Commercial Steam Cookers

Steam Cookers, also known as “compartment steamers”, that have earned the ENERGY STAR are up to 60% more energy-efficient than standard models. 

Earning the ENERGY STAR

ENERGY STAR qualified steam cookers include both electric and gas models. Steam cookers that earn the ENERGY STAR must meet a minimum cooking efficiency* of 50% (electric) and 38% (gas) while also meeting maximum idle energy rates. Idle energy rates are given for 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-pan sizes.

Energy-efficient steam cookers that have earned the ENERGY STAR offer shorter cook times, higher production rate, and reduced heat loss due to better insulation and more efficient steam delivery system.

Where can I get one?

Contact the manufacturers directly or speak with your food equipment supplier.
