Steam Tables are a common site at most banquet facilities and buffet style restaurants. In particular, any foodservice venue where the customer is served a portion as they go through a food line. Steam tables are typically full units with legs and under shelves or storage cabinets beneath the heating or cooling wells. They are available in 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 well models.
Food Wells are typically smaller units that do not have their own legs or stand. They also come in multiple well models ranging from 2 to 8 wells. However, food wells are designed to be installed either as drop ins or under mounted units in an existing counter or work table to add service options. They come in many configurations and capacities so you can find the exact unit to fit your location.
