Steam Jacketed Kettles

Available in electric and gas configurations, Groen steam jacketed kettles set the standard for durable, efficient and consistent performance in kitchens of all sizes. With faster, energy-saving cook times, Groen kettles make it easy to lower utility bills and improve workflow — while even heating and precise temperature control translate to less “pot watching” and stirring.

Whether floor-mounted or table-mounted, stationary or tilting, Groen’s heavy-duty construction ensures years of worry-free operation. Features like reinforced rims allow Groen kettles to stand up to the hectic pace of today’s busy commercial kitchens, and water-resistant controls always come standard on floor-mounted models. Easy-to-clean surfaces also keep kettles looking polished with less burn-ons over time.

When it comes to thermal efficiency, steam delivers substantial energy savings by drawing from existing sources. Groen gas-heated kettles are 58-65% efficient — with electric models operating even more efficiently — offering a safer, cheaper alternative to traditional stockpots. And with six times the total energy of boiling water, steam is the ideal heat transfer medium for cooking, reheating and holding a variety of menu items.

Groen’s award-winning lineup of steam jacketed kettles is the batch-cooking solution that offers perfectly consistent, repeatable results day after day. With more options available than any other brand, Groen kettles were recognized as Best-in-Class by the foodservice consultant community in 2014 by Foodservice Equipment & Supplies magazine.
