Freeze: Unlike rigid plastic, board trays do not become brittle and shatter in the freezer.

Insulate: Board trays not only keep food warmer for longer but can be handled more easily from the oven or microwave than plastic or foil trays.

Release: Product release options are available for pastry products.
