Commercial Steam Tables

Steam tables are designed to hold hot food items for a long period of time. Elite Restaurant Equipment is happy to say they offer a large variety for steam tables at a discounted price.They feature different heated wells into which water is placed for a pan of food to float in. The steam created in concert with the hot water help maintain an even temperature on the pan as well as keep the food moist until served. Each well of a steam table is designed to fit both water and a full-size pan of food. One some models a separate, larger pan is required to hold the water as well. The only difference is what type of heating element the table has. Some elements are able to be submerged, others are not. Be sure to know if you want an electric or gas steam table.
