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 Read More

With humidity levels adjustable from 30% to 100% and 9 different temperature settings, you'll be able to accomplish the right results every time! A simple toggle switch lets you select between the "heat" and "proof" modes, while the vibrant LED temperature display makes it easy to keep an eye on things from across the room.
The rugged aluminum interior contains fixed pan slides set on 1 1/2" increments. You can easily place up to 36 full size sheet pans on whichever level is convenient.
Stainless Steel Water Pan
To use the proofing mode, simply fill the pan with water, select the proofing mode and your desired humidity level!
This holding and proofing cabinet's crystal-clear door makes it easy to see what's inside without opening it. Magnetic catches plus a tight-fitting gasket keep the door closed when it's supposed to be, and hot air in!
Thanks to this cabinet's 5" poly casters, you can load it up in your prep area, and then roll it out closer to the serving line to keep backups close at hand. Locks on the front wheels will keep it in place once you've rolled it right where you want it.
Built-in corner bumpers protect your walls from scuffs and bumps while you're rolling from one area to another.
An integrated cord wrap on the back will keep the power cord off the floor and out of the way while you roll the cabinet.
Customer Q&AAsk a Question
In proofing mode, once steam is generated from the water contained in the bottom water pan, adjustments can be made to release heat in order to reach the desired temperature. If you are trying to proof at low temperatures, the desired proofing temperature must be warmer than the ambient temperature in your kitchen.
This Avantco heated holding/proofing cabinet operates at the following temperatures in heat and proof modes:
Heat Mode: 80°F – 185°F

People Talk About:cabinet easy full love size warm food great kitchen unit
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
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.
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.
We use this 5 days a week to keep pretzels warm. It died after 7 months and began smelling like burnt plastic. Buyer beware. Waiting to hear if I can return or get a warrantied repair. Worst 900 I've spent.

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.
its cheap for a reason!!!! poor quality and made in china. i have had 4 replacements sent to me and they all failed! it would be nice it it actually worked but now I have one expensive storage cabinet.
We appreciate your review, Andrew. We wish this product would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
We have had this in our kitchen for a while and it is perfect for our setup. We have a mutli-use kitchen so this is a great asset to have.
Product worked well for just over a year - Got 2 months out of the 1 year warranty and the product stopped working. Not happy with the product and will not buy another one.
Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
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.
I purchased this proffered and it only worked for one day and now it will not come on ...... can not reach anyone about warranty on it

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
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!
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.
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.
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
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...!
