Provide your kitchen with a space-saving, heat-holding, and sleek looking built-in warming drawer.
A drawer warmer is an electrical appliance used by food service kitchens to keep food that will not be served immediately fresh, flavorful, and at the proper serving temperature once it has been removed from the oven. Bread, pastries, meats, and potatoes can be kept warm in a warming drawer until you're ready to serve them.
Hold foods at ideal temperatures in between chef and customer with a heated drawer warmer. Because they can deliver low temperatures and humidity, they can also be utilized as dough proofers. This is very useful for restaurants that want to bake their own dinner rolls each day. However, for more powerful and higher-volume dough proofing, check out Burkett's vast array of proofing cabinets.
Drawer warmers are also useful for warming up plates or bowls when using them to serve hot items. By warming up your plate or bowl, you can increase the length of time the food item within remains hot once served or taken from a hot box.
Being constructed mostly of stainless steel, these units will add to the clean look many kitchens strive for. Many units allow users to load or lift pans without tilting them, which helps to avoid messy and expensive spills. This also makes these units easier to clean out and keep clean for kitchen staff. Most are also highly insulated, making them energy-efficient and reducing the amount of heat that enters the kitchen from the outside.
Sizing & Capacity
Built-in warming drawers are available in single or multiple drawers. With more drawers comes more interior heating space for food pans and plated meals. However, the overall dimensions will increase and take up more kitchen space. Choose a 3-drawer warmer to keep low-medium volumes of foods hot during a lunch rush.
Pan capacities are thus determined based on how many drawers your unit has. Higher capacities correlate with more drawers. Check out our collection of commercial food pans to ensure you have the appropriate sizes for your heated drawers.
Although these units are great for low and medium volumes of food pans or plates, we have larger, mobile units that can be helpful as well.Check out our great collection of banquet carts, holding cabinets, and hot buffet stations.
Warming Drawer Temperatures
All drawer warmers come with control knobs or digital temperature panels for maximum temperature control. The majority of the time, the temperature is kept between 80 and 220 degrees Fahrenheit.
Built-in units will need to fit cabinet or chef station specifications. These models are able to be built-in to preexisting counters and tables, or can be selected while customizing a kitchen layout. Drawers can fit directly under preparation tables or next to ovens for easy movement of hot pans.
Built-in designs are popular thanks to their sleek appearance and ability to save valuable kitchen space. Due to the fact that under-cabinet heaters can be positioned within easy reach of prep stations, many cooks also favor their enhanced convenience.
If you are not looking for a built-in drawer warmer, check out countertop warming drawers for similar performance in a more compact size.

Frequently Asked Questions about Warming Drawers
Can warming drawers cook or reheat cold foods?
Warming drawers do not cook food. This is one of the most crucial things to remember. They're also not designed to warm cold items to servable temperatures. They simply keep already-cooked and heated food at a temperature that is safe to eat.
