Commercial bratt pans are versatile pieces of catering equipment. Whether you’re looking to deep fry, roast, poach or steam, they make the process simple.
In this bratt pan guide, we’ll take a look at the benefits of a commercial bratt pan in greater detail. We’ll also look at gas vs electric bratt pans, so you can decide which option is best for your commercial kitchen.
What are the benefits of a bratt pan?
Bratt pans are an ideal solution for large-scale catering establishments such as hospitals and schools. They can help you cook pancakes and eggs at breakfast time, roast meat for lunch and boil pasta for dinner.
Bratt pans perform up to eight different cooking functions. They can help you:
- Shallow fry
- Deep fry
On top of this, bratt pans come with an in-built tilting mechanism that makes the pan easy to clean.
With an 80-litre capacity and lids that double as a work surface, our bratt pans can help you prepare large volumes of food in bulk and keep cooked foods at serving temperature.
Gas vs electric bratt pans
If you’ve decided that a bratt pan is perfect for your commercial kitchen, then you need to decide on whether a gas or electric bratt pan is best for your needs.
The two types of bratt pan are similar, but there are some differences. For example, while electric bratt pans are efficient and suit kitchens that don’t have gas, it’s worth saying that gas bratt pans tend to heat up quicker and have a better temperature recovery than electric versions.
That said, electric bratt pans are easier to install than gas versions. Many simply need plugging in and they’re ready to use.
