Drawer warmers are great for holding food, but not for display. These are usually cabinets or drawers that work well in a kitchen because they are smaller in size and don’t take up valuable countertop space.
Drawer warmers have a wide variety of uses from holding hot meals with lids for banquet serving to holding bread rolls or similar foods. They can have separate controls for multiple drawers, allowing a user to store various items at different temperatures and humidity levels.
Countertop Food Warmers
Food warmers are traditionally used to serve hot food in a self-serve environment, such as a buffet. Some are tailored to specific products while others are all-purpose. Food warmers can hold hotel sized pans for solid foods or soup style dishes for liquid foods. They are available with electric hook-ups, which reduce mobility, but increase safety.
Soup kettles and food warmers should be used to bring precooked foods up to a safe warming temperature, but you cannot cook raw food in them.
