Does anyone use Sheet Pan Lids? I have sourced a few makers but they say that they only fit their pans - and I certainly don't need more pans! A few people have said that they fit the pans they have however. I found what I thought were generic lids at a restaurant supply house but they look just like the others I sourced. They assured me these lids fit all standard pans. So that's question #1 - Has anyone used this type of lid on generic pans? If so, where did you source your lids?!
Also, the info the supply house sent said: "With covers on, pans will NOT fit in sheet pan racks." What!!! So that's question #2. Does anyone have lids which allow the pans to fit in a rack? If so, where did you get them?!
Here's the link I was sent regarding these lids: http://www.focusfoodservice.com/catalog.cfm?dest=itempg&itemid=...#
Cambro 1826CCW clear plastic lids fit full sized standard sheet pans. Note that they do not "clip on" for a tupperware like seal, but they sure beat the heck out of plastic wrap. They are also about an inch higher than the sheet pan.
Hope that helps.
Take a look here. Based on the photo it looks like the issue of whether or not the lid will fit in your rack depends on the way your rack is made.
As for how tight the fit it is. Not having used this exact model, but based on experience with other, similar products, the plastic lid does have a friction fit. How good that fit is depends on many things, including, I imagine, how beat up the pan it's covering is.
Thanks Clay. Yes, I'm thinking that they will fit my rack. I'll buy a few and see how it all goes. I think they'll work out just fine...
The ones that you pointed out. I'm not sure how the one that Brad pointed out would sit on the sheet pan with that flatter edge?
The good thing about stacking them is they do get more an airtight experience and we will put something weighted on the top of the stack for that last tray. We had an issue with a hungry mouse for about a month this past winter. Ick.
