Functional Sustainability – PanSaver® Products
Operator uses less HOT water to clean pans (NO scrubbing), reduces use by 90%.
Reduces food waste and improves sanitation/disposal.
Reduces consumption of cleaning chemicals.
Food residue and grease goes into the trash and not down the drain into the municipal sewer system.
PanSaver® pan liners have superior heat retention performance that reduces energy consumption on steam tables. Food retains moisture 2-3 times longer and maintains temperature 20°F warmer versus unlined pans. This allows operator to turn down thermostat.
