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.
