A Filter Tray and a fitted set of Flat Filters (1 Orlon and 4 Prefilters) is included in this package. When you start a filtering session, you’ll place the main Orlon filter into the Filter Tray and stack all four pre-filters on top of it. As you’re running syrup through, you’ll slide off the top prefilter layer whenever it clogs up. This will allow the syrup to run freely again through the rest of the filters. Continue this process until all of your prefilters have been removed, then simply wash them with clean hot water and start over.
Use the main pan to evaporate liquid off of your syrup, finishing it to perfect density. The pan is a perfect size to use on a stove top or on a propane burner of any kind.
This kit is equipped with a food-grade stainless steel ball valve and a premium grade dial thermometer. You have everything you need to monitor temperature to the perfect range for bottling (180ºF – 190ºF) and fill bottles or jars in a professional manner.
We also offer a Steam Tray for this unit which produces a nice even heat on the bottom of the Main Pan. This allows you to maintain bottling temperature without creating sugar sand. If you are interested in the Steam Tray, See our Complete Steam Bottler upgrade.

Compare Us To Our Competitors
As you look around at maple equipment, take note that the professional grade pans are built out of 22ga mirror finish stainless steel. We combine this superior material with our extraordinary skill and elaborate tooling for TIG welding in a clean and food-grade fashion. We have a long heritage in maple syrup equipment fabrication. Unlike some of our competitors, we’ll NEVER sell you a brass or copper valve because those materials are not acceptable for food exposure. We just offer a great product at a great price with everything you need, including a stainless steel valve. We build every size pan and will be happy to take on your custom job too.
Notice, right above the drain and thermometer port, we form a strength rib into the front of the pan so that when you swing the handle of the valve the panel doesn’t ”Ka-toonk” and deflect. I challenge any of our competitors to exercise such detail.
