I can't personally rate the Potlucker...YET...because the two I bought were purchased as gifts. My cousin in England needs something to carry the fish & chips that she gets in Cornwall for her father way back up the hill to his home, and my sister-in-law in the U.P. of Michigan is constantly making Greek food for various events in town, so they both need something to keep the food hot. I loved the idea of your Potlucker carrier, so I ordered one for each of them as Christmas gifts and am sending them off today! I'm CERTAIN they'll love them, and will let you know about the gushing...AND I'm going to gt one for myself! Happy Holidays!
