Jacobs Pan

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Jacobs evaporator consists of a plain rectangular shallow pan of any convenient length and width, made with a sheet metal bottom and wooden sides. The side pieces are grooved or notched on the inner faces to receive thin board partitions or divisions, extending from side to side, and separating the pan into any convenient number of compartments. These partitions rest loosely upon the bottom, allowing the juice to flow under from one division to the other, while the scum which rises to the surface as the juice moves slowly along, is held back The division boards fit loosely in the grooves in the sides, and may be changed or removed at pleasure.” -Commissioner, 1865
