K19937 - Cook's Essentials 18 oz. Ceramic Gravy Warmer
I just got the gravy warmer yesterday. I did what one person had suggested putting hot water in the gravy bowel, to warm it. I did this and the water stayed warm enough for a couple of hours. I'm going to keep this one.
I bought this for my Mother-In-Law last year and she loved it. We used it at Christmas and it worked great. It kept the gravy nice and warm all through supper.
You absolutely have to PRE-warm the gravy container or the warmer will not get hot enough to maintain the warmth of your gravy. This unit needs to get hotter to keep the gravy warmer/hotter. It also would work better I think if the container for the gravy had a lid that would hold the heat in as well. It was an ok concept but it wasn't executed very well. I would have sent this back but since I only paid the clearance price, if I had sent it back, the shipping would have been half of the price of what I paid for this. Wasn't worth returning since I paid so little for it.
I turn the base on and add hot water from the tap to the boat about 10-15 minutes before I add my gravy or sauce. My son bought this for me because he wanted the gravy to stay hot - holds 2 cups and works great!
I JUST USED 2 I HAVE OVER WEEKEND WORKS PERFECT
I had purchased 2 of the Gravy Warmer's last time we were at the QVC Store, thinking I would have them for the holidays. Well did they come in hand. I had alot of family over the past weekend for a holiday party, I did a buffet and everyone commented on how nice and hot the Gravy stayed. I am so glad I bought them. Tey worked great. Just remember you need a plug outlet for them. A total homerun, a Must have if you have party's and big family dinners.
I bought this to use for Thanksgiving and I couldn't be more pleased. I made sure that the unit was preheated, and I put very hot gravy into the server. It stayed warm all through dinner. I'll be using it again for Christmas. This item is well worth the money and I recommend it.
This gravy server keeps the gray nice and warm, but I use it most of the time without the warmer. It is a very nice piece.
Beautiful and Functional
I love this set. The gravy boat is so pretty it can be used with or without the heating element. I can't wait to use it on Thanksgiving.
Great for Butter
I used this at Christmas last year and I thought that it didn't keep the gravy all that warm. However, I found an even better use for it: it is great for keeping melted butter warm. I like to make crab legs, and it was always a challenge keeping the melted butter warm. This worked great. So, I will definitely use this for melted butter and am happy I have it. I'll probably use it in the future for gravy too, but I suspect I might have to microwave the gravy a bit if it stays out too long. Hey, for the price, it certainly is worth it in my book because I make crab legs a lot more than I make a turkey :)
Keeps gravy warm
I loved the idea of this product and had to order it when I saw it presented. Used it for Thanksgiving and Christmas and it was nice to have our gravy stay warm for a change. Not cold 5 minutes after you take it off the stove. No, your gravy won't be kept hot, but it will be warm when you come back for seconds.
I Love This Warmer
Pleasantly surprised. Holds a lot of gravy and kept it warmer all through Thanksgiving dinner. Use a lot for butter. Put butter in, go do some work, come back and make my popcorn. Keeps butter warm without burning it so I don't need to worry if what I am doing takes longer than expected before I go back to it. Good job.
Bought this and used it for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. Gravy stayed warm until we needed it.
