it is already rusted coz it has water in it all the time. Even we wash/clean the container every day, we cannot stop it from rusting.

from iHeart Tea LLC on

More than expected, very attractive and the high temperature is great , i was very surprised that there’s a small water pan for humidity, highly recommend it.

from Rio Kosher on

We use this unit to keep our take out orders warm. We use several delivery companies, so the front slide doors are awesome! When we are busy they can pull their own orders without hindering our staff.

best buy thus far. i love that the temperature goes up really high. the racks a interchangeable, you can also open it from the front and the back. it stay super hot and doesnt dry out our products. we use it without putting water in the small well. i absolutely love them. please keeo in mind that its pretty heavy too. not something you canvmove arround all the time.


I purchased this item on 4/8, today (4/18) it died. Customer service was not much help. They said they would get back to me within 36 hours. This unit was purchased to display new items in my bakery, and now I nothing to display them. It is that last Avantco product I buy. I know they are inexpensive, but you get what you pay for.
