Serve Meals in Record Time with a Sitram Pressure Cooker
One thing I hear again and again in the restaurant industry is how important it is to be time efficient. I hear this from the front of the house staff as they try to turn tables and the back of the house staff as they try to plate meals and keep them at the right temperatures. Of course, guest experience, food taste, and presentation are all of the utmost importance as well, but you can achieve all of your goals in these areas with a Sitram Pressure Cooker, even on dishes that typically take hours to prepare!
While Pressure Cookers are not a new piece of technology – in fact, Sitram was the 1st pressure cooker manufacturer in the industry – they are an invaluable piece of equipment when it comes to time efficiency. Plus, pressure cookers are now safer than ever.
Did you know that the Sitram Pressure cooker has 5 integrated safety devices to make sure your staff is always safe?

4. Add the leeks and garlic, saute for about a minute.
5. Pour in the entire bottle of wine, the mushrooms, 2 Tbs of herbs, and bay leaves.
