How long will it keep food warm?
Heat lamps are not designed to hold food at temperature for long periods of time. They are designed to keep dishes fresh until food leaves the kitchen. The heat they generate is enough to cover small batches of food, such as appetizers, side dishes, baked goods, and carving stations. If you need heating power, consider a Commercial Bar Heater (Also known as a Commercial Strip Heater.)
Does it come with bulbs?
Yes, heat lamps usually come with bulbs. The bulbs are typically 250-watt clear heat bulbs, but there are also different types of bulbs that can be purchased. Check with the particular vendor to see what type of bulbs are accepted with their units.
Do I have to hard wire it?
A majority of our Commercial Heat Lamps don’t require any wiring work to get them set-up. Heat Lamps can be plugged into a standard outlet, allowing them to be functional in a variety of spaces.
