How It Works

Steam cookers can deliver steam to the cooking compartment in several different ways, including pressurized, pressureless, boiler and connectionless steamers as well as in-compartment steam generators. Steam cookers that have earned the ENERGY STAR® designation offer shorter cook times and higher production rates, along with higher energy efficiency ratings.


  • Improved energy efficiency
  • ENERGY STAR® steam cookers meet specification requirements of 38% natural gas minimum cooking efficiency, and a maximum idle rate (which varies with steamer size)
  • Reduction in natural gas usage
  • Shorter cooking time
  • Higher production rates
  • Improved steam delivery
  • Reduced heat loss (better insulation)
  • Energy and cost savings
  • Water savings through reduced condensate draining

Building Applications

ENERGY STAR® steam cookers are ideal for use in all commercial food service or food processing institutions.
