Warming Drawers Buying Guide

Warming drawers are designed to keep food warm after it's been cooked. They are ideal for families who eat dinner at various times or for people who entertain often and prepare multiple courses. Warming drawers can also be used in master suites to warm towels.

Types of Warming Drawers

Types of Warming Drawers

You can purchase a stand-alone warming drawer or a range that includes a warming drawer below the main oven. Consider whether you have the space for a separate drawer or if a range with a built-in warming drawer would be enough to suit your needs. Electric warming drawers plug into a standard 120-volt outlet and don't use as much electricity as a full-size oven.

Standard Warming Drawers

These warming drawers can be installed separately or in conjunction with other appliances. They offer more flexibility in terms of placement and usually feature more temperature and humidity settings than ranges with warming drawers or ovens with warming functionality.

Ranges with Warming Drawers

Some gas and electric ranges come with a warming drawer included. Usually the warming drawer is below the main oven. If space is limited or you don't plan to use the warming drawer all that often, this might be your best option.

Outdoor Warming Drawers

If you're designing an outdoor kitchen, you'll need to look for a model that's UL approved for outdoor use. To ensure these models stand up to the elements, look for weather-resistant stainless-steel construction.

Product Features

Product Features

When shopping for a warming drawer, look for features that allow you to control temperature and humidity for better food texture and flavor. Higher-end models offer more settings and extra features.

Electronic Touch Controls

Electronic controls allow you to precisely set the temperature to suit your preferences. Most controls are hidden behind the drawer front.

Variable Temperature Settings

Many models come with several different temperature settings so you can keep the food warm or hot, depending on your needs.

Moist/Crisp Settings

A slide control on many models allows you to set the humidity level so you can keep bacon crisp or bread moist. Although some foods tend to taste better at a specific setting, this is mostly a matter of personal preference.

Removable Half-Rack

This feature gives you greater flexibility when positioning items in your warming drawer by allowing you to store two rows of items.

Proof Setting

This feature lets you select a low-temperature moist setting that you can use to proof bread.

Slow-Cook Function

A few models let you use your warming drawer as a slow cooker as well.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

When shopping for a warming drawer, consider whether you want a separate warming drawer or if a range with a warming drawer would suffice. If you opt for a separate warming drawer, its placement will likely determine the size you need. Also look for models that enhance safety.

Size

Warming drawers are usually sold in 27- and 30-inch widths, but 24- and 36-inch widths are also available. These sizes match the standard widths of kitchen cabinets and wall ovens to simplify installation. If you're not planning an extensive remodel, select a size that can easily be installed within existing cabinetry. Also consider how much food you'll typically be warming; small models can hold four standard-size dinner plates, while large models can hold nine standard plates.

Finish

Many warming drawers feature a stainless-steel finish for a restaurant-style look. Black and white, as well as a variety of other colors, are also available. Many models allow you to install a custom cabinet panel on front to fully integrate the warming drawer with surrounding cabinetry.

Placement

A warming drawer can be placed anywhere a sliding drawer can fit, including under ovens, cooktops, and other appliances. It's best to position the warming drawer near a range or oven to make transferring food easy and safe.

Safety

Be sure to look for safety features that can give you peace of mind. Indicator lights are standard on most models; these lights show you when the warming drawer is in use. Also look for a model with an automatic shut-off feature, which will turn the warming drawer off after a certain amount of time. Fully extendable drawers help prevent burns when you are removing dishes from the warming drawer.
