I understand the heater part, but don't understand about the restaurant steamtable container- what is that?
Can you use this for the plastic waterers to set on? Or just for metal waterers?
Plastic waters may not work as well. The steam table insert I used is a 2 gallon cylinder type that fits in soup kettle warming units. I chose this because it is stainless steel making it easy to clean,will not melt,and is low profile.I suggest appliance (oven) 40 watt bulbs since they withstand the heat inside the tin compared to regular bulbs.David
