Foods should be fully cooked and already hot before being placed on Warming Trays,
which are designed for keep-warm function only.
Our Buffet Server chafing dishes (pans only, not the lids)
may be used to cook/heat foods to serving temperature in an oven,
and then covered and transferred to the Warming Tray for keep-warm.
(NOTE: We do not recommend placing pans hotter than 200F on the black warming surface.)
