Half Pan vs Full Pan

  • Dimensions: Half foil pans typically measure around 9×13 inches and full foil pans typically measure around 18×26 inches.
  • Capacity: Due to their smaller size, half foil pans are better suited for smaller portions or dishes, such as side dishes, smaller casseroles, or desserts. Full foil pans have a larger capacity and are ideal for cooking larger amounts of food, such as entrees, large batch casseroles, or party desserts.
  • Usage: Half foil pans are perfect for serving alone, for small gatherings, or for cooking smaller portions. All-foil pans are better suited for catering, serving large groups, or preparing family-sized meals.
  • Cost: Half foil pans are generally less expensive than full foil pans.
