Only Top Notch Food Pans have Easy Lift Spoon Notches, one at each end of food pan for easy removal from steam tables and recessed counters.
You can just place the end of a spoon or other utensil under the reinforced notch, lift, and remove food pan. Easy lift notch reduces direct hand-to-food contact for greater food safety. Polycarbonate(PC) pans withstand tough use; resist food acids and oils; and can withstand temperatures of -40°F to 212°F. Pans are NSF Listed and dishwasher safe.
