Incredible Efficiency

With this unit you can keep a variety of ingredients in the chef base, pull them out for an order, and charbroil it all within the same workspace! This helps keep employees positioned at a versatile work station while improving the overall traffic flow of the kitchen.

Powerful Burners

This particular charbroiler boasts 6 powerful 40,000 BTU stainless steel U-shaped burners to heat your included lava briquettes, which in turn evenly distribute the heat toward your food while catching the drippings to create that unmistakably smoky "outdoor barbecue" scent and flavor.

Reversible Cast Iron Grates

The reversible cast iron top grates give your meats tantalizing grill marks, sporting a thin side that's perfect for searing and a thick side that's great for your more delicate foods. They can also be used in a flat or sloped position so that you can simultaneously cook various foods to the desired level of doneness!

Durable Charboriler

Thanks to its stainless steel construction, a full width waste tray, and the ability to remove the cast iron grates, radiant covers, and stainless steel burners without tools, the charbroiler is both durable and extremely easy to clean! It has a 3/4" rear gas connection and ships ready to connect to a natural gas supply, but includes a liquid propane orifice kit for simple field conversion.

Heavy-Duty Chef Base

Not only do you receive the charbroiler, but you get a 4 drawer refrigerated base to place it on, as well! This particular chef base features a durable 1 3/4" stainless steel top that can hold up to 730 lb. and is equipped with a marine edge to contain drips and spills for easy cleanup. For maximum capacity, each drawer can hold up to 2 full size food pans (sold separately).

Robust Refrigeration System

The 1/5 hp refrigeration system circulates R-134a refrigerant and is easily operated by its electronic temperature control, which allows you to set the unit to hold prepared foods and ingredients at temperatures between 33 and 41 degrees Fahrenheit.

Built to Last

Plus, the cabinet is made of 20 gauge stainless steel inside and out for durability, and for greater ease of cleaning, it rests on (4) 4" casters so that you can move it away from the wall. This refrigerated chef base requires a 115V electrical connection for operation.

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.
What kinds of pans can I use in my refrigerated prep table?
While various configurations combining traditional 1/3 size, 1/6 size, and other food pan sizes are possible, it's important to refer to your equipment's Specification Sheet and/or Owner's Manual to see what pan sizes and configurations are recommended. Certain accessories may be needed in order to use pans of a different size than what is recommended. It is also important to note that mixing and matching pans from different manufacturers may result in the pans not fitting properly.

Cleaning your charbroiler every day will make it last longer and produce better results. While the charbroiler is still hot, but not on, use a wire brush and scraper to remove any stuck-on particles of food or fat from the grates. It's a good idea to wear cleaning gloves while you are cleaning your charbroiler. After you've cleaned the tops, flip the grates over and clean the bottoms. Once the charbroiler has cooled completely, use a damp cloth or sponge dipped in soapy water to clean the rest of it. A ready-to-use de-greaser like Formula-D can be used too. For really stubborn grease or carbon buildup, use a heavy duty de-greaser like Blast. It works best on a warm surface, and make sure you thoroughly rinse it off after use. On a radiant charbroiler, you'll want to clean the radiants. It's easiest to do this in a sink. Make sure you empty and clean the drip trays. Keeping water in the drip trays makes cleanup easier, and helps prevent grease fires. If you have a lava rock charbroiler, you should flip over the stones every few weeks to get any accumulated grease on the tops to burn off. Most manufacturers recommend changing the stones at least twice per year, but you may need to do so more frequently depending on your usage level.

Getting your brand new charbroiler cleaned, seasoned, and ready to use is easy! A properly seasoned charbroiler will produce better tasting food. Plus, it will last longer, resist rusting better, and be easier to clean. Follow these easy steps to season your charbroiler. After you’ve uncrated your charbroiler and hooked it up, it’s a good idea to wash the exterior with a mild detergent. Next, light all the burners and leave them at the maximum setting for 30 minutes. This will burn off any oils, dust, or protective coatings from the shipping and manufacturing processes. After the grates have cooled completely, you’ll want to season them to prevent sticking. First, coat the grates with a high-heat cooking spray or oil like Canola oil. It’s a good idea to wipe them with a paper towel or cloth to make sure you have them covered evenly. Next, turn all your burners on high and leave them on for 30 minutes or until your charbroiler stops smoking. Turn off the burners and let the unit cool off. Now your charbroiler is seasoned and ready to use!
