Hot food tables, also known as steam tables, are used to ensure food is kept warm at a set serving temperature. They should not be used for the purpose of cooking or warming up foods from a cold/uncooked temperature. Hot food tables can be used in a variety of settings, but most often are found at either self-service or operator service buffets. However, they can also be used for warming purposes in the back of the house.
