Commercial Steam Cookers Key Product Criteria

Commercial steam cookers must meet the requirements provided in either Table 1 or Table 2 below to qualify as ENERGY STAR.

Table 1: Energy Efficiency Requirements for Electric Steam Cookers
Pan Capacity Cooking Energy Efficiency* Idle Rate (watts)
3-pan 50% 400
4-pan 50% 530
5-pan 50% 670
6-pan and larger 50% 800
Table 2: Energy Efficiency Requirements for Gas Steam Cookers
Pan Capacity Cooking Energy Efficiency* Idle Rate (Btu/h)
3-pan 38% 6,250
4-pan 38% 8,350
5-pan 38% 10,400
6-pan and larger 38% 12,500

*Cooking Energy Efficiency is based on heavy load (potato) cooking capacity.
