Customer Q&AAsk a Question

What's the best way to ensure this proofing cabinet stays at the lower end of the proofing temperature and humidity range during use?
The proofing function of this cabinet works best when it’s filled to near maximum capacity. A greater amount of dough will absorb excess humidity, keeping the cabinet temperature at the lower range.
How does ambient room temperature influence the performance of this cabinet?
Ambient room temperature can affect the temperature of your food product at holding/proofing. Due to differences in ambient room temperature, you may need to monitor the proofing process and/or adjust the proofing temperature and humidity settings of your Avantco heated holding/proofing cabinet to achieve the desired results. You may also need to adjust the temperature of the water used to produce steam.

In proofing mode, once steam is generated from the water contained in the bottom water pan, adjustments can be made to release heat in order to reach the desired temperature. If you are trying to proof at low temperatures, the desired proofing temperature must be warmer than the ambient temperature in your kitchen.

This Avantco heated holding/proofing cabinet operates at the following temperatures in heat and proof modes:

Heat Mode: 80°F – 185°F
Proof Mode: 85°F – 115°F (30-100% Humidity)
How is this unit insulated?
For effective heat retention and moisture resistance, this unit is insulated with Extruded Polystyrene (XPS). XPS is less prone to molding, providing a longer life for your unit.

Purchased this holding to hold our food item in between serving to the require temperature cook food is to be held. This has an extra humidity control the non insulated warmer does not. I purchased both warmer and this one does a better job at holding the temperature that it's set for; however, you have to keep watch on the temperature setting at the bottom and adjust occasionally temperature tend to rise and drop depending on the food you put it it along with how often it's open.

Could be a nicer product if the runners were wide enough to hold the pans. Some of the runners are but not all. Pan falls through on some then they get jammed. Causes a big mess when things on the pan spills into the cabinet. The design of this cabinet is not very well made. The runners have sharp corners so when placing pans into the cabinet, they will cut your hands up. This price for a heating cabinet is money not well spent for an inferior product.

When it worked...it worked pretty good to hold our BBQ meats at proper temps. However, it only worked about 2 months - or more accurately about 21 days of service that we used it and right in the middle of service it just died. And here's the awful part...we have another gig in 2 days but no warming cabinet to properly hold our food. If customer service can help me out...like really quickly...that would be great

We bought two of these for our commercial prep kitchen and they have been a great hit! For plated meal service these have been a must-have. For my own use, these are awesome when prepping a buffet meal and keeping items at temp. Very consistent hold temp and easy to move and keep clean.

Not recommended. I bought it for the price, but after using for 6 weeks, it went out. I can't not even power it up. I paid extra for insulated one but it doesn't have good insulation to keep my meat for longer period of time. I guess you get what you paid for.

There are some problems with this unit - construction is a bit flimsy. - the bar that is in the middle of the unit. - The clear door is very thin plastic - scratches easily. - there is no mechanism to hold the door open. - the magnet to hold it closed is pretty weak and the gasket is not holding a good seal. - the outside surface is hot and lost energy ( not properly insulated) - dry heat and it will dry the meat.

We purchased this warmer with the intention to keep our meats warm. I am not saying it doesn't work as intended, however, it is drying out my meats, unlike my previous older cabinet warmers. My older warmer had more room, we lost a lot of space with this one and there is no moisture option it is just dry heat. Unfortunately, we must order another one that will meet our needs.

We were very excited about getting this proof box. We tried to use it 2 times and every time we tried to use it it would blow out the circuits. On one outlet it created a spark and fire shot out! Contacted the company with no help at all. We have bought a lot of products through this website and are very disappointed with their customer service. It’s a bummer to have to try to find a new company to order equipment from.

product arrived quickly, in excellent condition, we placed the gasket and closing the door was easy, keeps the ffod warm for a very long time.

This proofing cabinet is amazing! We proof our dough using the Avantco HPI-1836 Full-Size Insulated Cabinet and it works great. This was a great purchase for us and well worth every penny. Have not had one problem using this. Would definitely order again soon.

Oriana R. from The Pastry Vault on 01/28/2021
         

Absolutely not constant in temperature. Even if it's written 115 on the pannel, it's closer to 95 inside. Reacting to change in temperature is very long. You better pay extra money and get a better model.

not much to say about this proofer other than it is a beast. we will be ordering another one soon. it keeps our food at temp throughout the day and keeps the health inspector happy.

Daniel F. from Jimmy Nicks on 10/04/2020
         

These warmers are great. We use them to store hot food during our summer programs . They keep the food pretty hot and doesn't dry them out due to the different deserting on there. They can get pretty hot. Hreat buy

Shena M. on 04/26/2020
         

Great warmer... only downside is where the water pan is, they should have made it pop out for easy cleaning. Otherwise from that it does what it says.

