What is White Glove service?

Standard common carrier delivery options cover the cost of getting an item to your shipping address but our White Glove delivery service does that and more!

The White Glove agent will call to schedule a Call Before Delivery within a four hour window, which gives you the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and to prepare the space where your item will be placed. Upon delivery, trained professionals will unload your large item from the truck, bring it into the room of choice, unpack the item and remove all packaging debris from the premises.

Please note that White Glove delivery will typically add 5 - 7 business days to your order's transit, and only includes 30 minutes of on-site time. If on-site time beyond 30 minutes is required, you may be responsible for additional fees. While the agents will bring the items into the location of your choice, this service does not include set-up of the items being delivered, such as installation of casters, shelves, or other accessories. Small items will not be unpackaged individually; they will be set in place and debris and packaging material will not be removed.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.

How To Clean A Charbroiler

See how easy it is to clean your charbroiler by watching this informative video!

Cleaning your charbroiler every day will make it last longer and produce better results. It's a good idea to wear cleaning gloves while you are cleaning your charbroiler. 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. After you've cleaned the tops, flip the grates over and clean the bottoms. Once the charbroiler has cooled completely, you can use a damp cloth or sponge dipped in soapy water to clean the rest of it. A ready-to-use degreaser like Formula-D can be used too. For really stubborn grease or carbon buildup, use a heavy duty degreaser 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 too. It's easiest to do this in a sink. Make sure you empty and clean the drip trays, too. Keeping water in the drip trays makes cleanup easier, and helps prevent grease fires. If you have a lava rock charbroiler, you might consider flipping 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.

How To Season A Charbroiler

Unpacking, cleaning, and seasoning your charbroiler is easy! Follow these simple steps, and you’ll be grilling up savory burgers and fish fillets in no time without the hassle of sticky grates.

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!
