Are you considering a new steam kettle or tilting skillet for your restaurant but don’t know which is best for your business? Both options have a lot of pros. Take a look at the highlights below and contact one of Burkett Restaurant Equipment’s knowledgeable account representatives today!
Steam kettles are unique because they cook more quickly than standard stock pots. They are a good spot to heat soups, sauces, and pasta quickly. Cooking is achieved through the steam jacket- a welded space between the cooking surface and the steam source that holds steam and creates a larger cooking surface area. Therefore, steam heats evenly and every serving is the same as the next. Steam kettles come in two varieties- self-contained, in which the steam kettle has its own built-in steam source, and direct steam, where a separate boiler provides steam to the unit. We offer a large variety in steam kettles to suit any need, in varying sizes depending on how much food you are preparing.
Tilting skillets are a great space saving unit for smaller restaurants as well as a versatile piece of equipment for larger ones. Tilting skillets allow you to cook soup in one space, scramble eggs, brown meat for chili, and then cook the chili. The tilting skillet is one of the most variable items we sell. Available in countertop or floor models, there is a model to fit your space requirements. They also come in hand-tilt models for the personalized feel or a steadier pour for soups, or power-tilt models for the larger batches of thicker items that are too heavy to pour by hand. A tilting skillet is one of the best things a restaurant can buy because of their versatility and convenience.
