Choosing between different models and sizes of steamers should be based
on the amount of food you plan to cook within the cavity at once. In
addition, you’ll need to consider the space accommodations allotted for
your steamer, as one model may consume a footprint within your kitchen
while another can sit comfortably on top of a shelving unit.
Charbroilers generally operate at temperatures of 550 degrees and up, regardless of make, model, or manufacturer. Burners are separated at widths of 12”-15” apart (with pricier models having more burners/width), and unlike a griddle, the cooktop has slats to give items that classic grillmark appearance.
