LWE Commercial Steamer Savings Comparison [Infographic]

In today’s uncertain environment, it’s more important than ever to look at the big picture. That includes looking beyond the purchase price of a piece of equipment and considering other factors that may cost (or save) you money over the next five to ten years.

So you may be wondering, what exactly does the payback look like on the LWE ENERGY STAR® certified steamer? The example below breaks down the savings, starting with rebates at purchase all the way through a 10-year lifespan. This example is based on an Illinois rebate and utility costs. Payback will vary depending upon location.

Utility costs may seem minuscule, until you add them up over the lifespan of a piece of cooking equipment. That is the big picture. The money saved is helping to free up funds to replace another piece of equipment in your lineup, or even expand your operation.
