In the hospitality industry, nearly 80 percent* of annual energy expenses can be attributed to energy-inefficient food preparation and storage. Which means: Food production needs to be more efficient.
When purchasing new kitchen equipment, it's important to consider parameters like preheating times and cooking performance as well. Because sometimes energy consumption isn't as cut-and-dried as you might think.
They keep the cooking cabinet temperature precisely regulated, which avoids excessively high temperatures, and they allow you to collect, analyze, and optimize your consumption data.
Modern combi-steamers and multifunctional cooking appliances usually preheat very quickly, which saves more energy than you might think.
Immediately after preheating finishes* is the best time to load food. Modern cooking systems have such quick preheating times that there's no need to waste energy by leaving them idle.
This will keep additional energy use to a minimum. Remember: A combi-steamer is most beautiful when the door is closed.
Cooking several dishes at once in a single combi-steamer means using fewer appliances, which saves energy accordingly.
It will help you avoid expensive peak energy loads,* reducing electricity costs in no time.
Professional care not only maintains performance and safety, but also keeps the cooking system as energy-efficient as possible.
That way, you can be sure that no heat is escaping through porous material. You'll notice the difference on your energy bill immediately.
