Chickpea cooker lid

Chickpea cooker lid for manufacturer


CSM were approached by a multi-million pound manufacturer of dips, deli fillers and soups for the UK’s leading grocery retailers and foodservice operators to design and manufacture a chickpea cooker lid.


The client had been using a cooker lid that was not performing as they had expected. Their previous chickpea cooker lid was not designed to be free from dirt traps, meaning that it was especially hard to clean. In addition, there were other defects that caused problems with day to day use.

CSM were therefore asked to create a chickpea cooker lid that was fit for purpose. The lid needed to be free from dirt traps, have smooth and durable edges without any defects, and had to be made from food grade steel. The lid also needed a sturdy frame structure so it could be used efficiently in a demanding manufacturing environment.


CSM produced a lid with a flush inner carcass, specifically to minimise dirt traps, using 316 food-grade stainless steel. Our skilled engineers used the 5-axis machine to weld a safe and easy clean lid with a bevelled edge design.


We introduced a cost effective and reliable design that met the specific customer requirements in the food industry. The client was extremely happy with the outcome, and also ordered a bespoke onion cooking basket too!
