Warming drawers are best described as a cook’s best friend. A warming drawer is a must-have for cooks who entertain often and need to keep meals warm before serving. Warming drawers can also be used when you have run out of countertop space and need to place food that is ready to serve. Warming drawers have other benefits besides warming food. Warming drawers can also keep food crispy and the right texture until the food is ready to serve.
