Hatco’s drawer warmers are a versatile holding platform for warming a wide variety of products including baked potatoes, rice, nacho chips, vegetables, chicken, and other protein products. Plus, tortillas, dinner rolls, and other bread products. They are the ideal solution for busy operators that have difficulty in keeping up with demand during peak serving periods. Products can now be cooked in advance and staged in Hatco drawer warmers for increased throughput in food service areas while ensuring a safe and quality holding environment. There is a drawer warmer solution for all operator applications. Freestanding models are available with up to 4 drawers and built-in versions for up to 3 drawers. There are narrow drawer warmers in both freestanding and built-in versions for tight spaces to maximize the linear footprint. Split drawer warmers are used to hold low-profile products in separate heat zones. Convected drawer warmers have a single, non-humidified cavity and a single, digital electronic controller which provides even, dry, convected heat for food products that do not require humidity like tortilla chips. The rice drawer warmer holds rice in the same pot as it’s prepared in, reducing pan-to-pan transfer time and labor. They accept Panasonic 23 cup rice pots with optional Town 30 cup pot drawer adapters available. Hatco drawer warmers are virtually indestructible. The competition uses ball bearings in drawer slides which, over time, need to be replaced due to the collection of grease and grime from daily operation. Hatco drawer warmers feature service-free nylon rollers which eliminates replacement of drawer slides, thus limiting costly kitchen down time. There are cut outs in the removable frame to accommodate different pan arrangements from the full size to the 2 half, and 3 third pan combinations. Positive closing drawer design ensures as smooth and complete closure. Our unique element design features a cal-rod element and illuminized baffle which promotes the dual benefits of even heat distribution and quick, onsite element replacement. Each Hatco drawer is constructed as a separate core wrapped with fiberglass insulation, preventing the transfer of heat from one drawer to another and maximizing energy efficiency. The recessed controller and angled, chrome handle prevent the potential problem of knobs and handles getting knocked off resulting from back-of-the-house cart traffic. Each drawer features its own thermostatic control, temperature display, and lighted rocker switch. Individual thermostatic control allows different products to be held at varying temperatures from one level to another. Hold dinner rolls in the top drawer at a gentle temperature setting while increasing the temperature in the lower drawer for optimum, quality holding of fried chicken. The optional powder-coated, painted front panels can be a useful operator’s tool when coding the various contents within each drawer. For example, green panels can signify the holding of vegetables while red panels represent the holding of protein products. The illuminated rocker switch provides a simple way to turn each drawer on and off. When approaching the end of the business day, remaining product from the second and third drawers may be transferred and served from the top drawer, reducing energy consumption. Heavy-duty, adjustable, stainless steel legs and a series of casters from 2” to 5” are available as options. Vents on the front panel may be adjusted to accommodate desired moisture levels in the drawer. Closing the vents maintains natural moisture in the cavity. To add even more humidity in the drawer to prevent products like grilled chicken from drying out, the spillage pan and splash baffle accessories may be used. Place a small amount of water in the large, oversized spillage pan. Place the splash baffle on top to prevent the water from sloshing around when opening and closing the drawer, and simply place the food pan on top. Using the spillage pan and splash baffle combination with the vents in a closed position ensures maximum moisture in the drawer chamber. This is a simple and service free solution for adding more humidity when needed. Other drawer warmer options include an oversized drawer frame and oversized pan accommodates the holding of bulk products. The biscuit frame option is ideal for holding lower profile products like croissants, cookies, or biscuits in 2, layered, half-sized pans to maximize holding capacity.
