Rated 3 out of 5 by heloman Hostess trolley. Good but could be better.
Overall quite satisfied, but latest model not quite as good as the 30 year old Phillips model it replaced. Takes longer than the 20-30 minutes specified to get up to a decent temperature and cannot control the cupboard compartment and the top dish warmers separately. Also no temperature variation rheostat, so only operates at the one temperature. Still a very useful aid to a large family lunch gathering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bargainhunter1509 Excellent purchase - fantastic
We are absolutely delighted with this purchase. Hostess Trolleys might be a 70s thing, but this was our life saviour when it came to entertaining guests for Christmas. Worked a treat! Food stayed warm, and the extra Pyrex serving dishes that come with the trolley was a nice bonus! The style and colour blend in nicely with our furniture, and the look and feel of this product is really smart. The service from John Lewis was once again excellent, the trolley arrived within the timescale they said it would, literally a couple of days before Christmas, we had only ordered it few days earlier. An excellent investment!!!

It may be 1960s technology (I am 1940s technology!) but this Hostess trolley is brilliant - warm plates and it keeps vegetables, etc. warm without spoiling. Ideal for dinner parties. Takes about 45 minutes to get everything really warmed through.

Excellent product. Takes the stress out of entertaining as no anxiety if guests are late for a meal. Food is kept hot and not dried out.

Delivered on schedule by 2 very helpful, smiling, delivery men. This is my second Hostess Trolley (I keep one in my house in France) and don't understand why they've gone out of fashion. It's great being able to greet dinner guests all relaxed, knowing that the food will stay hot and won't spoil. I can highly recommend not only this product, but the whole concept.

Great piece of equipment. Keeps everything hot and moist. Three large areas for keeping things stored. We used it mainly over Christmas to feed 12 people. Without the hostess, this would have been a nightmare, and not a particularly relaxing experience for the main cook (wife), and consequently a nightmare for me !!! However, all went really well, Wife relaxed, AND me in her good books for buying the hostess. We can also see it being really useful for summer Barbies too. Doesn't take up much room either. Would recommend to anyone. Your life will become so much easier. Do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mag23 Best buy
I have thought about buying this product for the last year, with christmas fast approaching I bought it. I now wish I had bought it a long time ago. It is excellent quality, really easy to use and stylish. With 10 people to feed at christmas, having this item allowed me to cook items and put them in the trolley thus giving me more time to spend with my guests. All food was hot and using this item made christmas more relaxed and enjoyable. I know it will get used many times in the future. If you are considering buying one of these, hesitate no longer, it's certainly my best buy. Worth every penny
