Industrial Rice, Pasta & Vegetable Cookers

Products such as rice, long and short pastas, noodles, alternative grain products, sliced vegetables and even pulses (beans) can be produced using the range of DC Norris Cook Quench & Chill equipment.

Our cook, quench, chill equipment cooks starches like rice, pasta and vegetables and then chills them to 40°F (4°C)  while retaining product definition on susceptible products such as long pasta or noodles.  Our industry leading cook-quench-chill systems prepare delicate foods without sticking, which makes de-nesting of products like noodles easy to achieve without damage.

From a relatively simple kettle based system with overhead hoist to a fully automated system with wave agitation for long pasta and products that are prone to clumping, DC Norris North America’s team of engineers can design, manufacture and install the right solution for your needs.

Capacity Range:

Tip Over Style: 20 – 80 Gallons

Linear and Rotary Kettles : from 40 Gallons
