Holding cabinets are an essential piece of equipment for restaurants looking to keep food warm and delectable before serving it to customers. Heated holding cabinets help preserve the temperature of pre-made food items, so you’ll never have to worry about dishing out cold food to customers. Maximum temperature control helps maintain enhanced food safety and taste.
Short Order offers many quality brands of heated holding cabinets including: Alto-Shaam, Crescor, Hatco, Metro, and Vulcan. Each brand comes with different features. When buying a holding cabinet, the first consideration should be what type of cabinet will best suit your business needs. Mobile cabinets have wheels that combine food warming with easy transportation. Countertop cabinets are convenient if your restaurant is short on floor space. Pizza cabinets are full-sized cabinets that are specifically designed to store larger quantities of pizza. Short Order carries both half-height and full-height holding cabinets to meet your restaurants’ food capacity needs. Half-height cabinets are best for smaller restaurants or smaller warmed food quantities, whereas full-height holding cabinets are best for full-service restaurants. Most cabinets have full-size pan (12” x 20”) capacity. Other considerations should include what voltage is required (120/1v or 208-240v) and whether you need an insulated or non-insulated holding cabinet.
Short Order recognizes that quality and value are important when buying restaurant equipment. Our Low Price Guarantee backs all holding cabinets and any other restaurant equipment. If you find a better price offer from another vendor, we promise to refund 110% of the price difference on the same item. No matter what you buy, Short Order ensures free freight on all restaurant and bar equipment purchases.

Most commercial kitchens or restaurant buffets require infrared heat lamps to keep prepared food warm without it drying out or becoming discolored. Food heat lamps keep dishes at the perfect temperature until ready to be served. The two most common types of restaurant heat lamps are strip warmers and bulb warmers.
Strip warmers consist of a single or dual, high wattage tubular metal heater rod. The majority of these units are designed to be installed and stay in one place. They are great for buffets because they come in a variety of lengths, and can also be found in the back of the house.
Bulb warmers are usually freestanding units that can be plugged into a standard outlet, making them portable. They don’t produce as much heat as the strip warmers and generally cover less surface area. These units are ideal for carving stations or for holding warm bags of foods at concession stands, like French fries.
If you’re trying to decide between food warmers or heat lamps, remember that heat lamps are best for keeping foods warm for a short period of time. They work best on foods with a small surface area like veggies, breads, or pieces of meat, like chicken breasts. These units are not meant to be used for long-term holding or for heating dense foods like mashed potatoes. For those kinds of items, opt for a drop-in food well, holding cabinet, or hot food table.
Sandwich grills, also known as sandwich toasters, often seen in delis and lunch eateries, are essential for quickly delivering toasted sandwiches - with cheese melted inside them to perfection - to hungry customers. Most sandwich grills or sandwich toasters include a pressure element - a hinged lid with an embedded heat element that swings down on the food - to compress sandwiches and ensure that the bread and contents are evenly browned. Our favorite brand-name sandwich grills and sandwich toasters include: Star/Holman sandwich grills, Lang sandwich toasters, and Cadco sandwich toasters.

Whether your customers order golden fries, crispy chicken, or breaded shrimp – they expect piping hot goodness straight out of the fryer.
