With the right warming equipment, every dish stays nice and warm, ready to be served. With a wide choice of heated food displays, chafing dishes and bain maries, Maxima Kitchen Equipment always has the right warming appliance for every food item.

When do you need heating equipment?

Sometimes it is necessary to prepare dishes in advance. It can then take a while before you actually serve them to guests. Using the right heating equipment ensures that you can still get hot dishes on the table. Although restaurants, hotels and cafes often use these appliances, many shops and canteens can also benefit from items such as the heated warming displays, soup kettles or heated lamps. These heating devices are also well suited to catering and self-service food businesses. They are designed in such a way that you can easily use them on site and the food is clearly visible.

How is it possible to keep food warm?

This depends on what kind of food or ingredients you need to keep warm. When it comes to products like sausage rolls, pastries, croissants, hot sandwiches and other snacks, they often need to be visible to the customer. In that case, heated display cases are the ideal solution. These are available with a sliding door at the front or rear so that the items can be selected and served up immediately. They are made of glass so the contents are clearly visible to customers.

For dishes that are ready to be served, it’s best to place them under a heated lamp. This ensures that the dish remains at the right temperature. It is ideal, for example, if more dishes are to follow and everything has to be served at the same time.

When keeping dishes warm for larger groups, a bain marie or chafing dish is a good choice. Bain marie is a specific cooking technique that allows you to heat or cook food evenly without the risk of burning the food or it losing its flavour. This method is ideal for food that must not get too hot because it can burn, overcook or separate. Thanks to the lid and the adjustable thermostat, you can easily keep food warm for a longer period of time, such as at a buffet or an event.

For food that needs to be kept warm in the pan, an electric hotplate is a good option. An advantage of this is that it does not take up capacity on your cooker. Thanks to its practical size as a freestanding model, you can easily take it with you on location, or use it temporarily as extra capacity during peak times in the kitchen.

After all the effort you've put into keeping food warm in the kitchen, you want to make sure it stays warm on the table for as long as possible. That's why you should serve it on plates that have been previously warmed in a plate warmer.  

What do you need to consider when keeping food warm?

There are, of course, several factors that play a role in keeping food warm. The method you use to keep food warm depends largely on the type of food. Liquids such as soups and sauces need to be kept warm in a way that wouldn’t necessarily suit pasta or vegetables. Soups and sauces should not be kept too hot because of the risk of burning, while meat and fish dishes should never be allowed to cool too much because of the risk of bacteria.

When buying a heating device, ask yourself the following questions:

  • What kinds of foods do you need to keep warm?
  • What quantities will you be using it for?
  • Do you need a device that has an adjustable temperature?
  • Must it be suitable for catering or self-service?
  • Does it need an electrical or gas connection?

You should also bear in mind that keeping food warm is not the same as heating it up. In other words, not all warming devices are also suitable for warming food up. And vice versa, not all appliances that heat something up are best to keep it warm. A soup kettle, for instance, is not used to boil or thaw soup, but only to keep it warm. The same applies to a warming lamp or a heated display case.
