Food Pan Sizes

In this business, there's a lot of lingo and technical detail that goes into much of the supplies and equipment necessary to run a foodservice establishment. We have had some loyal customers rightfully ask about some of these details, and so we decided to clear up one of the most frequently asked questions. Surprisingly {or not so surprisingly} the subject revolves around food pans and the breakdown of their sizes. On MissionRS.com, we have a large number of different-sized food pans {full size, 1/2 size, all the way down to 1/9th sized pans}. A standard full size food pan is approximately 12" x 20", so half size pans are 12" x 10", one third size pans are 12" x 6.67", one fourth size pans are 6" x 10", one sixth size pans are 6" x 6.67", and one ninth size pans are 4" x 6.67". A fellow employee found this chart that has helped all of us, and many customers, better visualize the differences:

    DEAR MISSION,
    I AM CONFUSED WHEN A SANDWICH UNIT IS LISTED AS A "16" OR "24" PAN UNIT. WHAT EXACTLY DOES THAT MEAN?
    I KNOW WHAT A FULL PAN, HALF PAN,THIRD PAN IS ETC.
    THANKS,
    MARK
