Apologies in advance for the long review but I hope it's helpful. I love this product and wish I had bought it a long time ago!

The server is very well made, looks nice, and works perfectly. I love that it's flexible enough to use it as a flat tray, or add the frame and 1, 2, or 3 of the containers. They hold quite a bit of food, too. I didn't measure out 2.5 quarts before I made the purchase so I wasn't sure what to expect, but the size is perfect for either a meal for probably at least 15 people, or snacks for a large party. Of course you can also serve less by either putting less into the containers that come with the server, or removing the containers that come with it and serving smaller portions in foil pans on the warming tray. (I use mini loaf pans for small portions).

I put this server to an extreme test for its first use when I prepared all of the meals for a 12-person race crew in a 25 hour endurance road race. I cooked all the food ahead of time (important note: do not use this product to COOK the food, it won't get hot enough to be safe). Then I used this server to reheat and serve hot food to the drivers/crew around the clock. Saturday lunch we had pork sandwiches with one metal container holding the BBQ pork, with the remainder of the tray warming the buns. Sunday dinner we had a Mexican buffet and this server was fantastic. First I used the tray alone with tamales and tortillas wrapped in foil until they were hot. Then I put the 2.5 quart containers on to heat - one held about 3 lbs. of beef taco meat (probably could have held at least 5 lbs), another held 5 lbs. of shredded chicken, and in the third I put half refried beans and half rice.

The Waring Pro Professional Buffet Server looks great, is very well made, and works exactly as I would expect "professional" equipment to perform. We bought 4 of these units directly from Waring for use when hosting events requiring food at our small business, but also use them 1 or 2 at a time when we have family gatherings or parties.

I really like that the unit is modular, it can be used as a standalone griddle or with the "frame" to hold 1 to 3 of the individual 2.5 quart serving sections. Each of the serving sections also comes with a see-through polycarbonate cover with a slot to accommodate a serving utensil, my only observation is that the covers do tend to get fogged up fairly easily but not sure there is anything that could be done about that though.

A really solid piece of food service equipment! Highly Recommended!

I purchased the Waring Pro Buffet Server and Warming Tray in anticipation of Thanksgiving this year. It is very well made and a high-end looking appliance. I compared similar buffet servers in several stores, and none seemed as well made as this one. I used the buffet server for vegetables (mashed potatoes, corn, green beans) and everything stayed warm and appetizing. The server made an attractive addition to the buffet serving line, and I wasn't worried about the food staying at a safe serving temperature. The clear lids for each pan made it easy for guests to see the food, while helping to hold in heat. Cleanup was easy and I'm looking forward to using the server at Christmas! One issue some people may have is the size of the unit; it is large and will take up a significant amount of storage space, so keep this in mind if you have limited storage ability.

I own 2 of these units. The quality is excellent, and these units/buffet servers are just outstanding for serving any size group of individuals. From a few family members, to a house full of guests, it makes your entertaining so much easier. I use to have the formal dinner parties, all the food was brought to the table. The platters, the bowls etc. I was exhausted, by the time I sat down at the table to eat, just from running back and forth to the kitchen.

I still have my formal dinners. However, No more running back and forth from the dining room to the kitchen. The units are set up on my kitchen island, along with the dinner plates, I fill the serving vessels and I'm done. I don't miss the running back and forth, and I sure don't miss all the additional clutter of serving dishes and food platters, taking up space on my dining room table. I even purchased the optional 1/2 size pans for my units. allows for even more versatility.

I bought this warming tray for a party at my house. It did a very good job keeping three separate dishes warm over the course of several hours. It was a much better solution then sterno cans and trays.

I bought 2 of these for a party for my husband. I LOVE it! The food stayed warm for 6 hours. The very dry food stuck a little to the bottom, but then it was also the only food I put in the warmer while still hot. Everything pretty much went into the warmers cold or almost cold because I cooked everything set it aside and then dished all at once. That may address the drying out and burning mentioned by a previous reviewer. So I loved that the cold food actually got warmed up and stayed warm for such a long time. I highly recommend this warmer/server. It looks sleek and professional without giving the set up a school cafeteria look. The lids are also a lot sturdier than another product I had bought and subsequently returned, the Maxi-Matic EWM-6171 Elite Platinum 3-Tray 2-1/2-Quart Buffet Server. Another great product by Waring.

Edited to add:
The lids, while better than the Maxi-Matic ones, were still disappointing. I have to handle them with care because they crack very easily. I have had this for a number of years now and it still works wonderfully. I just wish the lids wouldnt crack so easliy. This is why I have reduced my rating to a 4.
