Groen Steam Jacketed Kettles have been voted “Best

in Class”by Foodservice Equipment & Supplies Magazine for six consecutive years.

STEAM JACKETED KETTLES

Why Groen Kettles?

Groen Kettles Cook Faster

Our kettle transfers heat through the entire jacketed bottom and sides. A stock pot only transfers heat on the bottom. Steam jacketed kettles have 1-2 times more heat transfer surface area than the same size stock pot, which means faster heat-up and cook times.

Groen Kettles Are More Efficient

Kettles transfer more of their energy into the food product. Range burners only heat the bottom of the stock pot and are very inefficient. Groen gas heated kettles are 58-65% efficient and electric models are even more efficient. Faster cook times mean less energy used and lower utility bills. Direct steam kettles can operate from an existing steam source for even greater energy savings.

Groen Kettles Save Labor

A single chef or cook can prepare large batches of your signature soups and other popular menu specialties in a steam jacketed kettle. With their even heating and precise temperature control, there is less need for constant “pot watching” and frequent stirring. Groen’s tilt design makes product transfer and portioning fast and easy. With larger single batch capabilities, you can reduce repetitive work by eliminating multiple stock pots.

Groen Kettles are Easier to Clean

Is your staff cooking meat for pasta sauce, simmering that sauce in a stock pot and boiling water for pasta in another pot? A Groen kettle can braise that meat, simmer a great sauce or boil three kinds of pasta with fewer pans. And less burn-on means less pot scrubbing. In addition, spilled liquids are more easily released from the high polish surface making clean-up less time consuming for the Operator.

The Amazing Thermal Efficiency of Steam

Steam carries approximately six times the energy of boiling water and gives up that energy upon contact with a colder surface. This simple fact makes steam an ideal heat transfer medium, and steam jacketed kettles the ideal way to cook, reheat and hold a wide variety of menu items.

What Can You Prepare in a Groen Kettle?
