Heated Merchandisers and Cabinets – also known as snack warmers – are units with almost universal heating and merchandising application. They are containers available in various sizes with heating sources which sit on countertops displaying food to customers. Some units are self-serve which can be beneficial to businesses such as convenience stores.
