Warming & Holding
> Countertop Warmers
Restaurants use countertop warmers both in the front and back-of-house to keep foods at a safe holding temperature (above 140° F) until they are served. The type of warmer needed depends largely on the food item that needs to be kept warm.
We offer countertop food warmers for any type of need. Full size countertop food warmers can hold full
sized food pans or a number of fractional sized pans to accommodate an ever changing selection of menu items. Choose a round countertop warmer if you are looking to keep items like sauce, gravy or cheese hot and fresh, use these for soup as well. If your business serves a large volume of rice, consider a rice warmer so that you can increase rice productivity and ensure that you have enough rice for even peak service hours.
Other items in this section like the countertop holding cabinets, drawer warmers, and fried food holding stations are a great choice for the countertop food warmer equipment needs of most fast food businesses and any business that sells crispy fried foods. Most food service establishments serve at least one hot condiment, serve them in a condiment warmer, this attractive type of countertop warming equipment can be used to merchandise your hot condiments like butter and nacho cheese with the help of lighted signs.
All of the countertop warming equipment in this section is designed to hold food at safe temperatures and ensure that all your food items are served at the peak of freshness and safety.

Commercial Kitchen Layout: Warming and Holding Equipment
Warming and holding commercial kitchen equipment is essential for food safety in the restaurant. Learn about proper layout and design for your own commercial kitchen equipment.
Keep Hot Foods Hot: Focusing on Food Safety
Hot foods must be kept above 140°F to assure a safe product. Proper hot food holding methods reduce the risk of food poisoning.
Commercial kitchens that do not need to keep a specific food type but rather need a versatile countertop warmer should select a standard full-size model. There are also portable warmers that have the same diversity but utilize overhead and bottom heat, rather than base heat. Establishments that produce a lot of fired foods for a buffet display will want a warmer specifically designed to maintain proper heat and preserve the food’s crispiness.
Soups, stews and sauces can be kept in either a special kettle or round warmer. Asian, Mexican and other restaurants that produce a lot of rice can use special warmers to keep the rice warm and moist until serving. Finally, operations that make burritos will want a special warmer to heat up the tortilla shells before loading them up with ingredients.
