Cooking soups in large batches or pasta menu items in demand? Gas steam kettles are the commercial cooking units you need in your busy kitchen.
Gas steam kettles cook faster and most consistently than other cooking equipment such as a stockpot. This is thanks to a steam jacket that covers two-thirds if not all of the exterior of the vessel. The steam jacket represents the surface area in which heat can be exchanged. This means that heat basically wraps around the product as opposed to just cooking it from the bottom.
This cooking technology delivers a gentle heat that doesn't come into contact directly with food, which helps prevent overcooking or scorching so that you can always be confident in producing tasty results, even with more delicate items like chocolate.
Gas kettles are available in a wide range of capacities starting from 20 gallons and all the way to 100 gallons. Most floor model gas steam kettles are mounted on heavy-duty two or three-pronged legs or a pedestal base although there are units with a cabinet assembly with one or two kettles that usually have a lower capacity.
Gas steam kettles are available in both stationary and tilting styles although due to the large capacities that these units tend to have, stationary are mode common. Stationary gas steam kettles feature a draw-off valve and a spout at the bottom through which the contents can be drained into smaller containers. Tilting units are perfect for products with chunky ingredients. They have a pouring lip at the rim of the kettle that assists during the transfer.
Gas kettles have a high-quality stainless steel construction designed to prevent rust and dent to last longer and perform well in the busiest of commercial kitchens.
