Maple Syrup Processing Equipment | Cookers | Evaporators

Probably one of the best kept secrets in the maple syrup trade is  the Amish built Sunrise evaporators.

This small Amish metal shop has been producing maple syrup evaporators since 1971.  

Since they are Amish and not in the main stream of Internet traffic or trade magazines many may have never known about their evaporators.

Just do a side by side comparison of the Sunrise evaporators with others on the market and you will see why they are the best kept secret.

You may even have to ask the others for the specs as some don’t even publish them.

Sunrise focuses on long term durability, using 20 gauge 304 stainless steel in the pans, and 14 gauge galvanized metal on the sides.

They also build a larger fire box using heavier metal and then brick line them with fire brick.  The heavy duty steel fire grate is warp free.

Amish shops like Sunrise are hands on by the owner(s).  They simply don’t have the large corporate overhead structures, thus the savings in a evaporator using heavier metals can still be competitive with others on the market.

Cottage Craft Works .com is proud to be able to provide such high quality products to the general market place.

Although they list evaporators on their site for the small commercial and hobby farmers, you can still order the large Sunrise commercial evaporators and parts.

Custom pans can be built to any size to use on your own arch.  All types of maple syrup filtering tanks.

These popular evaporators sell out early in the season so consider purchasing early.

Cottage Craft Works .com online general store carries over 5000 hard to find quality made products.  Just like the Sunrise evaporators you can find quality  American made products just like they were made in the 1950s.
