I bought this to keep my chocolate tempered. it keeps the temperature perfectly once you've figured out which dial is the correct setting for you.

The Avantco Warmer works perfect. It is very easy to clean and keeps soups warm. The lid fits very well and allows for easy transport.

We purchased this warmer for our new line of soups. It has exceeded our expectations. We initially set the temp to "4" setting and it kept the soup at a perfectly hot without scorching one's tongue temperature.

We use this for chili, soup and other food items (and even as a "hot water bath" for sauces we want to keep warm!). We have used these for a long time and have never had any heating issues, etc... Great item.

Our warmer died after many years of operation. I needed to replace it, so I ordered this and use it for our mac and cheese.

Posted on 9/1/2016 12:00:00 AM

A+++ item as described. We use these to store warm quinoa that gets put in salads and grain bowls. This is a larger-sized item so take note of the dimensions.

Posted on 8/31/2018 12:00:00 AM

This is a good warmer. Nice size. Use it for soups and gravies. Temperature controls are around the back next to the plug, and there are no indicator lights to let you know the unit is in. But other than those minor criticisms it works well.

This soup warmer is great, it maintains soup at a great temperature and it is very easy to clean. We have 3 of these already and they have lasted over 5 years of heavy use.

These are great for keeping our quinoa warm. However, the handle part broke off recently after less than three months use. Still, effective at keeping food hot all day.

Super kettle warmer at a discount. Avantco does it again with this stainless steel kettle warmer. Quality that matches the other name brands but at a fraction of the price. Definitely recommended.

Jacob Litt from NFQ
Posted on 6/7/2016 12:00:00 AM

We have a couple of these warmers and they work well. The water under the pot helps to evenly heat the contents. The stainless finish looks nice.

Becky Fiebig from Stacks Market
Posted on 6/29/2012 12:00:00 AM

There are numbers on the dial 1-6. I wish there could be some sort of temperature listed instead, just to help give a general idea, without the guesswork. It is a sturdy machine, looks nice and doesn't take up more room than it should

Dawna Bass from Rainbow Juices
Posted on 6/27/2017 12:00:00 AM

Great warmer for the price! Have purchased two of these for different locations... Have held up well to daily prolonged use. Definitely would recommend this product, and the price is much lower than comparable warmers.

I am so glad I got this Avantco countertop food warmer instead of those big brand ones. It costs a lot less but it works as the same!!! Every part is stainless steel so nothing rusted even we have water in the warmer all the time. Very easy to clean. Wash the pot and wipe the warmer inside and out.

A. N Alderazi from
Posted on 6/21/2012 12:00:00 AM

Good value here. If properly maintained these units are very solid. We hold soups all day in these 6 days a week and they last at least 1-2 years. I've considered more expensive units that last longer, but I don't think the investment is worth it. Those units are typically 3x's as expensive.

Mike Edwards from Johnstown Lunch Box
Posted on 6/17/2019 12:00:00 AM

This soup kettle warmer is very helpful specially in buffets, we like that it works great and because of it's size, it can easily be positioned just about anywhere. It is of great quality and we highly recommend it.

Posted on 6/17/2016 12:00:00 AM

Have been using it to keep things as warm as possibly while stirring and serving. It goes for hours and has not given an issue. It's so ready to use. Gets warm in no time. Very easy to clean. I will be getting another one. I actually wish it came larger by Avantco. Also like the sleek stainless look.

God I love this product! I put melted queso cheese and baked beans inside for our customers to serve during our lunch and dinner rush that way I don't have to keep everything on the stove and its wonderful! Would definitely buy again.

Jordanne Calvin from Voodoo Smokehouse
Posted on 5/21/2018 12:00:00 AM

These soup warmers are great! The water chamber is one complete piece so that the heating element is not exposed to water. We have switched all of our warmers over to this brand. We have been using them every day for over 1 year with no problems. A LOT cheaper than other brands earns the 5 stars.

Ordered my first Avantco warmer in 2013 and worked great until it stopped working in March 2016. I ordered a replacement and very dissapointed that it stopped working today May 14, 2016. I have contact the Webstaurant about the 6 month warranty, so we will see how this is handled. Very dissapointed in the second unit. This could be a fluke, so we will see what happens with the warranty.

I use this for clam Chowder So the servers can get there on Bowls. This unit keeps chowder hot and DOES NOT stick or burn on the bottom. I recommend

Lisa Robinson from Millie's Tavern
Posted on 5/10/2017 12:00:00 AM

We use this product daily for lunch and dinner service. Works great. Soup is kept to temp and as long as it is used as directed, soup doesn't burn or separate. Worth it!

June Lupiani from

Great little unit. Holds lots of liquid and takes up only a little bit of counter space. Doesn't draw a lot of power so very good in a small setting

I needed a solution for my dining room to serve some hot sauces on special occasions. We use this electric warmer mostly for hot fudge on Ice Cream Sundae nights and it performs flawlessly. Easy to clean and provides a good steady heat.

I ordered two of these without knowing what they would be like. They are great to work with and easy to clean. I then bought the smaller model since this worked so well.

Debbi Cameron from Ladies Of The Dukes Restaurant
Posted on 4/13/2015 12:00:00 AM

Great soup warmer at a fantastic price, especially considering it comes with insert. In my opinion, it has a much better design than the volrath equivalent: easier to clean since the element is below the water well, and doesn't boil water out all over your counter when you turn it up all the way. Also, doesn't need a gasket at the bottom of the well, so one less thing to go wrong.

Matthew Starkie Kreuder from South Street Cafe

Purchased two of these warmers in Sept. 2013. One still works great but the other has stopped keeping product warm. Was hoping to get more life out of it than this. Unfortunately there is only a six month warranty.

Ive used higher end brands and as with my 7 quart warmer I was shocked as to how hot these get. Avantco really is a value for the price and quality. Ive only had a year or so but the Nemco I had in the past didn't make it that long one time.

Jamie Bahr from Barre Country Diner
Posted on 2/20/2019 12:00:00 AM

Nice enough soup pot except the weld that holds the hinge on the lid is very poor, it separated within a week of not very heavy use. I am in Alaska and am not going to try to warranty it, will probably ask a local welder to tack it. Going to upgrade for the other 3 Pots I need to buy.

This soup warmer serves its purpose. Its easy to clean and looks nice. Its pretty big. I recommend bringing your soup to the temp you want before placing it in the warmer. It takes it a while to warm things up.

Excellent soup solution for great low price! We have had this product for only about a month, but so far I must say it does it's job while taking up a rather small amount of space which is a big plus.

I love this soup warmer!!! During the holidays we always have family over at our house and I usually make my famous chicken and rice soup and it is a hassle having everyone come to the stove to grab a bowl so this year I got one of these and I couldn't be happier! It keeps my soup at just the right temperature. And it is out of the way and doesn't take up that much counter-space. very pleased!
