The Real Cambro: Food Pans and Lids

In a world full of imitators, it can be tempting to choose a product that looks like the real thing. However, cutting costs on a product your operation depends on day in and day out is the worst thing you can do.

Nothing compares to the real thing. What makes Cambro Food Pans stand out among the crowd? Durability, variety of materials, range of product sizes and lids for every situation make Cambro food pans an invaluable asset to kitchens across the industry spectrum. Learn how to spot the Cambro difference, that is if you haven’t already experienced it for yourself.

Camwear® Pans

It’s never just a food pan when it’s made out of Camwear. Food pans undergo an extremely high amount of use in every kitchen, making it that much more important to choose the right ones. Camwear Food Pans are designed to be virtually unbreakable and chemical resistant. Not only will they not dent or crack, they hold cold temperatures safely for prep stations, buffets and banquet service.  Available in Gastronorm sizes 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/6, 1/8, and 1/9 and depths 2.5” to 8”, there’s a Camwear Food Pan for every need.

Another special thing about Camwear Food Pans is the wide variety of lids that are available to compliment them. Each lid was carefully designed and created to solve problems that other lids can’t!

G2G 108Camwear Food Pan Lids: This is the lid that does it all. Camwear Food Pan Lids are a must-have for their durability, preservation and efficiency. It is a basic food product right that each Camwear Food Pan should have a matching Camwear Food Pan Lid at the very least. Covering your food pans with disposable materials does a disservice to the food pan and its contents. Camwear Food Pan Lids allow your kitchen to be more efficient because they allow you to stack pans safely. Cross-contamination is also minimized because food pans are completely covered and when choosing the designs with a handle and a notch, employees are able to access pans’ contents without having to set the lid or utensils on any surfaces.

Seal Covers: Would you like your produce to stay fresh up to three days longer? Using Cambro Seal Covers, it’s possible! Designed with an inner seal that literally seals your food away from air and possible contaminants, Seal Covers have the power to keep delicate foods like guacamole from spoiling too soon. In addition, topping your Camwear Food Pans with a Seal Cover ensures contents are kept safe and secure while still being easy to access.
