Keep these safety tips in mind when using your Avantco kettle style 11 qt. soup warmers. First, always use the warmer on a solid, level surface. Only use the warmer with wet heat. Add 20 oz. of water to the kettle before placing the bain marie inset into the warmer. Be sure to not overfill it. The bain marie should not float, even when empty. 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. Don't attempt to move or carry the kettle when it is on, or full of hot liquid. When cleaning your kettle, always unplug the kettle first. Never immerse the appliance in water. Lift and remove the stainless steel liner. The bain marie inset and lid are dishwasher safe. To clean the kettle body, use hot soapy water and a rag.

    We love this soup warmer when it is working. Unfortunately, after about 6 months it started to get very inconsistent with the holding temperatures and the dial didn't seem to be working correctly.

    Thus kettle seems to work well except for that it heats our soups up so hot that it breaks them down after a couple hours, even though we set it at the lowest setting. Be advised it gets very hot on the inside.

    from Texas Tea-Licious Posted on

    Works great for our needs! This warmer keeps soup hot all day, perfect temp and no scorching.. Be sure to label soup from the bottom.

    from Nolas Posted on

    We have three of these food warmers--love them! We have used them at catered events as well as in the shop for soups and curries. Very easy to operate, and very easy to clean up. A necessity if you need to keep food warm for longer periods of time. Great buy!

    from Lemon & Sage Market Posted on

    This is a must have for any buisness owner, especially if you have paties. Very profesisionally made. I will continue to recomend this product to everyone..Especially if you are a small buisness owner.

    This Avantco soup kettle has made warming soup and finding a resource to serve it a breeze. We serve right out of the pot. The pot heats soup in no time and its very attractive. This has been a grand investment for our sandwich and soup venue. It is also easy to transport to our catering venues.

    from Jade Vine Posted on

    Great! Keeps soups at a perfect temperature, easy to clean and transport. Be sure the lid hinge is secured between the container insert and the body of the warmer before you flip it open

    from NomNoms Posted on

    We have two of these and they work great. Our customers love the fact we now offer a soup and sandwich combo thanks to the addition of these kettles.

    from k fish comestible Posted on

    So far, so good! Had this warmer for a few weeks and I think it is adequate. It is not a cooker and will not heat your soups and gravies to temperature, It is a holder and will hold temp as long as you heat the product first. I like the lid that attaches to the pot.

    Meh. This is just okay. It's pretty cheap and it feels cheap but it works to keep soup warm. It takes up a lot of space for what it does so we don't use it often.

    I first purchased this soup kettle because of the price, and it did work great for about 4 months. Then the thermostat stopped working and it would just run at the highest level no mater where you set the knob. has great about sending out a replacement, because it was still within the 6 month warranty. Unfortunately, the new one did the same thing. After about 4 months, the thermostat stopped working. This time when I contacted about it, they referred to the manufacturer Avantco. Avantco did not want to replace it because they said that it would most likely happen again because I was using it 5 days a week for 8 hours a day. I'm sorry, I thought that's what commercial meant. did refund my money, so kudos to them, but don't buy this soup kettle if you intend to use it for what it was advertised to do.

    Bought this for meatballs and it is perfect. Keeps the meatballs the perfect temperature. This is perfect if you have a small space and need to keep soups or sauces warm.

    from The Rustic Rack Posted on

    We originally purchased one of these units for soup serving. It was so nice and worked so well that we have since purchased two additional units that are the exact same. They are insulated very well and if we will be using these for a short event, like a lunch we don't typically even plug them in. We always fill the unit with already hot product and when doing so.

    from Cascade Catering Posted on

    this is a great soup pot for any operation where customers are intereacting or serving themselves the soup. Easy and safe to operate and clean.

    I bought this little soup kettle/ warmer because I was needing something for my nacho cheese that wasn't so intrusive and expensive. This warmer is perfect.

    from Nightengale Inc Posted on

    I was looking for a large soup kettle for use during events. This 11 quart model holds a large quantity of soup or chili warm for service.

    Posted on

    Great soup warmers. Very quick heat up and works very well for maintaining soup at a good temperature throughout the day. Very ease of use product. Very good price.

    from Classic Burger Group Inc. Posted on

    I have purchased many of these in the past and this is by far the best one I have ordered. It heats up quality and maintains a good heat throughout the night.

    We use it to keep our sauces at the perfect temperature every time. It has a holder for the lid, so you are not wondering where to set it while serving.
