Optional Thermometer Upgrade

By adding a thermometer port and thermometer to your pan, you can easily monitor the status of your syrup while boiling. Maple syrup finishes at 7ºF above the boiling point of water.

How Will You Add Sap to the Pan?

You will need to maintain 2″ sap depth while boiling. This means you will need to keep adding raw sap to the pans as you boil. You may choose to do this by hand, or add a Feed Pan or Float Box for ease and efficiency.

An Elite Maple Syrup Pan.

These premium grade flat maple syrup pans are great for a use as a boiling pan for a smaller producer or as a finishing pan for a large producer. As with all of our equipment, these pans are built out of 22 gauge, mirror finish stainless steel. They come with a stainless steel draw-off port and valve, full length built-in handles and a lifetime warranty on welds. We handcraft every pan right here in Hilbert, Wisconsin.

We have custom, double reinforced, foam lined, cardboard crates made for each of our pans. We treat these pans during transit as the works of art that they are. Every shipment is insured. These pans are shipped via USPS, FedEx or SpeeDee Delivery (depending on your location and package weight.)

Need a different size? We can also do custom sizes. Contact us for more information.

Optional Add-On:

The feed pan is available with a $5 discount with the purchase of a flat pan.

Optional Upgrades:

A thermometer port and 3″ dial boiling thermometer can be added upon request. A thermometer helps you monitor the status of your syrup while you are boiling. Syrup finishes at 7º above the temperature of boiling water as indicated by the large, bold 7 marker on the thermometer’s face.

    Hello to the Smokey Lake Maple Products People;
    Received the syrup pan in a very timely matter. Hats off to you all and for the perfect product that you’ve provided me. I am very pleased with the American craftsmanship that was put into this product. Almost hate to use it. I wish you well in the future and keep up the good work.

  2. Stacey, Houghton Lake, Michigan

    Damaged our 2×4 finish pan early in the season. Was happy to find the continuous flow pan in stock and delivered quickly at a very reasonable price. Worked great, was a little different approach than original 2 divider finish unit being continuous flow. Became comfortable with it and made some beautiful syrup rest of the season. Thanks

    Just wanted to say thank you! Great quality pan- hated to actually put fire underneath it!

    This is a work of art. I have done welding of my own for years. I aspire to do work like this. I tried to have a pan built locally from 3 different fabricators. They each said they could do it and never produced a product. I called Jim and he said he could have one to me in a few days. Now I am skeptical based on being let down several times elsewhere. A few days later it showed up as promised in pristine condition.
    I didn’t originally want to spend this much. It is worth every penny.
    Great job.

    Boiled with this 2×4 pan last year for the first time. Excellent quality and workmanship. Also boils the sap very well.

    Spend the money, you won’t be disappointed. We will be buying our next larger pan from Smokey Lake Maple.

    First year using the 2X4 Evaporator and Drip Pan. Using two 18″ square propane burners. Boiled off sap at over 5 gal/hour. High quality, good looking, and fun to use. The custom 0-7-50 temperature gauge works very nicely. Thank you Smokey Lake!!

  10. Paul Pinar

    I stopped by this winter and bought a 2×4 pan and a bottler. It’s worked great and saved a lot of boiling time.

  11. Matt L, Ontario, Canada

    I wanted to thank you for the fine service and excellent product. A friend of mine is a airframe welder at an airforce base, here in ontario and I had him inspect the welds. He was quite impressed with the quality, figured whoever built it really understood what they were doing. I’m very happy.

  12. C. Mulik, Hartwick, NY

    Great pan! Thank you for such a super product!
    I will happily refer your company.
