Keep these safety tips in mind when using your Avantco 6 Qt. round countertop food warmers! First, always use the warmer on a solid, level surface. Only use the warmer with wet heat. Add 16 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 1 to 6 for initial warm up. Once the kettle reaches your desired temperature, adjust the temperature control dial to a lower setting for holding. 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 aluminum liner. The bain marie and lid are dishwasher safe. To clean the kettle body, use hot soapy water and a cloth. Do not use harsh or abrasive chemicals or scouring agents to clean your kettles exterior. If you have any questions, please use our live chat button!

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.

    Had to get one of these after the health inspector said I couldn't use a crockpot any more. It holds the same volume as what I was using previously, has a greater variety of temps and holds it at the correct temperature without burning the soup.
    You can’t go wrong with Avantco, it’s a top prouduct and company stands behind their product we ordered the Avantco RC23161 46 Cup (23 Cup Raw) Electric Rice Cooker / Warmer - 120V, 1650W
    I have been using this for two years, and have had no problems. It takes up very little space yet holds a good amount of food. I use it for hot holding of slow roasted pork and it does a great job. One problem is the lid latch broke, so I just use a pot lid.
    Not only do these warmers look good, but they work well and have a small footprint so you can put them wherever you need them even if space is limited.
    We use this warmer to melt are caramel for caramel apples. It's perfect! It melts the caramel fast and keeps it warm all day for easy dipping.
    Purchased this kettle warmer for our chili. Looks great on the counter of our front line while keeping the chili at a perfect temperature. Will be buying another one in the future.
    This warmer does the trick. Used it to warm nacho cheese the ease of keeping the cheese's in the can it came in was really nice.
    I love my electric rice cooker as it is easy to cook rice and is very easy to clean. The rice tastes really good and is always fresh. I recommend this rice cooker.
    I appreciate the good price to performance ratio. This warmer works great and is easy to clean. Lid apparatus is clunky and could use some improvement in the design.
    We use our Avantco stainless steel food warmer for our marinara sauce. We serve a lot of mozzarella sticks at our grill and this keeps the sauce at temp.
    This little countertop warmer is great. I use it to hold soup in for service, and it does exactly that. Easy to use, only a couple pieces that all come out easy to clean, and the temperature knob has a wide range which I find to be best for my soups right in the middle.
    Worth the money, but has problems. We bought one of these, and then another to hold soup, and they performed perfectly for a little over a year. So for the price I have to say they are well worth it. However, after a little over a year, the heating element on one of them went bad, and shortly thereafter the other one started leaking - a little drip from the water bath, which seems to be the result of rivets around the interior of the well, fairly low down, pulling through. Again, though, for the price I can't really complain too much. I should also mention that the lid that comes with this set is held on by a small tab that slips in under the rim of the soup insert. If you put it all together before adding soup, and push everything down into the water bath, the insert floats up and the lit falls out. On the other hand, it is difficult to get the tab holding the lid on in after you have filled the soup insert. If you pull out the soup insert, the lid falls off. However, after working with it for a bit you get the hand of it - slip the tab in to hold the lid on, but don't push it down and then let the soup push the whole assembly sink down together. When emptying it, lift the entire assembly out - rim, lid, and soup insert, and then set it down and lower the rim to the bottom, leaving the lid on top of the insert. That way it doesn't all on the floor! Again this is a small quibble about a cost-saving design feature, but depending on your staff it may be something to keep in mind. Read Less Read More
    We appreciate you review, Gil! If you have any questions about the functions of this Avantco unit, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    I ordered two of these warmers, one of the legs fell off of one an hour into use on one. You can not screw it back in because the nut is inside of the unit.
    Thank you for the review, George! We're sorry you've had trouble with this warmer. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon.
    Avantco W300SS 6 Qt. Round Stainless Steel Countertop Food Warmer - 110V, 30th very nice I would recommend this for the money. Buy it you won't go wrong.
    Super little food warmer. It does the same thing all the other ones do at a fraction of the cost. Avantco does it again with this warmer.
    Nice food warmer, makes it easy for servings staff to keep things warm and sanitary. The spoon slot is nice so the spoon does not have to leave the container.
    we just love this 6qt round stainless steel food warmer. at this price it's icy a great value. plug in and go, no worries and super easy to clean.
    This warmer was the perfect size for our pasta fagioli! We previously ordered two of the bigger Avantco warmers which are great for other soups we sell. They are easy for the waitresses to use and easy to clean.
    we just love this 6qt round stainless steel food warmer. at this price its a steal. plug in and go, no worries and super easy to clean. keep the value coming guys :)
    Love this thing! We use it to keep our gelato scoops clean & on the warmer side (easier to scoop that way) and it does the trick. We did have to put another circular metal container on the inside though because the scoops we bought on here (the "non-stick ice cream scoopers") were small enough that they fit in the container horizontally and disappeared under the water! Just be aware of this - you might want to do what we did or just get taller scoops. Love it regardless!
    This has been a great product for us. Easy to use and holds temp with no problem. This is an absolute must for any cafe looking to do small batches of soups.
    It looks nice and worth the money since most warmers are much more expensive. It was difficult to figure out how the clip that holds the lid open works since there were no directions.
