    Groen’s Vortex 100 Connectionless Steamer Helps Food Service Operations with Roller Grills Avoid Thousands of Dollars in Lost Sales Annually

    CONYERS, GA – Unified Brands, demonstrated its Groen Vortex 100 connectionless steamer (model VRC-6E) at the 2017 National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) show in Chicago. The steamer, which now features a condensate hood in addition to a water reservoir for stand-alone steaming, offers a versatile solution for heating products merchandised on roller grills more quickly.

    Clay Thames, Product Line Director – Cooking & Warewash for Unified Brands. “The Groen Vortex 100 brings hot dogs, sausage links and other items up to temperature before they reach the roller grill, recouping thousands of dollars in lost annual revenue that can result from just five lost sales a day.”

    The Vortex 100 steamer provides a variety of benefits, including:

    Versatile, stand-alone operation: The Vortex 100’s electric heated water reservoir means the steamer does not need to be located near a water supply connection. The new condensate cap eliminates the need for a separate vapor enclosure or exhaust hood, which is required by many municipalities.

    Efficient, uniform heating: A side-mounted convection fan increases steam velocity and provides efficient, even steam distribution throughout the interior compartment and between loaded pans. A hidden door switch cuts power to the fan when the door is opened.

    Quick start-up: The Vortex 100 is ready to steam within 15-20 minutes from a cold start and keeps the compartment warm and ready for instant steam between loads.
