A Hot Pot is a warming device with a removable pan that is set on a thermostat. The thermostat heats up after you have set the temperature with the handy rotary knob. You fill the kettles / pans with food and put them in the device. The desired temperature of course depends on the ingredients in the pans, and whether you want to cook the dishes or just keep them at the right temperature. Thanks to the wide temperature range between 30 °C and 110 °C and a separate thermostat per boiler, you can heat almost all dishes with this. The lid of the kettle has a notch for a spoon.
