Specialty Options for Heated Pizza Holding Cabinets
Heated pizza holding cabinets have two specialty options to choose from. They can be purchased in either pass thru or reach-in models. The type of holding cabinet you need will depend on your business and where you plan to place the unit. For example, if you plan to set the cabinet against a wall, a reach-in unit would be the best choice. Reach in cabinets let you open the door only from the front, which allows the back to be placed securely against a wall.
Pass thru cabinets would be best if you plan to put the cabinet anywhere that can be accessed from both sides. Popular placements of heated pizza holding cabinets are behind the counter of pizza businesses, separating the front where the register is from the kitchen area. Pass thru units allow the pizzas to be placed in the cabinet from the back and taken out from the front when a customer orders a pizza. These are ideal for maximizing productivity.
Door Styles for Heated Pizza Holding Cabinets
Commercial pizza holding cabinets come in a variety of different door styles to choose from, based on your specific business needs and preferences. Doors are available in full clear or solid or dutch clear or solid varieties.
Full clear doors can be purchased on both full and half height models and are constructed of clear glass to allow you to view the contents of the unit without having to open the cabinet, preventing warm air loss, thus saving energy.
Full solid doors are available on both full and half height models as well and are constructed from stainless steel to make cleaning quick and easy. These full solid doors are well insulated to keep pizzas warm and ready to serve.

Dutch solid doors are found only on full height models as well because of the height of the unit. Like full height solid doors, these doors are constructed from stainless steel and are easy to clean and maintain. Dutch doors are always two smaller doors to allow for separation of products.
