open top pastry cases

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a supplier of one of those open top REFRIGERATED pastry cases like they have in paris and having no luck. If anyone can tell me the name of the company who makes these, or where I might be able to get them in the states that would be fabulous.

Here's an example from Laduree. Pierre Herme has 'em. So does Sadahuru Aoki.

Would those cases even pass the health dept. inspection here?

I would think not, since I know that unwrapped food cannot be displayed without some sort of covering, such as a sneeze guard or whatever.

I think cases like that look really cool, but have too many drawbacks. Too much temptation for customers to touch things, and you know they will. No protection from dust particles or bugs. And I would imagine they are not the most efficient at cooling and would draw more energy, but that's just a guess. If that type of case is supposed to be self serve, then there's another can of worms I'd rather not deal with. :wacko:

If you click the #1 box after entering the site you'll seee the display cases with tops.

I would agree that a sneeze shield of some type would haveto be mandantory

Their cases are open in the back, but covered on top and in front.

the official rule from the dept of health here is that food can be displayed uncovered, as long as there is a sneeze guard or some protection from anybody (customer) touching it or sneezing on it.

I was thinking of the Bellagio cases as well. Those are just standard tube steel and glass dividers attached to the counter, with the open case you want. Great way to get around the health department issue.

Something similar is used for raw bars/fish displays (I know of the one at SeaGrill in Tacoma.) Sorry, don't know the manufacturer, but I bet Smith and Greene Restaurant supply does.
