Durable Construction

Made from durable 22 gauge, 300 series stainless steel, this pan is built to last through heavy commercial use. The patented design of the Super Pan V provides added strength, making this pan resistant to dents and dings in the toughest kitchen environments. The more bends in the steel for your hotel pan, the more durable the pan becomes.

Higher Rim with Flattened Edges

Being dent and ding resistant helps to maintain the Super Pan V flat edge design.  The flat edge design paired with higher rims help to prevent loss of steam from your food wells, saving your establishment both in energy and cost.  This leaves you with a pan that is 38% more efficient compared to weaker pans with bent edges.  Additionally, the flat edges are more comfortable for employees to hold.

Easy Pour Corners

Rounded, diagonally tapered corners make it easier for cooks to pour out liquids and foods into storage containers. Also, rounded corners allow users to scoop out all food products more easily than from a pan with sharp corners.

1/2 Size

This 1/2 size steam table food pan is an essential item for any foodservice establishment. Thanks to its 6.7 qt. capacity, it’s perfect for holding foods like gravy, steamed vegetables, and mashed potatoes.

Anti-Jam Lugs

This pan is resistant to jamming thanks to its patented corner, edge, and rim design. Since it won’t jam, this pan can be stacked when not in use, and cooks can quickly take one off the top of the stack without it getting stuck. Vollrath's easy pour corners provide superior impact resistance. Plus, they act as a convenient pouring spout to eliminate wasteful drips or spills.

Vollrath Super Pan V Steam Table Pans

Want to learn the benefits of the durable construction and patented corner, edges, and rim of the Vollrath Super Pan V? Explore that and other features as Chef Rich takes you to Lakeland College for a real world evaluation.

Welcome to Vollrath University. I’m Chef Rich, and today we’re here to talk to you about the benefits of using high quality steam table pans. We’ll show you the benefits of a high quality pan in terms of efficiency and also in terms of overall presentation in your food service operation. So now let’s go into a kitchen, and first we’ll show you what a typical pan goes through in a day of operation. As you can see, a pan goes through a lot in a day’s time. In fact, a pan can actually spend more time being transported, washed, stored, scraped, than it actually spends holding food. That’s why you need a quality steam table pan. So let’s head out to Lakeland College, which was one of our test sites in the development of Super Pan V. They’ve been using that pan for about a year now, so let’s just see how it’s been holding up for them. So here we are in the kitchen today with Chef Joe Johnson, the executive chef at Lakeland College. We’re here today to talk about the pans and some other cookware items. So Joe, you’ve been using our new pans for nine months—do you like the way the pans look? Oh, absolutely. I like the finish on them. They hold up really well so you’re not putting out dented pans, which is nice. The steam just comes out if they’re all dented up. When you have them on the shelves do they stack up nice, and is that important? They stack up perfect. In a rush, real easily, it pops right off, you can…no problem. So how important is it that the pan is easy to clean? And talk about the ease of cleaning on the new pans that we have. It’s very important with a high volume like that that they get clean the first time, and with these pans you can get into the corners very easily with a spatula. That corner, too, comes right out. And, it’s one time through the dishwasher and it’s clean. You know, we talked earlier today about the pans and you made a comment to me about the edge and how comfortable a flat edge, or this new pan’s edge, was. Can you talk a little bit about what is it that you feel? We have a pan here that you’re saying isn’t quite so comfortable—that digs into your finger or what did you say to me? Yes, when you’re working, and you’re grabbing the pans all day? This edge does cut into your fingers where the edge on this pan does not with the rolled edge. Ah, another benefit of a flat edge. It’s more comfortable to work with. I noticed your buffet you have set up there looks really nice. Is that important when students come in that that looks nice? Oh, absolutely. We get athletic recruits through and that makes a big impression on them. A lot of the parents comment how good everything looks and how clean it is. I’d like to thank our friends here today at Lakeland College for letting us see their food service operation. This pan, the Super Pan V, is manufactured from bright annealed 22 gauge 300 series stainless steel, which makes it very durable. Then, the patented corner, edges, and rim are all designed with added strength right where it’s needed most. I’m Chef Rich, and thank you for joining us at Vollrath University.

    pans pan Vollrath More worth made standard hotel durable extra
    Vollrath superpan are built strong and durable. It has handle over ten years of restaurant use. It’s primarily use for hot holding food display case. We use it to cook and then display food. Highly recommended!
    These pans are awesome! They are well worth the extra money. More than double as thick as the cheap pans, and the edges seem very strong. I will update review if we have any problems with them. The cheap pans lasted us 2-3 years, so hopefully these last much longer!
    Vollrath Super Pan Vs are made of excellent quality stainless steel which is sturdy and stiff, however they came a bit jammed together in the box. We use these for freezer and refrigerator storage of sliced steaks, definitely worth the extra cost compared to other pans.
    i tried making rice in this pan and it holds 10 cups of uncooked rice! sometimes when catering a larger party, I use this as well in a steam table to keep food warm. having different sized gives you versatility
    The Super Pan V Vollrath is worth the extra money compared to the cheaper higher gauge stainless! They stack nice without sticking to each other and are very durable.
    Vollrath is the way to go when purchasing a half hotel pan. They are definitely worth the extra few dollars for the quality of the item. They are tough and durable. I will never buy another brand.
    These hotel pans are extremely durable! We use them daily and run them through the dishwasher hundreds of times a month. I have never seen a single spot of corrosion...only light scratches and minor dents. I definitely recommend them!
    The super pan V by vollrath is a very well made pan. Nice and sturdy, i expect it to last practically forever. Price was very good as well
    This is the perfect macaroni and cheese pan. Sometimes I will also set a pate in it. This is useful for steam table set ups during service.
    I have had many of these for many years and they last forever. I would always go with the Anti-Jam hotel pans as they make switching out pans on a buffet so much easier.
    These pans are the best in the industry. Compared to other brands, Vollraths are noticeably heavier and really stand up over time. Other pans tend to discolor or even rust with heating / cooling / washing -- but not these. They are great.
    Vollrath always has a superior product and we are always very pleased with what we get. They may be a bit more expensive than other brands but well worth it.
    I love how this fits perfectly into a standard refrigerator. Vollrath is made to be a slightly thicker metal from standard generic pans. However, do note they do show wear and recommend mirror finish (miramar series) but costs 3-4x more.
    pay a little more but it worth, the product is much stronger than the standard. I would love to buy more and recommend to whoever use it for any reason
