    This soup kettle warmer has really come in handy while we have done soup to go for our winter take out program. Good value and works well.
    First time using I added a little water to the bottom as it calls for and somehow it started leaking through the bottom, I never figured out where the leak came from but luckily my money was credited back onto my account. But this isn’t the first time a product of theirs hasn’t worked for me. They’re cheap and poor quality. Do yourself a favor & purchase something better from somewhere else.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    We bought 2 of different colors to use for different soups. It was larger in size than we wanted. we have limited counter space and cant use these. They looked durable, easy to clean material, but larger than i expected.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    perfect size kettle to cook for a crowd. Could have used a little clearer instructions as to how the lid fits onto the pot, it took several of us to figure that out
    Perfect for that extra item you don't have room on your steam table for. It keeps food hot. Easy to clean and operate and didn't need an outlet converted to get started. It was an easy plug and go addition.
    For the price this is a really great soup warmer. Heating element standing up after 2 years now. I don't like the way the lid and collar fit so loosely and are very light, but for the price you can't really go wrong.
    The soup warmer is very good quality and design, easy to clean, light, warm up the soup perfectly. Perfect size so it doesn't take so much space. I highly recommend this product. We use it for our miso soup.
    This soup warmer keeps your food really warm and will hold 11 qt which is great for a large group of people for a tailgate party or any get together.
    This item keeps my soups warm. Its large capacity helps minimize having constantly keep making soup. It’s a valuable asset to my buffet at my restaurant.
    Works great for soup, macaroni and cheese, Italian beef, etc. Heats up well and holds the temperature. Easy to clean. I would recommend this product.
    This kettle warmer is used for our seasonal fresh soups and our house made oatmeal. It keeps the contents warm for hours while keeping it fresh.
    We ordered tow of these for soups during the winter months. I rated 4 stars because the lids are a little easy come apart when in constant use. They can be quite difficult to get situated just right when you're in the middle of a service. Otherwise, they work perfectly.
    This product is very good quality. This soup kettle works amazingly well. I would recommend to everyone. Thank you so much for fast shipping !
    They are cheap, easy to clean and look very presentable. The problem is both that I purchased were not able to regulate heat within 1 year. They heated the soup to max 200+ degrees regardless of where the knob was set. Not happy to have to replace in such a short period. When both have the same issue, it's not an anomaly.
    It works really well till it goes bad. I’ve had two in the last 6 months (one a replacement). The temperature adjustment quit on both of them and it just stays on high no matter what setting you have it on. I would not waste my time or money.
    This soup kettle works amazingly well. The temperature adjusts from not hot enough to way too hot for most hot soup. It took me a couple of tries to find the right setting for what I needed but I haven't had to adjust it since then.
    We bought 4 of these and are very pleased with the performance. Warm up fast and keep temp for the length of the shift. Great Product!
    This kettle works perfectly to heat up our meatballs for meatball subs and keep soups warm. It replaced an older/smaller model we had. This model is working great so far!
    This soup kettle is perfect for our catering business. We also use it for breakfast gravy for our breakfast buffets. Works for so many different things!
    The pot is larger Than I expected, it heats up fast, the rim gets very hot, be careful you can get a serious burn. It is easy to clean, I love mine. I just ordered my 4 pot, excellent warming pot, very attractive sitting on the counter. I’m confused by the magnet that was provided for soup labeling, it’s hard to attach a flat magnet on a curved surface, I haven’t figured out how to get it right. I will throw out the magnet and use mini chalkboards to label the soups, problem solved.
