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.
- What is a rethermalizer / rethermalization?
- Rethermalization is the process by which pre-cooked, chilled or frozen food is brought to serving temperatures safely and efficiently. Rethermalizers are not meant to cook raw food, but they can act as a food warmer to keep food hot for extended periods of time after bringing it up to the proper temperature. It's important to note that not all food warmers are capable of rethermalization.

People Talk About:warmer soup great small unit hot lid counter needed fast
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 three components or know what the full "set" is called on the website. I will say that I did use the chat feature of the online help to determine which lid I needed for this, and they were very helpful.

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 Posted 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!

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.

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, Posted 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.

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.

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.
