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

Keeps the food hot hot hot. Easy to use, easy to clean. A really good value for the price, and doesn't take up too much 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.

This is not just a warmer, it’s a Cooker too! So you can get the water boiling in the unit. 1500W is fast and really heat up everything in few minutes.

This is a great food warmer. Reheats quickly and holds temp all day long. Easy to clean and easy to move around when needed. Thanks

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.

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.

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.

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.

we bought this warmer a little over 4 months ago and is still going strong. We use it every day to heat and maintain our food ready to serve.

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!

I am very pleased with this warmer! I have used it for 2 years now in my food truck and it has never let me down.

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.

These are great so far. Inexpensive and they can get really hot really fast. We use them to reheat soups before lunch service and to hot hold all kinds of foods effectively

WE use these for our soups and chili, they work really well and fit nicely on our counters in the kitchen! the temp is easy to control and they do not burn things.

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

Does the job fine, warms everything appropriately However we do have issues with the elements burning out sometimes, where we have to restart them/replace them. Otherwise it preforms well.

We purchased this item, along with 3 inserts/containers. They kept our rice and grains warm throughout the day. Great quality and durable piece of equipment!

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

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.

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!

Product worked great - we used it for our daughter's graduation party. It kept the food warm and didn't dry anything out. It was also easy to clean up afterwards.

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 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.

Posted on 9/8/2018

The first one we received was damaged and worked for only a day or so we called customer service ,they were great and sent the replacement within a day. It's been working fine for the last two months.
