Works with Hot or Cold Food

Carlisle Cateraide Series

Learn about the features and benefits that come with Carlisle's line of Cateraide food and beverage transporters!

Let me introduce you to Carlisle's Cateraide IT insulated transport containers, the only transport product to give you beauty and durability in one sweet package. It has a sleek, contemporary design that's perfect for elegant buffets and outdoor parties, and they're durable enough to handle daily transports. The Cateraide IT line includes a 2.5, 5, and 10 gallon beverage server; 4", 6", and 8" top loaders; and 6" pan loader with optional dolly. Cateraides are available in onyx, caramel, and olive. If you're wondering why this front-end loader has a nice, polished look, it is because all Cateraides receive a special coating that gives them a nice, glossy sheen. This makes them more attractive on your buffet table, and the special coating makes them easy to clean.

Some of their best features include thick foam insulation to hold temperatures in the safe zone for over six hours, much better than our competitor. It's got an easy-to-use latch you can open and close with one hand. Top loaders and end loaders have a built-in seal which means no gaskets to deal with. Let me show you some of the additional features of the end loader and how it stacks up against the competition.

First off they have a low profile double hinge that opens fully for easy access. Second, they have wide easy grip side handles for a stable two person lift. End loaders have an amazing dolly - just watch how easy it is to maneuver. Four rotating wheels give this dolly maximum maneuverability.

So to recap, Cateraide Its offer beauty and durability. You'll be proud to serve out of them and enjoy their durable, easy-care use when you're transporting food or beverage. This beauty is a beast.

    A must have when catering. Stacks on other brands of food pan carriers. Keeps food hot for up to 4 hours (although we only use it for a couple hours at a time).
    These cateraide's hold hot and cold food perfectly. Can hold 5 pans. I also bought the carlisle cart to go with it. It allows 1 person to be able to haul multiple cambro's around
    This carrier works amazing at holding food hot for long periods of time. I haven't used it to keep food cold yet, but have had vegetables in pans inside for 3 hours and when I took them out steam hit my face it was still so hot.
    Great product for catering orders. This box is a little bulky and heavy by itself but keeps food warm and you can easily stack another box on top of another.
    Just as good as any other brand. They can take a real beating and still be in great shape. We had 3. Only reason we are down one is cause someone stole it
    Bought 2 of these a few years ago and have been very happy with them. We use them in our catering business often and they keep the food hot for several hours. I have a tip or two for you. Preheat them with hot water in a pan for 20 minutes before you use them. If you are in and out of them much you can also reheat the carrier with hot water in a pan. I can go on and on about the great experiences we have had with them.
    These are great and the packaging kept the product safe and secure during shipping. It arrived on time and was an overall great experience we will order more.
    This is an essential piece of equipment for my business. We are catering company who transports hot and cold food all the time. These catering boxes do the job perfectly, holding hot food hot for up to six hours. The rubber gasket is high-quality, and the plastic insulated box is very easy to clean. My only issue Is these boxes are superheavy even when empty. If I fill one with five trays of chicken enchiladas I’d imagine it weighs over 100 pounds.
    We love our Carlisle food carriers. At such a great price-point, you can't go wrong. We use the black for hot-hot food items, or strictly meat items. We have a kind of color-coded system that works for us based on what is available. Still, these Carlisle food carriers do not disappoint.
    This Food Pan Carrier really worked and kept our food hot for a couple of hours at an event until we were ready to use it. We were able to put five pans in the carrier, as advertised. It is light weight and we purchased the carrier to compliment this and make it easier to transport from the vehicle to the serving area. They wipe down easily with soap and water. A great buy. Recommend.
    Great product for our catering business. Great price. this is our fourth one and they all work wonderfully. Sturdy and easy to maintain and clean.
    The Carlisle Pan carrier has worked fantastic for us. We do a Lot of catering- and these carriers get used and abused. We used to use a more-expensive brand; thinking they were better quality. Carlisle has proven to us that you can get a great carrier for a very fair price. Quality construction, and great at holding temperatures. I would highly recommend.
    Great product! Keeps things up to temp. Ruff, durable, good quality. Hinges are metal and very strong. Latches are very sturdy and hold up well under use.
    This has been a great addition to our catering business. It holds full size pans, 2.5" up to 6" deep. I need to buy another one to keep up with demand. Will be buying the same model again when I get ready to make my purchase.
    We have used these over and over again and will continue to use them. An absolute great product that keeps food items hot when used properly.
    An absolute life saver.... This is very well constructed, less money then it's competitors and a must for busy catering operations. We charge them with hot water and it adds at least 3 hours to the hot box.. Great product!
    This warmer is amazing! It keeps food hot/warm for a few hours which is perfect for catering. The structure is very solid and the slots are perfect spaced for the different size pans. I would highly recommend this warmer based on the outside durability for longevity, as i have seen others that are very cheap and awful looking after a couple years.
    We use these for our our catering business. I have about a dozen of them and they do not disappoint. I can hold 5 full size pans in there if wanted to , but usually opt for 4, but the space is definitely there. It is a sturdy product and it keeps our food warm well over 4 hours.
    We have several of these food pan carriers and they are extremely helpful for making deliveries. They are very roomy and can hold lots of pans.
