If you've got a lot of food that you need to serve then our larger mobile hot cupboard is the best option for you. The top houses three GN 1/1 Bain Marie compartments, while the interior has two shelves for storing plates or plated meals.
Get the most from your hot cupboard hire
Hot cupboard hire is essential for busy kitchens which need extra space to keep food warm. They’re also very useful for one-off events which aren’t normally set up for extended food service.
There are essentially two kinds of hot cupboards for hire available on our website. Standard hot cupboards are great for keeping plates warm ready for service and can come with bain marie and heated gantry options for keeping food hot. Our mobile hot cupboards are particularly useful for spaces which aren’t normally commercial kitchens.
These hot cupboards are typically counter sized and can be used for serving food as well as keeping it warm.
Hot holding cupboards are designed to keep food warm ready for service and are designed to hold either gastronorm containers or plated meals. They can also offer different modes, such as proofing which is great for any kitchen which makes lots of dough-based products.
Holding cabinets are generally upright and can come with glass doors to make it possible to see what is inside without opening the door and affecting the temperature.
