Consistent Temperatures With Waterless Technology
Alto-Shaam’s range of drop-in food wells includes hot and cold food, with many size configurations to choose from. First, the drop-in hot food wells combine a thermal base and an adjustable temperature module. With seven different options for pan capacity — up to five full-size pans in the standard model, and 11 quarts in the round model — there’s a food well for every buffet or prep station.
Simple thermostat controls ensure that food stays at the right, consistent temperature for full service, while the product’s stainless steel construction is built for heavy use. Meanwhile, our round hot food wells are perfect for serving soups and gravy. Optional individual well controls provide maximum control over temperature. The waterless technology allows for safer, easier and less costly holding.
Alto-Shaam invented the gentle, precise Halo Heat technology, which has been perfected in today’s hot wells. By embedding the surface with a gentle thermal cable, food is held at consistent temperatures that are ideal for serving. This also guarantees that nutrition, flavor, and moisture are preserved, while meat enzymes are retained for their tenderizing benefits. All in all, the radiant properties of Halo Heat reduce energy usage, meat shrinkage, and the need for additional equipment, saving time and money on a busy buffet line.
On the chillier end of the spectrum, our drop-in refrigerated cold food wells are truly effective at preserving freshness in food. Using a conductive cooling process, temperature is regulated from the bottom of the pan, instead of simply blowing cold air over the entree.
