SmartHold® Humidified Holding cabinets

It’s a simple equation: more hold time means less wasted food. With the SmartHold from Henny Penny, you can keep foods moist and ready to serve longer without sacrificing freshness or presentation. The secret? SmartHold humidity control. Now you can precisely maintain any humidity level from 10% to 90%. This patented system links water pan heat, fans and ventilation in a closed loop control, giving you the ability to adjust humidity levels in one-percent increments.

SmartHold is also incredibly easy to use. Simple touch pad controls reduce training time and mistakes. Programmable countdown timers can be set separately for each tray. The unit automatically alerts operators to low water levels.

See how SmartHold can make your employees and your facility more efficient than ever. It’s the ideal holding solution to pair with FlexFusion combi cooking and when cooking in quantity ahead of time for smooth peak period service.
