Care and Handling Tips for Baking Trays

 When properly handled, bakery trays are less degenerative and offer long lasting service.

Here are some tips to help you optimally benefit from your trays, whilst saving on the cost of replacement:

Keep away from extreme heat: Plastic bakery trays handle extreme temperatures poorly. This is primarily due to the degenerative nature of plastics, which makes them less effective in handling high or low temperatures. For the best service, always keep your baking trays at room temperature. That way, you ensure that their service will last longer than plastics exposed to extreme temperatures.

Max. 10 per stack: Over stacking plastic trays weakens their structural form.  For the standard baking trays, it’s recommended that you have at most ten units vertically, and a maximum of 15 per unit for smaller trays. This keeps the trays in perfect shape without causing structural damage due to the bottoms and sides tipping over.

Keep away from corrosives: Certain chemicals, especially acids and strong alkalis are likely to corrode the surface features of bakery trays.  The cleanliness and protection of the trays from contact with corrosives is crucial for maintaining the trays in perfect condition. When these solutions are dismissed, plastic surfaces slowly get worn out, fade from their natural color, or harden, making them less presentable.

Always keep them clean: Cleaning bakery trays allows them to possess longevity and durability. Factually speaking, most substances that are left on the plastic surfaces tarnish the natural color and weaken the structural formulation of the bakery trays. As a rule of thumb, always keep the trays clean, allowing their service to possess the highest quality.
