Holding hot food before serving it

If you're too young to remember the Flying Burrito Brothers, you're too young to remember the Salton Hot Trays. They held everything at a perfect temp before serving, and doubled as plate warmers. I don't think Salton makes them any more, but a little Googling will find you something similar.I'm in mourning still for mine.

I inherited my grandmother's Salton tray. Still works like a dream.

The Salton trays show up at charity rummage sales fairly often; I have three for hosting buffets.

I finally disposed of my Mother's three Salton trays about 10 years ago and then needed them big time. :shock: I've been able to buy two at second hand stores.

We often use crock pots to keep stuff hot, especially for Chinese feasts. Perfect for soup and other liquidy dishes.

No significant quality lost for mash when you make it, store it, and heat it up and add butter and salt while heating it.

The perfect vichyssoise is served hot and made with equal parts of butter to potato.

Salton and other hot trays show up on eBay and Ruby Lane, etc., frequently. I broke the glass top on one of mine and was able to replace it immediately.

Some have a "hot spot" to keep some things at a higher temp - often used for fondues back in the day...

"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett
