The gastronorm is a food prep, cooking, storage and serving system that was developed in Switzerland but has spread across the world as an accepted and standardised form of working in the kitchen. The stainless steel gastronorm is without doubt the main form used, as it can be utilised in so many different ways in the kitchen – from blast chiller to oven, food prep to service, stainless steel gastronorms are durable and easy to clean. However, when it comes to customer-facing areas, you might prefer a more attractive material, which is where ceramic gastronorms come in.
Ceramic gastronorms are designed using exactly the same standard gastronorm sizes. Like the stainless steel variety, the full size gastronorm is known as the 1/1 and measures 53cm by 32.5cm. Other size ceramic gastronorms come in various fractions of this standard size. This means you can get gastronorms in 2/1 (which is twice the size of the standard), ½ sizes, ¼ sizes and more. They are all designed to fit neatly and efficiently in fridges, ovens, display and service units, and more.
Our range of ceramic gastronorms are available in a choice of colours, allowing you to add some style to your service area. Stainless steel may be effective and durable, but there is no doubting that ceramic is a more elegant material for customer-facing areas. Of course, ceramic gastronorms are not just for aesthetic purposes. Ceramic is a durable material that can be heated or frozen, and maintains heat over a long period. So, they are ideal for use in steamers and food warmers where food needs to be maintained at a certain temperature over the service period.
As well as our huge choice of ceramic gastronorms, you can also check out our range of stainless steel and plastic gastronorms. Again, these are all available in a choice of sizes and colours. Kit out your kitchen with a range of gastronorms and develop a food prep, cooking and serving system that saves time and space, and makes your service periods more efficient. There’s also a comprehensive range of other food storage apparatus and utensils for use in commercial kitchens.
