Store, Prepare, Cook, Or Display Food In Stainless Steel Steam Table Pans
Stainless steel steam table pans are also known as gastronorm, hotel, or food pans in the industry. They are restaurant food storage containers used in many commercial kitchen tasks, from food-prepping and cooking to display and service. These table pans are dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning and shiny for vivid food presentation. The stainless steel construction makes them fit in multiple restaurant equipment, including ovens, coolers, freezers, and storage cabinets. Plus, food pans drop in steam table wells to keep cooked meals hot and fresh.
Sizing Your Stainless Steel Steam Table Pans
Stainless steel steam table pans are available in various sizes and depths for a flexible buffet line configuration. You can thus make the best use of food wells or the space on your serving counter. Below are some fractional, half-size, and full-size pans on the market.

Depth is also an important measure to know the capacity of a stainless steel steam table pan. The most common depths are 2, 4, 6, and 8 inches. A full-size 6"-deep pan can accommodate around 22 quarts of food, but a 4"-deep pan of the same size can hold 15 quarts. This figure is 6.5 quarts for a 1/3 pan with a 6-inch depth.
