Designed to keep all your freshly cooked food items hot until they're ready to serve, this Avantco HPI-1836 full size 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. And thanks to an insulated design that locks in your holding temperature, this unit boasts up to 35% energy savings versus non-insulated units.

A total of 36 pan slides accept full size 18" x 26" sheet pans, while a Lexan clear door provides oustanding 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 HPI-1836 full size cabinet requires a 120V electrical connection.

These warmers are great. We use them to store hot food during our summer programs . They keep the food pretty hot and doesn't dry them out due to the different deserting on there. They can get pretty hot. Hreat buy

Great warmer... only downside is where the water pan is, they should have made it pop out for easy cleaning. Otherwise from that it does what it says.

Life saver this product is. The first use I noticed that it got up to temp fairly fast and was ready to go the first time I put a brisket in it, During a service of opening and closing it a fairly good amount of times it had a great recovery time. This unit also did not emit to much external heat inside our food trailer which is awesome because living in Louisiana it can get quite unbearable. I will buy another one of these units and I recommend it as a great buy..

I love this item for its size and ability hold temperature. As of now, the gasket is not holding a good seal and I believe this may have occurred since the beginning of operation, but cannot know for sure. I suggest to anyone purchasing to check the gasket for sealing issues promptly at purchase. Other than that, it’s a good product.

This full size insulatated heated holding proofing cabinet is a great investment in any business are food truck. I purchased this one for my food truck. It keeps my extra food hot as I use what's on the steam table on the food truck.

Purchased this for our restaurant to keep sold orders warm and food items warm during the day. It is perfect for that. It is suppose to be a (proofing) warmer also for bread. It does not work well for that. I put my dough in there and followed the instructions and it (ruined) my bread. Great as a warmer!

We purchased this Avantco HPI-1836 Full Size Insulated Heated Holding / Proofing Cabinet with Clear Door - 120V a year or so ago. We have not had any problems. Love having the clear door.

This hot hold has been a saving grace for our restaurant. It works great and we upgraded from a small half unit to this full size and it has come in handy. It does have a tendency to not seal shut it you don't make a point to make sure it is closed.

Excellent mobile low cost alternative to an Alto Shamm. Holds consistent temperature and is easily mobile to plug in anywhere. This is also a great unit for keeping food humidified and for proofing.

This has been working great so far. It heats up pretty quick and holds the temp well. The only down fall I have found is when you first get the product you will spend a good bit of time removing the laser tape from the glass door.

Excellent Product. Delivery fast and efficient. It is a large product but it works perfectly. Their wheels are effective because they help to mobilize it easily.

I have 2 of these proofers. For the price i really didn’t except them to last so long, but they definitely held up. My 1st one is close to 6 years old now and still going strong. Great product!

Works great. We have used it several time for in-house catering and it work great and being able to just roll it down the hall makes it even better.

Purchased two of these for our new event space. They heat up rapidly and hold the heat well. The only "downside" is the humidity water reservoir is welded into the bottom of the oven, resulting in having to use a bunch of paper towels and a cup to "bail out" the water instead of just picking it up and dumping it.

As a proofing and heating cabinet it works excellently... the only reason it earned 4/5 stars is its construction is a bit flimsy. The clear door is very thin plastic - scratches easily.... there is no mechanism to hold the door open... and the magnet to hold it closed is pretty weak. Asides for those small issues - I am very satisfied with my purchase.

We use this cabinet for holding our hot food in the kitchen before we transport it to our catering site. Excellent quality. Easy to adjust holding temperature and have never had a problem with the cabinet maintaining its temperature. There is also an adjustment dial for humidity control.

Purchased this holding to hold our food item in between serving to the require temperature cook food is to be held. This has an extra humidity control the non insulated warmer does not. I purchased both warmer and this one does a better job at holding the temperature that it's set for; however, you have to keep watch on the temperature setting at the bottom and adjust occasionally temperature tend to rise and drop depending on the food you put it it along with how often it's open.

This is really good for our small business. Easy to use and very easy to clean. We love it and recommend to other small bakeries.

This product has worked really well for me. I use it to hold my pizzas at temp while they are being held for our guests. The only small problem is the bar that is in the middle of the unit. I'm sure it is not a huge problem for most, but since I stack multiple boxes it does hinder my organization only a bit.
