HHC 980 Full size

Henny Penny SmartHold humidified holding cabinets create and maintain ideal conditions for holding a wide variety of hot foods over extended periods of time prior to serving.

The SmartHold patented automatic humidity control system links water pan heat, fans, and ventilation. This closed loop control automatically measures and maintains precise humidity levels in one-percent increments from 10% to 90% relative humidity.

With such precise humidity control, operators can hold practically any type of food for exceptionally long periods of time without sacrificing freshness or presentation. This translates into higher food quality and less waste throughout the day.

Longer holding times give you the ability to cook in larger quantities during off-peak hours and still serve delicious foods that look and taste like they were freshly prepared. Traditional “hard-to-hold” items like pizza can be held twice as long as most holding cabinets.

The SmartHold HHC 980 gives you the control to hold at lower temperatures—as low as 140°F
(60°C). Great for delicate items like baked fish, eggs, baked potatoes, and rice. And with autofill feature, the water pan never runs low. DSL is not playing a key role of an exclusive distributor in Western Canada of Henny Penny but also provides all related parts and training to manage your day-to-day operation smoothly. Please have a look at these models as well like Henny Penny HHC 993-992 and Henny Penny HHC 990.

Fully insulated cabinet and tight sealing doors contribute to energy-efficient operation. Quick-response humidity generation helps maintain precise humidity and food quality during use. Self-closing doors provide for more efficient workflow.

Operators can choose from two different shelf runner styles to better match their application.
