Star Manufacturing Ultra-Max Cooking Equipment

Star Ultra-Max Cooking Equipment

When the Star Manufacturing engineers set out to establish a new standard for cooking equipment, they deemed the resulting line Star Ultra-Max to reflect that it can outlast and outperform the competition. They're so confident they achieved their goal that they back each piece of this heavy-duty restaurant equipment with a 3-year parts and labor warranty.

All Ultra-Max cooking equipment is designed for high-volume restaurants, and repetitive heating and cooling. Crafted with features like a full weld placed to ensure strength and stainless steel bodies, these pieces can stand up to the toughest demands on their heavy-duty legs, which are oversized for stability.

All Star Ultra-Max units include front panels that are vented and have a large bull nose, which means they offer a cooler, safer operating area. Though they come as countertop units with 4-inch legs, they can also be fitted to the corresponding Ultra-Max equipment stand to make them floor models.
