ANKO’s HSM-600 Automatic Siomay Machine’s Unique Design Features

Siomay wrappers require a silky texture that does not break after steaming. ANKO’s HSM-600 Siomay Machine is designed with a wrapper maker that connects to the filling and forming device which is compact in size and more efficient. A unique design mechanism focuses on the final forming of Siomay, which presses the wrapper tight around the filling ingredients, creating folds that resemble handmade products, and ensures each product is consistently formed with the same technique and pressure.

Food Culture

Shumai is one of the most popular Dim Sum items in Cantonese Yum Cha restaurants; it is usually made with a thin wrapper and filled with pork, then it is formed into shot-glass-shaped dumplings and steamed before serving. In Indonesia, Shumai is known as Siomay and they can be either steamed or deep-fried; they are usually filled with ground chicken, fish pastes, or shrimp, and served with a dipping sauce. Siomay can also be cut into pieces and served with potato, eggs, and a spicy peanut sauce and sweet soy sauce. In Indonesia, Siomay is commonly sold as a street food, or offered at a food truck. It is also offered in restaurants, and it is a popular item on local food delivery apps, online stores, supermarkets, and wholesale marts around Indonesia.
