Commercial griddles are time-saving cooking powerhouses designed for high-volume operations and high-quality results. These units provide a thick polished griddle plate to accommodate a wide variety of cooking applications. They pack quick preheat features and recovery together with constant heat distribution to keep productivity high. They also respond fast to manage high rush cooking loads even with frozen food.
Commercial griddles provide great versatility to operators need for an expansive menu. They can do as great a job on proteins like burgers as they can on paninis, bacon shingles, and even vegetables. Commercial griddles come in two types. There are heavy-duty countertop griddles that add the cooking power right from your counter or clamshell griddles that are specifically designed for rapid cooking.
Clamshell griddles come with a spacious cooking surface and a top platen for cooking food on both sides at the same time, cutting cooking time significantly so you can keep orders coming during peak hours. Clamshell griddles can have up to three (3) platens to cover the entire griddle surface. work best with a product with uniform height although there are electric units that don't come in direct contact with food so food geometry won't be a consideration.
Countertop griddles are central units in the cookline that you can use to whip up breakfast favorites like eggs and pancakes as well as staple menu items like sandwiches and vegetables. They are available in widths ranging from 24 and 72 inches. Each burner is placed every 12 inches and is individually controlled so you can cook different menu items at the same time.
Countertop griddles overcome space limitations that won't allow a large clamshell unit in the kitchen. While it only has a single traditional flat cooking surface, a countertop unit eliminates the uniform height requirements that the top platen design in clamshell griddles tend to have. If you want the clamshell design where floor space is at a premium, we have are topnotch countertop models equipped with a clamshell hood.
Griddle plates are usually made of steel or chrome. Steel is an inexpensive solution that can get the job done, but if you want increased heat retention and minimized flavor transfer and heat emission in your kitchen, chrome might serve you better. Composite plates are the most durable and offer the fastest heat transfer and recovery times. Plate thickness on countertop griddles ranges between half-in to an inch. The thicker the plate, the more volume of foods you can cook while maintaining consistent temperature across the plate.
