Food heat lamps come in a few varieties: bulb warmers, strip heaters, and dump stations. They can be found in fast food restaurant as well as more high-end restaurants. Many of these are designed as fry dump stations, with a pan underneath for your fried food to be placed, but we also have just bulb-warmers with a spot underneath where you can place trays or plates for food that you’d like to be kept warm and at a safe serving temperature.
A strip warmer is a great addition for fast food restaurants and other restaurants who want to have a place to keep their food hot and ready to serve in an instant. These strip heat lamps come in a variety of lengths, and they’re rated by their wattage. A higher wattage means a more powerful strip food warmer, which means you’ll be able to keep your food hot for longer periods of time.
Do you want to hard wire your strip food warmer or to have a plug in? Well, a hard-wired connection can be nice because you won’t have a cord dangling everywhere, but it means you’ll have to get an electrician in to do the hard-wiring.
Our strip warmers are high-quality commercial units, so they’ll be made of stainless steel, aluminum, or powder coated steel, depending on which warmer you go with. We also have strip warmers for high and low volume needs, so we have light-, medium-, and heavy-duty models. We also cary double and single strip warmers, depending on how much food you expect to place under the warmer.
For the heating elements, there are a number of options: there is quarts, halogen, metal sheathead, and ceramic, and some of our strip warmers have infrared light that will keep your food hot for a very long period of time.
