Exclusive, patented innovations set Vulcan steamers apart. Advanced technologies in our electric generator steamers deliver significant, real-world advantages—whether your priority is minimizing maintenance, maximizing efficiency or reducing cook times. Every Vulcan steamer is built for durable, long-lasting performance in the most demanding kitchen environments. 


Exclusive Smart Fill technology

Initiates high-speed “power fill” to reduce startup time, with automatic “trickle fill” to maintain steam without killing the boil. Start cooking faster and enjoy non-stop steam, maximizing productivity. 

Patent-pending, high-efficiency steam generator

Internal HE Generator produces steam and circulates in a continuous flow inside the cavity, delivering more precise steam control with no taste transfer. 

SmartDrain™ and PowerFlush™ technology

Innovative sloped bottom generator design and high water pressure create a powerful venturi effect to flush out particulates at shutdown, reducing scale buildup and risk of backup due to blockage. 

Vulcan SonicSafe™ Ultrasonic Scale-Fighting Technology

Our exclusive SonicSafe technology uses microscopic bubble cavitation to prevent scale buildup automatically. It reduces maintenance time and effort—and it won’t wear out like replaceable scale filters. Never again worry about a forgotten filter causing fatal scale buildup. 

Available on all Vulcan electric generator-based steamers. 

Durable Features for Powerful Performance

No matter which Vulcan steamer you choose, you can trust that it’s built to the highest quality and performance standards in the industry. 

Beauty + Function

Vibrant, succulent, nutritious. Anything prepared in our steamers—vegetables, seafood, meats and more—is a gift for the senses.
