What Is a Warmer Drawer?
A warmer drawer is a type of commercial food warmer that is perfect for keeping breads, dinner rolls, or french and italian bread fresh and warm like they were freshly baked upon arriving at the customer's table.
A food warmer drawer, however, is not limited to bread or other baked products. It can also be used to warm anything from meat to vegetables, at an energy-efficient manner. Drawer warmers are available in narrow and standard widths and can be built-in or freestanding as well as split drawered or convected.
What Should You Consider When Purchasing a Food Warming Drawer?
When looking for a drawer warmer for your restaurant or food-service establishment, it is important to look at the number of drawers you might need, apart from the overall size of the restaurant warming drawer. This is because a warming drawer oven can have anywhere from one to four drawers, depending on the model and depending on what you require for your restaurant or food-service establishment.
So how many drawers should you purchase when looking for the ideal commercial food warmer? There is no definite answer, and your choice actually boils down to how big or small the space you've allocated in your kitchen to accommodate your warmer. For instance, one-drawer and two-drawer models of drawer warmer units may be small enough to fit on the countertop (or you might just want to get a specific countertop warming drawer), depending on the brand or model.
Regardless, you might want to check out the overall dimensions as well as the drawer dimensions just make sure that the restaurant warming drawer that you purchased will exactly fit the spacing and storage needs of your restaurant or food-service establishment. Remember also that certain food warming drawer units may have their own temperature control knob as well as its own temperature.
Another thing to consider is whether the commercial warming drawer you are looking at features drawer vents. These drawer vents open and close via a sliding knob. A drawer warmer that features a vent is perfect especially if you want to place freshly baked bread or other hot items directly in the warmer because these kind of food items can become soggy especially when packed directly inside an enclosed space right after cooking.
