   Cooking machine consists of 6 parts:

      •   Control circuit: There are various programs in the control chip, which can set the time and temperature to realize the program and automation

      •   Heating system: double area heating on the side and bottom of the pan, even heating, shortening the maturing time

      •   Stirring teeth: simulate air automatic stirring function, stirring ingredients evenly

      •   Display board: divided into button, touch, knob type, used to set the time, temperature and frying mode of stir-fry

      •   Shell: play the role of heat insulation, heat preservation, filtering and sealing

      •   Feeding system: Timing and quantitative input of seasoning to ensure uniform taste

2.What are the types of cooking machines?

A.Rotating Pot Cooking Machine

Rotating pot cooking machines are generally small in size and are often placed on the counter top. Their shape is basically the same as the induction range, where the pots and pans are placed flat on the heating panel to cook food by induction or electric heating.

The difference is that the rear of the device is fixed with a bracket and stirring teeth, which can be automatically stirred after the ingredients are put in, eliminating the need for manual stirring process. The front operation panel allows you to adjust the speed and temperature and set the time.

It is designed for chain restaurants and snack bars to ensure standardized taste of dishes and save labor costs.

B.Drum Mixing Cooking Machine

This type of commercial cooking machine uses a tilting drum as the cooking utensil. The tilting design is designed to allow for greater contact between the food and the pan and more even heating. They generally use induction heating, but a few models also use gas as the energy source.

The common cooking machines used in commercial kitchens are of this type. There is a distinction between Desktop Cooking Machine and Floor Cooking Machine. Desktop cooking machine is smaller in size, with a capacity ranging from 4-12L, and is suitable for small restaurants or restaurants that produce more take-out.

Commercial cooking machines in the kitchen

Some of the larger floor cooking machines can cook up to 80KG of food at a time, and although it has limited cooking options, if there is a need to make a large amount of stir-fry, fried rice and fried noodles in a short period of time, then the productivity of this type of cooking machine trumps all commercial ranges. Regarding the number of rollers, common cooking machines have only one roller, while some models will have multiple rollers side by side so that the operator can cook different types of food at the same time.

C.Planetary Stir Frying Machine

This large cooking machine is placed on the ground and mixes the food in the barrel by the double rotation of the upper rotating arm and the pan. If the drum mixing cooking machine is suitable for stir-frying dishes, the planetary cooking machine is more suitable for making stews, stir-fries, sauces and fillings.
