I own a small, family restaurant with a few menu items requiring steaming. If I purchase a steamer, should go for a convection steamer or a pressure steamer?

For a small restaurant with limited steaming demands, a convection steamer is probably a better choice due to its lower initial cost, higher quality results (preserves the nutrients, moisture, and texture of the food and doesn't suffer from taste-transfer issues), and ease-of-use (employees can open the steamer during operation to check on the food).  The main disadvantage of convection steamers is that they take longer to steam than pressure steamers, but given that you own a small restaurant and that your menu has a limited range of steamed items, it is less likely that the longer steaming times will seriously affect your kitchen's output.
