Cheese melters, on the other hand, really do exactly what their name suggests. They melt cheese. They typically use simple calrod or quartz heating elements that quickly heat up to very high temperatures. Whether it’s crumbled blue cheese on top of a steak or the cheese on top of a French onion soup, if all you need to do is melt cheese, caramelize or quickly brown products, a simple cheese melter is the best solution for you. Cheese melters are also frequently referred to as finishing ovens or finishers, and for the most part, they are synonymous. The only major difference is that some finishing ovens have doors or drawers, while cheese melters have open faces.
No matter whether you need a salamander broiler, a cheese melter or a finishing oven, there are several important factors to consider before you select the best model. First is whether the salamander broiler is a countertop unit or one that can be mounted to the range or a wall. Additionally, salamander broilers and cheese melters can run on either gas or electricity, so be sure to select a model that uses the most convenient power source for your establishment.
