Vortex100 Connectionless Steamer

Versatile, high-performance cooking equipment that amplifies the overall culinary experience.

The Groen Vortex100 connectionless steamer is an economical and efficient commercial foodservice equipment solution for bulk cook-and-hold applications for varying menu demands. The Vortex100 fits perfectly in small- and medium-duty operations that often lack water or drain line connections. This equipment is versatile enough for bulk steaming applications in K-12 schools, colleges and universities, healthcare facilities, casual dining, stadiums and catering.

With its boilerless design, the Vortex100 uses less than 1.5 gallons of water per hour in heavy use. It is also ENERGY STAR® certified, enabling commercial kitchens to not only save utility costs related to water usage, but electricity as well.

In addition, with its fully accessible, industry-leading four-gallon reservoir, this steamer saves you more time compared to competing brands of kitchen equipment – with less filling and an easy cleanup with a simple vinegar water solution.

This steamer is available stand-mounted direct from Groen, eliminating the hassles that come with installation. Just fill the reservoir with water, plug it in, and it’s ready to steam. The Vortex100 also has a condensate cap available for operators without space under the hood. This cap catches the steam that is produced continuously when in use, condenses it into water, and redirects it to a drain line to protect your ceilings from continuous steam venting (check with local agencies for approval before ordering).
