Tamale Machine

Mexican foods have found a place in American lives long before. Such foods range from nachos to tortillas. In recent times, another type of Mexican food – called tamales – has become very popular. These foods can be found in all Mexican restaurants. Some are even offered by regular fast food shop. Many people also want to make their own tamales. However, even though these tamales are extremely delicious, they are also hard to prepare. As a result, over the past years, there has been an increasing demand for tamale machines that can help cook tamales.

Tamales may be the perfect dish for occasions, such as Cinco de Mayo, Three Kings Day and Navidad, celebrated by Mexicans. They can also be used in various other occasions. In these situations, tamale machines can help people make the perfect tamales – using only minimum effort and time.

However, people must be extremely cautious when buying their tamale machines. That is because not all manufacturers sell tamale machines of good quality, and as a result, the tamales produced from these machines are not up to the standard. Usually, tamale machines come with four parts; these are the main pot, a lit, a rack and a divider. The rack is used to keep the tamales in their place; usually, the tamales need to be directly above the boiling water – close to the main pot; otherwise, they will not taste as good as they usually do. The divider is also used for a similar purpose.

The lit is used for insulation. As a result, lids need to be sufficiently thick and tight so that they do not allow steam from inside to escape. If the lid is not enough thick, steam from inside will pass out, and the user will need to put in more and more water to prevent the tamales from burning.

The tamale machine should be built from materials that are strong and durable. For this reason, tamale machines made from enamel, stainless steel or galvanized iron are preferred. Stainless steel is especially good because of its high durability. It Is also popular because of the ease with which it can be cleaned. However, tamale machines made of stainless steel may be slightly more expensive than those made of iron or enamel.

There are a wide variety of tamale makers available. As a result, people need to be careful so that they only choose the tamale maker that is best for them. Things to consider when choosing tamale makers include the number of times that they will be used every month and the amount of tamales that can be cooked by the machines – i.e. the capacity of the tamale makers. People should also have clear idea about their budget; they should not choose a tamale machine that they cannot afford. In addition, they need to pay attention to the size of the tamale machine; the machine should not be larger than the amount of space available in the kitchen.

Commercial tamale machines such as the likes produced by Bestcomfg can come in both manual and automatic forms. These are extremely durable commercial units and are expected to last a very long time. In the manual version, a handle is rotated manually, and the tamales extend out of the machine and collected by the hand – while making up to 37 dozen tamales per hour. In the automatic model, there are no human involvements, and the people involved are only expected to pick the tamales from the conveyer belt and place them in the collection tray. Commercial tamale machines can cost few thousand dollars, but considering the longevity and productivity – they are ideal for restaurant owners.
