The 2 1/4" Medium Depth Full Aluminum Steam Pan is a fantastic item to help you both cook and serve a variety of foods. This is a high-quality aluminum pan that's ideal for cooking meats, baked pastas, casseroles, and cakes. You can serve directly out of the same pan as well when it's time for your guests to enjoy the food you've prepared. Aluminum also has great insulation qualities, so it will help you maintain the temperature of the food. Sold 50 per case, this is a wonderful item when preparing food for a banquet or catering, and there's a matching aluminum flat lid (2050HFA) to cover the pan when you need to store or transport it.
