Crock-Pot® 3.5-Quart Oval Hook Up™ Connectable Entertaining System in Metallic Blue
Great idea, poorly executed for large gatherings.
We entertain on a regular basis, at least once a month. This is a great idea, and I was all in. Received as a gift. But when we give a party, it is rare for us to have less than 50 people in attendance and these did not hold enough food to get the job done. They would be ok for your regular family dinner for a large family, but not for a party. I did better with disposable chafing dishes. Returned mine the next day for a full refund. Sad and disappointed.

Excellent for entertaining at my job. I am a part time bartender and make a lot of food for sporting events and special occasions. It makes everything so much easier. Look is very slick and classy .

Well-suited for parties, weekly dinners.
These units are perfectly sized for variety of items at a dinner party. Can be used and stored anywhere. Inserts stack next to units in cabinet. Each size can be stacked and easily connected. I've looked for a system that allows me to use multiple slow cookers at one time to keep foods hot more than cooking in them, and this is perfect. Everyone in our family eats something different, so I use 5 units together. This keeps dinner hot without getting up from the table to reheat anything and gives us the variety we need.

Overpriced and NOT REALLY STACKABLE!!!
So the UNITS are stackable but not WITH the crock pot and lid. The crock pots do not nest into another, so you'll need the real estate to store the units AND crock pots.
Also, one did not heat up that well.
Since most products one can buy nowadays are cheap and "disposable" it's no surprise the quality is subpar.
However, they kept already hot food warm. Served their purpose for our 1st party. Not sure if they're worth hanging onto. Receipt is still in my purse... (Let's see if this gets posted)

This is perfect for holiday get togethers
I absolutely love the hook ups. I have started with two but plan on adding more. They are wonderful for cooking and keeping things warm.
