Crown Steam

Crown steam kettles enable operators to prepare large quantities of tasty soups, chilis, and stocks with even heat and minimal oversight. Crown kettles use steam to spread heat across a large surface area, cooking your dish from every direction rather than only from the bottom, as a traditional stock pot does. This process creates more even heat distribution and alleviates the need for constant attention and stirring, which enables operators to allocate that time elsewhere. Steam kettles can cook significantly larger quantities than regular kettles or stock pots because heat permeates from the steam jacket rather than radiating up from the bottom. When cooking large quantities of dense foods, heat can't penetrate all the way from the bottom to the top, so you end up with uncooked food on the top and burned bits on the bottom. Crown as a brand is a merging of Southbend steam kettles, Market Forge steam kettles, and Blodgett steam kettles, so you can expect the quality of those famous brands in Crown. We'll go over KaTom's selection below and then answer some common questions. More

Common Questions About Crown Kettles

How is a steam kettle different from a stock pot?

Steam kettles are large-capacity kettles that cook with steam rather than radiant heat. Steam is heated between two metal layers, which transfers heat into the inner layer and thus the food. Because the steam is heated in a chamber (or jacket) that encompasses half or two thirds of the kettle, heat radiates inward from a much larger area than with a stovetop unit. This method is important for high quantities and dense chilis because heat emanating only from a stovetop element will not penetrate to cook the uppermost portion of the food, while the steam jacket will. If you've ever seen a chef standing over a boiling pot, stirring gently and looking bored, you understand the wasted time that can plague standard cook pots. Steam kettles will still require some oversight, but the dispersed heating reduces hot and cold spots and greatly lowers the stirring required.

What are two-thirds and one-half Crown kettles?

These designations refer to the area of the kettle covered by the heating steam jacket. Two-thirds steam kettles will provide a larger heated area, while half-jacketed kettles will require less power but won't heat as much of the total kettle. Consider how much of the kettle's capacity you expect to use on a regular basis. If the kettle won't be more than half full, a two-thirds jacket will only waste energy.

What does a tilt kettle do?

A tilt steam kettle has a built-in mechanism that enables the operator to safely and easily tip the kettle to empty it. These tilting mechanisms can be either manual or electric. Manual options have mechanical assistance, but they still require someone to tilt the kettle by hand. Tilt kettles are very useful if you need to make large quantities of anything, especially heavy foods. Instead of scooping one ladleful at a time, operators can tilt the kettle and fill smaller, more versatile containers with cooked product.

What brands comprise Crown Steam?

Crown was formed out of Blodgett steam kettles, Southbend steam kettles, and Market Forge steam kettles. These brands, all underneath the umbrella of The Middleby Corporation, represent a sizeable portion of the steam kettle market. Now operators can find Crown steam kettles that bring together the best facets of each.
