If they do heat up food, they are referred to as a re-thermalizer. That said, the rule is hot to hot, or hot food going into the warmer to keep it warm. When making a selection of a Counter Food Warmer, one should pay attention to the wattage or kW, for the higher the wattage the faster recovery in terms of heat.
