WHAT ARE ALTERNATE WAYS TO KEEP FOOD WARM BEFORE SERVING?
If you’re short on oven space, consider using a disposable chafing dish, steam table, warming tray or a slow cooker to help keep food ready to serve. Chafing dishes and steam tables use a heat source beneath trays filled with water to create steam that heats the serving dishes above. Warming trays provide a consistently heated surface to place food on, and slow cookers often include a “warm” setting that keeps food at just the right temperature.
If you frequently entertain, you might consider purchasing a warming drawer that can be built into your kitchen cabinets. Select KitchenAid® warming drawers let you adjust the moisture levels in the drawer to accommodate different types of food and help prevent drying. Plus, select KitchenAid® warming drawers include slow cook and bread proofing functions for even more versatility.
