Noon Classic can boil up to 27 liters of water. This volume refers to a thermostat that works at full capacity (water reaches 100°C). In case of heating the water to a lower temperature, the maximum volume of water that can be heated will be higher. For example, if we need to cook at a temperature of 60°C, with Noon Classic we can heat up to 54 liters of water.

Noon Force allows heating practically twice the volume in the same amount of time. Water reaches temperature more quickly, more efficiently. In addition, this allows the preparation of larger quantities, which makes it ideal for large productions, for continuous service or for catering and banquets.
