ICS Code (Cooking ranges, working tables, ovens and similar appliances): 97.040.20
scope:

These test methods evaluate the energy consumption and cooking performance of steam cookers. The food service operator can use this evaluation to select a steam cooker and understand its energy consumption.

These test methods are applicable to the following steam cookers: high-pressure, low-pressure, pressureless and vacuum steam cookers (Specification F1217 Grades A, B, C and D); convection and non-convection steam cookers; steam cookers with self-contained gas-fired, electric, or steam coil steam generators, and those connected directly to an external potable steam source (Specification F1217 Styles i, ii, iii, and iv). The steam cookers will be tested for the following (where applicable):

Maximum energy input rate (see 10.2).

Preheat energy consumption and duration (see 10.3).

Idle energy rate (see 10.5).

Pilot energy rate (see 10.6).

Frozen green pea cooking energy efficiency (see 10.8).

Frozen green pea production capacity (see 10.8).

Whole potato cooking energy efficiency (see 10.9).

Whole potato production capacity (see 10.9).

Water consumption (see 10.7, 10.9, and 10.10).

Condensate temperature (see 10.8 and 10.9).

Cooking uniformity (see 10.11).

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.

This standard may involve hazardous materials,operations, and equipment. It does not address all of the safetyconcerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibilityof the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety,health, and environmental practices and determine the applicabilityof regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for theDevelopment of International Standards, Guides and Recommendationsissued by the World Trade Organization TechnicalBarriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
