How do others out there transport soups, chili, etc. to events?

What have you found works best?


Thank you!

Generally use cambros, especially if going into chafers at the event.

Ditto that, thermally insulated food containers, aka Cambros. 


For "wet" items such as you mentioned, 6.00 pans filled halfway or so, wrapped in stretch wrap,

then covered with heavy duty aluminum foil, or stretch wrapped with a stainless flat-lid on them.

When you do the stretch wrap, wrap it from the bottom up.  I mean put the pan on the wrap, then bring the wrap around the sides and up around the top.


Then insulated cambros.  This should be your go to transport for everything.

I actually have a cambro, plug in, warming oven to transport too.  Was looking at getting a cabro container that

is made for soup/beverages specifically.  Isn't there a ton of sloshing around using the 6.0 steam pans, even at

half full?

Sure you get sloshing, that's why its essential to wrap as KUAN suggested, all the WAY round the pan,

never just the top. Needs to be sealed tight, then it can slosh all it wants.

On the other hand if you're planning to transpo a lot of wets then sure, insulated soup containers would be

the more sensible way to go. Also depends what you're planing to serve it from.
