If you have a hungry crowd to serve day in, day out, a gas tilting skillet or braising pan will provide the assistance commercial kitchens large and small require to keep up with the demand and produce a consistent batch of food.
A gas-powered tilting skillet is a versatile piece of cooking equipment that can do it all. Designed to support even the most expansive menus and high-volume operation, a gas braising pan offers excellent flexibility in that it can handle every cooking task you throw at it to produce large quantities of food. A true time-saver and productivity-booster, this piece of equipment boasts rapid heat distribution with minimum heat loss to quickly cook food.
Tilting skillets can facilitate pan-fry cooking for food items like chicken, fries, and fish fillets, but they should be just as good in whipping up soups, stews, chili, sauces, and other liquid food items you need in batch. Braising pans can also be used to steam vegetables and seafood and bake and roast proteins and poultry. These units can even be used to cook breakfast foods like bacon, pancakes, eggs, and sausages.
Gas braising pans typically have a stainless steel construction to resist rust and corrosion and stand up well to the rigors of heavy use. These units are designed to increase energy efficiency and production capacity in any busy kitchen to maximize savings and labor. Larger models have a capacity of 30 gallons to 40 gallons although countertop tilting skillet pans can hold 12 gallons or 16 gallons.
The tilt mechanism on gas tilt braising pans is different in countertop and floor models. Manual tilting mechanisms are usually found in smaller units while freestanding braising pans usually have a power tilt feature that uses electric or a crank action on top of manual override.
The spacious cooking vessel can typically be tilted to different directions to make the transfer of foods much easier. The tilting design also makes braising pans very easy to clean.
