Commercial heated cabinets come with many names: heated holding cabinets, hot food holding cabinets, or simply holding cabinets. Whatever the name they go by, these units are simply a useful type of warming equipment designed to keep your food at safe, optimal serving temperatures while transporting it wherever it needs to go. In general, heated cabinets feature heavy-duty caster wheels so that you can very easily roll them from point A to point B, whether that be from cafeteria to classroom, from food prep area to storage area, or from the oven to the buffet. Typically sporting a stainless steel construction to fight corrosion and stand up to years-long heavy use, heated cabinets ensure you always have deliciously prepared food ready to serve to hungry guests.
Traditional holding cabinets are generally equipped with internal shelves and have four heavy-duty wheels for easy portability. As the industry evolves, the best restaurant equipment manufacturers have taken the heated cabinet to the next level. For example, Eagle Group makes low-temperature ovens that serve as proofing ovens and heated cabinets in a single unit. Many of these units offer adjustable and removable shelving, plus many more customization options to suit your specific needs.
As you can tell from our vast selection, heated food cabinets come in tons of unique styles, sizes, and price points. There are half-height and full-height sizes with single and double compartments.
