Browne - 1/4 Size Stainless Steel Hotel Pan

  • CAD Regular price $9.54

Hotel pans, also known as insert pans, food pans, or steam table pans, are versatile containers for many areas of food service. They are popular in casinos and other large buffets as inserts for chafing dishes, but they also have other uses. They can be used for cold storage or ingredient containers in a prep table. We also carry polycarbonate food pans, which are sometimes preferred for these uses, though, because they won't react with and spoil lettuce, for example.

It's important not to confuse these food pans with water pans for chafers. The difference lies in their shape. A water pan sits directly in the frame of the chafer and provides moisture to the contents. It has straight sides, so one water pan won't stack easily within another. Food pans are--hence the name--what the food will be sitting in. These are set inside the water pan and can do so easily because their sides angle into a narrower bottom. As one food pan runs out, it can be easily swapped for another without taking out the water pan.

When choosing the right pan for you, it's all about what you're using it for. The depth you choose is simply based on how much volume you want to fit in it. If you're using it in a chafer, check how deep that is before choosing your pan. We also carry full-size, 1/2, 1/3, 1/6, and 1/9 sizes.
