The ETS-30 and ETS-40 skillet features one-piece coved corner, 10 gauge T-304 stainless steel with a #4 exterior finish and a polished interior with etched gallon markings. Heating is accomplished by electric elements embedded in a full 1-3/8” (35 mm) thick aluminum casting bolted to the underside of the pan for even heat distribution across the entire surface. Pan pivots on side trunnions connected to the gear and control consoles. The consoles are drip-proof, stainless steel clad and are supported by an all welded 1-5/8” (41 mm) stainless steel pipe frame with front legs fitted with adjustable bullet feet and rear legs fitted with flange adjustable feet for securing to the floor. The worm and gear tilt mechanism allows the pan to tilt forward manually for complete emptying of contents.
The controls are integrally mounted in the left console and include a thermostat, power switch and pilot light. As a safety feature, the pan is equipped with a high limit thermostat on each element assembly to shut down operation should the thermostat fail. Convenience features include a spring assist hinged stainless steel cover with handle and no-drip condensate guide, vent port with swing cover and a removable pour strainer on the pour lip. The skillet operates in a temperature range of 160°F to 445°F (71°C to 229°C) with a high temperature safety cut-off at 500°F (260°C).
