Customer questions about this product

Do I need to add water to this warmer to use it?
Yes, you do. We do not recommend running warmers like these without water, as you will run the risk of burning out your element or scorching your food.
What is the difference between the direct contact heating system and other warmer heating systems?
Direct contact heating encourages more efficient heat transfer because the heating element is in direct contact with the water in the well. This type of heating not only saves energy, but eliminates the need for vents to be cut into the sides of the warmer for excess heat to escape. However, many warmers on the market have the heating element located beneath the well, which causes heat to be lost into the sides and bottom of the unit and vents must be cut into the sides of the warmer to allow this excess heat to escape.

Customer Reviews


This warmer has been great. It feels quality built and is easy to clean. My last warmer shorted out within a few months. So far I am very impressed.

I purchased this item as I needed to use an NSF-approved "crock pot" type device per my food inspection report to warm/prepare sandwich items. I wish I would have reviewed information further to purchase the warmer, the insert, and the lid as a set (I have tried to find this item online on the website, but cannot find it). I ordered just the warmer and the insert initially, and because I didn't order the set, I didn't have an appropriate lid to go with it. This website sells the lids seperately, but you have to order a CASE (read 6 count) of them since they're drop-shipped from the manufacturer. I do like this warmer, and you don't need a lot of water to get it to work appropriately. I don't like that you have to either be savvy enough to just need on of the Read More

This has worked great for us for two years however it is no longer working. While working it warned up quick and melted our dipping chocolate rally fast.

Mohit M. from Cold Stone Creamery on 05/23/2015

We love this kettle! It heats up fast. Is small and clean looking. It's inconspicuous on our back counter making it ideal in a small coffee shop full of stuff. And it's NSF certified. We had a point taken off our health inspection for having a non-NSF certified item. So now we're extra cautious!

Audrie B. from Odd's Cafe on 10/01/2014

This is the soup warmer (rethermalizer) I should have order in the first place. This is a powerful soup warmer that will take your 38? soup and warm it to 165 in an hour or less. Well within the 2 hour health code limit. Very powerful, very fast, and small. It uses the standard 7QT inserts I have grown up using. I can not recommend this stand alone, workhorse unit enough. I am thinking about buying a second one, just in case.

Mike K. from Cooper's On 5Th on 10/25/2013

I have two different brand soup servers. The Volrath heats up much quicker than the other brand and keeps the product at a nice hot temp.

Donna B. from BURGO BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION, on 01/16/2013

This unit is perfect for keeping sauce hot all day. We use it to save space in the steaming unit. It is like a portable steam unit.

Randall S. from Sbarro Pizzeria on 11/04/2012

We use this in our service station for Chili. Works great and fits our current NFS containers! Great buy for such a great value and its small enough that it doesnt take up much counter space.

Michael F. from Amish Market Square on 02/17/2012

This warmer is great for soups. I tried other warmers but they were too large for my tiny kitchen. This particular warmer is approx. 12 inches in diameter and fits perfectly in the small space I had. Keeps hot soup at proper serving temperature with very little maintenance. Just fill the unit to the line, place the bain marie of hot soup in, put the lid on it and you've got perfect soup all day long. I highly recommend this product.
