Vegetable insets provide an interesting way to showcase raw or steamed veggies along a buffet line. A vegetable inset’s usefulness is not limited to vegetables, however, as an inset full of soup or stew could be placed in a steam table and will maintain its temperature. Royal Industries has an attractive option available in its 2 1/8-qt. stainless steel vegetable inset (ROY IST 5). Durability will not be an issue with this vegetable inset as it is constructed of sturdy stainless steel.
