Product Details

Panasonic, ideas for life.

The Sonic Steamer® from Panasonic is so powerful, it brightens faces and generates smiles from your most important customers. So many delicious items - from breakfast burritos to pastries, and everything in-between - are more nutritious...better tasting...and cook oh, so fast. That's the power to please. And dependable? Hey, it's the Sonic Steamer from Panasonic!

Panasonic's revolutionary Sonic Steamer microwave pulls the plug on traditional steamers by applying efficient microwave technology to generate instant, quick-cooking steam from moisture within or on foods. Small in footprint - just 26 inches wide - the commercial microwave is the only microwave-based steamer that can accommodate two full size, 4" deep covered steam table pans, up to four half size pans or four 12" plates. More than four times faster than traditional steamers (not counting their lengthy warm-up time), the Sonic Steamer Model NE-3280 perfectly cooks and re-thermalizes menu items at an average rate of one minute per pound!

Four 2 pound lobsters for the four-top at table 19? Ready to serve in eight minutes. A full 12 pound pan of lasagna for the cafeteria line? Piping hot in 12 minutes. Three pounds of fresh broccoli blanched for tonight's special? Ready to plate in three minutes. It has become a "killer app" for operators needing fast, high-production steam cooking capability with the plug-and-play ease of a countertop microwave oven.

The Sonic Steamer's plug-and-play operation means exactly that: Simply plug the unit in, and it's ready to cook, with no water hook-up or drain. And it's "Instant On" - no warm-up time is required. The steamer operates in both manual and pre-set modes. Pre-sets allow users to program cook times of up to 16 frequently prepared menu items, for fool-proof, consistent preparation.

Its stainless-steel interior is easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth. The only other maintenance required is to remove and clean a set of filter screens at the front of the unit. This should be done monthly and is as simple as removing, rinsing, and reinserting the filter screens.
