Portable Steam Tables
Portable steam tables are an essential part of any buffet-style restaurant or food service operation. High quality portable steam tables, found in any restaurant supply, or catering supply, keep hot foods heated regardless of where you serve them. Portable steam tables display the items you intend to serve and keep them held at an appropriate temperature, both for taste and safety. Portable electric steam tables, as well as portable gas steam models, keep hot foods moist and ready to serve at your buffet, cafeteria, or catered event. Most steam tables have bays for anywhere from two to five pans, and can offer a number of desired features. Portable steam tables, just as stationary steam tables, need a power source to maintain the desired temperature of the hot-water bath or steam cabinet, which keeps the food hot. You can choose an electric steam table, or select a natural gas, or liquid propane steam table. Generally when selecting a portable steam table one would choose a propane-powered steam table, which is much easier to move than one connected to a natural gas line. However, when selecting a gas powered portable steam table, it is always best to factor in utility costs in your area.
