on Craigslist...
May take some time but there is deals out there.
I found one for $35 and the guys delivered it.
Be patient...

How long will they keep food hot? What advantage hae they over a 5 day cooler?

Good question, Jestridge.

They have shelving brackets for hotel pans. I am not eating anything from a caterer that brings meat in a five day cooler. HD does not except a five day cooler for hot holding.

You can maintain 140+ for more than four hours, no problem once warmed.

Restaurant Depot has sales on them occasionally. I got mine on Craigs list, but I had to check every day and was the first one there the day they were listed.

coolers are generally not legal for holding cold or hot food per HD. Max of 4 hours in MI for cold holding in a cooler and that's raw meat from the store. Even then it can be a problem. Can't sue a cooler for hot holding.
