Operation is simple and intuitive too, thanks to the 3 large control knobs located on the front of the unit. These controls independently operate the burners, so you can set each side of the griddle to best suit your cooking task.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

My business is at a high elevation; does this change anything when I order gas cooking equipment?
Many gas equipment manufacturers need to make adjustments to the equipment so it operates correctly at elevations over 2,000 feet. Sometimes we can special order from the manufacturer and have your cooking equipment delivered ready-to-go, but in cases where your unit is in stock and waiting to ship, you’ll need to have a qualified service technician come to your location and alter your unit at the time of installation so that it is compatible with a higher elevation. Contact our Special Orders team prior to placing your order, and we will let you know what will work best for the equipment you are planning to purchase.
I see that this gas unit is "field-convertible." What does that mean?
Gas equipment is factory-set to use either natural gas or liquid propane. Field-convertible equipment allows your unit to accept the other gas type (so for example a natural gas unit could be converted to use liquid propane), but this conversion must happen before it is used. For safety reasons, we recommend having a qualified service professional perform the conversion.

    Avantco always puts out quality products. This exact griddle I had in my previous restaurant. Not once did it give us any trouble which is the reason I purchased again.

    This exceeded my expectations, we bought it for our food trailer is practical and very professional, a bit heavy due to the thickness of the iron but easy to install.
    Good for food truck and other businesses depending on the size. Only giving it 4 stars because the little tunnel where the grease falls through fell off and I don't know how to put it back on without if falling off again. We converted to propane. It's kinda tricky but we managed. I give it 4 stars
    This is a great griddle for the price. It has zone cooking and the thermostat range give you great latitude. The avantco brand is a great product.
    I like this griddle a lot. It was my first ever owning a griddle so I was surprised at how hot it got and in such a short time. It is really heavy but works great in a food truck. It has been amazing for our grilled chicken.
    great griddle. it takes a while to get to temp but thats because the steel is really thick. controls are a little hard to get right but we use it on the lowest setting and it works really good. have to turn off when not in use. the only bad thing is that it needs a stand.
    You get what you pay for. Easy to clean. Griddle top does not warp too bad with use. Random days depending on outside temp is either too cold and takes forever to come up on temp or way too hot even with flames real low. But temp management and your all set. Great starter griddle.
    Awesome flattop and prices great. We ran this unit 14 hours a day and it’s easy to light and easy to use. One recommendation is turn all burners on same temp. These get hot fast!
    This flat top grill works just as good as brand name flat tops. I would highly recommend this advantco flat top for those looking for quality at great price.
    Excellent Mid-Line Griddle with Plenty of BTU's! These are quality built and easy to mount and use for our customers. Avantctco builds a quality product that our customers love.
    Love the color! nice unit just the right size for my food truck! I was also happy with the price as your web site had the lowest prices compared to other equipment sellers.
    Such an awesome gas griddle to have in the kitchen! The three burners makes it easy to cook different food items. It’s durable and so easy to clean!
    Great product we will be getting an other set of these babies to finish out the new build. this item is priced right ! +
