How to Clean a Griddle
One of the best ways you can make your menu more diverse and appealing is by outfitting your kitchen with a commercial griddle. Whether you use it once a week or every day, it's very important to take care of your griddle in order to maintain cooking efficiency and to prevent flavor transfer. Since there are many different ways you can go about cleaning a griddle, we've provided you with some general tips and guidelines to follow, so you can continue to produce delicious meals for your customers. Shop All Griddle Cleaner Why Cleaning a Griddle is Important Whether you're cooking pancakes and crepes or burgers, sandwiches, and meats, it's important to clean and scrape your commercial griddle on a regular basis. When you cook any meal, fats, juices, and other food debris will be left on the griddle's surface. If this grease and grime isn't cleaned off, it will continually accumulate into a gummy layer which will then carbonize into a hard substance that's extremely difficult to remove. If you continue to cook on this surface, heat won't transfer as evenly and efficiently to the food being cooked, and it could cause the chicken being served at dinner to taste like the cheesesteak that was cooked at lunch. How to Clean a Commercial Griddle If you already know how to clean a commercial grill, then it'll be even easier to learn how to care for a griddle. A majority of commercial griddle plates used in foodservice establishments are crafted with a steel surface; however, there are many cooks who prefer using a chrome top griddle due to its greater heat retention qualities. It's important to note that chrome requires a slightly different cleaning routine than non-chromium surfaces, but they're still easy to clean, especially if you keep up with maintenance after every use. Cleaning Non-Chromium Surfaces 1. Use a grill scraper after every use to remove excess grease and food. You can easily scrape debris into the griddle's waste drawer and empty it once you're finished. 2. If the griddle is extremely soiled, use a griddle or grill brick while the surface is still warm to gently rub off caked-on grease and food. Make sure you rub in the direction of the grain so you don't ruin the steel surface. 3. At the end of every day, or sooner if needed, you should also empty, wash, and sanitize your waste drawer. Then, polish the front of the griddle with a clean cloth. 4. Once a week, unplug the unit and allow the griddle to cool completely. Use a fresh cleaning cloth and a non-abrasive griddle cleaner to clean the surface, and then thoroughly rinse with water. 5. After its weekly cleaning, you may need to re-season the surface depending on how often the griddle requires a heavy cleaning. Otherwise, apply a thin layer of cooking oil to help prevent rusting. Cleaning Chromium Surfaces 1. After every use, use a scraper to remove excess grease and food, and then wipe the surface with a damp cloth if desired. 2. At the end of every day, scrape the surface as you do in the first step, and then using a clean rag, clean the surface with a mixture of mild soap and water. Next, thoroughly wipe down the surface with a different wet cloth, polish the unit's front, and empty the waste drawer. When caring for a griddle with a chrome surface, never use the following: Pumice, griddle stones, or abrasives. A sharp instrument or spatula edge to remove food Steel wool Commercial liquid grill cleaner Whether you own a steel griddle or a chromium commercial griddle, it's important to take care of it to ensure efficient cooking. By regularly cleaning your griddle after every use in addition to performing routine weekly deep cleanings, you'll be able to keep your unit in top operating condition for years to come.

Use Commercial Griddles to Efficiently Cook Delicious Meals at Your Foodservice Business
Commercial flat top grills are a versatile cooking option for restaurants because they can be used to prepare a variety of popular foods. If you have an extensive breakfast menu, a griddle grill is going to allow you to cook most of those items at the same time. While homefries and hashbrowns are crisping up on one side of the flat top, you can fry eggs to order on the other side. Pancakes, sausages, and bacon can all be cooked on your griddle, and you can even adjust the heat with individual burners to create areas of low or high heat on the cook plate.
Countertop flat top grills are a flexible alternative to freestanding cooktops. With a countertop griddle, you have the option of placing the unit on any available countertop space as long as long as you have access to the required utilities and ventilation. Flat grills can be moved around more easily than a permanent unit, either for cleaning or to rearrange your layout.
Our selection of drop-in griddles includes regular and hibachi-style Teppanyaki griddles. Both of these options feature heating elements located in the center of the griddle for cooking food and cooler outer edges to warm cooked food. Both styles of commercial griddles are designed to mount flush with your existing countertops, making them perfect for businesses with limited space.
