Bain-marie pots are a great way to keep soups, stews, and sauces warm on your steam table. The Crestware 3.5 Qt. commercial bain-marie pot is perfect for au jus and other sauces, or use it in a cold food well on your salad bar for dressings. Constructed of 18/8 stainless steel, the Crestware BM03 conducts heat and cold well, distributing temperature evenly, so you can keep sauces and other delicate dishes warm and fresh without burning them, or cold throughout. The polished mirror finish is both attractive and easy to clean. This medium stainless steel bain-marie pot can be used in a steam table, a commercial double boiler, in a hot food well on your buffet line, or a cold food well on your salad bar. And you can use it to store the contents in your reach-in or walk-in refrigerator. Cool hot foods properly, then seal hot or cold foods with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. You also can pair bain-marie pots like this with a lid that traps heat and steam to keep your food hot and fresh. Choose a solid lid or one that’s notched for a serving spoon or ladle.
