The dramatic increase in takeaway and food delivery services has meant operators are looking for hot holding solutions to keep food in prime condition until it’s picked up. Given the wide range of different businesses in the sector, from high street cafes to high end restaurants and hotels, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer.
Now Williams has launched Hot Holding Solutions, a diverse trio of products designed to cover a range of needs while extending food shelf life through consistent temperature control.
The first Hot Holding Solution is the Williams Pizza Box. This compact cabinet is designed to accommodate ten 16” pizzas in their boxes, keeping them hot and in prime condition until they are collected.
Measuring just 710mm wide by 740mm deep and 450mm high, the Pizza Box is easy to fit into kitchens. The stainless steel cabinet has a bright LED display and the unit runs off a 13 amp supply.
For operators producing a wide range of different food delivery options, Williams offers the Scarlet Heated Multideck. The open-fronted design means that it’s very easy to see and take the appropriate delivery, while the halogen quartz heating ensures consistent temperature control.
The Scarlet is especially useful for operators needing different temperatures to hold different product, since it offers four individually controlled temperature zones. A slimline unit, 635mm deep by 1910mm high, there’s a choice of widths (710, 960 and 1250mm) so that sites can specify the ideal solution for their needs.
When preparing high volumes of delivery food, operators need a large capacity hot holding solution. The Williams Mobile Heated Cabinet is available in two sizes – the 390 litre MHC110 and the 549 litre MHC16 – and provides the ideal climate for hot holding packaged food. Its fast warm-up technology brings it up to operating temperature safely, quickly and efficiently.
A major benefit is that the cabinet is easy to move around, so it can be loaded in the kitchen then rolled to the delivery pick up area. This means it isn’t taking up valuable kitchen space, yet the food is held safely and efficiently. Easy grab handles make it a cinch to manoeuvre and all-round bumpers add protection in transit.
“Having a dedicated area for hot holding is a core need for any modern kitchen offering a takeaway or food delivery service,” says Malcolm Harling, sales and marketing director of Williams. “Our Hot Holding Solutions are designed to offer diverse products that meet the very different requirements of operators in this sector.”
