Antunes Introduces the Jet Steamer

March 27, 2018

CAROL STREAM, ILLINOIS – Antunes, a family owned and operated company specializing in the manufacturing of foodservice equipment, recently released its JS-1000 Jet Steamer.

The Jet Steamer uses bursts of steam to quickly and efficiently prepare small portions of a wide range of foods, including eggs, oatmeal, rice, vegetables, seafood and soups.

The unique shape of the unit's steaming cup combined with the velocity and temperature of the steam mixes and heats foods significantly faster than traditional methods — from scrambled eggs in 12 seconds to tortellini in 45 seconds. Additionally, the user-friendly touchscreen interface enables operators to preprogram cooking times for a variety of fresh menu items.

“Using just plain tap water, Antunes steamers keep the nutritional integrity of foods intact while bringing out their flavors — making it a healthy cooking method,” said Steve Pytlak, product manager for Antunes. “With the Jet Steamer, the made-to-order options are nearly limitless, providing operators with increased flexibility and efficiency to better serve their customers.”
