Bain Maries

Bain Maries

Bain maries are designed to keep your food warm for a long time. Their system is very simple, yet effective. They have a chamber full of hot water, and a food pan placed over it. In this way, it is possible to keep the temperature at the desired level constantly. These devices can be powered either by gas or electricity, and come in freestanding and bench top versions. If you are looking for a bain marie for sale, you are in the right place.

What makes bain maries stand out?

There are several reasons that make bain maries ideal for any kitchen. First of all, they do not burn the food. Their temperature can be regulated and adjusted to make sure that they don’t exceed the boiling point. Also, the steam they generate help to keep the food moisturized. In this way, your food will taste as if it had just come out of the oven.

 

Bain maries are also popular because they distribute heat evenly. This ensures that all the food will be equally warm, avoiding those annoying hot and cold spots.

 

Key features to look for in a bain marie

  • Power source: electric bain mariesare the most common, usually 240V and do not require a lot of energy to work. Gas bain maries are less common and generally larger for kitchen duties.
  • Accessories: many bain maries do not come with GN pans. Yet, they are essential for the device to fulfil its function. So, if you find one that comes with everything included, that is a good deal.
  • Drain taps: if used for long periods of time, the chambers will need to be refilled once in a while. And when you finish using the device, you will need to empty them. So, buying a bain marie that includes a drain tap will make your life much easier, as they speed up the process and make it safer.
  • Capacity: most bain maries fit a gastronorm pan, which is usually around 20 litres. Yet, some models may have different capacities. Make sure you choose the ones that suit you best.
  • Materials: stainless steel conducts heat better and is easier to clean than other materials. Most bain maries are made with stainless steel.

Tips to make the most out of your bain marie

All bain maries include a thermostat. It is crucial that it always marks at least 60°C when in use. If the temperature is lower, the food can only be displayed for a maximum of two hours. Otherwise, it will not meet the compulsory sanitary conditions to be sold.

Also, according to the Australian Food Safety Standards, all bain maries in Australia must have a thermometer to check if the temperature is right when selling foods that could be potentially dangerous.

To ensure the safety of the device and your customers, make sure that you are always using clean, fresh water. A nice tip is to add a slice of lemon or some drops of lemon juice for better duration. It is also essential to clean the bain marie every day after use to prevent deposits from building up. When cleaning the device, it is recommended that you use hot water, soap, and a sponge. Avoid chemicals, as they may damage the stainless steel.
