Customer questions about this product

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


Wow. I am so glad I bought this bad boy. It holds 4 1/3 size pans. It gets my soups up to 180 in about 30 minutes from frozen. It has a low water indicator. You don't lose a lot of steam when all four pans are in. Hope this helps

This Vollrath counter top steam table is great! Heats up quickly, holds temperature well, and being able to hold an third size pan is great!

Joseph S. from Duckies Bar And Grill on 05/12/2017

We love this heat n serve! So easy to operate. Keeps our food up to temp. Easy cleaning too. Would buy again in a heartbeat.

Shana D. from Hot Hogs BBQ on 04/12/2017

This is perfect for reheating food and keeping it warm. I bought 4 of the Choice 1/3 Size Standard Weight Anti-Jam Stainless Steel Steam Table / Hotel Pan - 6" Deep to fit inside and they fit perfectly.

Sumer O. from Sumer Ortiz on 01/26/2017

Love it. Very nicely made only problem is the cord doesnt come out the side its underneath, so you have to make sure you put a knife under it or anything. Lasts way longer than the cheap stainless steel ones.

I had been using the cheapest models available for awhile, after my 3rd well had broken I decided to pay more in hopes of better results. This well is much stronger, it can actually heat food to serving temp in a few hours if you have time. The main benefit I've seen over the cheaper brands is this well doesn't need anywhere close to as many refills because it seals the heat in better and heats the water more evenly, which really extends the life.

Timothy C. from Union St Diner on 02/18/2015

This product has a large range of temperatures so you can cook and hold, as well. We decided on this item over the one with a drain due to the lower profile. This does require more effort during cleaning so if you have the space get the one with a drain as it can be heavy when full of water.

Heidi G. from Deep Creek Coffee Co on 08/21/2014

really like this warmer and it doesnt take up as much room as you would think. it can hold up to 4 different types of products.
