Drop-in food wells are designed to sit flush inside your buffet tables and foodservice countertops, giving them a seamlessly integrated appearance. These units are thermally insulated so that the food served stays hot, or chilled for the duration of your service. Hot drop-in food wells are usually electrically heated and feature manual controls to achieve the perfect temperature for serving various foods. These can be used to serve hot meals, soups, and stews. The way these units are heated makes them an ideal candidate for rethermalizing chilled foods without causing a change in flavor. Cold wells are cooled either by ice or by using refrigeration systems. The thermal insulation for these units ensures that the temperature inside is maintained at a steady point. Cold food wells are excellent for serving chilled salads, desserts, fruit, and even packaged beverages.
