TURBO POT CHEFS
See what professional chefs have to say about Turbo Pot
CMC Richard Rosendale
“As a forward-thinking chef, it's in my DNA to seek the most cutting-edge kitchen equipment. The Turbo Pot is one of the most breakthrough innovative ideas I have ever come across. Not only is it a remarkable energy saving concept, but it also saves time in a busy kitchen while delivering extraordinary results in your cooking.”
Chef Rich is one of just 67 Master Chefs in the United States. He represented the United States, placing in the top third at the biennial 2013 Bocuse d’Or competition in Lyon, France, and has also represented the US in the 2004 World Culinary Olympics. As the youngest Executive Chef in The Greenbrier history, Rich opened five new restaurants and launched the 44-acre Greenbrier Farm.
Rich made his television debut in 2013 on CBS’s Recipe Rehab, where he starred in 13 episodes with Vikki Krinsky and Evette Rios. His newest farm-to-fork concept, Roots 657, in Leesburg, Virginia, proudly features Turbo Pot in the kitchen for optimal performance and food quality. In addition to Roots 657, Chef Rich operates a much-lauded culinary enterprise, offering culinary event services, an online learning platform, and in-demand seminars around the US. Expressing the soul of an artist and the mind of an architect, Rich Rosendale’s cuisine style is a careful blend of design, imagination, and craft.

"Testing had shown we could boil water in seven minutes (in the Turbo Pots) and recover the boil in only 30 seconds. That was spectacular but we decided it made more sense to reduce burner power, save that energy and maintain the same 20-minute boil time, without modifying our kitchen procedures and ticket times.
I have been in Research and Development for Carrabba's Italian Grill for 10 years and with the company for over 19. In this time, I have seen many products that claim to be ‘the best thing since sliced bread.’ Well, the Turbo Pot really is the best thing since sliced bread! It saves us a lot of energy, reducing carbon footprint while maintaining a high level of production.”

Chef Mikhail Shvarts
“At Bon Appétit, we continue to be thrilled, for the last six months, with the Turbo Pot equipment. We can accomplish our daily production quicker because of the remarkable Turbo Pot technology that allows for quicker heating across the board. This is a hugely important aspect whether bringing soup to a simmer or simply heating a pan for over-easy eggs. We are equally pleased that we can contribute towards greater sustainability by using less gas during initial heating and the duration of the cooking process. Turbo Pot is a great product. We highly recommend it!"

Chef James Aptakin
“Turbo Pot is a revolutionary new cookware with the ingenious feature of heat sink technology that transfers heat directly to the pan. Because time is money, we use their quality pan in our restaurant. All the energy gets right into this pan and it gets even heat distribution; you get the perfect sear and caramelization."

Chef Reimund Pitz
“As former Executive Chef of Walt Disney World and MGM Studios and Chef/Owner of Le Coq au Vin Restaurant, I have the great privilege of utilizing the best pots in the world ranging from German, France, and Italy. I must say, after rigorous testing and abuse in some cases, I can honestly say that Turbo Pots held up to all of the testing I conducted. There was no warping, no discoloration and they continued to distribute the heat evenly on the cooking surface because of the very creative design on the bottom of the pan."

Chef Shayne McCrady
“As an up-and-coming Young Chef in the culinary industry, I have learned many valuable lessons. One of which is, 'Time is Money.' Think about it, Turbo Pots heat up faster and cook faster, thus translating into more customer turnover. On top of turnover, the Turbo Pots cut down on gas and labor. Turbo Pots are a money saving investment. Not only will they advance me in my career, they also give me an advantage in competition. I cannot wait to see what they come up with next.”
