Product Details

Simply charge the banquet cart for an hour, load your meals, and then go!

The first Carter-Hoffman banquet carts designed to hold and deliver "kitchen fresh" meals were manufactured a half a century ago - and the rest of the industry has yet to catch up! No other banquet carts, even today, offer as many features designed to serve better food at such a low cost. Virtually all the world's leading chefs and food service directors continue to rely upon Cater-Hoffman to give their banquet operations a competitive edge! Doesn't it make sense to give your banquet service the same advantages?

Operators use canned fuel in banquet carts despite the fact that they were never designed to handle it. As a result, they've put up with as much as a 33% loss in capacity with a bottom shelf too hot to use. And they've served dished too hot or too cold because interior circulation with canned fuel is inherently uneven. No more! This EquaHeat banquet cart from Carter-Hoffman overcomes both problems. This innovative cart provides equal heat and storage capacity, using either electric power or canned fuel. When using electric power, this banquet cart has a high performance, removable heater blower system that gives performs with fast heat up, recovery, and even heat distribution throughout the cabinet. The heater is even removable without tools!

Unplug your banquet service without the expense, hassle, and risk of open flame with EquaHeat Banquet Carts. Until now, extended holding in banquet carts required one of two methods: a continuous electrical supply to operate the heater OR canned heat. Carter-Hoffmann's EquaHeat Banquet Carts eliminate these limitations with an exclusive heat retention system. Just charge the system for an hour, load your meals, and then go! The heating system allows you to unplug your banquets and take them anywhere, without the need for electricity or canned heat. There's no expensive fuel to buy, no fire hazard, no scorched food or plates, no time spent placing and lighting cans and no fumes to affect food flavor. Meals will stay at serving temperatures for up to two hours.

This banquet cart's cabinet is constructed of double-wall stainless steel, the strongest, most durable material for long life. This banquet cart has high density, 1" thick fiberglass insulation in the walls and door, with 1-1/2" thick insulation on top for maximum heat retention. The heavy duty stainless steel base frame has 12 gauge caster bolsters with a perimeter frame for rugged use and added durability. The pre-plated food carrier has completely welded, turned-in seam construction that adds rigidity to the entire cabinet and eliminates raw edges for ease of cleaning and safety. This food delivery cabinet features a wrap-around aluminum bumper with a non-marking gray vinyl insert. This bumper protects the cart and facility walls from damage.

The removable wire shelves are welded, nickel-plated with reinforced shelf clips. The shelves are sturdy for heavy plate loads and removable for cleaning. This banquet cart has 6" diameter, industrial-grade casters with a polyurethane tread that are long-lasting and easy to roll for maximum load and minimum maintenance. This cart has two rigid casters and two swivel casters that are fitted with brakes. The casters are mounted to the base in an offset wheel-ahead pattern for easy rolling over uneven surfaces.

Other features for this banquet cart are:

  • 16-1/2" clearance between the three shelves
  • Sliding door latches and concealed hinges
  • Preheats to 160°F in approximately 20 minutes
  • Dial thermometer with remote sensing bulb, mounted to door
