5 Crucial Signs It's Time to Replace Your Bakery Trays


Any confectionery and bread-making business need bakery trays to display their products, serve as in-transit vehicles, and be useful during product inventory and accounting of perishable goods. Over time they will wear down with continued use and in transit, so here are five crucial signs to know if it's time to replace them.

Chemical Stains That You Can't Clean

Bakery trays expose themselves to different food chemicals and substances daily. Most even hold products for hours. Essences, sauces, and syrups from food can create adverse chemical reactions that affect your trays' aesthetics.

Deformed and Melted Areas

Over time, plastic bakery trays will begin deforming because its core elements have started to reach the end of their lifespan. If you're seeing scorched and bent handles or spots, it's time to replace them inevitably.

Emits a Strange Scent

If you're smelling burning plastic when using your plastic trays, discontinue their use immediately and dispose of them. These trays can contaminate your products, and it's best to have them removed immediately.

Softening and Losing Mass

Similar to deformations, trays can begin softening in different areas. Furthermore, you might find some areas to have thinned out to the point where they can’t withstand the weight of baked confectioneries effectively as they once did. 

In Use For More Than Five Years

Plastic trays can have a lifespan of more than five years. However, you might need to replace them earlier because they aren’t in ideal working condition. If they have shown any of the symptoms above, it's time to have them replaced.
