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
