Electric Buffet Servers 2012

Does not cook, one set of controls simply keeps food warm for up to 3 hours. Three compartments (2.5 litres/quarts, with see through covers (probably plastic. It doesn't say glass so it must be plastic), stainless body. Made by Betty Crocker.
Is it worth buying? Please keep in mind that we don't have all the American chains, like Williams-Sonoma up here to pick from. Or, we certainly don't have them where I live.
learn, learn, learn...

I used them a lot when my family was still intact at home, mainly for breakfast as it saved me having to repeatedly cook as the others got up at different times.
I used them for parties and had several for when I was catering.
I don't entertain as much as I used to so these only get out once or twice a year. The newer ones I have seen are not as versatile as the old ones that had a temp control - one has two temp controls and two water pans so a meat dish could be kept hotter and another dish less warm.
It also depends on the foods you like. Some do not take well to being kept warm - one gets a soggy effect and sometimes things dry out unless the covers are carefully fitted.
If you have lots of company and serve things buffet style, then it is a handy thing to have.

I got mine at Walmart and it was only $35.
