Like all of their food holding and transport products, the Cambro food carriers are constructed of a single piece of molded plastic. The rubber door gaskets and foam insulation make the carriers ideal for holding pans of cold or hot food.
When using a Cambro food carrier to hold hot food, it is important to remember that the cabinet is not powered. Only the insulation keeps the food hot, and the food’s temperature will slowly drop over time. In general, the temperature will decrease four degrees every hour. You will want to take this into account when moving food to an event and make sure the food will still be hot when it is time to be served.
The same can be said when storing cold foods in a Cambro food carrier. Only, instead of cooling down, cold foods will slowly warm up. The temperature will increase about 1 to 2 degrees every hour when cold foods are placed in the carrier.
