Commercial steam tables are an essential part of any foodservice operation. Most commonly found in catering services, you may also see them in restaurants, food trucks or commercial businesses. The steam table is not used to heat up cold food, but rather maintaining foods temperature through water and steam. There are two main types of steam tables available, stationary and portable. Stationary steam tables come in both gas and electric models with two-pan to six pan set up. Portable steam tables have the same basic setup but will normally use electricity or alcohol gel. The commercial steam table is usually constructed of stainless or galvanized steel.
