Steam tables are a valuable investment for any catering operation because they keep food at safe serving temperatures for long periods of time. Steam tables are named after the manner in which they keep food fresh and warm. Rather than apply heat directly to the bottom of a food pan (which can lead to overcooking) these units heat a well containing water, releasing steam that surrounds the bottom of the food pan with even, gentle heat. This maintains the temperature of food until it is ready to be served. A sure fire way to keep food at the proper serving temperature, commercial steam tables are ideal for catered events, buffets, cafeterias, and foodservice outlets that need to cook in advance. If you are shopping for high quality food steam tables, we have a large selection of these units available at the lowest prices.
Gas powered steam tables available on Kitchenall may use either natural gas or propane. We stock units with as few as two wells to as many as six wells so you can find one that works for the volume of food you will be serving. Each well holds a full-sized pan but can also accommodate certain fractional pans. Some food truck steam tables come with extra accessories such as bars and adaptor plates to allow the use of smaller pan sizes, which can be very useful for holding condiments, toppings, and similar items.
