What Are Other Uses For Evaporators?

We have seen many creative ideas! On the East Coast, some of our customers have used their pans for boiling lobster. We have also received reports of Smoky Lake evaporators/pans being used to make sea salt, sorghum, corn syrup, apple cider/syrup, black walnut syrup and birch syrup.

At our own home, Jim and I have used our maple equipment to host our version of a “Hot Pot” party. Basically the pan is filled with a few inches of vegetable broth and throughout the evening, guests can throw in mushrooms, thin-sliced meats, noodles, or whatever else they desire to cook. Each guest tends to and retrieves their food with tongs whenever it’s ready to be enjoyed.
