Significance and Use
5.3 Idle energy rate and holding energy rate can be used by the food service operator to estimate energy consumption during operating periods and to consider energy consumption when choosing a drawer warmer.
1.1 This test method evaluates the preheat, idle, and holding energy consumption and temperature uniformity of drawer warmers. The food service operator can use this evaluation to select a drawer warmer and understand its energy performance and temperature uniformity. A drawer warmer is described as a commercial kitchen appliance that consists of one or more heated drawers and which is used to hold hot food (usually no greater than 200°F) that has been cooked in a separate appliance, at a specified temperature.
1.3.1 Energy input rate (10.2),
1.3.2 Energy consumption rate at maximum setting (10.2),
1.3.3 Temperature calibration (10.3),
1.3.4 Preheat energy consumption and time (10.4),
1.3.5 Idle energy rate (10.5),
1.3.6 Holding energy rate (10.6), and
1.3.7 Temperature uniformity (10.6).
