    Portable, easy to clean, durable, efficient and professional appearance. All of these features make this a good purchase for me. The gasket can be replaced if you lose it or it cracks over time.... mine hasn't.
    These dispensers are awesome and keep our drinks (coffee and hot chocolate) hot all day long. The slim and streamlined look makes storage easy and the simple but effective closing top ensures drinks stay warm.
    This product was surprisingly amazing. We used it for a catering so that was hot coffee around 10 a.m. and the next morning the coffee was still lukewarm. Pretty impressive I must say.
    This beverage dispenser has been great for us. When we cater upscale events and weddings, we like to make sure we look sharp, even with our beverages. The dispenser does a great job at keeping cool beverages at a suitable temperature. The recessed nozzle is tucked back out of the way- keeping it from damage when being loaded and unloaded. Great dispenser- would definitely buy it again.
    We routinely use this dispenser to carry water and tea for BBQ catering. It maintains the temp without checking and worrying about it. Which in turn allows you to place little time and effort into the drinks and focus on the more critical and sensitive issues like the meat. They can be a little heavy, but that's to be expected when you account for 8 pounds per gallon for water and tea...nothing fixes this problem other than a decent cart.
    I like this series of insulated beverage dispensers. Remember to vent the top plug so that you can actually dispense the liquid. They are a bit awkward to haul around, but then again it does hold 5 gallons of liquid.
    Keeps liquid either super cold or super hot! Very narrow dispenser so it doesn't take up to much of my counter space. Looks good also!
    We purchased this beverage dispenser to hold hot chocolate for a hot cocoa bar at a baby shower. It did a great job of keeping the cocoa warm for a couple of hours.
    We use the 5 gallon dispenser to store water to be used for hand washing at outdoor events. It holds the perfect amount of water and is very easy to transport.
    This insulated beverage dispenser, worked perfect and kept our coffee hot and perfect! The weight and size and capacity work well with each other and would recommend to anyone.
    Product is great, keeps hot items hot and cold items cold. Great product for catering events and is lightweight. Recommended for anyone opening up their own catering business and needed for gatherings.
    Ive used this dispenser for 5 events now and it's held up nicely! The dispenser keeps coffee, hot water, hot chocolate, tea and any other beverage warm for a long period of time.
    Excellent product just what we need for our hand wash station. We will use it at the Farmer Markets. The quality is incredible and the price the best. the delivery time spectacular. i recommend this product !!!!
    We purchased Carlisle XT50003 Gallon Insulated Beverage Dispenser. Very Hp y with purchase. Great for both hot and cold beverages. We will be ordering more.
    Arrived a little "rough" looking. Was definitely new, but there are some imperfections in the body. I'm assuming they probably put a little less care into these camtainer alternative and less expensive options. Does the job though! Wish they had covers though. Also, the stickers that it comes with to label your beverages doesn't stick to the box where it's supposed to be labeled. That's a little disappointing.
    This five gallon drink dispenser is a great buy for the money. It is well worth adding to your catering equipment. I would definitely order this product again.
    We had to use this item to serve hot beverages for an outdoor event. It kept the beverage hot for hours and it was really easy to clean. Great buy!
    Purchased this beverage dispenser for my event center to use at a water station. It works perfectly. I fill it about 1/4 with ice and then top with water and it has stayed chilled for the entirety of every event I've used it for so far (max has been 4 hours). No leaking from nozzle. I do wish that the nozzle would be higher so you could fit a taller glass underneath, as I do have to prop it up or have it on the very edge of the table, which is kind of inconvenient if the user drips some water before or after opening the nozzle, then water collects on the floor in front of the water station. Just an FYI for use purposes. Other than that, the unit itself works great!
    Used this dispenser to transport and keep hot chocolate for a couple of catering events. Beverage stayed hot for over 5 hours! All you have to do is follow instructions to fill with hot water so that it warms up before you pour your hot beverage. It was easy to clean too. Very impressed.
    These are great for transporting any hot beverage. Less of a chance of tipping over and spilling. They are also easy to carry because of the handles.
    We do a ton of catering and these things take an incredible amount of daily pounding. After 9 months, they don't leak, the gaskets fit perfectly. They're also lightweight and very easy to maintain. Only small downside is that it's hard to get coffee smell out of the inside of these things.
    From cold to warm beverages, this Carlisle dispenser has performed wonderfully. This is extremely easy to clean and looks great. Also, the spigot; when pulled forward will give what you require and has virtually no leakage once you release the spring loaded handle. However, if you require a constant flow - just push the spigot handle back towards the unit and it will stay in place giving hands free operation. A best buy!
    We use this for remote caters as well as charity donation functions. The coffee has always stayed hot enough and has been easy to transport.
    The Black carlisle XT500003 5 Gallon Insulated Beverage Dispenser Container . It is great for cheuches, catering events,. It is scratch resistent with it polyurithain coating. Has easy tot handles and a pour spout.
    We use these at our catering business all the time. They keep the coffee hot for hours and they are easy to clean. Lightweight, yet durable! These have been dropped by my clumsy employees multiple times, yet they never leak.
    This is a very handy product to have. Especially for large catering events or buffet style services. Especially during breakfast time at a large resort type facility.
    Thank you, I just received this 5 gallon insulated beverage dispenser and on time for my catering. I used for my punch. I love it and easy to carry and transport.
    The 5 gallon Insulated Beverage Dispenser container Alternative,Is great for using in hospital's or rehab centers,We put tea in one and hot coffee in the other .and take them down the halls for the residents.
    Use this item alot for catering event. Use for large amounts of hot coffee, keeps temperature for long period of time. Also good price for this item,. worth every cent.
    This is perfect for Catering or vending. I used it for coffee year round and even in the Winter it still keeps the coffee hot for hours
    This product is very good. It is very portable and easaly fits in to the back of most cars or trucks. I wish it could hold a little more liquid though.
    Sturdy beverage dispenser! It holds enough liquid (hot or cold) to get through a social event. At my old job, we used these for catering events and it was easy to transport them to the place and back. Definitely came in handy!
    this is a great buy for any type of use small groups or large catering events holds hot or cold and seals very tight recomend to everyone
    terrific product and would reccommend to others to purchase this cooler good choice of colors and sizes will buy more later We will use it often
    I used to work at a local college that did catering all over the campus. We used these to keep the beverages hot or cold (depending on the beverage being served). They always kept the beverages at just the right temperature for hours after being filled. They are very sturdy, and do not spill easily when sealed.
    Our church short term mission team does a lot of food catering and sandwich sales and this is the perfect size for travel and does excellent keeping coffee hot and fresh.
    Great for all the functions I run. Keeps the coffee hot for a long time.
