Stainless Steel Gastronorms
Gastronorms are used in professional kitchens as a system of containers to maximise the capacity in fridges or freezers, for cooking and keeping food warm, and as a service option. The full size gastronorm is known as the 1/1 and measures 53cm by 32.5cm. Other size gastronorms come in various fractions of this standard size, including the 2/1, 2/3, ½, ¼ and more. Gastronorms are also available in different depths, ranging from 1cm to 20cm, suitable for different tasks in the kitchen.
Gastronorms are made from different materials, including plastic, toughened glass and even disposable foil, but by far the most commonly used material is stainless steel. Stainless steel gastronorms have a huge range of uses in the kitchen, thanks to the durability of steel as a material. It can be used in the fridge or freezer, in the over on food warmers, and always cleans easily to a hygienic finish.
Stainless steel gastronorms can form the cornerstone of a large-scale catering system. Prep food and store it in the fridge in a selection of stainless steel gastronorms. Get food to the right temperature in the blast freezer, using the steel gastronorm to save space. You can then use the same trays to roast food in the oven or keep food warm. Gastronorms can also be used as serving dishes in canteens or self-service areas. All of which means you can use one food system for prep, cooking, storing and serving. This maximises efficient preparation, reduces waste and washing up, and helps to make service more efficient for your staff.
