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
