Customer Reviews


Very nice heavy duty insulated carrier. We used it to carry hot food for catering that we had to drive 30 minutes away. It held product temp well.

Amber M. on 04/25/2020

I highly recommend this pan holder. it keeps the food crazy hot. much cheaper than other brands, and totally worth the savings. just get the wheels to go with it

Lisa F. from Fernie Creations Llc on 11/01/2019

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. The green color has come in handy when doing multiple caterings- to help keep contents separated between multiple food pan carriers. I highly recommend these carriers- and get carrying colors for ease of identification.

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

Had searched around and could not find a better product anywhere . They actually lasted longer than some I paid much more money and had come highly recommended.

Janice W. from Epting Events on 03/14/2017

Purchased 4 of these Green Cateraides a year ago - initially we purchased them for a large catering event where they held up to being handled by hundreds of staff over a few weeks. Transitioned to regular catering where they are being lugged around, dragged, tossed about etc - yet all are still in great condition - seals and hinges still in perfect order as well.

Mark S. from Roko's Restaurant (Samoa) on 07/26/2016

Best for the money! We received a contract that would require hoot food delivered on a regular basis... problem was that the client is 45 minutes away. We purchased this hot box and problem solved, food arrived pipping hot!

Tony L. on 02/06/2016

These carriers have really been a big help to me when smoking for a big event or a competition. They keep my items warm for several hours while either in transit or on site

Ron W. from White Wolf Smokers on 05/26/2015

I love this carrier. Out of all the various brands, shapes and sizes we own, this one is our go to. It is much heavier than some others, which I believe is directly related to how well it holds temperature. In a rare circumstance we had to hold food for a prolonged period of time. after 16 hours, the food all temped out perfectly.

Brian B. from A&A Hitching Post on 05/04/2015

We absolutely love our Carlisle Food carrier. This product keeps food hot for a long time, and makes transportation for catering jobs very easy! I would definitely recommend this product.

Bekahandco L. from Becky's Place on 03/05/2014

These hot boxes work perfect. Gasket and locks work well. I bought the dolly too, its nice not to have to lug them around anymore! I highly recommend it

Matt D. on 05/15/2012

Gail S. on 03/20/2012

Thank, thank you. This food pan carrier works well for my catering business. I will be ordering more. It is easy to carry and transport.

Lili C. from Ace Study Buddies on 02/16/2012

I love my Carlisle food transporters! I have purchased 2 of these (so far) and use them constantly. Seal is still good, easy to clean, sturdy hardware and great colors too! Works very well for cold food without using ice. Keeps food within safe temp for up to 4 hours. Great for events where guests will not eat for a few hours after our arrival.

Cheryl T. from The Savory Spoon Catering Co. on 02/08/2012

I think these are amazing food carriers. I dont only use them for keeping food hot but for keeping it chilled. We load them with chillled product and place them out with the grill so people can order while on the course.

Anthony G. on 02/08/2012

Wanted to make sure transporting food was easy and that it would be kept warm, so far so good! Have only used this a few times but haven't had a problem yet

Danielle A. on 01/02/2012

This is an Awesome Pan carrier, We use it on all catering jobs - if you pre-heat it , it will hold food at great tempature for well over 6 hours, and it will still be smokin hot !!!!!!

David U. from JONABELLA CATERING on 11/01/2011

Very Happy with these carriers. We own four of them. Very durable, well made, and serve many purposes for hot or cold foods. Love how it allows for several sizes of food pans.

Wedding D. from WD on 05/23/2011

Iam a small time cater that was looking to find a product that was easy to tranport from place to place.I would recommend this item very highly it's keeps the everything in place and food stays warm.

Kathleen D. from KMD Event Management on 03/14/2011

We own 8 of these. 2 are gray which are used for salad related items. They hold everything hot or cold. We use one to hold, distribute and store our utensils. They work with most metal food pans (check them before you buy pans) but are designed for the Carlisle Top Notch food pans although other companies will work in them as well. Use quality gaffers tape (it's like duct tape only it is cloth based with better quality adhesive) place it on the front door and mark the contents. They are a God send for caterers.

Amanda G. from Cakes, Catering & More By Mandy on 03/07/2011

I cannot say enough on how good the carrier is. I use it for BBQ catering to put boston butts in when they come off the smoker. This is a must have and you can't go wrong investing in one of these.

Jeff B. on 10/31/2010

My set of these boxes do a great job of keeping food hot or cold. It helps if they're prepped with hot or ice water. They can hold either hotel or half-sheet pans. I get different colors so I can send to different areas during an event. I wish they were a little lighter, though. Loaded, they require 2 people to move or use of a dolly.

Rochelle M. from Rochelle Myers Catering on 09/29/2010

I checked every where and the price was great here. I have used the carrier and am very pleased with how its made. The food stayed hot for well over the four hour rating. I would recomend

Jj P. on 08/13/2010

I started a catering business and had never used one of these before. The first time I used this I was totally amazed on how well it holds in the heat. I used it for an out of state dinner and was delayed 6 hours in a snow storm. When I finally removed the food from the carrier, it was still so hot we could not eat it! Definitely get one of these!

Mike V. on 01/27/2010

I really like this box. I do BBQ contests and cater some and it works great. It will hold 2 six inch deep pans and one 4 inch deep pan all at the same time. Which means that I can fit a ton of butts in it and keep them piping hot for hours.

Jake C. on 01/22/2010

I love my Carlisle. It keeps foods hot or cold. It is easy to move around and a must if you do a lot of cooking.

Janice D. on 10/11/2009

I am not sure how I lived without this carrier for so long... It keeps the food nice and hot during transport and saves tons of room in my vehicle.
