Warming Drawers

Hi Chef Kurt here. People often neglect the warming drawer in their kitchen plans…Most customers will say “But Kurt can’t I just keep my food warm in the oven?”.

Well the oven is a larger chamber in which allows the moisture in the food to evaporate and dry the food out. Most ovens do not go down to a low enough temperature and may continue to cook the food.

It is a great way to help the family on the go, keep items warm in the event that everyone cannot eat dinner at the same time. There are several brands offering them and they can be covered by a panel to blend into you kitchen cabinetry. The best location to install one is under the cook top. This is more convenient since you do not have to walk to another location.

Warming drawers can be found on most higher end ranges. Actually Frigidaire seems to be the cheapest at about a thousand or they can be purchased independently for starting $699
