Tiny Space, Massive Flavors: How the Vulcan Minijet™ is Changing the Game

Space is a luxury these days, especially in the food industry. Rising rents and constantly evolving consumer tastes are pushing us toward smaller, more efficient workspaces.

At a width of only 21 inches, the Minijet™ can fit into the tightest spaces, make it a double stack, and add an optional hood, the possibilities are truly endless.
A small footprint is not the only thing the Minijet™ has to offer when making the most of your limited space. The Minijet™ embodies Vulcan’s customer-back-innovation by offering a unique rear design with recessed utilities allowing for flush placement against the wall.  

The Minijet™ not only accommodates half-sheet trays (four 12″ x 20″ x 2.5″ or six 12″ x 20″ x 1″) but also keeps up with the needs of your operation. Need to switch things up on your menu? The Minijet™ has got your back with a plethora of accessories and customizable options. Fry Baskets facilitate perfect browning with their enhanced airflow and also function excellently as a sous vide for the tenderest proteins.

Eggs Pans for the perfectly cooked eggs, great for any coffee shop or cafe looking to add the convenience of a “grab and go” counter. Whatever the menu demands, the Minijet™ can adapt to the needs of the operation.
