Hot Food Holding Cabinets that have earned the ENERGY STAR are 60% more energy-efficient than standard models.
Earning the ENERGY STAR
Hot food holding cabinet models that earn the ENERGY STAR must meet a maximum idle energy rate of 40 watts/ft3. This means that ENERGY STAR qualified hot food holding cabinets are more efficient at maintaining food temperature while using less energy. Models that meet this requirement incorporate better insulation, reducing heat loss, and may also offer additional energy saving devices such as magnetic door gaskets, auto-door closures, or dutch doors. The insulation of the cabinet also offers better temperature uniformity within the cabinet from top to bottom.
