Steam tables are used in food service to keep food at a certain temperature and in a certain atmosphere. This can be done by the use of steam, hot water, or heated gases. Food wells are used to keep food at a certain temperature, but they are not designed to have a certain atmosphere. Most food wells are designed to keep food at a lower temperature than the surrounding air.

Steam tables, food wells, and other types of food and drink service areas are typically made from stainless steel. This is due to the fact that stainless steel is a very durable type of metal that is resistant to corrosion and rusting. When these tables are in use, they are exposed to moisture, heat, and friction. All of these things can cause damage to the surface of the metal, which is why stainless steel is the best option for these types of tables.
