Have you ever seen food that has been sitting under heat lamps for so long that it is starting to sweat? Sometimes things just taste better when they are fresh. On the other hand, sometimes you just can’t have everything prepared fresh to order (ie: buffets), and you are forced to turn to another method of maintaining your food’s internal temperature.
In order to keep your food warm, you can choose from a variety of options including chafing dishes, food warmers, hot food tables or heat lamps. Each of these storage options are great for different products, so it is up to you to decide which best fits your needs. Chafers are generally powered with an outside gas source, whereas food warmers, hot food tables, and heat lamps are often electric.
When shopping for a heat lamp, it’s very important to consider what your food will look like after sitting for a few hours, as well as the item that you will be heating. The Two Bulb Freestanding Infrared Heat Lamp from Nemco is a great way to hold anything baked, steamed, broiled, and even fried at a ready to eat temperature, yet still maintain the food’s original attractiveness and lack of unwanted mushiness. This heat lamp is freestanding so you don’t have to worry about plugging it in to a nearby outlet. This warmer has an attractive and classic reflective look, allowing it to match almost any type of interior décor.
