Frequently Asked Questions about Food Warmers and Dispensers
How long can a commercial food warmer hold hot foods?
You can keep food in these food warmers for extended periods of time as long as you keep it safe from contaminants and at a temperature that is AT LEAST 140° Fahrenheit. However, the FDA advises against keeping food out for longer than two hours. After prolonged times, food quality will naturally decrease. It is recommended that kitchen staff always carry a food thermometer to ensure proper temperature levels are held.
What are the physical differences between food warmers?
- Full Size Food Warmers are generally rectangular in shape, holding a full-sized pan.
- Kettle warmers tend to have the cauldron shape, with a more curved outer shell and an inside varying from the same shape to cylindrical.
- Round food warmers generally take on a cylinder shape, with an indented lip near the opening.
- Well warmers have a rectangular base, with one or more wells nested side by side into heated holes.
- Buffet Warmers are rectangular in shape and can hold multiple full and/or half pans with a strip warmer, attached to the base, hanging above.
What style of food warmer is best for sauces, soups, and liquids?
The type of a food warmer depends on what you would put into it. To keep large amounts of food in full size pans warm, you will need a full size warmer.
- Kettle Warmers are great for stocks, chili, and other sauces either in the back of the house or available to your customers.
- Round Warmers are great for smaller applications of soups such as at a buffet-style restaurant where people can grab their own soup.
