See this beauty? This is a Groen tilt kettle. It’s a used steam kettle and one of the best in the industry. You might be thinking should I buy a tilt kettle? If so, the answer is yes. Right now you might be thinking but why should I? That answer is a little more in depth, but One Fat Frog is here to educate you.
First of all, anything you normally cook in a stock pot you can cook in one of these tilt kettles. If you cook it in the kettle, though, your food will cook better, taste better, and your cooking will be more efficient. Your range burners only heat the bottom of a stock pot, whereas with this tilt kettle, the steam heats the entire inside of the kettle. That means your food is getting heated more evenly and it also means your food will cook faster, which will save you money.
When cooking with a Groen tilt kettle, you can also be more efficient in terms of manpower. A large tilt kettle will hold more than most stock pots and more importantly, they don’t need the same attention while the food is cooking. That means no cooks standing around a pot, checking it and stirring it. Instead, the cooks can put the food in the tilt kettle, set it, and forget it. That frees up the cooks to do other things, making your kitchen more efficient. In some cases, it could mean that your kitchen can operate with fewer cooks, making your payroll cheaper.
Another advantage of one of these tilt kettles is that it will save you on cleanup. You can combine food that would otherwise need to be cooked in separate pots. Again, that makes you more efficient and it also gives you less to clean. The other big advantage is the advantage of steam cooking. Steam is the best heat transfer medium for cooking due to the increased energy inherent in steam. I would go into that more, but I don’t want to sound like Bill Nye the Science Guy.
