Floor model direct steam kettles are powerful pieces of commercial cooking equipment that provide a spacious cooking vessel and efficient cooking technology for preparing large vats of liquid food items like soups, stew, chili, and pudding with a delicate touch that only steam cooking can offer.
Floor direct steam kettles have a full or two-thirds (2/3) jacket that wraps around the exterior of the unit to create a large contact area that promotes faster and more even cooking. Unlike with a stockpot, heat is blasted indirectly from the bottom and the sides of the vessel for faster cooking.A 2/3 steam jacketed direct steam kettle is more common in tilting kettles as the non-jacketed part of the kettle has a lip from which to pour the contents.
Floor model direct kettles usually come with a type 304 stainless steel construction so that they won't rust, scratch, or deform easily even with daily heavy use. The capacities of floor direct kettles start at 20 gallons and go all the way up to 100 gallons. The heavy kettle is supported by a heavy-duty pedestal base or two to three-pronged stainless steel legs.
Direct steam floor kettles are usually stationary; food transfer is done through a draw-off valve with a spout through which the contents are emptied into smaller containers. This method makes this process easier, safer, and ergonomic, especially when dealing with large volumes of food.
Steam control valves allow you to manage the pressure in the system as well as the temperature to get tailored results. Some units come with a boiler base to power the kettle and other steam equipment.
