It may be a surprise, but when it comes to choosing the perfect baking pan for your baking operation, the options may be overwhelming! You are faced with the decision of choosing among many different forms, shapes, raw materials, sizes, configurations, coatings, and more. All these important pan decisions will affect your products and operation, not to mention your company’s reputation and bottom line!
AMERICOAT® ePlus glaze is a clear coating that is applied to our pans after manufacturing and fully cured. It is a silicone-based coating that conforms to FDA standards for coatings that come in contact with food.
Some of the benefits of having pans coated with AMERICOAT® ePlus are:
AMERICOAT® ePlus glaze can be applied to any Chicago Metallic baking pan no matter what material, shape, size, or configuration. It can be applied to our aluminum, aluminized steel, and even anodized aluminum pans. In fact, our BĀKALON pizza pans pre-seasoned with AMERICOAT® ePlus silicone release coating offer exceptional ease and convenience, combining the release characteristics of a non-stick coating with the flexibility to use metal utensils.
Empty pans should never be placed in a hot oven, as it can greatly damage the coating.
Cleaning pans coated with AMERICOAT® ePlus is simple.
In addition to our AMERICOAT® ePlus glaze coating, Chicago Metallic also offers pans with our proprietary formula non-stick coatings, OptiShield and DuraShield, if a longer release life is desired.
Chicago Metallic’s OptiShield® and DuraShield® non-stick coatings can significantly reduce, and in some cases, virtually eliminate the need to oil your pans up to 1500 or 3500 bakes, respectively. Just like glazed pans, not needing to oil your pans means healthier baking and cleaner pans and kitchens. Both of our wholesale-bakery-proven non-stick coatings are certified to be PFOA-free and conform to FDA standards for coatings that come in contact with food. Their outstanding release characteristics reduce product loss caused by sticking and virtually eliminate the transfer of carbon from dirty pans by eliminating the use of pan oil altogether.
