ShortOrder SoundOff – Commercial Steamers – January 2014


Commercial Steamers
January 2014
For fast vegetable cooking and reheating, commercial steamers are your best option. Since steamers use water instead of oils and butter for cooking, the food being cooked will retain more of its nutrients and natural flavors. Steamers are also known for producing faster cooking times, which in turn will increase productivity in your kitchen. In order to ensure the best results from your commercial steamer, follow these cooking tips listed below.
  1. Always preheat your steamer.
  2. Wait until after steaming to break up and season frozen vegetables, never before.
  3. When steaming vegetables, always use a perforated pan.
  4. Use a solid catch pan underneath any meat that is being steamed in a perforated pan.
  5. Make sure that the drain is 6 feet away from the steamer.
It’s also important to consider whether you prefer a steamer that is a convection steamer or convectionless. The main difference between the two is that convection steamers come with a fan which allows for more even cooking. And finally, make sure to only use a new AGA commercial gas flex hose with the purchase of your new commercial steamer. These hoses are designed to be extremely heavy duty and almost always have a brass quick connect. The plumber supplied home-type flex hoses are not built for commercial applications and are not NSF approved.You can shop for commercial steamershereat
