Item #: 177HPU1836
Designed to keep all your freshly cooked food items hot until they're ready to serve, this Avantco HPU-1836 full size non-insulated heated holding/proofing cabinet helps ensure your restaurant, diner, or bakery is always prepared for high volume meal periods. Boasting nine adjustable settings and a heat mode that can reach 185 degrees Fahrenheit, this cabinet is perfect for storing a wide variety of ready-to-serve dishes. Or, operators can use the unit's integrated proofing mode for operation at a lower temperature (up to 115 degrees Fahrenheit) in order to proof bread before it's ready to bake. Humidity is provided by moisture in the water tray of the bottom of the unit, and adjustable humidity settings from 30% to 100% allow for a completely customized proofing experience.
A total of 36 pan slides accept full size 18" x 26" sheet pans, while a Lexan clear door provides outstanding impact and heat-resistance as well as allowing for easy monitoring of the contents inside. For valuable temperature protection, the door is paired with both magnets and a tight-fitting gasket to ensure the warm air inside does not escape. An easy-to-read thermometer for effortless temperature monitoring and a pair of dials is located on the unit's bottom control drawer that can also be removed for quick cleaning. Thanks to four 5" poly casters, this cabinet can be filled and moved from your prep location to the serving area with incredible ease. Other features include integrated corner bumpers that protect nearby walls and equipment during transport. The Avantco HPU-1836 full size cabinet requires a 120V electrical connection.

I bought this cabinet originally for proofing my dough a second rise, but now we use it for keeping our freshly cooked waffles warm for rush times and busy mornings. I can get it up to about 185 in 30-40 minutes and it will hold about that heat all day long. It will keep warm without further cooking our waffles. I can keep waffles warm and tasty in there for at least two hours, if not longer. I just haven't tried any longer yet. The controls are easy to use, the cabinet cleans inside and outside easily and if you want to wheel it around, it moves without problem. It is very light and not heavy at all. I can touch the outside on full heat without problem too. This site sells full size baking pans (18x26) and wire racks (16x24) that fit the slots on this cabinet perfectly. You can also put half size pans they sell (13x18) in sideways. I loved the price and I'm glad I bought this cabinet. It has helped us through many busy shifts. I couldn't run a shop without it. We say buy it! Jeff
This unit is a really good deal versus the typical name brands. The construction quality and operation have absolutely no noticeable difference. We plan on purchasing more of these in the future.
We love this food warmer it is A really good asset to our kitchen It keeps food hot for a very long time and we love it. Thank you
Needed a inexpensive warmer to hold our BBQ when it comes out of the smoker. Purchased this one and very happy. It warms up fairly quickly and holds temp well even though its un insulated. I also like the spacing of the rack slides as can add as many as you need.
So this is not the top of the line proofer. But I will say that we use it daily for proofing bread products first, then holding product for the steam tables during service. I have owned one that was twice the price but this one does a great job.
I have not got to test the full capabilities yet but everything appears to be functioning properly. Great height and user friendly. I cant wait to use it!
Avantco Full Size Heating and Holding Cabinets are a great fit within our Concession Trailers and Mobile Kitchens. These are very easy to use and versatile.
Very good wormar we love it And easy to clean Fast shaping Coustmer service very good We have it for over one year working very good
Bought this as my first proofer in my business, and opted for the cheapest full size proofer i could find, but was not disappointed. Its not insulated, but it still maintains its temperature well in my garage at freezing temps. No complaints yet at all.
I LOVE THIS PROOFER/HEATER.!! I USE IT FOR MAKING BREAD AND KEEPING FOODS WARM DURING EVENTS. I DEFINATELY WILL PURCHASING ANOTHER ONE IN THE FUTURE
I love how hot my food stays in here. We do lots of catering and we place all our trays in here as we complete prep and I feel like it’s hotter than when I put them in! Def a KEEPER. It has wheels and make it easy to clean underneath it!
A less expensive version of those produced under more recognizable labels, but meets the need and does what it is supposed to do. A bit smaller than some options but works well for our operation.
We purchased this warming cabinet as an addition to our kitchen at the Post. Perfect size, fits in our cramped space perfectly. We use mainly for keeping large quantities of cooked food at proper temp prior to serving. Has saved us several times during large Veterans events. Thermostat has worked very well & easy to see at base of unit. Very handy to have wheels, unit rolls easily. Good unit & price was within our budget.
Does the job, but the plastic glass covering that it comes with is impossible to remove! It's very hard to remove the plastic from the edges...!
