Rated 5 out of 5 by Heathr0w Excellent Product
Arrived on time, safely and well packed. Does what it says. Some say the top scratches, which is true, but so did the originals. we've had one for many years and it is only cosmetic.
Just purchasing a third one now to another friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Magna123 Bought for heating plates
The measurement given excluded the handles so it was a little too big for the space I had allocated however the hot tray does what it says and I am now able to heat all my plates and dishes prior to serving.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Irelanda002 Very disappointing
Bought this in February 2014 and used it occasionally leading up to Christmas. I was never very impressed with it as it didn't get beyond luke warm and I don't think it made much difference to keeping the food hot. I tried to use it last weekend for the first time since Christmas and it wouldn't work. As I t was two weeks outside the guarantee period John Lewis couldn't help but did give me the manufacturers phone number. They wouldn't help either despite the fact the tray had only been used a maximum of six times. We won't be replacing it with another as the old trays with the nightlights in are better and can't break down! Not sure if ours was faulty having read the other reviews but it's certainly a product I would not have again.

Does what it says on the packet. A good size, fits either on the table or on a sideboard and will stay hot without being kept plugged in. Much easier to store than my defunct trolley, bought in the seventies. My stainless steel dishes and platters are ideal as they have wide flat bases which give excellent contact with the tray. It might not be as good if they had feet as good contact is helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hellesbelles hot stuff!
Bought this in time for Christmas, so glad I did! It only takes a few minutes to heat up but really does stay warm for a good hour. Great to be able to enjoy a leisurely meal with good conversation without worrying about food going cold. Don't know how I've managed without one before!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pompnora Being cordless a bonus!
Very impressed with quality. Have only used once so far but sat neatly in the middle of the dining table without any trailing power cord - fantastic! Previously had a corded food warmer which obviously stayed hotter longer but this is great value. Only downside is not being able to buy pots 'WITH LIDS' to fit it - shame Hostess don't do any.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Supacat Very useful product - especially if you do a lot of entertaining.
The tray heats up in under 30 minutes and retains its heat for a least one hour. Food keeps hot but does not dry out at all. Glass dishes keep warmer than ceramic ones but all must be warmed (in an oven) before being placed on the tray or else they may crack. Nice that the electric cable is detachable. Looks stylish on the table. The large tray held three large dishes. However, its only downside is that the surface is inclined to scratch but it is not too noticable since the silver finish is matt. All in all a very good buy.
