Cooking with steam is extremely versatile and has many advantages over other cooking methods:
- Steam cooks about 30% faster than other methods
- Steam prevents foods from drying out
- Steam is very gentle heat - does not burn or scorch food
- Steam allows very even heat penetration
Pressureless counter steamers hold 3 to 5 steam table pans and are perfect for low to medium volume cooking.
Pressureless compartment steamers include a boiler base and can be used in combination with a kettle for additional flexibility.
Steam kettles are replace traditional stock pot cooking - kettles are more efficient and heat faster.
Perhaps the most versatile equipment available - braising pans roast, fry, braise, boil, simmer, thaw, sauté, grill, warm, steam, proof, hold, and serve practically any menu item.
