Insulated Equipment Keeps Food Hot, Cooks and Kitchen Cool

Insulation is perhaps the single biggest improvement to foodservice cooking equipment in the last 25 years. Why did we develop it? Why should you buy it? The answer to both questions is simple: safety and savings. In fact, we’re so confident that our new line of insulated equipment will make such a drastic difference in your kitchen, that we’re selling the insulated products at the same price as our noninsulated units.

"Foodservice managers and operators are quick to agree that their equipment is hot and potentially dangerous to work around, causing burns and accidents," says Legion President Chuck Brown. "That is why we developed insulated cooking equipment: to protect your employees and have the added benefit of being more environmentally friendly."

Legion began manufacturing insulated foodservice equipment in the early 1960s. When Chuck Brown purchased the company in the late 1980s, he advanced the original insulation design and first offered it on the insulated direct steam kettle. Since then, Legion has incorporated insulation into every foodservice unit it makes, including the popular Skittle® Cooker, The Combi- Pan® Tilting Skillet and the entire line of insulated, self-contained kettles.

"Legion’s insulated equipment keeps the inmates and my staff from getting hurt," says Dick Dansdill of the Fremont Correctional Facility in Canon City, Colorado. "I run a steam kitchen and the non-insulated equipment gets very hot. One slight bump against it and I’ve got someone with a serious burn. Not to mention the fact that an insulated kettle is more economical and efficient. I don’t know why someone would buy anything else."
