Connectionless Food Steamers

Commercial food steamers can save both water and energy for a better ROI and profit margin for restaurants and institutional food services

Find green business solutions
Restaurants often use food steamers to maintain or warm food. Recently, new water-efficient, connectionless (pressureless) food steamers, which have no water line or sewer discharge line, have been developed. This type of food steamer is intended for small- to medium-size restaurants. Connectionless steamers save an average of 81,500 gallons per year with an estimated 10-year life.

With funding provided by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California and East Bay Municipal Utility District, the Food Service Technology Center conducted a field study to determine the water and energy use profiles of both boiler-based and boilerless (connectionless) food steamers. The steamers in multiple food service operations were measured for water and energy use. The study confirms that the relatively new connectionless technology yields very significant water use reductions in food service, due largely to the elimination of condensate-cooling water. The findings in this report are serving as a basis for large incentives directed at the food service industry with the goal to eliminate boiler-based steamers and replace them with the connectionless technology.

Rebates are often available from water suppliers and local governments for qualifying connectionless food steamers, with more than ten manufacturers offering water-efficient models.
