PALUX Touch'n'Steam - New Generation Hot Air Steamer

Industrial technology

For more than 60 years, PALUX has been a leading manufacturer of professional kitchen equipment for restaurants, hotels, community and company kitchens.

Touch'n'Steam is the name of the new, groundbreaking hot-air steamers. They are the result of the latest successful collaboration between PALUX and BUSSE Design+Engineering.

Even at first glance, the fully glazed front and the stainless steel frame make the high-quality character of the appliance clear. The glass surfaces are printed from behind in noble black and light gray; two striking red stripes are typical for all PALUX products. In addition, the large glass surfaces are convenient to maintain.

During the development of the new combi steamers, special attention was paid to easy and convenient operation. Protected by a glass surface, the units are controlled by finger pressure via a high-resolution screen. On the clearly arranged display panel, the cook can keep an eye on all the important information. He can choose between steaming, convection steaming, hot air and heating. With Touch'n'Steam, professionals now cook even more imaginatively and economically!

In the Comfort version, Touch'n'Steam offers numerous programs for preparing different dishes, which can be selected via pictures. The cook can also save his own cooking programs and mark them with pictures.

Because of its powerful performance, PALUX CEO Erhard Ikas also refers to the units as "cooking computers with a connected cooking chamber." With Touch'n'Steam, PALUX is indeed launching a whole new generation of combi steamers for professionals!

„Child seats are not only visually complex but also technically demanding. Our longstanding partnership with BUSSE turns development into a creative experience. Design sprints and a versatile selection matrix relieve engineers, minimize time-consuming iterations. We appreciate BUSSE for their timely implementations despite limited resources. The collaboration is not only effective but also truly enjoyable!"

„We discovered BUSSE Design+Engineering through online research. Contacting them for a functional model led to a contract for a technical redesign. Due to our concept changes, Redesign II was initiated and realized in a prototype, earning a golden award at the 2019 Ambiente trade fair. BUSSE executed the project with precision, on schedule, and with excellent craftsmanship. We look forward to future collaboration with BUSSE."



„The collaboration with the entire project team was always goal-oriented, constructive and pleasant in terms of communication.
