Many people purchase an oven from major appliance sales in Meed, CO and then begin to use it without ever knowing how to properly use the drawer at the bottom of it. In fact, the vast majority of people who own a wall oven never even know what it is called because a wall oven will not be equipped with one.
This oven component known as the warming drawer has a very specific purpose and should be regularly used when cooking. Here is how you can begin to properly use your oven’s warming drawer.
Keep a Fresh Meal Warm
In an ideal world, you will be able to serve a meal as soon as it is finished. After all, food is at its best when it is fresh out of the oven. Unfortunately, life isn’t always this perfect and sometimes you might have to postpone eating a meal for upwards of 15 minutes after it is finished.
Rather than keeping it cooking in the oven and risk it being overcooked, you can simply take the food out of the oven and place it in the warming drawer. There will be a lot of warm air from the oven circulating through here, but not enough that it will continue cooking the food.
Making Plates Warm
There are very few instances where you will want your serving plates to be a significantly different temperature than the food that you are serving. This is going to result in the meal cooling off much faster than you want it to. That is why you should place the plates in the warming drawer once the meal is almost finished cooking. This will help them to be nice and warm by the time that you are ready to dish up the food. It’s the same effect that many restaurants achieve by chilling the glasses they serve their beer in.
