From delicious apple strudels to hearty chicken pot pies, you can serve mouth-watering and toasty delights to your customers with the help of a pie warmer. Staples in any great hospitality venue or professional kitchen, these handy appliances will expand the possibilities for your menu and help you to increase your sales by presenting your delicious array of pies, pasties, sausage roles and other delights in a visually appealing way that will keep your customers coming back again and again. A pie warmer is a unique piece of commercial kitchen equipment that is designed to provide an even source of heat in a compact area and in many ways resembles a mini-oven.
Whilst pie warmers come in many different shapes and sizes, the key differentiating feature is how users access the heated products inside. The most common model found in many Australian venues is a pie warmer with small sliding doors that are made out of solid metal or alternatively glass. These units make it easy to simply slide open the door and safely reach in to grab a pie. Alternatively, if you are after a model that stores a higher volume of pies, then we recommend a pie warmer with draws. The key benefit of a pie warmer with drawers is that their drawer design allows the storage of a greater number of pies in roughly the same space. Whichever model you select, a good quality pie warmer, like those from Roband, feature adjustable heating elements at the bottom which create a dry and warm heat to then heat the pies and help ensure that the pastry stays crispy and warm ready for serving when required.
These fantastic pieces of equipment are specially designed for commercial catering and they will keep your pies and other takeaway menu items warm and appealing. Like a mini oven, a pie warmer has an adjustable temperature dial and an easy to open drawer or door that is either solid or made of glass (reducing the risk of burning your fingers when grabbing pies). They are ideal for displaying or storing your food near counter areas and can also be used in staff kitchens and tea rooms to cook and hold pies. Their attractive design merchandises your products front and centre, helping to catch the eyes of hungry customers and tempting them to purchase the tasty treats waiting inside. An added advantage is that they are easy to clean, meaning that you can keep things hygienic and looking great without any hassle. Along with traditional pies, these warmers can also be used to keep other cooked items warm dim sims, chips and takeaway foods such as sausage rolls, curry puffs and more.
