With the industry’s highest steam production rating — 175 pounds per hour — and the high-performance heating technology to cook 48 pounds of frozen vegetables in just 17 minutes, the Intek Connectionless Steamer from Groen combines speed and power in one reliable steam cooking solution. But even with all that speed and power, there’s no lack of efficiency. The Intek Connectionless Steamer is ENERGYSTAR® rated and uses 67% less energy than conventional steamers, making it the smart choice for cost savings and sustainability.
It boasts the lowest water consumption of any commercial steamer available — fewer than 1.5 gallons per hour — helping operators reduce monthly water and sewer expenses. And with no boiler or conventional generator, the Intek Connectionless Steamer requires no traditional deliming, boiler maintenance or harsh cleaning chemicals, saving time, money and the environment.
Most operators maintain their Intek Steamer with a simple wipedown at the end of the day using a vinegar-water mix. This helps operators to enjoy substantial savings on costly cleaning agents while spending less time and energy scrubbing equipment. All in all, this versatile steamer is ideal for a wide range of facilities, including school cafeterias, healthcare foodservice operations, restaurant kitchens and anywhere there’s a need for a powerful yet efficient steam cooking solution.
