    Revision of F1786 - 97(2010) Standard Test Method for Performance of Braising Pans

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F1786 - 97(2010)

    WK36255

    1. Rationale

    The current test method does not accurately reflect typical braising pan usage in commercial kitchens. While the efficiency test provides a measure of heat transfer efficacy, it does not accurately reflect the cook times or production capabilities of a commercial braising pan. Additional cooking tests will be developed that will characterize braising pan performance under representative operating conditions.
