TIME MACHINES

The key to quality food holding is more than the simple application of heat. The secret is to preserve as much natural product moisture as possible, which is exactly what the gentle holding capability of Halo Heat® is designed to accomplish. Halo Heat keeps hot foods at safe, even temperatures while retaining the maximum amount of product moisture. Whether your holding needs are large or small, Halo Heat hot food holding cabinets are available in a wide variety of models and are able to support any type of food preparation by providing the longest possible holding life.

WE JUST CAN’T KEEP A SECRET — HALO HEAT KEEPS FOOD LONGER

While many other holding cabinets use steam to try to keep food moist, we feel the food’s natural moisture is best for maintaining quality.

What makes Alto-Shaamholding cabinets unique is electric thermal cable that is wrapped on three sides of the cabinet between the exterior casing and the stainless steel

inside walls. This gentle, radiant heat source provides soft, even heat distribution without cold spots, hot spots, or hot air movement to dry the product. Halo Heat is specifically designed to provide significantly longer holding life, resulting in less product waste and greater product quality in prolonged holding situations. Halo Heat holding

equipment can be a time management aid by extending preparation times outside of peak preparation hours.

TIME AND MONEY IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS.

IS YOUR HOLDING CABINET YOUR FOOD’S WORST ENEMY?

Moisture is the key to maintaining food quality. This is why choosing the right holding cabinet is so important. In working to keep food warm, some holding cabinets can actually rob food of its natural moisture and taste.

One of the culprits in robbing food flavor is circulation fans. Think of it as a hair dryer for your food. Even though it’s circulating warm air, it’s still drying out everything in its path.

Another flavor-robberis steam. Some holding cabinets use steam to compensate for air movement, but steam can further dilute what little flavor is left.

Alto-Shaamholding cabinets are designed to seal in moisture and flavor. The simple application of even, gentle heat in a sealed environment is all your food needs to be served hot and at its peak of flavor.

WORLD WIDE CONTROL

The optional HACCP Documentation software package automatically records the details of every food holding process in complete compliance with HACCP requirements. All relevant temperature data is recorded and stored and is accessible in both written and graphic formats by individual procedure or total daily production.

Both optional software packages can be connected to electronically controlled holding cabinets that are equipped with a probe as well as a variety of additional Alto-Shaamelectronic equipment models, including Combitherm® combination oven/steamers, Halo Heat cook/hold ovens and more.
