Much like our Blentherm, the SteamTherm single agitator blending batch steam cooker is ideally suited for the full-absorption batch production of rice, staged rice dishes (pilau, paella, biryani, and risotto), pasta, and specialty grains. All water added is fully absorbed into the product. There is no waste of utilities, thus making this process conservative from an energy standpoint. The SteamTherm handles rice and grains with finesse. It is the answer for professional steam cookers seeking to increase productivity, product quality and process efficiency. Don’t settle for a kettle!
