Commercial Steamers

Labeled as one of the most efficient ways to cook, having a high-quality commercial steamer is an essential part to running a successful commercial kitchen. What’s nice about cooking with one is that whether you use a pressure or pressure-less steamer, your food will cook quickly and retain all of its nutrients and color.

In addition to having a shorter cook time, commercial steamers don’t require as much oil or butter when cooking, so your food is much healthier for the customer. Because your restaurant’s food will be low fat, tastes great, and is healthy, you’ll have people lined up around the block to eat.

At Short Order we offer a variety of commercial steamers that are either powered by natural gas, propane, or are electric. We also carry a few different model types such as the microwave/steamer combination, the connectionless steamer, and the convection steamer.

Vulcan ranges

A Vulcan range can take the heat when it comes to food preparation in your facility. It’s not only ranges that make the grade, but also their convection ovens, gas griddles, char broilers, cheese melters, and more. For over 130 years, Vulcan has been recognized by chefs and restaurant operators across the globe for the highest quality restaurant equipment that is energy efficient and masterfully designed. When you combine precision performance and constant innovation, the results are consistently outstanding.
We at Short Order have come to expect that standard from Vulcan restaurant equipment. The company started out as a foundry operation that manufactured cooking stoves in Louisville, Kentucky. The esteemed Vulcan name was adopted in 1890 and their product lines have expanded broadly over the years. Short Order is proud to offer a wide selection of Vulcan range models with a low price guarantee that ensures buyers are getting the best ranges for the lowest prices available anywhere.
Known for ranges that fit any budget or space in your kitchen, Vulcan's reputation is as gleaming as the stainless steel used in their products. Our range offerings come in various shapes and sizes, so you are sure to find the ideal configuration for your restaurant. There are two levels of duty intensity to choose from when shopping for ranges: heavy duty and restaurant duty. Heavy duty Vulcan ranges are great for establishments that use higher energy output and shorter cooking times such as hotels, hospitals, schools and other high-volume institutions. These ranges' larger gas valves allow for easy syncing with additional components. Built for durability and to withstand intense use, heavy duty ranges can be batteried together to form larger units in high-volume kitchens. Meanwhile, restaurant-duty Vulcan ranges are more economically priced and work well standing on their own. Their lower initial cost and lower service fees make them the reasonable choice for most restaurants and chains. Configure your Vulcan range with any number of open burner or griddle top options.
Speaking of griddles, Vulcan also manufactures some of the best out there. Gas models are nearly always less costly to operate and maintain than electric, and we love the Vulcan Griddle MSA24-LP. It was honorably selected as an Editor's Choice at Foodservice Equipment and Supplies magazine, a leading industry publication based in Chicago.
Remaining active in the industry community is a priority at Vulcan. Through a partnership with the Culinary Arts program at the Center of Applied Technology North in Severn, Maryland, high school students were invited to Vulcan's Baltimore facility to learn about the technology and specifications of restaurant equipment. Since 1999, Vulcan has given the school a product discount that enables students to learn using high-end equipment including ranges and broilers. Meanwhile, our low price guarantee on restaurant equipment here at Short Order ensures you'll save money on ranges, too. Because of our dedication to being the leading online restaurant equipment dealer, we promise to refund 110% of the difference if you find the same Vulcan range priced lower anywhere else.
