The Real Cost of an Economy Pan

Anyone who has been in the foodservice business for long has seen them: buffet lines in which would-be enticing food preparations are framed within the mangled corners and bent edges of low-quality steam table pans. But eye appeal isn't the only thing going out the window.


Bent Steam Table Pans:

  • Inefficient, allowing steam and heat to escape which compromises food temperatures.
  • Increases energy costs from the well.
  • Increases HVAC costs.
  • Extra burden on heating elements, shortening life-span.
  • The money wasted on energy will offset any "savings" made on the cheap up-front purchase price of the pans.

Vollrath Super Pan®:

  • Feature an exclusive corner and edge design so they stay flat on the steam table.
  • Maintain maximum efficiency.
  • Saves you money.
