A friend gave me some of these when she was downsizing, however they were the cheap dollar-store variety and they went brittle and cracked after a single summer of sun exposure. Something like the stainless warming trays from buffet tables would be much longer-lasting and a similar shape. Yes, more expensive, but I'm getting pretty worried about all the plastic humans are making and not "unmaking" - at least metal has some hope of being recycled.
