Vollrath Lowers Operating Costs With Exclusive Direct Contact Heating System


The Vollrath Company, the premier manufacturer of foodservice equipment and smallwares, is offering its innovative Direct Contact Heating System in a wide array of countertop warmers and rethermalizers. As an industry leader in cutting-edge technology, Vollrath developed the Direct Contact Heating System as a way to reduce heat and energy loss by placing the heating element in direct contact with the water, creating the most efficient heat transfer possible. Vollrath’s exclusive fiber-reinforced resin well provides superior insulation and maximum energy efficiency.

Vollrath has tested its Cayenne Model 1001 Warmer against the competition to evaluate the energy and cost savings of the new Direct Contact Heating System and discovered that this unrivaled technology can save up to $109 per year in operating costs when compared to other units in the industry. This makes the Cayenne 1001 Model the warmer with the lowest operating cost on the market.

In addition to the Cayenne Model 1001 Warmer, Vollrath offers the Direct Contact Heating System on a variety of other Cayenne warmers and rethermalizers in all of the standard shapes and sizes, including the new Dual 12×20 Countertop Warmer with Drain. Vollrath also incorporated another innovative feature on many of the warmers and rethermalizers – a low-water indicator light, which helps eliminate the guesswork when trying to determine if more water is needed.

“Vollrath provides the largest breadth and depth of equipment and smallwares in the industry and the new Direct Contact Heating System reinforces Vollrath’s commitment to offer the highest quality and best performing product options on the market. By continuing to offer innovative technology on its products, Vollrath further positions itself as the one-source solution for foodservice professionals by enabling them to run a more flexible, efficient and profitable business,” noted Richard Rupp, Vollrath’s product manager for the warming and display category.

For more than 135 years, The Vollrath Company, L.L.C., has been setting the standard as a manufacturer of quality equipment and smallwares supplying the foodservice industry. Vollrath offers the largest selection and best value for prep, cook, and serve foodservice solutions.
