Holding equipment is an excellent investment for all types of restaurant applications: cafes and coffee shops can easily display baked goods and keep them warm while they await hungry customers. Traditional restaurants can keep pre-made side dishes and sauces warm while they await plating. Buffets can keep dishes hot on the customer line. No matter what type of eatery you run, warming equipment can help make your service more efficient.
There are a few different types of warming products used in commercial kitchens:
Steam tables have compartments that keep pre-made dishes and sauces warm before serving.
Holding cabinets are upright, heated equipment pieces that keep dishes at temp. They can also be used for proofing baked goods.
Countertop heated displays are most commonly used in bakeries or sandwich shops, and they serve two purposes: keeping food items warm and displaying them to customers.
Holding refers to keeping foods at a specific temperature before or after preparation or cooking. Both warm and cold holding are key in commercial kitchens, and restaurants can use warming, coolers, and commercial refrigeration equipment to keep food at the proper temperature.
Depending on your location, your local inspection authority may require certain ingredients or dishes to be held at certain temperatures, and holding equipment can help you maintain these safe standards.
To keep your equipment operational and extend its life, make sure to:
Closely follow a cleaning schedule
Clean equipment with adequate food-safe products
Remove any rust as soon as it appears
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for powering and servicing equipment
