Tilting kettles make large volume cooking a little less cumbersome. With vats of sauces and stews or chili and chocolate to produce every single day, you need a quick efficient solution such as the tilting kettle to make this task easier, safer, and more efficient.
Tilting kettles are large pots that use steam cooking technology. These units feature a steam jacketed kettle that heats the food from around the exterior and the bottom. This allows more heat to go into the contents compared to stock pots on an open burner.
The heat is merely transferred from the exterior to the interior walls of the pot. The contents do not come directly into contact with the steam, which reduces risks of overcooking or scorching.
Tilting kettles feature a handle or a crank that enables users to push the pot forward to transfer the cooked food in smaller containers to be served or prepared. Since these units typically have a pouring lip at the rim, large chunky bits in foods like stew are safer and less messy to move from the pot.
Tilting kettles are available in gas, electric, and direct steam configurations. The gas and electric models are typically self-contained and use a heating element or a burner system to supply heat to the steam jacket. Direct steam are deemed to be more efficient and faster,
For those with no floor space to spare, there are tilting kettles that are designed to sit on table tops. There are also floor models for operations that require larger capacities.
Tilting kettles have a stainless steel construction to handle the most rigorous cooking tasks in the busiest of kitchens. If you cook a lot of high-acid foods, units with a Type 316 stainless steel kettle can better protect from damage.
