Common Questions About Pizza Delivery Bags
How does a pizza delivery bag retain heat?
Most delivery bags are insulated with thick foam to keep pizzas warm for around an hour, but some use electricity. These electric pizza bags typically come with a universal power cord that connects to a wall power outlet or a lighter plug power supply while the bag is being transported.
Induction is becoming more popular with pizza delivery bags. Using induction eliminates the inconvenient power cords that come with electric equipment while providing more heat retention than standard foam insulation. These bags include a thermal disc that is compatible with a charger base.
What are the most common sizes for pizza delivery bags?
Delivery bags are square or rectangular and typically range in size from 12 to 24 inches, with the most common sizes being 18 and 22 inches. Depending on the thickness of the pizza box, large delivery bags can hold as many as 12 pizza boxes. Smaller pizza bags capable of carrying a single pizza box are also available.
What are insulated pizza delivery bags made of?
Pizza bags are usually made of nylon, a breathable material that can keep pizzas warm while letting steam escape. Reducing steam in the insulated pizza delivery bag minimizes moisture and keeps the crust crispy. Vinyl delivery bags are typically not as breathable as nylon, so pizzas held in them may lose their crispy crust more quickly. Bags made of vinyl are usually less expensive and are best for short delivery trips. Both nylon and vinyl delivery bags are water resistant, so they can be used in rain and snow. Most pizza delivery bags are a distinctive bright red, but some are available in black.
