Which food pan carriers can be stacked with this item?

Can I extend the holding time of my pan carriers?
Yes, by maximizing your carrier’s temperature retention you can extend your holding time. Start by placing your carrier on its back with the opening facing straight up. When dealing with hot foods, pour hot water that is almost boiling into the carrier and close the door. If you are using the carrier for cold foods, add ice instead of water. Let the carrier sit with the door shut for 10-20 minutes before emptying, and it is now ready for use!

    We decided to try this CaterGator as a much cheaper alternative to the Cambro 300MPC131 that we have 6 of already. It is compatible with all of the Cambro units we have when needing to stack them together. The CaterGator is surprisingly taller but does hold the same amount of pans. We are very happy with the quality of this product and will buy more of them as they are the same quality at a much cheaper cost to our bottom line.

    Solid unit. Love the different configurations you can utilize with your pans. You can even slide in doubled up disposables. Seems like it almost tightens down on the pans when you slide them in, giving you extra security of your food staying where it needs to be.
    I LOVE THIS ITEM. It keeps my catering dishes hot for at least 4 hours. They wash up great after each event and I really have no complaints.
    We love our CaterGator. We call it "the hot box". We use this for catering different events. We find it works well when you place hot water in the box while resting on its back, closed up. After 30 minutes, we drain the water and slide in our hot pans of food. The size and handles are perfect for carrying to your event. Would love to invest in multiple hot boxes for future events.
    by far one of our best purchases! these fit so many different size pans, have the perfect size ice boards and keep items cool for ages!! have made a huge difference for us
    Handles make for easy transportation. Different spacing on the interior is great for pans of different sizes. Food is maintained at proper temperature during transport
    So, time will tell on these. They are very study and stack well. The color is true to the picture. The only thing I am concerned about it the rubber seal. It seemed to come off a little too easy, but I am hoping over time as the come in contact with heat they will conform a little better. We shall see.
    Does a good job keeping my cupcakes cool, especially with the ice boards. Big issue for me, though, is that my sheet pans won't fit in the 3 middle slots! They fit perfectly in all the others. This issue reduces my inventory by 4 dozen!! Not happy about that. As you can see, the whole middle section is empty!
    Thank you for your review, Melanie Reese! We are sorry this CaterGator 16 3/4 inch x 24 inch x 25 inch Slate Blue Front Loading Insulated Food Pan Carrier has not worked well for you. Please see the Customer Q&A section on the product page for pan sizes we suggest for this food pan carrier.
    This box is awesome! keeps the pans hot for many hours. Pretty heavy when it is loaded so it definitely takes two strong people. Better yet, use a cart or the wheels
    This is great to maintain ice for a long time. I recommend it cause it feels sturdy and the price is good. It’s been 3 days that I put ice and it is still there.
    Absolutely LOVE these! I bought two of them and they each fit five 200 pans. Perfect for any transport for an offsite catering event. They sealed air tight, and there was no leakage from the pans when we transported even when we tipped them, pushed them, tilted them. It doesn't matter how you carry them, they won't leak.
    Great product! Does exactly what it is intended for. It isn't light. I suggest the use of a sheet tray to avoid spilling, if using disposable foil pans. Fits several half pans.
    This is a great product. I actually went back and bought a second one and am buying 2 more in the next couple of months
    The handles make lifting this carrier very easy, We use these carries for our desserts only which hold our cold items and are not to bulky that the staff can't work with them.
