I love this thing! I purchased it for my mom as a birthday gift which I thought would go perfect for her party which it did. I made dip for chips (queso and spinach artichoke) in each pot and it kept it warm the entire party. Most importantly it has a few heat settings so I was actually able to “cook” on of the dips straight in the pot. Totally awesome! Totally worth it! Not cheaply made at all! Mom and her guests loved it.
