Broil King knows that warming pans like the ones my parents used give instant "host with the most" appeal, and they've even added a bonus feature on the stainless-steel model pictured above. The top tray is where you put your food to keep it warm while you're serving it to guests, and the bottom is a compartment with a sliding door for warming plates. Genius! It also has dual thermostats so you can set the top and bottom for different temperatures.
The warming cabinet set, complete with three pans and lids, is available for about $299. It's a hefty investment for most of us, but a worthwhile investment for avid entertainers. You can see a video of the Broil King warming cabinets in action here.
