Even though it might look like a microwave, the Panasonic Sonic Steamer is much more than meets the eye. And once people see first hand what they can actually do, operators quickly realize how unique they really are. But what is a Sonic Steamer, and what are the benefits? Let's take a closer look.

The Six Benefits of a Panasonic Sonic Steamer

To begin, they're small. At less than 26 inches wide, they don't take up a lot of counter space. At the same time, they have a large capacity and will accommodate two-full size, 4-inch-deep covered steam table pans.


The Sonic Steamer is more than four times faster than traditional steamers. A full 12-pound pan of lasagna can be piping hot in 12 minutes.


Steaming is one of the most healthful ways to prepare foods, and that’s even truer with the Sonic Steamer. A study by Cornell University’s Department of Nutritional Sciences found up to seven times the retention of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) in fresh broccoli cooked in a Sonic Steamer compared to traditional steamers and stovetop boiling.


With "plug-and-play" functionality, all you have to do is plug the unit in, and it's ready to go. It operates in both manual and pre-set modes, and with a stainless steel interior, clean up and maintenance are a piece of cake.


With a base price lower than most traditional steamers, the Panasonic Sonic Steamer will not only help you make money, it will save you money, as well. And because no preheating is needed with the units, no energy is wasted, either.

They operate at speeds four to five times faster than traditional steamers, with rates of 1-1/2 minutes per pound for the NE-3280 model and two minutes per pound for the NE-2180. And without the expense of a water or drain line or the need to delime a boiler, they are much easier to maintain.
