Article Tools

Q. What temperature should I hot hold cooked food at? Keep hot food above 63°C (for example in a bain marie). This is outside the danger zone (5°C – 63°C). Bacteria grow best in warm temperatures, approximately 25°C – 40°C. Lukewarm food is dangerous as it is a perfect environment for bacteria to thrive.
