Griddle or Broiler?
Before settling on a griddle or broiler for your commercial kitchen, first consider your menu. If you anticipate cooking a lot of grilled items like meats, vegetables and more, a countertop charboiler might be just what you need. That said, if the only item you anticipate cooking on the grill are some burgers, then consider opting for a griddle instead. Griddles are not only great for flipping lots of burgers, but they can also be used for pancakes, hot sandwiches and much more. Chefs love the versatility of griddles, which is why you'll see them often in commercial kitchens.
What to Look For In Griddle Plate Thickness
When shopping for a long-lasting griddle, pay attention to the thickness of the griddle plate. Thick, metal plates not only eat more evenly, but they are also less likely to warp over time. Plus, if you anticipate cooking a lot of frozen items like burger patties, then a thicker plate will provide better long-term performance.
Should I Buy a Manual or Thermostatic Griddle?
Choosing between a thermostatic or manual griddle is really up to personal preference. Thermostatic griddles operate by setting a desired temperature and then forgetting it—the thermostatic griddle automatically adjusts to hold your desired temperature. Manual griddles, on the other hand, give you more flexibility when it comes to adjusting temperature. Set up similarly to your grill, the 'low, medium, high' settings enable you to adjust temperature easily and quickly throughout the day as you cook different types of food.
