In any foodservice industry, steam table inserts are the backbone of operations. They are highly versatile and can stand up to the abuses of a modern kitchen. They can encompass any food, from hot to cold, wet to dry, solid to liquid and virtually anything in between. Stock up on these inserts in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate all of the needs of your commercial kitchen.
One way that steam table inserts are used is in a refrigerated prep table. The prep cooks will dice the tomatoes, slice the peppers and grate the cheese and place them in varying sizes of inserts. They will then cover these pans with cling wrap and place them in a refrigerator for storing until they are used. When the pans are ready for use, the chef will simply pull them out of the fridge, removes the cling wrap and pops that steam table insert right into the prep table.
