Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What's the difference between open well and sealed well steam tables?
Open well tables can be used with spillage pans for moist heat holding, or without pans for dry heat holding of fried foods or other crispy items. This design allows the flexibility to have some of the wells using moist heat, and some of them using dry heat, at the same time. Open well tables do not have drains, so the spillage pans must be removed and emptied after service.

Sealed well tables do not need spillage pans; water is added directly to the well, and is emptied through a drain after service. However, sealed well tables should not be used for dry heat holding.

Advance Tabco Steam Tables

Advance Tabco is known for their wide selection of steam tables, so be sure you've got one at your buffet station! Watch this video to learn more about the various features that make an Advance Tabco steam table the perfect choice for you.

Perfect for buffets, catered events, cafeterias, and more, electric steam tables keep your food hot and ready to serve throughout meal service. Steam tables get their name from the steam that's produced as the water in the spillage pan or sealed well is heated from underneath. When deciding on the electric steam table that's right for you, it's important to examine all of your options. And remember, steam tables are designed to keep your food warm; they're not a means to cook your food. Sealed well steam tables are best for moist heat holding and they offer the added advantage of easy cleaning. These units don't use spillage pans, so you add water directly to the well from a connected water source. They also have drains that allow you to empty the water effortlessly when you're finished. However, if you have crispy options like fried chicken or French fries, then you'll want the flexibility that an open well unit provides. Open wells have exposed heating elements that require the use of water-filled spillage pans for moist heating, but they also allow you to take advantage of dry heat holding by not using the pans. Additional features to consider are whether you want a stationary or a mobile unit with casters, and what type of controls you want. We offer both infinite and thermostatic options to give you the level of control that's best for you. We also have different base styles to choose from, including enclosed bases, open bases, and undershelf models to suit your needs.

The SW-2E-120 electric food table features a convenient, adjustable undershelf to store extra food pans, serving utensils, or hot pads.

This three-pan steam table can be used with spillage pans, which gives you the flexibility of serving moist heat and dry heat products at the same time. A full length cutting board provides staff members with extra work space for changing out food pans or filling plates, and the cutting board is supported by a full length stainless steel shelf for stability. The cutting board can be removed for cleaning, and lug nuts keep it securely in place during use. If you run a hospitality service or catering business, you’ll appreciate the B3-120-B steam table. This unit comes with 4 casters, which makes it easy to set up and tear down in an event space. This model also comes with a sneeze guard, which protects your food from airborne contaminants as guests shuffle through a self-serve buffet line.
