    Great for keeping food warm for quick service. Easy to clean. Ours did burn out after six months,so we ended up switching to the 1200W. both are great.

    This machine is great. It is priced very competitively. This unit can boil water, I love this feature. If you are just looking for a basic water table to hot hold soup, there is another model that is cheaper.

    Excellent warmer. My only mistake was not confirming if our electrical panel was able to support 3 warmers. It is not. Fuse kept blowing, we can only use one at a time. Please note these are 1500 watts each!

    Great warmer from Avantco. Very easy to use and convenient. Keep our metleted chocolates in proper temperature all day long. Highly recommended. Will buy more.

    Been using this regularly as both a warmer and cooker. Heats an entire pan of foil wrapped bean burritos to 140+ in about 20 minutes and keeps them very hot. High wattage however (1500w), so it sometimes trips the GFCI outlet or even the breaker if there is no GFCI. It also does not have a temperature dial, just goes from low to high so regulating temp is tricky.
    This food cooker is so fast. Heats up very quickly. Exactly what I need im my food truck or at farmers markets. Doesn't take up much space.
    Must have in a kitchen for hot holding sides, sauces and the like during busy service. most of these warmers in general work good and since they have a set shelf life under heavy use, this a very good budget friendly model.
    We use this to keep soup warm on our kitchen countertop. Really keeps it to a great temperature and the outside doesnt get too hot to touch!
    I used the Avantco cooker/warmer for a Catering to heat up both sausage links and brisket out on a golf course and they worked great for me. I heat entire 8qt pan with no problems at all, also keeps the food at a safe serving temperature. I would recommend the Avantco full size countertop food cooker and warmer for anyone looking for a great product. I used two warmers all day with no problems.
    The Avantco 1500W Cooker/Warmer has been great for our yarn dyeing business. It produces a nice even heating. If it got up to temperature a little bit faster it would get a full 5 stars. Plus it has a bit of a wobble to it. For yarn dyeing purposes that isn't a deal breaker. We will definitely look to purchase a few more of these in the future.
    This baby is awesome it stays hot hot I would say you could almost cook with this thing A+ for this unit it handles alot of moveing around as well
    I’ve purchased two these they’ve been in my restaurant for over a year they are very efficient easy to clean well-built no issues. I highly recommend.
    This was just what we needed. As described, a counter top food warmer. Worked great for us until it just quit heating one night right in the middle of service. It didn't cost a lot but we only had it for 6 months. I certainly had hoped it would last at least a year. For the most part I love webstaurant but, you do get what you pay for. Some webstaurant items are an inferior quality.
    Thank you for your review, Valerie! We are sorry this Avantco W50CKR 12 inch x 20 inch Full Size Electric Countertop Food Cooker / Warmer - 120V, 1500W has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    Very impressed with the packaging care for shipping and the quick delivery. The customer service is great too. Can't hardly believe how fast my items arrived! Thanks Webstaurant!
    The cooker warmer is a good addition my warmers. I can get more heat to reheat to temp. and then keep warm for long periods.
    Had one when I bought my restaurant and it was amazing. Heats up so quickly. Much better than the brand I had when I bought my restaurant
    Keeps the food hot hot hot. Easy to use, easy to clean. A really good value for the price, and doesn't take up too much room.
    A 1500 watt Hi power unit is excellent choice. I use this for my soups. I check the water level on it and I have not had to add any during the day when I am open. But it is a good idea to check it. I love the price of this unit it was able to let me expand my menu.
    this Avantco full size electric countertop food cooker/ warmer is very useful and I love it I highly recommend this product it is very handy.
    This is not just a warmer, it’s a Cooker too! So you can get the water boiling in the unit. 1500W is fast and really heat up everything in few minutes.
