The alco AGT contact cooker



The alco AGT contact cooker is designed for the even, double-sided contact cooking of products without additional fat. The products are conveyed through the machine between an upper and a lower PTFE coated belt and cooked by plates heated electrically or by thermal oil. The plates can be equipped with patterns such as grill marks depending on the desired appearance of the products. Since the products cook in their own fat, the result of this process is a product that looks appetising and has a natural taste of its own, without any addition of fat and with a slight loss of weight. These aspects correspond with the present trend towards healthier and lighter cuisine.

For your application we offer you, based on our standard design, machines of various sizes, different additional options and add-on equipment. Due to the flexible combination options, we can configure the perfect solution for you. Should your optimal solution, however, not be achievable in this way, we would be glad to develop it together with you.
