The Vulcan VG40 braising pan is ideal for browning, pan frying, steaming, and more. With a 40-gallon capacity, you can easily prepare stews, chili, steamed vegetables, and other products. The 39-inch-by-23-inch cooking surface is evenly heated with one burner placed every 12 inches. Temperatures can be adjusted between 50 and 425 degrees Fahrenheit with solid state temperature controls. The burners are easy to light since there is an electronic ignition system.
Embossed gallon markings in the interior offer consistency across batches. The interior corners are coved, preventing crumbs and liquids from getting caught in small spaces. The braising pan’s cover is easy to lift with the spring-assist design, while the handle stays cool to reduce the risk of burns. To prevent water and other liquids from damaging the internal components, the controls and enclosures are sealed.
The Vulcan VG40 braising pan has a manually operated tilting mechanism that is designed to eliminate jamming. With 30 cranks of the removable handle, the pan can be tilted to completely empty the contents. When the pan is tilted past 5 degrees, the burners automatically shut off to provide the operator with safety. A formed pouring lip directs product into the pan, accelerating the unloading process and reducing messes. Pans are held under the pouring lip by a drop-away food pan support.
