Commercial Steamers

Last week, we got a little bit into commercial steamers.  Well, let’s clarify that statement, since that can mean a host of different things, and we mean one thing in particular.  We’ve always been into commercial steamers, in the sense that we’ve always thought they’re magnificent machines, essential pieces of restaurant equipment for any commercial kitchen.  There are a host of wonderful commercial steamers out there, made by manufacturers of high repute.  (“Manufacturers of high repute.”  Hmm.  Sounds high-falutin’.  Nevertheless, we mean it!)

Some of these manufacturers include Vulcan (celebrated in this very space for the wonderful Vulcan ranges they produce), Cleveland (not the city!), Groen, and Panasonic.  No matter which manufacturer you ultimately choose to select, you’ll be getting a wonderful product at a great price from Short Order.

How can we be so confident in our stock?  It’s easy: If we don’t like it, we don’t sell it!  There’s a reason that the lowest rating we’ve given any product we offer is three stars on a one-to-five scale, and it’s not because we like to fluff our own egos.  It’s because we only sell products we feel like we can wholeheartedly get behind.  And we feel no hesitation in getting behind commercial steamers made by Vulcan, Cleveland,  Groen, and Panasonic.

Not looking for commercial steamers?  No sweat!  We’ve got a whole range of other restaurant equipment you can choose from.  In addition to the aforementioned Vulcan ranges, we also have Frymaster fryers, Hobart slicers, our beloved Manitowoc ice machines, Globe slicers, and Beverage-Air refrigerators.  All of these manufacturers make excellent products, ones we’re just as proud to offer as our commercial steamers.  (Of course, if you are looking for commercial steamers, we think you’ll probably understand by know that we have those too!)  And of course, all of it’s backed by our unbelievable Low Price Guarantee!
