Excellent product at a great price!
on June 3, 2012
I was a little leery of getting this product at first because of the lack of Amazon reviews and one of them not being very good. That being said I am very happy I took a risk and bought this product after reading almost 70 positive reviews for the same product on the Khol's website. This buffet server arrived with my amazon prime in two day's time with absolutely no imperfections. The ceramic containers hold a LOT of food; I have used the item twice for parties of 40 plus people (with food left over). I used it to keep chicken and beef warm (each container holds about 4 pounds of fajitas) and the third container held a lot of rice and beans. The individual knobs to keep food warm are wonderful, they have three levels of heat. The food is warmed quickly on the hottest level and food keeps warm without a problem; I have not had any food burn and the food was kept warm for about four hours. People commented on the functionality and attractiveness of the product and I cannot help but gush about what a great bargain this item is; the cost is minimal really if you consider how much time and effort it saves you when entertaining; just put the food in it and walk away. There are no worries about serving your guests cold food anymore. Love the glass lids, no, they do not seal tightly but when people are serving themselves the lids are pretty much off anyway. Love that you can just store the food in the ceramic lidded containers in the fridge after the party. They wash very, very easily and food comes right off. The electrical cord is on the shorter end definitely but if you place it by a plug it is not an issue. All in all I am extremely happy with the product and really glad I bought it. This would be a great gift for anyone who does any sort of entertaining. The box is indeed a bit big and on the heavier side, it is about three feet long and I am guessing in the twenty something pound range.
