Keep those hot foods hot while waiting to be served with one of these high quality drop-in hot food wells.

Hot food wells are perfect for any buffet-style restaurant, cafeteria, or dining hall. These rectangular hot food wells will drop-in flush to your counters or tables. These wells will hold multiple hot food pans while continuing to warm the pans keeping the finished foods at appropriate serving temperatures.

Most of these hot food wells operate either wet or dry for convenience, while others may be specifically wet or dry only. Not only are these units great for buffets, but they are also good in the back-of-house for keeping food items warm until further use or service.

A drop-in hot food well is designed to be integrated into your existing counter or other work or serving surface. It is simple to access your food pans since the rim of the food well is flush with the top of your counter.
