Nice, vey pleased
hostess trolley that looks good and does the job
This trolley looks good, is very easy to keep clean and it works very well keeping food and plates at just the right temperature. The serving dishes were an added bonus. Very pleased with this trolley.
The lower compartment is 65.5cm wide, 36cm deep and 23.5cm high, consequently you can get two 30cm plates side by side, the stack height would depend on the depth of the height of the plates.

The function of the trolley is to keep food warm above 63°C (the temperature below which bacteria grows on warmed food according to the Food Standards Agency, regulation 852/2004) and below 90°C, for at least 3 hours at normal room temperatures of 19°C ±2°C.
Bacteria will grow rapidly in foods especially in the right temperature. Temperatures between 5C and 63C are called The Temperature Danger Zone and it is important that the time foods are kept in this zone is kept to a minimum. Outside of this zone bacteria either stop growing or grow very slowly (bacteria will not grow above 63C).
In order to prevent the growth of bacteria you simply have to maintain the appropriate temperature i.e. keep hot food hot (above 63C) and cold food cold (5C or below).
Bacteria are killed by heat and are the reason why food should be cooked to at least 70C in the centre of the food and for at least 3 minutes. Some bacteria have a built in defense system in order to withstand the heat. They form spores or release toxins when higher temperatures, are needed in order to fully destroy them. If spores are present temperatures of over 120C are required to kill them.
I hope this helps!
