Griddle Burner Combos – Multiple Cooking Single Equipment
Griddle burner combos are combination cooking equipment with a countertop gas griddle on one side and open burners on the other. You can grill your steaks, burgers, shrimps, paninis, or eggs on the flat cooktop. Simultaneously, you can prepare or cook food in your woks, pots, or pans on the open burners. The cast-iron burners on both sides have separate controls. The stainless steel double-wall construction with commercial-grade insulation ensures safer operation and prevents heat transfer between the two units.
The griddle part of the griddle burner combos is a seamlessly welded hotplate over gas burners. The plate thickness is an important specification for the griddle area, which may vary from ¾ to 1 inch. A thicker plate heats up slower but offers better temperature retention. Delicate food items can cook faster on a thin plate, which reaches the desired temperatures more quickly.
Another important consideration for the griddle area is the size of the cooking surface. The side-to-side width measurement varies between 24 and 72 inches, increasing at every 12 inches. The griddle area is covered with splashes to protect walls and surfaces from grease. There is also a removable grease drawer under the griddle for easy cleaning. Some griddle burner combos also feature a pull-out broiler rack so that you can do three cooking tasks in the same unit.
Griddle burner combos can have 2 or 4 open burners. The BTU rating of these burners may be different from that of the griddle burners. BTU refers to the power created by burners in gas cooking appliances. A higher BTU output means faster cooking but more gas consumption. Commercial cooktops generally produce at least 12,000 BTU output, often the minimum power needed for high-heat cooking like searing and stir-frying.
