Warming Drawers

Warming drawers add a level of comfort to a kitchen, indoors or out. Warming drawers are powered by electricity and feature a variable temperature control setting. The exact temperature control range varies among the brands. Expect to find a control range of about 90 to 220 degrees Fahrenheit. You can keep freshly prepared foods at the perfect serving temperature for you and your guests or create mouth-watering dishes cooked low and slow. You can also turn them to the lowest setting and warm food, plates or keep warm towels near a swimming pool. Many models of warming drawers come with adjustable vents on the front panel. This controls the amount of humidity or moisture inside the warming drawer. This is helpful when preparing bread or allowing the steam from freshly grilled foods to expel, preventing the food from becoming overcooked or soggy. Certain models of warming drawers come with various sizes of food pans to offer up a variety of dishes simultaneously. Warming drawers will usually be built from 304-grade non-corrosive stainless steel. The majority of warming drawers are 30 inches in width and others can be found integrated into a 42-inch wide combination cabinet. These are sometimes referred to as warming drawer combos or built-in convenience centers.
