Compact Type Dorayaki Machine: SDR-SIA

Kasho Sato Manju adopted a Compact Type Dorayaki Machine in March, 2022.
The machine is used for the production of their popular dorayaki.
One of the characteristics of their dorayaki is the strong baked color, and Sato Manju is particular about not using top heat and baking one side at a time.
“Dorayaki is also very popular at the shop, and we adopted the machine because we could not keep up with the production. We believe the machine is doing a good job replicating our previous hand baked dorayaki tastes. Sets of 5 or 10 dorayaki are popular sellers, so we’re very happy that we were able to increase the production.”
Sato Manju chose induction heating (IH) type as the heat source for the Compact Type Dorayaki Machine.
“We chose IH type as it is friendly to the operators and environment, and would also contribute to achieving SDGs. After actually operating the machine, it doesn't feel hot to work with it. It’s easy to adjust the temperature, and the temperature stabilizes quickly, which reduced food loss. We also like that it is easy to resume even if we have to halt the production midway.”
