    Some big factors for pans performing well. 1) The arch design, is it a high efficiency arch, airtight and insulated on the door, air under the fire, grate styled for air. 2) Is it a high output pan, additional flues, maybe a hood. Both companies mentioned here offer these set ups. I personally boil on one of these and it boils at the rate I expect with the pan and arch I have. If you preheat your syrup before it comes into your pan that increases the boiling rate too. Look up which pan it is and you can get these answers.

    Update on evaporator—- he decided not to go with the Next Generation model. It was a 4.5 hour drive one way,plus wait time at the border,and then paperwork and who knows what else at border on return,plus fees,and exchange. Closer dealers would not offer same package to him. A big shout out to Leader Evaporator for coming through,they are giving him a 2x4 evaporator with supreme pan,so he has a little crimp area,at a highly discounted price,and our local Leader dealer,Zoeller Maple is taking some off of the price,and I am personally backing him on the rest,which he will pay me back as he is able. He is a very respectful,hardworking kid,which is very very rare these days,actually shows me more respect than my two sons combined.

    Wow Bruce, that's deserves a "shout-out" to you for your kindness and generosity. That kid will never forget what you've done and it's inspirational to the rest of us!
