Buy a food heating lamp
When considering purchasing a heating lamp for food in your commercial kitchen, there are several factors to take into account. First and foremost is the size of the lamp you need – will it be used in a catering setting or solely in the restaurant? Next, consider the wattage of your lamp. This should be based on how much food you plan to heat at once. You should also look into the safety features of the lamp, such as an adjustable arm that can be raised or lowered to ensure safe operation.
What is a heating lamp?
A heating lamp is an ideal solution for keeping food warm. Dishes that you have prepared ahead of time are always best when served warm on the table.
When cooking for large groups, sometimes certain dishes are ready before others. Or perhaps you need to prepare a dish in advance and have a little time before you can serve it. It's useful if these dishes can be kept warm without occupying the capacity of your pots, pans and stovetop.
A heating lamp uses special infrared light to make sure that your food remains sufficiently warmed without cooking it more or burning it. Because you can adjust the height of the lamp yourself, you can control the intensity of the heat and use it for almost any dish you can think of. It's ideal for catering events and restaurant buffets.
The adjustable height almost means that anything you place under it is not only warmed, but also easy to reach when you are ready to serve. It’s an asset to any professional kitchen. From restaurants and cafes to canteens and food trucks, its wide range of applications and practical size makes it a very useful device in any professional kitchen.
What types of heating lamps are there?
Maxima has three different kinds of heating lamps: a single version with one lamp, a double version and a triple version with up to three infrared lamps. Your choice of appliance should naturally be based on the amount or size of food you want to keep warm. Larger catering businesses such as restaurants and hotels often need to keep multiple dishes warmed at once so the triple version is ideal. For smaller food businesses, the single or double lamp would be sufficient. The lamps also come with powerful 275W infrared lamps, and a matching GN tray.
