Designed for Point-of-Purchase (POP) at convenience stores and chain restaurants, these models are also perfect for “on-the-go” operations.
FWE’s latest advancement of Low Temperature Cook & Hold Oven (LCHR-1220-4) is sized perfectly for smaller volume operations or volume servers who require constant replenishment. It fits well in countertop use or built-in applications. Size, controls, construction and weight make this solution one of the easiest to operate and maintain.
This versatile and compact oven keeps product moist and juicy for greater yield while retaining more flavor. Once the cooking process is finished, the same LCHR oven can automatically switch into “holding mode” to keep products hot and delicious for hours.
As with all Food Warming Equipment, this compact Cook and Hold oven is built sturdy and is highly mobile. They are perfect solution for on-site or off-premise events and do not require a hood for ventilation.
Look details on additional FWE equipment that is designed to provide kitchen solutions for compact operations in upcoming months.

We are especially grateful to hear from our customers who work to make a positive impact in their community. That’s why, when we heard from our customers at The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan (FBEM), we jumped at the opportunity to see how our equipment was helping to feed thousands of children each day!
Behind the Scenes:
The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan was founded in 1981 and has grown to partner with more than 400 hunger relief agencies that serve the more than 300,000 hungry people in Eastern Michigan. FBEM Director of Culinary Services, Craig Brown turned to FWE for reliable kitchen equipment when their organization partnered with the Michigan Head Start Program.
As part of this new program, FBEM will be cooking and sending close to 3,000 meals to students across Eastern Michigan every day. They were searching for holding cabinets to not only keep the food warm, but healthy and favorable too!
Problem and Solution:
Cooking and storing over 3,000 meals a day can be tricky – that’s where FWE came in! The situation at the FBEM presented a unique opportunity for our team because they required large bulk food retherming equipment that was both versatile and affordable. It also had to fit into their existing infrastructure – meaning, it had to be ventless.
With that in mind, we worked with Craig and his team to fit their facilities with nine FWE Retherm Ovens (model, RH-6). The versatility behind these ovens allows the schools to prepare hot meals in advance without having to purchase a hood, which because of the price, would have halted the entire program. FWE’s ventless cooking alternatives are the perfect option for those hoping to upgrade their equipment without overhauling their entire kitchen.
Above & Beyond:
We didn’t just set up our equipment and leave; we’re with our customer from start to finish! With assistance from Acosta’s Master Chef Kevin Gawronski and FBEM Chef Joe Gerlach, we helped develop a restructured menu that could be perfectly executed with the new FWE equipment. Since implementing our equipment and participating in the Michigan Head Start Program, Chef Joe has noticed their new FWE equipment was having other benefits outside of food quality alone:
“This food is not only feeding the children, they are using it as a learning tool for such things as manners and etiquette,” explained Chef Joe.
“Each student learns where and how to properly place their napkins, plates, forks, and spoons, before enjoying their family style lunch each day.”

The Illinois BBQ Alliance is… a community of barbecue friends, part of a much larger community. A community in which people occasionally need the kind of help that a group of BBQ cooks is uniquely equipped to provide.
Helping to feed people In need… when natural disasters strike. Large groups of people are often without food, water, or shelter for extended periods while cities and towns rebuild their infrastructures and families rebuild their lives. And while aid organizations exist to try to bring essential supplies, none may be as well-equipped to feed masses of people as a group of BBQers. With their catering trucks, mobile rigs, and cooking expertise, a small team of well-coordinated BBQers can feed tens of thousands of people in need.
We want to be there… for communities and individuals in need of some help. Whether that is a warm meal or a smiling face, we believe that we can provide a little relief, help meet basic needs, and offer moral support wherever it is needed most.
That’s the stuff that makes a community great. Please join us.
