    Does anyone have any recommendations for portable pizza warmers? We currently have two ancient plug in warmer boxes by Wittco that are starting to not be reliable. We lend them out to customers for fundraising events so they have something other than pizza bags to put the pizzas in. Here is what our current ones look like [​IMG]

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Used to use the same but with a Sterno fuel cup, but haven't used them for 15+ years.
    You can get similar but they are just an insulated box with a cover.
    Well insulated and they work well for events, ballgames, etc but no heat source- how long are you looking for heat retention?
    The insulated are what I used as a Domino's for the past 15 years.
    They (mine, anyway) held 5 pies and they were pretty impressive.

    We're looking to keep them warm/hot for around 4-5 hours. Where would you find the insulated boxes?

    Well, 4-5 will be tough w/ what I used.
    I think, ultimately, nothing will work for that time period that does not have some sort of heat source.
    We used to have, as I mentioned, ones that were nearly identical to what you posted but had a sterno fuel cup that kept the pies warm for a long time. The ones I most recently used (Domino's) were good for up to an hour... max.

    Mike.... is a power source available in the environments or venues that you are dealing with?

    Then I'd recommend some newer versions of what you have.
    I think that's the best option and really the only one that will give you the performance you are looking for- certainly if power availability is not an issue.
