The Groen SmartSteam® Pro Boilerless Is Revolutionizing Commercial Steamers

Efficiency is everything in a commercial kitchen.

During busy lunch hours or a hectic dinner rush, the ability to prep, cook and serve food quickly and consistently is vital to food service operations. And with operations that may be understaffed, advancements in smart kitchen technology can maximize productivity without sacrificing ease-of-use.

The new Groen SmartSteam® Pro Boilerless Steamer has features that let you cook the way you want while delivering a simple user experience – whether that’s with a first-of-its-kind touchscreen that provides diagnostics, user instructions, and programmable settings, or the tried-and-true ways Groen equipment makes lives easier, with the hands-free door latch, steam lid, and field reversible door.

Welcome to the Future of Steamers

On the surface, the SmartSteam Pro Boilerless has a stunning 4.3-inch touchscreen.

However, Groen understands the rigors of life in the kitchen. That’s why we married a beautiful touchscreen with durability – because it has to meet the demands of everyday use. Can it withstand greasy fingers? Somebody wearing a kitchen mitt? Getting cleaned directly with water?

Yes, yes and yes.

In fact, the list of practical features on the new SmartSteam Pro is extensive.  Here are just a few:

  • Simple user interface
  • Real time status updates
  • Five days of saved diagnostics
  • Hands-free door handle
  • Mirrored interior
  • Semi-auto delime
  • Programmable pan timers
  • Dedicated hold function

Work Smarter in the Kitchen with SmartSteam Pro Boilerless

You won’t need to constantly watch over the SmartSteam Pro Boilerless, which lets you work smarter. Thanks to features like cooking progress monitors, programmable pan timers, convenient +1 minute button and dedicated hold function, the SmartSteam Pro Boilerless frees you to tackle other critical tasks.

With the potential for so much information, we understand the concern of touchscreen technology being overwhelming. That’s why you can utilize the display to be as complex or as simple as you want. You can configure the system based on the individual needs of your kitchen – you’re in control of the controls.

Understanding the Value of Steam

Steam cooking is one of the best methods of food preparation or retherming – partly because it can be lightning fast. The SmartSteam Pro Boilerless heats up quickly and cooks 45 pounds of rice in 25 minutes, 45 pounds of broccoli in 10 minutes and 25 pounds of shrimp in 8 minutes. The unit’s convection fan ensures that food is cooked evenly, eliminating the need to reposition and reheat.

Additionally, steam cooking keeps your food looking and tasting fresh. Both are hugely important to keep your food bright, tasty and nutritious – which helps please eaters of all ages and minimize food waste.

Many steamers can provide some of these benefits, but the SmartSteam Pro Boilerless goes above and beyond – making it the first of a new generation of commercial steamers.
