Food Pans


Food Pans
When it comes to ordering pans for your kitchen, there are a few factors to consider. The use of the pans will determine the type and size you need, as well as any additional features like non-stick coating. Whether you're using tongs to flip burgers on a grill or serving up hot food at a buffet, having the right pans is essential for a smooth operation in the kitchen.
  1. As a chef, it is important to have high-quality cookware that can withstand the rigors of oven cooking. Stainless steel pans are a popular choice due to their durability and heat conductivity. When selecting stainless steel pans, pay attention to the gauge, as it indicates the weight of the metal. Opting for a heavier gauge, such as 18 or 20, ensures that the pans are less likely to warp over time, providing you with reliable cookware for all your culinary creations.
  2. When it comes to stainless steel pans, the size varies according to your specific needs. The standard opening is typically fit for 12 x 20 inch pans, but there are also smaller options available such as one-half size (12 x 10 inch), one-third size (12 x 6 1/2 inch), one-quarter size (6 x 10 inch), one-sixth size (6 x 6 1/2 inch), and one-ninth size (4 x 6% inch). These smaller pans are perfect for accommodating special items and providing just the right amount of space. Additionally, there are even 6 x 20 inch pans that can also fit the standard opening.
  3. When it comes to choosing the right pans for your kitchen, stainless steel pans are a versatile option. With their durability and heat conductivity, they are perfect for a variety of dishes. Whether you're cooking vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, and cauliflower or making comfort food like macaroni and cheese or meatloaf, these pans provide a crisp top for each serving. Additionally, deeper stainless steel pans are ideal for preparing dishes like potatoes, gravy, soups, and stews due to their larger capacity. Make sure to check the bottom of the pan for its capacity and serving size information.
  4. When it comes to the essential tools in a chef's kitchen, stainless steel pans are a must-have. Their durability and heat conductivity make them perfect for cooking a wide range of dishes. Additionally, their nesting or stacking ability allows for efficient storage, saving valuable space in the kitchen.
  5. Perforated stainless steel pans are an essential tool in the chef's arsenal. These versatile pans not only fit perfectly into standard full- and half-size pans, but their perforations also play a crucial role in enhancing the cooking process. By allowing moisture or grease to drain off the food and into the solid pan underneath, these pans help achieve a crispier and more evenly cooked result, making them a must-have for any professional kitchen.
  6. When it comes to stainless steel pan covers, there are a variety of options available. They can be flat, flat hinged, or semidome hinged, depending on your preference and needs in the kitchen. These covers are typically made from 18-gauge stainless steel and come equipped with a convenient handle for easy lifting. In most cases, you will only need one cover for each well in your hot food serving table, making them both practical and efficient.
  7. The stainless steel pan adaptors, made of durable 18-gauge steel, are essential in any chef's kitchen. These bars are designed to fit perfectly across the 12-inch width of hot food wells, providing sturdy support for a variety of small pans. Whether it's storing portioned salads and desserts in the refrigerator or using them as carriers on utility carts, these pan adaptors are versatile and indispensable tools for chefs in any culinary setting.
