Cook More, Cook Faster, and Cook More Evenly with Steam Kettles
Steam is an odorless gas that is created from the application of heat. How much you ask? A great deal of heat - so much heat, in fact, that steam contains six times the amount of energy of boiling water.
How does it work? Steam kettles contain a jacket between two stainless steel hemispheres where steam is contained under pressure. The steam is evenly distributed along the walls of the kettle and uses conduction to transfer the heat to the water or food being prepared. Steam kettles offer precise temperature control, so they are ideal for slowly simmering sauces or soups. The high concentration of energy within the steam allows for water to be boiled more quickly than any other heating method. Since the pressurized steam results in even and gentle cooking, steam kettles are perfect for temperamental chocolate, pie fillings or creamy sauces.
Types of Steam Kettles
The two main types of steam kettles are self-contained kettles and direct-steam kettles. Self-contained kettles are the most popular, because they do not require a separate boiler. Direct-steam kettles are used when a separate source of steam is available. We offer a variety of choices in steam kettles, such as countertop, stationary electric, stationary gas, stationary direct, tilting electric, tilting direct and tilting gas. We also offer various covers and baskets to ensure you get the most from your steam kettle.
