Works great. I elected to use my own aluminum storage servers instead of the ones that come with the unit (the ones that come with are kinda small). Although you can still use the lids that it comes with if you get the right size bins. Used it for my Super Bowl party and it kept tons of wings, potstickers, and pigs in blankets nice and warm. Great value. Heck, I may even buy another one before our next party to double our warm food capacity.
This was flimsy and for the money I expected a more study contruction. It kept the food warm for a party all day but afterwards I noticed that one of the lids cracked and seemed to split from the heat.

I never seen such a poor design buffet server in my life. It did stay lever, all legs are uneven. The lid of the tray will fall because the clip can't be fasted. Therefore, entire server keep whobbling. I could not use it at all. I need to return it.
Received this yesterday, and tried it last night. When I first opened it, I wondered if it had been used as it seemed rather spotty and gritty. I washed everything, and agree that the plastic lids are scuffed up - glass would be better. Seemed to heat up well, and if you can get over it not looking pristine from the box, well worth it for entertaining!
I bought this for my daughter last Christmas and we used it for Thanksgiving this year. I thought I needed one for Christmas dinner, so I ordered this one. We used it and it worked great. Kept the food warm. My problem with it is that the plastic covers were scuffed when I took them out of the box. Not pretty. If they had been glass, I could have washed them in the dishwasher and wouldn't have had to be so careful with them around the things I was cooking. Also glass lids could go into the oven.
I like this warmer/server for buffets/parties. It's a great product for the price.

Had an open house for Thanksgiving-was concerned about people coming and going and keeping the dinner warm. Had seen trio of slow cookers but that's not what I needed. Saw this and it worked perfectly. Kept gravy, and two side vegetables nice and warm without burning. Can't wait to use it again for another open house.

I have always wanted a warmer. I was tired of food getting cold when I had big crowds over for dinner. This was perfect! Doesn't over heat and keeps foods perfect! Easy to clean

I was very impressed with how warm the food stayed. I used it at a breakfast we held in my community outside on a rainy day (sheltered of course) just be sure that the heating element is not on the table LOL. At first it was upside down and still heated the food I might add. Once we corrected the problem even the waffles stayed crisp and warm. The pans look small but hold more than you'd think they do. Everyone was very pleased with the purchase and we are looking forward to using them again for our holiday dinners.
Bought it a couple of years ago and have used it many times since. VERY HANDY for parties, large family gatherings and Holiday dinners. Attractive presentation. Easy to clean, use and store. Bought my daughter one as a gift. She loves it!
This purchase looks good with stainless steel and black kitech appliances. But, it also looks elegant anywhere I use it. The knob wasn't difficult to manuver and it's not heavy!! I really like the opening for the serving utensil. The covers are not glass but I needed the plastic covers because they are light weight. The temperature ia just right for keeping items warm without constant adjusting.
This Buffet Warmer was a great addition for our holiday entertainment. It kept all the food warm without having to use tons of serving dishes. We found it easy to use and clean. It has the added benefit that the tray keeps the appetizers warm. An extra perk is it is very nice looking. This one is ideal for side dishes or a small dinner party. We used it for Thanksgiving as our second buffet warner and had hot food all day.
