The HiTec Belt Grill contact cooker sears products exclusively in their own fat. That way, it gets the natural flavor of the products. If desired, products can be given patterns like grill stripes.. The products are conveyed through the machine between an upper and a lower PTFE coated belt and cooked by plates heated electrically or by thermal oil. The plates can be equipped with patterns such as grill marks depending on the desired appearance of the products. Since the products cook in their own fat, the result of this process is a product that looks appetising and has a natural taste of its own, without any addition of fat and with a slight loss of weight. These aspects correspond with the present trend towards healthier and lighter cuisine.
Our contact cooker will sear and cook your products solely in their own fat, allowing for a cooking process that’s free of additional added fats and provides natural flavor, a product with high eating qualities and home-made appearance. An additional benefit is the minimal weight loss due to the efficient cooking method of contact heat and direct energy transfer into the product. Even heavily marinated or sticky glazed products can be perfectly processed, due to the non-stick abilities of the belt.
The look of the product, too, makes for a real eye-catcher in the modern kitchen by means of the contact cooker: Chicken breast filets, patties, or potato pancakes can be given grill stripes or other authentic roast marks, evenly and on both sides.
