Five Best Food Warmers

Updated on November 4, 2010

There are so many gatherings that we want to celebrate. From birthdays, Christmas and other special family gatherings and reunions to just enjoying an afternoon with friends and family. Along with our love to celebrate is our love to cook special meals for our loved ones - at least it is for me.

We cannot just put these foods in a plastic container for serving if it is a special occasion because first, it does not keep the food warm, and second it is not pleasing to the eye. Presentation is importation for a lot of people and using a good food warmer will help with that.

A good one should do more than just look good - it need to be practical also It should keep the food warm for at least several hours. After much experimentation, these are the best on the market and I have included a range of different styles to suit anyone. To a certain extent, which warmer will suit depends on the type of foods being kept warm.
