Buying an ENERGY STAR® certified steamer could mean big energy savings because this appliance is better insulated and uses forced convection to provide a more efficient steam distribution system. Several models come equipped with automatic commands to generate steam during the cooking process, reducing energy consumption in the standby mode. These improvements reduce cooking times, heat loss and hot water consumption.
You can purchase a steamer from a business specializing in the sale of commercial kitchen appliances licensed in natural gas appliances.
