Model #SHF – Heating Up Your Next Meal Service

We spoke recently about hot food counters & why they are essential for any buffet or catering event. The fact of the matter is no meal service would be possible without a hot food counter in operation, especially if you are serving items that need to be at a certain temperature. Today, we’ll dive into our most basic hot food counter offering – Model #SHF.

In this article, we’ll tell you the ins & outs of Model #SHF & give you a few advantages of adding one to your lineup. Let’s start.

Model #SHF – Your Ally for Keeping Food Warm

Model #SHF modular hot food counter is designed to warm & keep your food at the right serving temperature. The unit is constructed from Type 300 series stainless steel with a 16-gauge top, 14-gauge frame & an 18-gauge apron.

The unit itself is electrically heated with individual controls & feature heated drop-in pans for dry or wet use.

Full size pans are utilized & each well has its own thermostat control. Each food well is pre-wired & provided with a 1200 watt element. The unit can be fitted with 2-6 wells.

Finally, the unit comes standard with quick release latches so multiple units can be joined together. 5″ heavy duty casters are standard for maximum mobility.

So, Why Add One to Your Lineup?

There are three big reasons to consider Model #SHF for your next meal service:

1. Warmth is Key – It’s a matter of food taste, but mostly a matter of safety. The recommended temperature for keeping food warm is above 140°F. Anything below 140°F is a cause for concern as bacteria & foodborne illness can become a real problem. Aside from that, no one likes the taste of cold chicken, beef, French fries, etc. so a hot food counter is the most sensible solution.

2. Customize Yours – We mentioned earlier that Model #SHF can be equipped with 2-6 wells depending on the size of your operation. SHF can also be customized based on your requirements. Some popular options include single/double service sneeze guards, tray slides & work shelves among others. Try to tailor yours so that will make the most sense for your environment.

3. Easy Cleanup – Thanks to the stainless steel construction, cleaning up after meal services is a breeze. All it takes is a simple non-abrasive cleaner & a wipe down. Similar hot food counters made of plastic or aluminum can be easily damaged & do not have the long lasting durability of stainless steel.

Hot food counters have been a catering/buffet staple from the very start. Having a reliable hot food counter with all the bells & whistles will take your meal service to the next level. For a closer look at IMC’s hot food counters, click here.
