    Default Warming Drawer - What do you use??

    Our old oven and warming drawer came to end of life. As much as I looked, I couldn't find an oven with a traditional warming drawer.

    We bought a fancy double oven, thinking we can use one as a warming drawer, but I can't find a way of switching the fan off.
    I have read the manual and asked other people with the same oven, and apparently you can't switch the fan off. This dries out the food horribly, even covered with tin hat material.

    What do you use to keep food warm??

    We eat when the food is ready, I've never put my food in a warming drawer. Had one of those hot plate /food warmers that never got used, think it's in the house somewhere, try find a 2nd hand one?

    Just use the oven, set to the lowest temp before thermostat comes on. About 60C on mine but its an old one.
    Dont take anything I say as actual advice or fact. I dont.

    No. The OP said trying to use his oven as a warmer dried everything out.

    I also prefer to eat straight off the fire, BUT sometimes when "jou vark vriende" come visit, they tend to get more thirsty than hungry..

    That's when a warming drawer is handy.

    Never even thought off disconnecting the fan. Thanks. Wil ask one of my "vark vriende" to visit!!!

    We sold our electric Defy stove that had a warming drawer at the bottom. It was very handy when making big breakfasts or any food where certain cooked items were done before others.

    Got a gas stove now with no warming drawer, so I just put the stuff in the oven on the lowest setting with the door slightly open. Works.

    If it's purely for braaivleis and vark vriende, see below, look no further. Or chicken from the weber, cut quickly and close.
