I bought this for my food trailer. It is perfect and works great! The description was right on and it is the perfect size. It keeps everything to correct temperature too!

This is our first countertop cooker. We are using it to hold our beans and rice. It is working very well. This is an excellent value compared to many others of the same size. We expect it will last.

Michael Brau from DORADO TACOS II LLC

Heats up food quickly to temperature from cold holding so it spends minimum temperature in the danger zone. On higher settings you can even cook some foods to a degree like a large crock pot would. We primarily got this to get chilled foods up to temperature quickly and then turn down to hold for events.

This machine is great. It is priced very competitively. This unit can boil water, I love this feature. If you are just looking for a basic water table to hot hold soup, there is another model that is cheaper.

Perfect for special events when you need more warmers than you have. Great for private events too. Perfectly fits on counters and buffets and keeps the temp to health department standards.

The cooker warmer is a good addition my warmers. I can get more heat to reheat to temp. and then keep warm for long periods.

Very nice product, and great price! Use every single day, usually in high setting. So good, purchased a second. I did purchase a liner for second, only because my use is a little harder then food uses.

Warms fast under 30 min, keeps temp! It's a great warmer for any small business, size is compact and the price is the best I could find! Only thing that would be better is if it came with the top!

Been using this regularly as both a warmer and cooker. Heats an entire pan of foil wrapped bean burritos to 140+ in about 20 minutes and keeps them very hot. High wattage however (1500w), so it sometimes trips the GFCI outlet or even the breaker if there is no GFCI. It also does not have a temperature dial, just goes from low to high so regulating temp is tricky.

Stephen Baron from
Posted on 6/29/2018 12:00:00 AM

Had one when I bought my restaurant and it was amazing. Heats up so quickly. Much better than the brand I had when I bought my restaurant

We have two of these countertop food cookers and love them. We use them to house our metal 1/3 pans. The food cookers keep our peppers, thin potatoes and hot dogs warm. High recommend them.

this is a nifty machine and what makes it unique from others is it goes up to boiling temperature. I am able to make all kinds of things using it as a double boiler. it takes a bit of time to hear up though.

Robert Oatley from Cinn City Bakery, LLC.

This countertop food cooker works great as a cooker or a warmer. We start our tomato bisque off in this every morning. Make sure you don't run out of water in the basin as this is a lightweight product and will self destruct quickly. Lesson learned - I hope.

Perfection! Holds our hot beans at consistent temp. No burning or drying out. Even good to transport to events. I've only had rave reviews since I've added it to my kitchen.

Julius Howell from Peak BBQ

This is my first time using a cooker/warmer, and I can honestly say that I can't believe I waited so long! I wanted to use it for dyeing yarn/fiber and am so happy I bought it! This cooker is absolutely amazing... I have so much control over where I put my colors with it. It heats up very quickly and stays hot long after being turned off.

Fantastic warmer heats up quickly and keeps a very consistent temp. We actually use this in another business we own that is a candle company to melt wax in bulk without spending much more on a wax melter.

Ak83llc from Naman Modi
Posted on 3/9/2020 12:00:00 AM

A totally awesome warmer. Of all of our equipment, we probably use this the most. Great for serving at events or for keeping pans of food hot at the shop until you need it on the line (we have a fast casual restaurant). The only problem we've encountered using these is that if you have two warmers and plug them into the same circuit, there is a possibility that circuit could blow and need to be reset. Other than that, no problems with this product!

Ronald P Gillespie from

The Avantco cooker/warmer is a great option for heating meat that you have pre cooked to get it to safe temperature quickly and serve your customers the best product . It has plenty of room

A 1500 watt Hi power unit is excellent choice. I use this for my soups. I check the water level on it and I have not had to add any during the day when I am open. But it is a good idea to check it. I love the price of this unit it was able to let me expand my menu.

Really surprised with this unit for the price! replaced another apw that wasn't a cooker. only knock on it is that you can't see where it is set at without bending over in front of it because the #s are on the bottom of the dial. Will but again

This full size electric counter-top food cooker/warmer arrived quickly and safely from Webstruantstore.com. The nice thing about this specific warmer is that it heats up very quickly!

Justin Naecker from Mustang Alley's
Posted on 12/3/2017 12:00:00 AM

This warmer is great! The fact that it cooks is such a nice bonus. I can throw some hot dogs in and not have to worry about them until a customer is ready for one. It brings them to temperature and keeps them there. It also heats up fairly quickly. I do wish it had a drain for the water, but it’s not that big of a deal to just dump water out; it’s very light. I would absolutely purchase it again.

Sharon from Macaroni Zamboni
Posted on 12/27/2019 12:00:00 AM

The Avantco 1500W Cooker/Warmer has been great for our yarn dyeing business. It produces a nice even heating. If it got up to temperature a little bit faster it would get a full 5 stars. Plus it has a bit of a wobble to it. For yarn dyeing purposes that isn't a deal breaker. We will definitely look to purchase a few more of these in the future.

Jeffrey Suho from
Posted on 12/26/2020 12:00:00 AM

Great for keeping food warm for quick service. Easy to clean. Ours did burn out after six months,so we ended up switching to the 1200W. both are great.

Carrie Brown from Jimtown Store
Posted on 12/16/2017 12:00:00 AM

We love the versatility of the the cooker/warmer option. We have used this for keeping foods warm on the prep table for fast dish up for our daily specials. I would like to see if there is an option for 1/3 or even 1/4 size pans to even increase the versatility. Clean up is very easy. Cost is extremely affordable even with shipping compared to other sources.

One of our older steam tables broke and we were looking for a new and inexpensive one for our diner. This was the perfect find. It arrived quickly, was super easy to set up, and was in pristine condition. It heats up fast and works great! We use it every day!

This electric food cooker we use to poach our eggs for breakfast. It gets hit enough to cook eggs. We add a little vinegar to the hot water and let the eggs cook. Makes it easy to kick out benedicts on a busy sunday brunch

This warmer is very functional. Only complaint is that the range or heating seams to be very inconsistent. 10-8 is a wide temperature range while 7-0 is almost none.

I ordered this as a spare warmer, but it works so well I used it every day. This get HOT so watch the temp so you don't burn the soup.

These are a good price compared to others I've seen in stores. They look very nice and have been keeping our food hot. The only downside is that when the heat setting is at zero, the light stays on. You have to unplug it in order to turn the thing completely off.

I was just at a food manager's health code class. The instructor discussed rapid heating of soups. He cautioned against just the warmer and he suggested microwaving soups OR buying one of these that rapidly heats soups, then you turn it down to the proper holding temp. The price was right, it fits our space. We could not be happier with it.

Katrina Campbell from Big Eddy's Deck Bar
Posted on 10/22/2016 12:00:00 AM

This warmer is great. For those days when we are busier or want to add items on the line, this warmer is perfect. When it says cook, it means cook. We cooked a ham in it.

Edwin Simpson from Shirley Maes Cafe

Excellent warmer. My only mistake was not confirming if our electrical panel was able to support 3 warmers. It is not. Fuse kept blowing, we can only use one at a time. Please note these are 1500 watts each!

Diane Lartey from SOD

Must have in a kitchen for hot holding sides, sauces and the like during busy service. most of these warmers in general work good and since they have a set shelf life under heavy use, this a very good budget friendly model.

Payables from Dallas Gun Club
Posted on 1/23/2021 12:00:00 AM

Good warmer, but the light remains on when the knob is turned all the way off. This causes us to check on it needlessly. I'd change that.

I used the Avantco cooker/warmer for a Catering to heat up both sausage links and brisket out on a golf course and they worked great for me. I heat entire 8qt pan with no problems at all, also keeps the food at a safe serving temperature. I would recommend the Avantco full size countertop food cooker and warmer for anyone looking for a great product. I used two warmers all day with no problems.
