Buying Guide: Tilt Kettles

Cleveland Double Tilt Kettle

Tilt kettles are essential for any restaurant location that moves a lot of sauces, soups, stews, chili, sup beans, etc. They’re also perfect for cooking entrees, such as beef, chicken, or pork. They offer a large cooking area that can be easily tilted to allow for safe and clean pouring or dipping. Typically, tilt kettles include a steam jacket that is filled with treated, clean water. Conveniently, these steam jackets do not need to be vented or refilled. A standard feature on a tilt kettle is the large lip at the base of the kettle rim. These large lips make pouring free of messes.

Cleaning and maintaining a tilt kettle is a cinch. Users should rinse the pan surfaces in warm water and scrape and stuck food off with a cloth or non-scratch brush. Then rinse thoroughly with hot water and completely drain the pan. Allow all surfaces to air dry and you’re good to go!

Tilt kettles come in a variety of sizes from 10 to 60 gallons. The most common is the 30 to 40 gallon model. The size you should purchase for your restaurant depends on the volume of product you’re going to making everyday. Most tilt kettles are constructed with a stainless steel interior and exterior.

The large capacity tilt kettles allow for the preparation of large amount of foods. Most are manufactured in gas and electric models and the temperatures can range from 100 to 450 °F.
