PANSAVER® FAQs

  1. Can I cook in PanSaver®?
    Yes! You can cook food directly in PanSaver® pan liners. PanSaver® can be used in your oven, microwave, slow cooker, steamer, or on the flat-top.
  2. How do I use PanSaver®?
    Simply place PanSaver® in the pan, skirting the sides.
  3. What’s the maximum temperature of PanSaver®?
    PanSaver® literature states 204°C as the maximum temperature. PanSaver® can actually withstand temperatures up to 232°C. Be careful though, as most ovens are not calibrated and often are hotter than they appear. If you are uncertain of your ovens exact temperature, it may be safer to use an oven thermometer while cooking.
  4. How long can I leave PanSaver® in heat/on the line?
    Food safety guidelines suggest replacing PanSaver® once per shift or upon refilling new product. However, PanSaver® will not break down throughout your standard workday.
  5. Can I store leftover food in PanSaver®?
    Yes, PanSaver® is an excellent way to keep leftovers at the end of a shift and can be stored in temperatures as cold as -73°C.
  6. How much food can I store in PanSaver®?
    PanSaver® is designed as a high temperature cooking bag and not a storage bag. While, it is not suggested that you use PanSaver® to store entire helpings of food; PanSaver® is strong enough to hold your leftovers. Typically, if your leftovers are at or below the, “half-way point” PanSaver® will hold them. Remember, if you leave PanSaver® in the pan, you can store as much as you want!
  7. When I reheat my leftovers, can I reuse the same PanSaver® the next day?
    For food safety purposes, it is suggested that you transfer the leftover food into a new PanSaver® at the start of the day.
  8. How do I seal PanSaver® for storage?
    To seal PanSaver®, you can simply tie the corners together or use a standard twist tie.
  9. Does PanSaver® melt?
    PanSaver® will not melt if temperatures remain within our published guidelines. If the cooking temperature exceeds 232°C, the edges of PanSaver® may become brittle and dry out.
  10. Is PanSaver® a non-stick material?
    It depends on the food being cooked. We suggest you follow your normal cooking procedures when cooking with PanSaver®. If you normally spray your pans with a non-stick cooking spray, please continue to do so when cooking in PanSaver®.
  11. What are some possible reasons for PanSaver® sticking to my pans?
    PanSaver® should not stick to your pans. However, if it does there may be several possible explanations:
    1. Be sure to preheat your ovens. If an oven is not preheated, it will often “spike” into higher temperatures to quickly achieve it’s setting. Preheating avoids this.
    2. Make certain no part of your PanSaver® liner is touching the oven wall. The oven wall is almost always considerably hotter than the setting indicates.
    3. Be certain you are starting with a clean pan. If the pan is not clean, old food can stick to the liner.
    4. Since some electrical warmers have “hot spots” which can create sticking, we suggest adding a small amount of water prior to lining the pan with PanSaver®. This should eliminate any problems.
  12. What health standards and certifications does PanSaver® meet?
    PanSaver® is the only high temperature liner that has obtained the following health and safety certifications: NSF certified, Kosher approved, FDA registered manufacturer, and an ISO 9001 registered manufacturer.
  13. How can I make it easier to cook and serve out of PanSaver®?
    To prevent the PanSaver® bag from moving around during cooking and serving, simply wet the pan with a sprinkling of water before inserting the PanSaver® liner. This creates a suction and hold PanSaver® snug against the pan.
  14. Why is there sometimes moisture in my pan after cooking with PanSaver®?
    Under normal use, condensation is trapped between the pan and PanSaver®.
  15. My cooks say lining their pans with PanSaver® slows them down. How can I prevent this?
    Don’t have your cooks line the pans at all! PanSaver® is used most effectively when the dishwasher removes the used PanSaver®, rinses and sanitizes the pan, and then relines the pan him/herself! Your pans can be stacked with the PanSaver® already in them. When your cook reaches for a pan, it is already lined and ready to use. The entire operation is now faster and more efficient.
  16. How is PanSaver® cost effective?
    Our customers tell us the combination of Labor Savings + Food Savings + Operational Savings results in a 10 times Return on Investment for every PanSaver® they use. Please refer to the Cost Saving Calculator on this website.
  17. What size pans can use PanSaver®?
    PanSaver® comes in sizes to fit all standard steam table pans, roasting pans, and soup pots. Contact Pansaver Oceania for details.
