Warming cabinets offer two types of doors: glass and solid. Glass doors allow operators to see product without having to open the door and lose heat. Meanwhile, solid doors are advantageous because they are extremely energy efficient and create minimal ambient heat.
Full height warmer cabinets are great for high volume operation kitchens. However, opening the full door will cause loss of heat. Avoid this problem with a dutch door – or a split door. If heat loss is not an issue with the kitchen’s operation, the full length door is still a great option.
Easily keep the food warming cabinet at the perfect temperature with either manual or thermostatic controls. Manual controls require regular monitoring while thermostatic controls provide more precise temperature controls. An additional difference in controls is their placement. Top mount controls are safer during transport and during daily operations of a busy kitchen. These controls are also easier to see and access. However, there are models made with bottom mount controls, so it is important to ask where controls are located when purchasing.
