Versatile Pasta Cookers
Over 20 years ago, Desco realized that for too long kitchens had been utilizing equipment that was not tailored specifically for cooking pasta. Being an Italian company with an unique understanding of what is needed to cook quality pasta, Desco set out to create a specialized piece of equipment—the pasta cooker—that ended up being the first piece of commercial kitchen equipment specifically for cooking pasta.
Desco’s utmost dedication to making only the highest quality equipment was quickly noticed by kitchens across Europe. Its effective design coupled with its high manufacturing standards made Desco pasta cookers easy to use and very durable—a combination welcomed by any restaurateur. Upon realizing the high demand for this equipment in North America, Desco USA was created in 1999 to work closely with equipment dealers in an effort to provide North American kitchens with the highest quality pasta cooker available.
Recently, Desco USA realized the potential in expanding its equipment line to include gas ranges, ovens, and more powerful and energy efficient pasta cookers. Desco USA still maintains the same dedication to high quality products, but now independently provides equipment suited to the specific needs of the American market. As we merge Italian manufacturing standards with American power, we continue to offer the restaurant industry the best equipment in its class.
Each cooking tank is stamped from one piece of fine glazed AISI #316 stainless steel. This seamless construction makes the tanks highly resistant to the corrosive effects of salted water. A blanket of ceramic fiber insulation wraps each tank, minimizing hot surfaces while increasing efficiency and performance.
A couple of high efficiency tungsten heating elements heat each cooking tank. The heating design concentrates boiling water on the bottom of the tank and on both sides creating a convective flow of water that eliminates the need for manual tossing or stirring of the pasta while shortening cooking times. This flow also moves undesirable starches to the skim drain located at the front of each tank keeping the cooking water starch-free. A straightline drain connection prevents clogs and is easy to clean.
