Commercial hot food holding cabinet graphicHot food holding cabinets that have earned the ENERGY STAR are 65 percent more energy efficient than standard models.

This means that ENERGY STAR certified hot food holding cabinets are more efficient at maintaining food temperature while using less energy. On average, ENERGY STAR certified models can save between $75 and $370 per year, when compared on a non-certified model. 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.
