Plastic Gastronorm container

The plastic gastronorm container which is perfect for food storage and also known as the GN tray, is a container used in the professional catering industry for the preparation, cooking, storage or transportation of food. The names of these famous plastic gastronorm containers vary and they are known as gastronorm food containers, GN containers, GN pans, GN trays, gastronorm food pan or simply gastronorm containers.

The dimensions of these containers meet specific criteria in order to be compatible with certain equipment such as cabinets, trolleys or refrigerated display cases used by professional restaurants and designed according to the same standard.

You will find the following containers (in accordance with GN size chart) on AZ Boutique : GN 1/1, GN 1/2, GN 1/3, GN 1/4, GN 1/6, GN 1/9, GN 2/1, GN 2/1, GN 2/3 and GN 2/4 formats currently used in the European professional catering world.

It should be noted that these standards date back to 1964 which was implemented to facilitate the work of certain Swiss restaurateurs who had difficulty in organizing their work in professional kitchens. The idea was to set up food containers of standardized dimensions compatible with professional kitchen equipment and manufactured in materials that comply with the health standards in force in the professional kitchen for all catering professionals. There are several types of gastronorm containers like the stainless steel gastronorm tray, the plastic (polycarbonate) GN container, the polypropylene tray and the melamine tray.

Plastic gastronorm containers or food pans, a must-have in professional kitchens

AZ Boutique offers you plastic food containers specially designed to simplify and facilitate your kitchen chores. Though the gastronorm pan is a cooking equipment mainly for professional use, it can also be used by individuals who wish to cook in practical and functional utensils.

These gastronorm pans are made of different types of plastics. One of them is the polypropylene, which is odourless, non-toxic, tear-proof, recyclable, highly resistant to bending and it can also be sterilized. A second one is the tritan which is well known for its robustness and resistance, a virtually unbreakable material. Thirdly, there are gastronorm containers made of polycarbonate plastic which is both rigid and lightweight. Polycarbonate is a waterproof material with a high insulating capacity.

What are the different ways to use plastic gastronorm containers or food pan in the kitchen?

  • As storage bins : Sold with plastic lids, these plastic food storage containers can be used as storage containers for food preservation. Their hermetic seals enable a good preservation of the quality of the food. It should be noted that this plastic is made from polypropylene without bpa, i.e. without Bisphenol A (Bpa free). This allows you to store your vegetables or fruit or even the most delicate foods such as fish or meat without any odours and without any risk of food contamination. These plastic containers can also be used in laboratories to store equipment.
  • In the refrigerated display case : This catering equipment is ideal for storing food and preparations in a refrigerated display case for ice cream or even culinary preparations. Kitchen accessories such as transport ladders, trolleys, sinks, drawer tables and refrigerated items are compatible with gastronorm containers as they meet the requirements of the 631.1 standard, which defines the dimensions of the containers and guarantees their compatibility with the various kitchen equipment.
  • On a service trolley / Easy transport : Easily transport your food from one room to another using the serving trolleys designed to accommodate plastic food trays.
  • As a container for freezing and refrigeration : This professional kitchen equipment is suitable for cold storage. You can easily refrigerate or freeze your food or preparations because the plastic material is very resistant to temperature variations.
  • As a microwave-safe container : The plastic GN tray is suitable for microwave use to heat food and preparations. However, it should be noted that the plastic tray is in not a cooking equipment. Even if the quality remains very professional, plastic has never been recommended for baking as it does not resist to very high temperatures.

The plastic gastronorm container : A high quality, professional and inexpensive equipment

  • Quality plastic : Unlike many types of plastic products on the market, plastic food trays are superior quality kitchen equipment. The plastic used is in accordance with the HACCP standard (The Hazard Analysis Critical Point Program), which guarantees safe use.
  • Stackable and easy to clean : If you need more space in the kitchen, then these plastic gastronorm containers are ideal because you can stack them.

  • Transparent : The practical side of plastic is that it is transparent and this allows you to see through it. This avoids removing or opening the container to see inside if it is placed at the top of your shelf in the cold room or refrigerator!