Racine W. from Top Taste Inc on 03/03/2020
         

Life saver this product is. The first use I noticed that it got up to temp fairly fast and was ready to go the first time I put a brisket in it, During a service of opening and closing it a fairly good amount of times it had a great recovery time. This unit also did not emit to much external heat inside our food trailer which is awesome because living in Louisiana it can get quite unbearable. I will buy another one of these units and I recommend it as a great buy..

Troyce R. from JAC's Tailgaters on 02/13/2020
         

I love this item for its size and ability hold temperature. As of now, the gasket is not holding a good seal and I believe this may have occurred since the beginning of operation, but cannot know for sure. I suggest to anyone purchasing to check the gasket for sealing issues promptly at purchase. Other than that, it’s a good product.

This product was a great purchase for our restaurant. had plenty of space to store our meal prep and the wheels made it very easy to move around the kitchen.

Absolutely love this heated holding , works perfect , specially for busy nights at to go orders when people takes longer , keeps it hot and fresh

This full size insulatated heated holding proofing cabinet is a great investment in any business are food truck. I purchased this one for my food truck. It keeps my extra food hot as I use what's on the steam table on the food truck.

Arthur S. from My Madea's Cookin on 11/20/2019
         

Purchased this for our restaurant to keep sold orders warm and food items warm during the day. It is perfect for that. It is suppose to be a (proofing) warmer also for bread. It does not work well for that. I put my dough in there and followed the instructions and it (ruined) my bread. Great as a warmer!

We purchased this Avantco HPI-1836 Full Size Insulated Heated Holding / Proofing Cabinet with Clear Door - 120V a year or so ago. We have not had any problems. Love having the clear door.

Debra H. from Let's Do Lunch on 08/08/2019
         

This hot hold has been a saving grace for our restaurant. It works great and we upgraded from a small half unit to this full size and it has come in handy. It does have a tendency to not seal shut it you don't make a point to make sure it is closed.

Daddy D. from DADDY D's BBQ on 07/29/2019
         

partner didn't read instructions before starting probably not a good idea. once we had the steam issue resolve and working this held our food very well for catering

Patricia V. from Maven Foods Co LLC on 06/20/2019
         

Excellent mobile low cost alternative to an Alto Shamm. Holds consistent temperature and is easily mobile to plug in anywhere. This is also a great unit for keeping food humidified and for proofing.

Jason M. from CRG Management on 05/27/2019
         

This has been working great so far. It heats up pretty quick and holds the temp well. The only down fall I have found is when you first get the product you will spend a good bit of time removing the laser tape from the glass door.

Matt F. from N/A on 05/22/2019
         

Excellent Product. Delivery fast and efficient. It is a large product but it works perfectly. Their wheels are effective because they help to mobilize it easily.

Fidel G. from Siamo Pizza on 03/08/2019
         

I have 2 of these proofers. For the price i really didn’t except them to last so long, but they definitely held up. My 1st one is close to 6 years old now and still going strong. Great product!

Holli C. from Sunrise Donuts on 02/08/2019
         

Works great. We have used it several time for in-house catering and it work great and being able to just roll it down the hall makes it even better.

Scott R. from LACC on 05/24/2018
         

Purchased two of these for our new event space. They heat up rapidly and hold the heat well. The only "downside" is the humidity water reservoir is welded into the bottom of the oven, resulting in having to use a bunch of paper towels and a cup to "bail out" the water instead of just picking it up and dumping it.

Sean A. on 04/30/2018
         

As a proofing and heating cabinet it works excellently... the only reason it earned 4/5 stars is its construction is a bit flimsy. The clear door is very thin plastic - scratches easily.... there is no mechanism to hold the door open... and the magnet to hold it closed is pretty weak. Asides for those small issues - I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Peter T. from Weho Sausage And Catering Co on 04/24/2018
         

We use this cabinet for holding our hot food in the kitchen before we transport it to our catering site. Excellent quality. Easy to adjust holding temperature and have never had a problem with the cabinet maintaining its temperature. There is also an adjustment dial for humidity control.

Jeff J. from From Scratch on 03/27/2018
         

This is really good for our small business. Easy to use and very easy to clean. We love it and recommend to other small bakeries.

This product has worked really well for me. I use it to hold my pizzas at temp while they are being held for our guests. The only small problem is the bar that is in the middle of the unit. I'm sure it is not a huge problem for most, but since I stack multiple boxes it does hinder my organization only a bit.
