Predominantly used to display and keep food warm prior to serving, the bain-marie has rightly been enjoying a boom in popularity in recent years due to their fantastic ability to keep food heated at a constant temperature.
The bain-marie has become synonymous with canteens, carveries and fast food restaurants that need quick access to pre-prepared foods but don't want to compromise on consistency and quality.
By holding food at a consistent temperature that doesn't fluctuate, you can extend the shelf life and massively reduce your food waste. Not only that, but a bain marie (or series of bain maries) could help maximise your potential profits as a result.
Used as part of a food display, combined with merchandising or heated gantry units, a bain marie can help entice your customers and gives them piece of mind when choosing a range of dishes.
Perfect for a range of food, with options for both wet and dry food, and either gas or electric-powered units available; a bain marie could be exactly what your kitchen or serving space has been missing.
Bain maries can hold a wide variety of foods such as gravies, sauces, soups, meats, vegetables and more for up to several hours. But what is the difference?
Dry heat bain maries are suitable for a wide range of food service applications, with wet heat bain maries being perfect for a wide range of delicate products such as custard, gravies, soups and cream sauces.
What works best for your particular business is bound by what you plan on serving, with units available that offer both dry and wet heat options to give you a better range of serving options.
