Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Bain marie:
bain-marie heat food gently and gradually to fixed temperatures, or to keep food warm over a period of time.

Difference between chafing dishes and Bain marie:
chafing dish is a portable grate raised on a tripod, and used for foods that require gentle cooking, away from the "fierce" heat of direct flames. The chafing dish could be used at table or provided with a cover for keeping food warm on a buffet, where the Bain marie is a fixed food warmer.

Boiling Table:
Large stove plate which allows you to do either smaller pots or pans for last minute preparation of the food, but also allows you to cook large pots of food, example your pap that you don’t want to prepare off site.

Deep Fryer:
Used for chips or fish. Can also be used for chicken. Ideal for small vetkoeks

Why gas and not electrical:
Gas is a better financial option rather than electricity. Electricity is not always available at all locations and yes there are options to overcome this problem like having a generator, which is a good option when it comes to Fridges and Freezers as there is a general problem with these items in gas.

Something Interesting to Know

Mobile Kitchens and Foodtrailers are notably growing in popularity in the whole of South Africa. Due to an apparent combination of economic and technological factors combined with "street food" being "hip" or "chic," there has been an increase in the number of food trailers in Southern Africa.

A food trailer or mobile kitchen isn’t just an ordinary pap and vleis kitchen you find at a construction site. These gourmet trucks' menus run the gamut of ethnic and fusion cuisine.

Often focusing on limited but creative dishes at reasonable prices, they offer customers a chance to experience food they otherwise may not. Finding a niche seems to be a path to success for most trucks.

While one truck may specialize in outlandish burgers, another may serve only boerewors rolls". Food trailer and mobile kitchen franchises began to form, catering to the public who were searching for these delicious gourmet treats.


Bain Marie Trailer also known as the funeral trailer or food warmer trailer is ideal for weddings and functions where you need to keep cooked food warm for a period of time to serve and dish up.
