    Should I use a regular food warmer or one that is also a Cooker? Would it warm up faster in the cooker warmer? Like in 5 minutes or less?

    This is a great topic.

    Places all have a different way to go about heating the buns.

    Some places use a heating drawer which is lined with a damp towel.

    Others might use a warmer to keep them in during service.

    Still others zap each and every order in the oven before servicing the table.

    But.....

    Never use a microwave to heat buns please. Worst thing ever.

    Multiple ways to do it. One way I like is to simply use a convection oven at 500 for 1-2 mins and serve immediately.
