Polycarbonate gastronorm pans offer a wide temperature range and as such are suitable for the preparation of hot and cold food. Polycarbonate has many benefits as a material use in food storage and preparation. Firstly it does not insulate heat, ensuring pans are always cold to the touch and therefore safe to be handled at all times. Also, polycarbonate is virtually unbreakable and so offers reliability and a long lifespan. Polycarbonate gastronorms do not bend out of shape so can be stacked to save space.
