Contact Cooker

Function

Our contact cooker will sear and cook your products solely in their own fat, allowing for a cooking process that’s free of additional added fats and provides natural flavor, a product with high eating qualities and home-made appearance. An additional benefit is the minimal weight loss due to the efficient cooking method of contact heat and direct energy transfer into the product. Even heavily marinated or sticky glazed products can be perfectly processed, due to the non-stick abilities of the teflon belt.

The look of the product, too, makes for a real eye-catcher in the modern kitchen by means of the contact cooker: Chicken breast filets, patties, or potato pancakes can be given grill stripes or other authentic roast marks, evenly and on both sides.
