These fry warmers work great! They keep the flies nice and hot. You can also use them for other things as well if you choose to. They do exactly what they say

You can not go wrong with this great product the Avantco FFDS-1 Freestanding Infrared French Fry Warmer / Dump Station - 1000W, 120V , The brand is famous and a top product

This item replaced the old fashioned heat lamp with bulbs. The bulbs burned out very fast and added to the operating cost quickly. This Avantco warmer is excellent. Plenty of heat. The one and only issue I have is that the top leans downward a bit making it look a little cheap. So far, no problems with it.

Probably one of the better purchases that I got from Webstaurantstore. Keep your fries at a good temp while everything is finishing up. Has two forms of heat which I pretty much keep both on at all times. Doesn't take up too much space. If you are frying a lot one of these is a necessity. About to purchase a 2nd or a 3rd to maximize our space and efficiency.

Can hold lots of fries and food warm for a long time. Keeps the freshness in your food items and does not leave a lot of oil. Keeps food crisp as well.

Great fry warmer for the price. Keeps some of our fried items warm and crisp. I would say it keeps food crispy for about 10-15 minutes before needing attention.

The Avantco FFDS-1 freestanding French fry warmer/dump station is a great price. The infrared lamp does the job better than a heat lamp bulb. It would be a good idea to order a full size stainless steels pan with holes to drain the grease.

This French Fry 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

I love this. It gets warm fast and keeps everything at a nice temperature. Some things that you don’t want dried out should be covered. I used it for pretzels, popcorn and breakfast. I thought it was going be small but it’s a perfect size for my house.

Although it is not one of the best in the market ,Do not wait any longer, if you are looking for a Freestanding Infrared French Fry Warmer, I would recommend this equipment, very good as it warms and maintains the temperature, besides being very comfortable for cleaning.

Avantco FFDS-1 Freestanding Infrared French Fry Warmer / Dump Station - 1000W, 120V, is working great so far! It had a little assembly required, but was very easy to put together and seems sturdy now. It came with a 2" deep base pan, I liked that I didn't have to purchase that separately!

Mechell Mayhew from Flip Flop Burgers

I love this heat lamp. It is narrow enough to sit on a small shelf but large enough to hold lots of food. Heats up fast!

Was looking for a small warmer to keep Fries warm after cooking them!! This product gets the job done and looks nice in the kitchen!! Was a fraction of the price of other warmers and works just as good

Works great used for Saint Patricks day lunch to keep the French fries nice hot and crisp. Very simple to use and did its job perfectly.

This warmer has lasted longer than previous ones. The flat heating element works much better than the hanging bulb. It allows for better eyesight of the product and more space to work around.

This warmer works perfect in our concession trailer by keeping our fries and pretels at a great temperature. It is a perfect size for what we were needing.

Great for use in the back-of-the house. The sturdy design gives it great stability during those busy lunch and dinner rushes. Keeps food very hot during service as well as well lit from the bright light. Light enough to move around during cleaning times and easy to clean.

We have been using this for well over two years to keep the fries hot. Never had an issue. No bulbs to burn out. Easy to put together. Definitely prefer this to the inexpensive heat lamps with bulbs.

Dennis Cheplick from Ellie Lous Brew & Bbq

This gets more use as a dump station than a warmer in my kitchen. It holds a huge amount of fries at once and will easily hold the contents of a 17" fryer basket. The longest our fries are held after coming out of the fryer is no more than 3-4 minutes. The warmer keeps the fries hot until served. A solid piece of equipment for your kitchen. Overall, I would purchase this again if needed. I use

Thomas Fisher from Lola's Coastal Cafe

What a great value. We added this to our restaurant and it is a huge help keeping things hot so all of the food goes out hot together. Has to be assembled but not hard if you have a drill.

Works perfectly when we use it. We generally do our fries on demand but when we do use this, it sits for a very short period of time.

So far so good. Only been using it for several weeks. Wish it put out a little more heat, but is working great so far.

Highly recommend! This warmer takes up little space and allows our chef to keep the food warm while waiting for the rest of a customer’s order to be ready.

Great item. We use the french fry warmer daily and it hasn't disappointed us. It will keep your fries hot in a bowl or hotel pan.

The Avantco FFDS-1 Fry Warmer/Dump Station is a very economical pieec of equipment which can serve a variety of uses and offers a relatively small footprint.

Food warming makes it nice to not waste food. I can now prolong the life of my fries for a bit longer. Increasing hold times are important for food waste.

These are great warming stations for our french fries and other fried goods. The heat on these are very impressive. The price is super compared to similar items out there. Have purchased many of these.

i bought this product for using in hotel breakfast station got warming biscuits. It is Very easy to Assemble product with all information and instruments included and it is very useful for commercial use

Posted on 11/20/2018 12:00:00 AM

Warmer is a very good value and seems to be working perfectly fine. The build quality is very decent...except, the top warmer part of the unit sits very crooked. Nothing is bent or damaged and I have disassembled and re assembled to make sure we had put it together correctly and it just seems to be made like that.

We make our own spiral cut fries and this warmer insures that they are always hot and crisp. cant go wrong with one of these

I’ve had this for about a year now, and it does the job great for when you get busy and need to hold some tots/fries, etc. Perfect for a medium volume eatery like ours.

Tracy Flitcraft from Yummvees

I bought this to help with keeping my take out orders warm and French fries. It takes a little time to warm up and really didn't stand up to my demands.

This infrared French fry warmer/dump station works great. It keeps the fries really warm without putting out a lot of unnecessary heat. A much needed item in a hot kitchen.

This unit is miles above any bulb unit you'll ever own. We had one of the twin bulbs, and although they are good, they don't last as long or put out the same amount of heat.

This warmer does a great job holding my fried products for a few minutes at a time. It throws some pretty good heat, and it has a separate on-off switch for the heat lamp and the light
