Electric Steam Tables

Electric Steam Tables

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.

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.

Delfield EHEI48C Details

If your restaurant needs a reliable way to hold hot food for serving, look no further than the Delfield EHEI48L E-Chef electric steam table! This model features 3 wells, each designed to hold a 12" x 20" food pan up to 6" deep, and since each well also has its own 1000W heating element and individual controls, you can hold multiple items at multiple temperatures at the same time. A sealed well design also eliminates the need for cumbersome spillage pans, and 1/2" manifolded drains allow you to remove the water easily with a common gate valve.

The E-Chef series is also built for maximum durability. The top, sides, and wells are made from heavy gauge stainless steel to stand up to the rigors of any commercial kitchen, while a full-length, 8" deep polyethylene cutting board gives you a place to stage, slice, and make other preparations to foods. Just below the cutting board, a heavy duty stainless steel plate shelf gives your staff easy access to dinnerware so you can get orders out faster and store commonly used utensils.

A deep undershelf, also made from heavy gauge stainless steel, further expands your storage space and it has a 3" riser on the back to prevent items from being accidentally pushed off the shelf. This steam table comes mounted on legs and requires a 208/230V electrical connection.
