Countertop Steamers Restore The Freshness Of Your Meals
Countertop steamers are compact steam cooking equipment built to fit all standard counters, worktables, service areas, or backbar stations. These space-saving steamers release quick bursts of steam on products. The moisture locked inside the cooking chamber cook, thaw, reheat, or thermalize the food items, retaining their natural taste and color profiles. Professional chefs rely on steam heat to reheat precooked meals rather than microwaves or traditional ovens because countertop steamers do not cause items to dry out and shrink.
Many Mexican restaurants, diners, and other foodservice establishments with a small footprint use countertop steamers like countertop steam ovens models. Tabletop steamers provide the ideal low-temperature moist heat necessary to keep tortillas, bread, or pitas hot and fresh, and these baked products regain their out-of-the-oven fluffiness. Countertop steamers also work well with stale-looking vegetables, meats, pasta, and sandwiches to return them to their original freshly-cooked texture and color. For instance, the Fresh-O-Matic Nemco Countertop Steamer provides super-hot steam at precise measures to impart a fresh look and flavor to even day-old dishes.
Countertop steamers feature a self-contained water reservoir you can manually fill without a water line hook-up. On top of the unit sits the cooking compartment that usually accommodates one full-size or smaller pan. You can increase the cooking capacity by stacking one unit on another. Thus, in the same vertical footprint, you can meet the high-output demands at rush hours, coffee breaks, or night service demands. Although most countertop steamers have a top-opening lid, front-opening drawer models are also available. You can use them under your counter to open up more countertop space.
Countertop steamers require a one-push-button operation. After 20-30 preheat times, high-pressure jets puff steam onto ingredients from above with a single push of a button. A tabletop steamer will be a wise addition if you run a concession stand, food truck, coffeehouse, or a fast-casual restaurant. Chef’s Deal has models easy to install, operate, and maintain from industry leaders, Adcraft, EmberGlo, and Nemco. You may also take a look at our other steam cooking equipment for healthy recipes.
