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. Do not use harsh or abrasive chemicals or scouring agents to clean your kettles exterior. Thanks for watching, and if you have any questions, please use our live chat button!

    I use this for my soup and porridge every day keep my soups & porrige nice and warm at a good temperature where it not to hot . very easy to take apart and clean come with soup labels very clutch
    The 11 Quart size makes it plenty large enough. The adjustable temperature control allows you to keep things the perfect temp. I just used it for a larger event with homemade Mac-n-Cheese and it worked perfect.
    I highly recommend this soup warmer. Having limited counter space, we needed something that didnt clog up much room. It breaks down excellent for easy cleaning and even storage if you do not wish to use it year round.
    We operate our warmer in 2-3 hour stretches twice per day. Always keeps the soup or gravy piping hot, hinged lid makes service simple. Cleaning is a breeze.
    This is the 3rd kettle weurchased for our deli. Very well built, looks nice, heats evenly just wish they would last a little longer. Seems after 1 year, they stop heating
    This soup kettle is perfect for serving our homemade soup and gravy. It feels great but light enough to move around the kitchen when needed. It also has a nice and sturdy knob for controlling the temperature
    My youngest son birthday was near. We planned a rodeo party. We bought this unit to be a center piece to our chilli bar. It was a big hit.
    Perfect size for my mobile food cart business. It keeps soup at the perfect temperature to serve immediately, I have had nothing but good reviews from customers. May need to buy another one.
    Did the job nicely. Kept a good amount of soup hot but didn't overheat it. Looks decent and doesn't take up a lot of space. The only thing that was mildly irritating is that you have to remember to check the water level; it does evaporate more quickly than others I've used. But overall, you can't beat it for the price.
    I've had my kettle for a couple of years. It gets the job done. Great for soups, chili, cheese or anything that you need to keep warm.
    I didn't know what to expect since I ordered these online and couldn't see them but I was more then please when they came! They work great.
    This is a new affordable addition To my catering business. Works great for soup and or chili. There is the temperature setting to serve it just the way you like it.
    this is great to have for soup. it is really easy to clean and holds a lot of soup or whatever you put in it
    The Avantco S30 11 Wt. Round Black Countertop Food/Soup Kettle Warmer is perfect for serving soup! In our cafe, we keep the soup kettle behind the counter and serve our customers. We have also taken these soups kettles to catering events, full-service and self-serve. They're great at heating soup without burning it, easy to serve from and easy to clean. When I'm transporting soup to an event, instead of the cover (which I still bring), I put tinfoil on top to prevent spills in the car.
    Works like a champ, it looks great too! We’re thinking of added a second one. We would get the same one again for the cost and quality not tea s better but put there
    Oh my goodness! These are the cutest kettles EVER! They are very easy to use and warm up very quickly. The kettles will be used to serve soup at a winter wedding.
    Decent soup warmer (that we used for grits) but always had an issue with the lid coming off and not staying on tight. For the money it’s decent.
    As a soup focused restaurant, we needed these of course! We have at least 4 of them in use every day for 9-10 hours and they are work horses. We've had no problems at all.
    This soup pot is very cute. It keeps the soup warm. My only problem is the lid. I have the hardest time getting that to work correctly. Besides that, I love it.
