Sunrise 2 x 4 Hobby model features a 2 x 4 single pan with two dividers to form 3 processing compartments. The complete pan can be reversed to provide a reverse flow.

This unit will process approximately 15 gals. of sap per hour. The overall cooking surface is 1152 sq. inches.   
The capacity may be less based on the type of wood and how attentive the operator is to keep the fire burning consistently.
Compare to others on the market and discover how these Amish made evaporators stack up:
  • 20 Gauge 304 welded Stainless Steel used in the pans, most will use 22-24 Gauge, which they do not advertise.
  • 14 Gauge galvanized sheet metal used on the sides, most use thinner metal
  • Brick lined fireboxes, most will be shipped without firebrick to be added by the customer
  • Larger Firebox means less filling
  • Heavy-duty warp-free Steel fire grate, most will use a lighter steel
  • Thicker metal on the firebox for longer life.
The firebox measures 16” x 24” and has an ash access door for easy ash removal and draft control. (picture shows firebox construction before the firebrick has been added)
Ash pit is built open bottom so that it does not collect rainwater and create rust out issues. The unit will need to be placed on a solid surface such as a slab or brick pad.
Note: the picture shows the cooker with the optional pre-heating tank on the very top. This tank is not included in the price. Some will use this optional tank to store sap to fill the cooking pan. You may add the tank below using the drop-down boxes. The tank comes with a lead-free valve and stainless elbow.
Apply raw sap into evaporator pan, maintain a minimum of 2” of sap in the pan at all times.
Never cook dry!
Start the fire in the firebox maintaining a vigorous fire throughout the evaporation process.
Includes: drain valve, plug, thermometer, starter smokestack plus two 4' sections, and firebrick lining.
Add optional smokestack roof jack, with storm collar, rope pull cap, and extra 8" x 4' pipe for sugar shack set up using the drop-down boxes.
For the roof jack, we will need to know the roof pitch of the sugar shack and if the roof jack will be on one side or straddle the top of the ridge. Please leave us a message in the comment box at checkout.
