Finally, a Commercial Steamer Your Kitchen Can Rely On

Equipment breakdowns are always disruptive. However, they’re much less disruptive when you know what’s causing the issue.

When a commercial steamer is running well, it provides several benefits to your kitchen. Steamers cook food quickly and efficiently while preserving nutrients, flavor and color. But let’s be honest: there are a few traditional downsides to steamers.

One is they can break down easily – especially when they aren’t properly and diligently maintained. Breakdowns can occur in steamers when minerals build up and clog parts of the system. With frequent use of water vapor, these buildups and breakdowns can occur all too often in the kitchen.

But thanks to the new Groen SmartSteam® Pro Boilerless Steamer, now it’s much easier to tell where the problem lies with your steamer, and critical backups keep you operational through the shift while you arrange for service.

Easier Maintenance, Increased Reliability

To keep your kitchen running smoothly and reduce downtime, the new Groen SmartSteam Pro Boilerless Steamer comes equipped with enhanced intelligence and clear, easy-to-understand diagnostics for service technicians.

Prevention through proper cleaning is one way to help keep your steamer running smoothly. The SmartSteam Pro Boilerless is equipped with an auto-delime feature with simple on-screen instructions. Delime reminders can be set to stay on a regular cleaning schedule. Plus, its mirrored interior makes daily cleaning easier.

Operating the unit’s simple and sturdy touchscreen is a snap. The display shows you specific information about components and the interface lets you navigate quickly through status information and service issues. That keeps minor issues and errors under control.

You’ll now be able to avoid putting your equipment out of commission over something you can solve in just a few minutes.

Service Calls Just Got Shorter (and Cheaper)

If a problem arises that requires a professional’s attention, the SmartSteam Pro Boilerless provides real-time performance data, 5 days of saved error codes and performance information, and detailed service diagnostics. Those features help service technicians know where to start and what to fix – minimizing your downtime.

Other features the SmartSteam Pro Boilerless offers for easier service and operation include:

  • Onboard memory
  • Programmable pan timers
  • Performance data prior to and after an error
  • Error reporting and recording
  • Data retrieval
  • User-set delime reminder
  • Platform for future upgrades

Getting a steamer into your kitchen and set up correctly isn’t always easy, though. To help with that, Groen offers a free Start-Up program within 30 days of shipment. An Authorized Service Agent will inspect your SmartSteam Pro Boilerless free of charge – best of all, you’ll get an additional year of extended warranty to go with it.
