Avantco Proofing / Holding Cabinets

Avantco Proofing / Holding Cabinets

Proof your bread before baking or keep your ready-to-eat items fresh for service with an Avantco holding / proofing cabinet. Avantco is your trusted brand for delivering high-quality results for less and these versatile cabinets are no exception. Available in both full and half size models with insulated and non-insulated options, we have the right fit for your business. Our full size cabinets can hold up to 36 full size sheet pans, making it great for your high volume restaurant, diner, pizza shop, or bakery. For a more compact option that's great for businesses with limited space, try one of our half size models capable of holding up to 12 full size sheet pans while offering all the same great features as our full size models. All of our Avantco holding and proofing cabinets boast nine adjustable heat settings reaching up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Thanks to the LED display located on the base of the unit, it's easy to monitor the temperature and maintain your ideal conditions. The proof mode is also user friendly, featuring adjustable humidity settings between 30 and 95 percent up to 115 degrees Fahrenheit. When deciding on the right holding / proofing cabinet for your business, you have the choice of insulated or non-insulated. Non-insulated models are more economical up front and tend to fit better in low volume operations. For more frequent use, insulated cabinets offer excellent heat retention, making them more energy efficient and saving you money in the long run. Avantco holding / proofing cabinets have clear, Lexan doors, so it's quick and easy to check on the contents inside. Magnetic seals and tight-fitting gaskets also make sure that the heat doesn't escape, while the 5" casters provide excellent mobility for maximum convenience as well as cleaning and maintenance. All models are UL and NSF Listed.

    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.
    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
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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!
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
