1.1 This test method covers 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.
1.2 This test method is applicable to the following steam cookers:high-pressur
1.2.1 Maximum energy input rate (10.2).
1.2.2 Boiler preheat energy consumption and duration (10.3).
1.2.3 Boiler idle energy rate (10.4).
1.2.4 Pilot energy rate (10.5).
1.2.5 Ice (simulating frozen vegetable) load cooking energy efficiency (10.7).
1.2.6 Ice (simulating frozen vegetable) load production capacity (10.7).
1.2.7 Whole potato cooking energy efficiency (10.9).
1.2.8 Whole potato production capacity (10.9).
1.2.9 Water consumption (10.7 and 10.9).
1.2.10 Condensate temperature (10.7 and 10.9).
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
