The market research analysis categorizes the global commercial drawer warmer market into three major end-user segments. They are:

  • Restaurants and hotels
  • Bakeries and pizzerias
  • Others

Restaurants and hotels

This segment includes quick service restaurants (QSRs), full-service restaurants (FSRs), fast casual restaurants (FCRs), and hotels. Many premium hotels and FSRs prepare food and store it in blast chillers to keep the pre-cooked food fresh. Once the order is placed, the pre-cooked food is warmed in drawer warmers at specific temperatures by using thermostat temperature control. Various food items such as baked potato, vegetables, and bread can be heated quickly and served hot.

Many restaurants and hotels procure high-end drawer warmers that are aesthetically designed and go with the kitchen decor. In addition, restaurants and hotels that have space constraints prefer to use built-in drawer warmers as it can significantly save the countertop space for other kitchen equipment.

Bakeries and pizzerias

The bakeries segment is one of the significant users of the commercial drawer warmer, as the bakeries use the equipment to serve various bread preparations, croissants, pretzels, buns, and rolls. Most of the bakeries prepare their baked items in advance, and during the peak selling hours, these bakeries tend to use the drawer warmers to heat and serve the food warm.

Similarly, some of the pizzerias use the drawer warmer to warm different kinds of pizzas. Pizza chain brands that provide pizza delivery systems use drawer warmers to deliver warm pizzas at the doorstep. For instance, in 2015, Domino’s Pizza unveiled its delivery car service named DXP in the US, which delivers pizzas at the customer's doorstep. Pizzerias also offer appetizers and side dishes such as nachos, mozzarella sticks, tortillas, and dough bites. These appetizers are usually pre-cooked, and the operators use drawer warmers to heat the pre-cooked side dishes and serve them fresh.

“Manufacturers also provide moisture-control mechanisms in drawer warmers, so that dry appetizers like nachos remain crispy and crunchy while serving,” says Manu.


The others segment includes catering companies, cafes, clubs, and pubs. Catering companies provide food items at various events, weddings, and celebrations and require significant use of food warming equipment such as drawer warmers. Vendors of drawer warmers are improving product design to allow end-users to store the food in the warmer in the same pot or dish in which it was cooked. This can save time for the operators by reducing the need to transfer the food from one pan to another. The casters under the drawer warmer provide mobility to the equipment.
