trapped underneath it. This trapped heat can upset the
performance of the Warming Drawer parts.
The purpose of the Warming Drawer is to hold hot cooked
foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food; cold
food cannot be heated or cooked in the Warming Drawer.
When warming foods in oven safe glass and/or glass ceramic
container, a higher temperature setting may be needed
compared to heating in metal containers
ꢀ To avoid excess condensation inside the drawer, foods may
be covered with aluminum foil. This will also help keep
the food from drying out.
Opening the drawer during use and/or adding more items
will allow the hot air to escape and may require more time
for the temperature in the drawer to stabilize.
Be sure to maintain safe food temperature. The USDA recom-
mends holding hot food at 140˚Fꢀorꢀwarmer.
