A coffee urn (or a glass coffeepot and burner) are good for keeping things 

Rice cooker. 'nough said.

Those hot/cold thermal tote bags you get at the grocery store are a great 
help, especially in keeping trays warm while staging.

Always put a lid or tinfoil over the huge pot of water on the stove, or it 
will never boil (I always forget this one, and my number one always 
reminds me).
