K33997 - Cooks Essentials Chip & Dip Warmer w/Removable Heating Base
Bowl Too Small
Although it's a great design, the serving bowl is too small to serve a crowd. I purchased two of these and feel like I wasted my money. Too costly to return.
Love it! Mine came yesterday and is absolutely the perfect size for your holidays and anytime too. You can fill center which stays at the same temp to keep your holiday dips warm. There are so many good ones out there that we can't wait to start using it. Also, you can remove the tray from the heater and use for cold veggies with dip, or stick preztels with a raspberry honey mustard dip or chips and dip etc. Lots of uses.
Very pleased and what a price, can't beat it.
Ordered a second one!!
Perfect for me.. of course it is too small to feed an army but with well mannered guests it is just right. I ordered a second one just for the warmer, this can be used to keep my coffee cup warm.
GREAT PARTY ITEM!
I purchased this for my mother's 85th birthday. She loves it.
With all the things she can do with it, soap ring/candle in middle, warmer for her coffee mug, relish tray, dessert bar ...ideas are endless and the price was fab.
Also blue is her favorite color and when she called today she said it's beautiful!
Thanks QVC for once again making my life easier in gift giving and I think I might just have to get one of these to go with all my blue temp tations!
Really nice with great expectations
I ordered this as we love chips/dips. Everyone is speaking of the bowl being so small -- yes it is; but I don't use the heating element when I do veggies w/ranch dip, so this is perfect. When I want to use it for hot crab dip, I simply use a larger bowl with a 3" bottom and plug the electric in. This is so perfect for so our gatherings or simply sitting back and watching TV and "munching out". I've had this for a couple weeks and there hasn't been hardly a day we haven't used it for one thing or the other. Awesome buy!!
Love the look.
Sppedy delivery....just what I expected from QVC and Cook's Essentials.
Didnt live up to "dip warmer"
I love QVC, looked forward to receiving this before Christmas, which I did. Like the removal heating element. But the bowl is really too small to hold anything. I put cheese dip in it and it got really warm but the dip/cheese just one big ball. Hopefully it will work with other . I still may return it.
Could be better
Dip bowl is pretty small. Paint chipped after just one use. Not sure how long this will hold up. Warmer needs variable heat settings. This has just on/off. Spinach dip was cold on top but scalding on the bottom. Not worth cost to return.
Great Dip Warmer
The other review comments was that it is too small but I find that it is a very good size. When I have a get together I have other items on the table not just chips and dip and I find this size perfect not too big. But most importantly it keep dips hot and that is why I got it and I am very happy with this dip warmer. Plus you can't beat the price!
Does the job
I got the blue on clearance. It works fine but there are cosmetic problems with the cracker tray -- it's not finished/glazed properly on the side where the heater and dip bowl fit. The glaze imperfection is not visible when the item is in use and it doesn't affect its functionality. I am concerned about the rubber pads on the three feet of the cracker tray, since they are about 5/8" high and without them the cracker tray would not accommodate the heating element. Those rubber pads are lightly glued on and I already knocked one off and had to reglue it. That means also that you can't put the cracker tray into the dishwasher. However, I didn't pay much for the set, so it is good enough. The color is a good match to my blue and confetti Temptations Old World pieces. Also, I can use the heater element to warm jar candles or instead of a lit tea candle with scented "melters."
One Person Dish
I have a dilemma. The item is small and holds about enough to feed one person. I can't embarrass myself by using it or giving it as a gift. I thought about sending it back but the postage would just about pay for the cost of the dish.
Appetizers Football Season
With Football season around the corner, just think of how many app's you put out all day or evening. This Definitely comes in handy, the color is very nice in blue.
You get a heating base, take some other ceramic small bowls and just heat up on your warmer. Keep Stirring, Yes, It Gets Nice and Warm.
It's very cozy, and a nice little something to bring to a Monday night game with your dip and chips if you are invited, don't go empty handed, this will look beautiful for serving and the price is decent. Nice Idea.
