Charbroilers provide that back yard barbeque taste without the need for being outdoors. Using gas-fired burners and various heating methods, you can provide your customers with grilled meals that hearken back to family cookouts. There is an ongoing debate between grilling aficionados as to which is the best method to use, gas, charcoal or wood, and no matter which side makes what points, neither party will ever likely budge from their preferred method. The same can be said of charboiler heating methods. There are those that prefer standard radiant heat burners because the heat is easier to control, and there are less flare-ups. Lava rock users like the steady even heat the pumice stone provides. Traditionalists prefer wood or charcoal models so they can add the distinctively smoky taste to grilled foods that only come from hot coals.
Regardless of which heating method you prefer, you will want to consider the overall size of the unit to make sure it will fit on your countertop. Also, since the charbroilers are all gas powered, you will need to specify whether you need the unit configured for natural gas or liquid propane. You will also want to check the inlet size to be sure it can be hooked into your kitchen’s main gas line.
Stainless steel is the preferred metal for commercial kitchen equipment, especially food-contact surfaces, because it is easy to clean and resists bacterial growth. However, you need to properly clean and maintain your stainless steel surfaces to prevent rust.
