Delivering & serving hot food is essential to every successful drop-off catering program. Ask about our space saver large insulated food carrier.

Sterno is redefining drop-off catering to be safer, simpler, and faster. Our SpeedHeat system utilizes non-toxic flameless heat for optimum safety. It provides instant heat, requires only a simple set-up and allows food to be served in minutes! All to help you achieve more.

The SpeedHeat system is simple and easy to use. To start, set up the base and and place a tray inside each base at the bottom. Open the SpeedHeat packets and place 1 in each tray reservoir. Fill each reservoir to the top with room-temperature water. The heat packets will activate in under 60 seconds, producing near instant, flameless heat.

Immediately add half pans of hot food into the base to trap all that heat! The SpeedHeat system will keep food warm for up to 45 minutes. It's ideal for quick-serve events like corporate meetings and office lunches. At the end of service, remove SpeedHeat packets and dispose in everyday trash. The base and tray are fully recyclable.

Sterno SpeedHeat™ Animated Introduction

Drop-off catering is one of the fastest growing segments in food service! Our research shows most drop-off catering events last less than an hour. When hot food is on the menu and time is short, providing heat quickly is a challenge.

Traditional disposable wire-rack chafing dishes take up to 20 minutes to get up to temperature and require assembly. Some business don't allow open flame on their premises.

A great business opportunity shouldn't be a source of worry. Introducing Sterno SpeedHeat™: the innovative solution that's redefining drop-off catering. SpeedHeat™ is a safe, flameless instant heat solution for portable warming and serving—a perfect solution for quick setup and eat events like business lunches.

Here's how the SpeedHeat™ system works:

Remove the SpeedHeat™ packets from their protective sleeves. Place in the holders inside the SpeedHeat™ tray. Completely fill the holders to the top with room temperature water. In seconds you have strong, safe, productive heat perfect for most drop-off catering events. Our system allows for the precise amount of water to be used with the SpeedHeat™ packets while keeping the heat source suspended to protect tables and counters.

The SpeedHeat™ packet continues to release steam until the water is completely absorbed (up to 45 minutes). SpeedHeat™ revolutionizes drop-off catering. Take the hassle and the hazards out of your drop-off catering service with Sterno SpeedHeat™—instant flameless food warming. Learn more about Sterno SpeedHeat™ today at www.SternoPro.com!
