The optional stone insert of the Recessed Top offers an upscale presentation as well as the flexibility to meet the needs of all your hot/warm items.

The optional stone insert offers a sleek presentation as well as the flexibility to meet the needs of all your hot or cold items. In addition to the versatility enjoyed with our hot and cold only merchandisers, our switchable appliances give you even more flexibility between temperatures with the same ability to switch menu items, temperatures, and delivery mechanism between day parts.

Many of our customers love to use the frost function in the morning for fruit cups, yogurt, or pre-package parfaits for the breakfast crowd before switching to a pre-packaged burger, nachos, or sandwiches for lunch. In keeping with the concept of easy and efficient, these merchandisers are also designed around the most common sheet pan sizes for quick and easy restocking during the busy meal periods.
