Griddle Broiler Combo: A Combination Of Broiler And Griddle
Griddle broiler combos are a combination of broiler and griddle side by side or one under the other in the same cooking equipment. These combo units are often composed of a countertop gas griddle with a flat cooking surface. You can grill your burgers, sausage, chicken, or seafood. The charbroiler unit welded next to the griddle may have slopped or level grates. You can cook your steaks, ribs, or large meat cuts. In some models, the broiler unit that is placed under the griddle can be used as cheesemelters.
Griddle broiler combos have separate burners producing separate BTU output, a measure of heat generated by the burners in gas cooking equipment. The higher the BTU rating of a countertop gas griddle or charbroiler, the faster it reaches the cooking temperatures. Your equipment should have higher BTU levels if you need faster cooking and recovery times and more production. Independent BTU ratings in griddle broiler combos increase your cooking versatility and flexibility.
A griddle broiler combo with an over/under broiling system is also known as a gas griddle on overfire broiler. These units are constructed of a top stainless steel griddle plate with a pull-out broiler rack under it. Pull-out rack design makes cleaning a breeze. Plus, you can choose from one to four rack positions. A 4-position pull-out broiler rack means you can raise and lower the broiler unit in 4 positions. Thus, you can adjust the clearance between the griddle top and the broiler. You can lower the rack when you grill a large item on the broiler.
While buying a griddle broiler combo, you need to specify your gas type. If a natural gas line is not available, LP gas is preferable. It also makes your unit portable with an LP gas tank. The items you cook, cooking volumes, and available space will determine your unit's griddle plate thickness and size. Thin plates heat up and recover faster and are suitable for more delicate items. The cooking surface width varies between 24 and 72 inches. Chef's Deal has various models and sizes of griddle broiler combos from market leaders like Comstock-Castle, and more.
