Bun Pan Rack Uses

The bun pan rack provides a number of functions for commercial kitchens. Outside of just holding bun pans, bun pan racks serve the following purposes:

Cooling: Bun pan racks can assist bakeries and other kitchens with a reliable place to help cool baked goods. The racks themselves encourage efficient air circulation which can help to provide a more even and quick cooling process.

Proofing: In the world of baked goods, having a location to proof your dough can be essential. Our bun pan racks can be used with proofing covers to help provide an ideal location to help proof and rise bread and other doughs.

Storage: While obvious, the main feature of bun pan racks is the ability to provide comprehensive storage space for commercial kitchens. Our racks make it easy to maximize vertical storage space simply and easily.

Keeping your bun pan racks regularly maintained can help to extend their lifetime in busy food service environments. Some of the best ways to stay on top of your regular rack maintenance include:

  • Regularly cleaning the racks to help cut down on food waste, grease and other food particles becoming present in your racks.
  • Tighten any loose screws or bolts in models that come with them to ensure that the racks are strong and will not let you down in times of high kitchen demand.
