Operation
WARNING: Electrical Shock Hazard. Keep water and other liquids from entering the inside of the unit. Do not overfill pans or trays. Liquid could contact the electrical
components and cause a short circuit or an electrical shock.
NOTICE: For best performance, prevent drafts or room air currents from flowing over the food pans.
NOTICE: Drain the water in the well(s) before switching from hot mode to cold mode.
NOTICE: Do not use food pans deeper than 6 (15.2 cm).

Cold Mode

  1. Pre-chill the Well.
  2. Flip the selector switch down. Note: This equipment features a bump start, which starts the compressor in stages to protect the components. When the equipment is switched ON, the compressor will cycle on and off three times. After the third cycle, the equipment should function as normal.

Hold Cold Food

  1. Place containers of properly chilled food into the pre-chilled well.
    NOTICE: Do NOT mound the food in the pans or elevate the food pans. This will remove the protection provided by the blanket of cold air and nullify NSF compliance.

  2. For best temperature maintenance and food quality, regularly check the food temperature and stir the food.
    NOTICE: Monitor food temperature closely for food safety. The United States Public Health Service recommends that cold food be held at a maximum of 41 ºF (5 ºC) to help prevent bacteria growth.

When Finished Using the Equipment

  1. Flip the selector switch to the center position to turn off the well.
  2. Remove the food containers.

Hot Mode
CAUTION
Burn Hazard
Hot water and steam in the well can burn skin. Use protective gloves, mitts or potholders when removing food containers or covers. Hot food can also cause burns. Handle hot food carefully.

Pre-heat the Wells

  1. Pour clean, fresh water into the bottom of the well to a depth of about 1” (2.5 cm).
    NOTICE: Always maintain water in the well. Do not over fill.

  2. Flip the selector switch up.

  3. Cover the well with empty food containers or covers. Turn the heat control to the maximum heat setting. Preheat for 60 minutes.

Hold Hot Food

  1. Place containers of hot food product, above 140 °F (60 °C), into the preheated well.

  2. Reduce the heat setting to a level that will maintain a safe holding temperature and maintain food quality.
    NOTICE: Monitor food temperature closely for food safety. The United States Public Health Service recommends that hot food be held at a minimum of 140 ºF (60 ºC) to help prevent bacteria growth. Maintain correct water level and temperature setting. Periodically remove food container and check the water level. Add water if needed.

  3. Maintain the water level. Approximately every 2 hours, remove the containers of food and check the water level in the well. Add hot water to the well if needed.

When Finished Using the Equipment

  1. Flip the selector switch to the center position to turn off the well.
  2. Remove the food containers. Use gloves, mitts or pot holders to protect hands.
