    This product does a wonderful job of keeping my beverages hot! Both the lid and the spout are very tight, no leakage at all. Plus, the staff answered all my questions about the item and even had it shipped from a warehouse closer to me so I would get it sooner! Great job, guys!

    We brought the product for a catering services, it is easy to lift with two people, easy to clean with all the removable parts (that's a plus). Recommend this product for anyone.

    This was exactly what we were looking for - we use it for a liquid base that needs to be served and measured repeatedly through our operation. They are sturdy and reliable. Keeps the dairy at safe temps for a whole 8 hours!
    These are great! We replaced some really old containers we were using for catering events, and these worked great. Definitely keep the coffee hot for many hours. They look very clean and it is nice to have all our hulk coffee carafes the same.
    Heavy duty insulator that keeps water hot nearly all day. Easy to carry with the two handles on top. Automatic spout for hands free use
    This dispenser is great at keeping temp and it's easy to clean, but a little large for my business' needs. I will be getting one of the 2.5-gallon sizes soon. In general, though, this is a great insulated beverage dispenser.
    We use this for our big events where we bring hot coffee. Does a great job in keeping the coffee hot and is super light so not too much of a burden to carry. Biggest downside is that it is hard to clean and the plastic retains the smell of coffee.
    We love these hot boxes. They keep beverages hot for over 6 hours which is great for catering events without electricity. They travel well and don't leak.
    A great product! Sleek, stackable, and keeps things at right temp! I got different colors so we know which one is holding which flavor bubble tea!
    This CaterGator Beverage Dispenser looks amazing when I take it to catering events. The black color looks very tasteful AND trendy and lends a classy look to my business. Additionally, the drinks I served from it stayed cold over a period of 2 days, making it evident that this product is well insulated.
    This 5 gallon beverage dispenser is amazing! It keeps your drink cold or hot for a long time. I use this for parties and camping.
    LOVE THIS!!! The hinged lid fits nice & snug keeping bevs hot/cold for 24 hours! I know for a fact because when I picked it up next day the coffee was still hot. Just over 1/2 the price of a cambro at my local Restaurant Depot too!
    These dispensers are burly and seal very well... LOTS of coffee, kept VERY hot, for a long time! We appreciate their rugged composition, as they don't show the bumps they inevitably receive!
    This cator gator beverage dispenser was a heck of a good value and can hold temp for a super long time. Have had no problems so far
    This is a great product. I use it at pop up dinners to keep water cold. It’s perfect for easy fill up and really regulates the temperature.
    Great product! We placed some hot water in the CaterGator overnight and the water was still warm the next day! The build quality of the product is great as well; it'll last many years. Already bought two more! Thank you for such a quality product!
    I use this to serve samples of Hot Chai Tea at farmers markets. It is AMAZING! It keeps it steaming hot during the entire duration for like 7 hours! So happy it is easy to transport, safe and most importantly keeps it steaming hot!
    This is the best value dispenser that I have found. Insulation is good and there is very little temperature drop each hour until the unit has lost some of its volume. It was absolutely worth the investment.
    This 5 gallon beverage dispenser is a great value. Keeps coffee hot for hours, easy to brew into, seals well and easy to clean. Works just as well as the more expensive brand, with a smaller pricetag!
    I have been wanting one of these cater Gator five gallon drink dispensers for a long time. These are such nice quality dispensers. They hold a lot of liquid and have a really nice dispensing system that doesn't make a mess everywhere when people try to get a drink.
    This dispenser is a great value. I use it for hot water holding and it maintains the temperature well. I like that it comes in black, because I have a mobile business. I recommend this product.
    Great easy to use, they have a handwash top attachment that works really well with this. We dispense green tea from it and its easy to haul around, clean and serve!
    This dispenser does a great job holding the temperature of hot and cold beverages. This is an easy dispenser to transport. If there are multiple of them you can stack them securely for transport or storage.
    The Product received was as advertised on the website, good quality, very good comunication, fast delivery. We are planning to get some others. Was a Pleasure dealing with
    These were a blessing for our tea needs . They looks so great at our events and fit in a tight space. Easy to clean too.
    For the price you can not beat these coolers. We had always bought the Cambro version of this dispenser but when we saw the price of these we had to give them a shot. And we are so glad we did. After a year of fairly heavy use they have held up pretty well. We love their stackability. The vent on the top popped off pretty easily, that has been our only complaint so far.
    We purchased 2 of these for our annual winter event where we sell A LOT of Hot Chocolate! They hold A LOT of cocoa and they keep it HOT! My only complaint is that on the gasket you can see where the two ends were put together and one of ours ended up breaking after just a few uses. It is not under warranty so we must purchase backups to ensure one is not out of commission when we need it. Other than the gasket, everything else seems well made & the product has performed as it should!
    You can't go wrong with this purchase. This was a hit at the catered event. I supplied lemonade sweet tea and unsweet tea for this event. The CaterGator 5 Gallon Insulated Beverage Dispenser kept the lemonade, sweet tea and unsweet tea cold for two hours before I packed everything up to leave. I give this Beverage Disperser 5 Stars.
    Catergator 5 gallon black insulated beverage dispenser. Excellent for catering gigs where you'll need a lot of drinks on hand without using too much work. allow customers to be able to serve themselves with the catergator.
    Great product for hot or cold items. Very well built and can keep liquid cold even when the items is exposed to fl sun and high heat. Love it
    These are priced cheaper than the Cambro products, but they are also substantially heavier, and mine does leak a little from the top if you fill it close to the top.
    This beverage dispenser is great for outdoor events. We use it to dispense cold brew or water at markets. The size is great, and allows us to sell over fifty 12oz cups of coffee before needing to refill.
    Upon receiving the container, it seems very sturdy. I haven't used it yet, but the top seems to seal onto the body very tightly. It seems like it will last awhile.
    LOVE THIS DISPENSER! During the summer it keeps lemonade and iced tea cold for hours, even at outdoor functions. Inside it works great for keeping coffee hot. So many uses!
    These 5 gallon drink coolers have been a life saver when we have outside events away from our shop. They keep our drinks cold for hours!
    Can fit 4 of the American Metal Ware coffee pots full of coffee into the Cambro and still have room for more. We have picked these up from caterings the night after an event and the coffee was still hot when we went to clean the Cambro out! Transports well, no issues with spilling. Would purchase again.
    Love, love, love this product. Caterfater keeps ice cold for hous, we use it to keep green tea cold ib our concession trailer, never fails!
    For the last 18 years We've used containers from Carlisle Cambro and recently cater gater and it has proven to be wonderful! keeps coffee hot for hours and at a great price .
    This is amazing. It's big enough to hold the amount of beverages needed and it's not awkward shaped when packing up the truck. The hands free spout is exactly what we needed. The gasket on the top makes it a little tough to close but you just have to push it down a little harder to snap it shut. I'm actually buying another one right now.
    This is not just a 5-star review to be overlooked. Is CaterGator the solution to the Cambro price problem? If this product is any indication of what to expect, I will say YES! This works every bit (if not better) than the Cambro equivalent at a very reasonable price point. I was wondering why foam-core plastic was so expensive. Thank you CaterGator! Eventually I will try the CaterGator 16 3/4" x 24" x 25" Black Front Loading Insulated Food Pan Carrier and let you know if it is as awesome as it claims to be. So far I am impressed. Save a few bones and get this beverage dispenser. I have not yet tried it for hot drinks, but I bet that will work equally as well...
