Once the kettle reaches your desired temperature, adjust the temperature control dial to a lower setting for holding.

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 aluminum liner. The bain marie and lid are dishwasher safe. To clean the kettle body, use hot soapy water and a cloth.

This video will explain how to make caramel apples using eco-friendly skewers, Carnival King caramel dip, and an Avantco W300 soup warmer. To begin, remove the insert from the warmer and add 32 oz. of water. Preheat the warmer to the number 8 setting or medium high heat. While the unit is preheating, remove the label from the caramel dip can and open the can. Remove the lid from the caramel dip can and insert it into the preheated soup warmer. Place the soup warmer lid back on the soup warmer and let it heat for 1-2 hours. You will want the temperature of the caramel to reach 175 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit before use. Be sure to stir the caramel once it has reached this temperature. Next, skewer room temperature apples and dip them in the caramel. Spin skewer between your fingers to help the excess caramel come off the apple. Then place on a sheet and let cool for 20 minutes before serving.

    Great product with the exception of the hinged lid. It does not come with any instructions on how to fit the hinged lid in place and we struggled for over an hour trying to get it to work. Finally gave up and just use the lid as an separate item. Great product otherwise.
    The caramel is amazing and easy to work with and our customers really enjoy our candy apples. We have also made the clusters with the caramel and our customers preferr without the chocolate. We are very satisfied with this product...
    These work great for keeping soups hot throughout the day. They are also easy to clean which makes them even more convenient and nice to use.
    I use this warmer to melt my caramel at events to produce caramel apples. Best thing ever! Very easy to use, gets caramel ready with 2 hours.
    This is a smaller version of the warmer that stores chowders for our deli line. Works well and cleans up easily. Great price for the product. Would highly recommend.
    Overall a tough and resilient product. We have used these every weekend for over a year and they all continue to work. Only complaint is the feet on them will fall off making the pots sit uneven. Make sure to tighten the feet very tightly to make sure they stay on.
    This is perfect to put soup in or even caramel. We have used it many time and have never had a problem with it. Amazing
    Great product and great savings. Not only for catering but camping as well. Easy to use, reliable and safe around youngsters. High quality in the manufacturing department.
    Very nice quality! Came in it’s original box well packed!! No damages or anything so you can tell it was handled with care! The warmer itself is very nice! For the price we paid it was a great deal.
    great soup kettle fits well in our kitchen, keeps soup at a great temp. Also really easy to clean. Would recommend 100%, to anyone who needs a soup warmer.
    This soup kettle warmer works great in our commercial kitchen. Good quality, keeps product at a consistent temperature, and is very affordable. Will purchase again.
    I bought this product to warm soup but to give me the perfect melted can of caramel for dipping my apples if worked perfectly thanks.
    If I could give a negative rating I would. I am very disappointed in this product. We tried it out for the first time and gave it 6 hours to warm up the caramel and it was still not up to temp. After 6 hours it was only at a temperature of 110 degrees. I would not recommend this product.
    Thank you for your review, Mashaela! We are sorry this Avantco W300BK 6 Qt. Round Black Countertop Food / Soup Kettle Warmer - 110V, 300W has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    This product was a hit at our last catering event in a very high end neighborhood. I have never had so many compliments before on our plating. Thank you!
    works perfectly! keeps warm food warm... at the highest temperature it can get quite hot in there! Great product, highly recommended. perfect for food trucks
    Ok product, really didn’t work that well for what we purchased it for. Watched the video about using for caramel apples, not as easy as the video makes it appear. The caramel took hours to get soft enough to dip apples.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    Perfect for soups and sauces. The product is sturdy and is professionally built. Great product, arrived on time and works great in the soup bar station
    Great size hight and is the same size as my blender. it's definitely not too bulky. Will use for nacho cheese and melting caramel for my business.
    Decided to add a smaller kettle warmer for our food truck to hold meatballs and or chicken teriyaki, this was the best option available and by far the cheapest way to go.
    Great countertop food warmer. Excellent price as well. We use this for caramel and chocolate dips in our ice cream shoppe. Just drop in the can of dip and you are in business.
