Works with Hot or Cold Food

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.

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).

Tiferet C. from Sweetie's Cafe & Catering on 12/31/2015

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

Wesley Y. from Hanaro Sushi on 09/22/2020

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.

Salvador C. on 07/08/2019

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

Lisa F. from Fernie Creations Llc on 05/27/2019

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.

Maxie L. on 12/22/2018

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.

Herman H. from In-Stock Supply Inc on 11/09/2018

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.

Peter T. from Weho Sausage And Catering Co on 04/24/2018

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.

Jose J. from Big Wig Tacos & Burritos on 03/05/2018

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.

Lisa H. from Jes Catering on 09/08/2017

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.

David D. from Bad Axe BBQ LLC on 08/31/2017

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.

Eric B. from Hickory River Smokehouse on 08/18/2017

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.

Kyle S. on 07/27/2017

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.

Jonathan C. from Street 24, LLC on 05/03/2017

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.

Monique S. on 04/16/2017

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!

Michael G. on 04/14/2017

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.

James M. from Number 5 Restaurant on 04/07/2017

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.

Shahen M. from Gold Coast Catering on 04/06/2017

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.
