How the professional pasta cooker works

The pasta cooker is a professional equipment designed to optimise serving times. It consists of one or two bowls filled with water and one or more removable baskets where the pasta is placed to cook.
The heating system varies according to whether the machine is gas or electric.
The gas pasta cooker is equipped with a central burner in a combustion chamber. Ignition is by means of a pilot controlled by an adjustable gas valve. The pilot is operated by a mechanical piezo. The adjustable gas valve has been chosen to save gas. It can be turned to the minimum position to maintain the temperature.
The electric pasta cooker is equipped with 3 heating elements immersed in water, which can be rotated to clean the bowl. Ignition is by means of a 4-position switch (0,1,2,3). In position 1 only one heating element is on, in position 2 two heating elements are on and in position 3 all heating elements are on. This solution allows significant energy savings, especially during maintenance, when only one heater is needed.

Why should you choose a pasta cooker for your professional kitchen?

The professional pasta cooker optimises service time by maintaining a constant water temperature, eliminating the need to heat it to boiling point each time. This is particularly beneficial during peak periods, as it allows for faster and more efficient service. It also reduces waiting times for customers in the dining room.
Furthermore, the preparation of dishes can be partially automated. By setting the cooking times, the basket lifter module raises the basket at the appropriate time, eliminating the need for kitchen staff to intervene. Chefs no longer have to worry about checking cooking times, allowing them to focus on other preparations. Each module can be set to three different times. Additionally, each basket has three activation, safety, and switch-off buttons. With a single click, the basket descends. A second click raises the basket. In the event of an error in the time setting or the pasta inserted, a third emergency click allows the basket to rise.
The ability to precisely control the temperature and cooking time ensures that pasta is always al dente, preventing it from becoming overcooked or being drained too early, when it is still raw. Furthermore, the movements generated by the water ensure that the pasta moves in the tanks and does not stick.
The pasta cooker models, in conjunction with the basket kit, offer the advantage of allowing users to prepare several types of pasta simultaneously, without mixing them. This is a significant time-saving feature, particularly when preparing multiple dishes in a short period of time.
