Customer questions about this product

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.

If you’re not sure which style is best for your needs, please contact Customer Solutions prior to placing your order!

Alto-Shaam HFT2-500 Details

Perfect for supermarkets, cafeterias, and buffets, this Alto-Shaam HFT2-500 five pan electric tabletop hot food buffet table features a freestanding, countertop design with ample lighting for product visibility. The lighting not only attracts customers to the display, but showcases the hot dishes on sale. The unit accommodates up to 5 full size, 4" deep food pans to hold those dishes. It can also accommodate (10) 1/2 size or (15) 1/3 size, 4" deep food pans for added versatility. With tray slides on each side of the display, the unit makes self-service safe and easy to allow customers to fill up their plates or take-out containers with piping hot rice, beans, vegetables, and other delicious dishes!

For your convenience and peace of mind, the power and temperature controls are easy to access, but concealed to deter tampering or accidental changes. A transparent, slanted canopy adds visual appeal for even the most modern of operations.

This particular hot food buffet table features patented Halo Heat technology to provide a high-quality holding environment. Heat radiates from the base and upper canopy, gently and evenly heating product. This process helps extend product life, while eliminating the need for steam. Without steam, the unit won't develop the lime and scale buildup common with steam equipment. A 208V electrical connection is required for operation.
