Heated Lamps for Food – You might be wondering, “What is a food warmer? “, that’s a very good question and I’ll try to answer that for you. Food warmers aren’t nearly as popular as some other food related appliances, but they are indispensable to certain businesses. A warmer of food does exactly what the name implies: it heats food and keeps it at serving temperature.
Instead of applying heat to the food container, heat lamps warm your food throw infrared radiation. These are another mainstay of the restaurant business. Large heat lamps are usually installed above the self-serve area of most restaurants. These lamps generate a lot of heat and are great for keeping a large quantity of food hot for an extended period of time. These bad boys will never be found in many homes for the obvious reasons; these are strictly industrial devices. You can also find smaller heat lamps for heating small items like apple pie, French fries, and other baked items. The smaller heat lamps are usually free-standing and need not be installed overhead.
So, should you get a device to warm your food? You probably already know the answer to this question. If you’re a restaurant owner or work in the food service business, it’s obvious that you’ll need to get some sort of warming appliance whether it is the buffet server or the heat lamp. The answer is not so clear cut for homeowners.
