Gastronorm containers - one standard proves its worth
Today, when we speak of gastronorm sizes - also known as GN standard - we mean dimensions and size grids which, following the internationally valid DIN 66075 and the European standard EN 631, have been providing uniform standard sizes in the catering industry for decades. Containers for the preparation, transportation and storage of cold and hot, raw, semi-finished or finished meals have defined standard grid sizes and can therefore be used interchangeably in the different areas of the kitchen or serving area.
The gastronorm container in GN 1/1 dimensions is a size of 32.5 x 53.0 cm and is recognised worldwide in expert groups in the gastronomy sector. Various other GN sizes have been derived from it. Just a brief description of the GN size is enough for kitchen professionals to know what they need. Depending on how the kitchen counters and buffet displays are designed, the containers can be freely combined with one another to achieve optimum capacity.
