Tilt Kettles also known as Steam Jacketed Tilt Kettles are large vessels that are powered by gas or electricity and have a hermetically sealed inner jacket. Within the bottom of the jacket or hollow area there is water that is heated under pressure and in turn creates the heat on the surface of the inner wall of the vessel. Maximum temperature of that surface is typically 298 degrees. A Steam Jacked Tilt Kettle will not burn most food products unless it is cream based. Tilt Kettles are perfect for soups, gelatins, and large batches of pasta, rice or any food product that needs boiling. We offer Cleveland and Lolo manufactured Tilt Kettles..
