The power and performance of a full size warmer in a compact, under counter holding cabinet

The PHTT-4 is the most compact of our most popular Clymate IQ series. FWE has taken the very best of the full size precision heating and humidity cabinet and condensed it down to the most compact size to date.

The PHTT-4 allows you to hold crisper, more savory and textured product longer with better flavor by keeping set temperatures and humidity levels with the tightest range.

The PHTT-4 can accommodate 4, full size 18” x 26” sheet pans and is perfect for under counter placement with a height of only 32 inches. Built with the standard features of the full size cabinet, this compact design has the same easy-to-read, easy-to-set, color-coded controls and allows the operator to set the unit from 10% to 90% relative humidity and 90°F (32°C) to 200°F (93°C), faster than ever. And faster heat recovery ensures a rebound to set heat and humidity levels when doors are open for access by operators and servers.

Adjustable tray slides and self-closing hinges are standard. The unit is also provided with a large water reservoir eliminating the need for constant re-filling. The water pan is removable and slides are fully adjustable and removable for thorough interior cleaning. The flexibility of this design allows for a wide range of special features and accessories such as casters, doors, handles slides and more.

NEWS RELEASE- Febuary 7, 2017 New CONTROLLED VENTING for FWE Heated Holding Cabinets

Heated Holding with Precise Humidity made even better with CONTROLLED VENTING (CV)

Food Warming Equipment’s (FWE) latest advancement has taken the best Heated Holding Cabinet, with Precise Humidity regulation, and made it even better with CONTROLLED VENTING (CV).

PHTT-12-CV
PHTT-12-CV (Heated Holding with Humidity)

New, CONTROLLED VENTING is a feature developed by FWE for the PRECISE HUMIDITY TEMPERATURE TECHNOLOGY (PHTT) Series of Heated Holding Cabinets. The CV feature now recognizes excess moisture that is often created by the carry over cooking and holding of finished food products, loaded in a hot holding cabinet for later serving.

With applications that range from the largest fast food chain restaurants to the most secluded country roadhouse, the PHTT Series with CONTROLLED VENTING is the perfect solution for crisp food products such as breaded chicken and fish, BBQ products with bark, and prime rib or lamb with caramelization and crust.

Products fresh from the fryer or oven often release steam and additional moisture into the Heated Holding Cabinet’s environment. This can effect a change in flavor and texture, more often on products with a crisp breading, crust or smoked products with a bark. CONTROLLED VENTING evacuates any excess humidity, giving you greater command of the internal heated cabinet environment, keeping the average temperature and humidity within a tighter range of set values.

The Clymate IQ® , Heated Holding Cabinet with Precision Humidity Control (PHTT Series), takes much of guesswork out of holding foods and provides consistent, professional quality results every time. Making crisp products stay crisp and moist products stay moist. The PHTT Series with CV holds products with better color, better flavor and better texture than ever before. With the quickest temperature recovery, heat and humidity loss is greatly mitigated from exposure, while opening the cabinet repeatedly during peak servicing.

The Killers

This post-punk alternative band formed in Las Vegas, NV back in 2001 by members Brandon Flowers and Dave Keuning who originally found each other through a newspaper advert. Since their inception, The Killers have had massive success and headlined venues such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, the Hollywood Bowl and Wembley Stadium.

Their list of awards and accomplishments are extensive. With an MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist under their belt, they were also nominated for three Grammies. Songs from their debut album Hot Fuss have garnered several platinum hits including; “Mr. Brightside“, “Somebody Told Me” and “All These Things That I’ve Done.”

With a sound, that is not easily defined, their music incorporates inspirations of pop theatricality along with an intense retrospective.  Since their onset in the early 2000’s they share the same inspirations of bands such as; She Wants Revenge, Franz Ferdinand, Modest Mouse (and others of the early to mid noughties) that borrow inspirations from the likes of Oasis, The Smiths and artists such as David Bowie.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see this intimate, VIP dinner and concert performance of the band named at the World Music Awards “The World’s Best Selling New Group” in 2005.
