Countertop Griddles

Countertop Griddles

A countertop griddle is an indispensable part of many restaurant kitchens. In fact, it’s the main piece of cooking equipment in many diners, burger joints, and steak shops! Often called a flattop grill or flattop griddle, countertop griddles come in a variety of sizes, griddle plate thicknesses, and materials. In this video, we’ll go over some of the factors involved with choosing the perfect griddle. First, you'll need to choose between a gas or an electric powered griddle. This depends on the utilities that you have available, but if given the choice, you’ll want to note that gas models achieve temperature faster and recover faster than electric models. But if electricity is cheaper than gas in your area, electric griddles are a sensible choice. If you need very fast recovery time and the ability to run on electricity, an induction griddle is the best choice, but note that they are more expensive. Griddle size is another important consideration. Factor your menu and production needs when choosing the size of your griddle. How much cooking surface space will you need to make food efficiently during your busiest times? Another crucial factor is the availability of space under the hood. Cooking on griddles will give off grease-laden vapors that must be under a hood. If your griddle is placed at the end of your cook line, you’ll want to make sure you have at least 6 inches of hood overhang on the end of the line. Make sure to choose a control type that works for you. There are two types of controls, manual and thermostatic. Manually controlled griddles have no thermostat, so the controls are high, low or something in between. Some experienced griddle cooks like manual controls for items like burgers, cheese steaks, and other meats. Thermostatically controlled griddles allow you to set an exact temperature. This is great for more delicate breakfast foods, and it is also good feature if you have less experienced staff. However, thermostatically controlled griddles do cost more. Plate, or cooking surface, thickness is another factor you’ll need to consider. The thicker the plate, the more heat it will hold. In addition, a thicker plate is generally more warp-resistant and will last longer. Standard duty plates, which are a ½” thick, are great for snack counters, breakfast items, or places with limited hours and just a few griddle foods on the menu. Medium duty plates, which are ¾” thick, are the most common and serve as great workhorses in many restaurant environments. Lastly, heavy duty plates, which are 1” thick, are perfect for high volume restaurants and burger shops. If you're a high production environment or cook a large amount of frozen product, a thicker plate is your best bet. The final factor to keep in mind is whether or not you’ll want a chrome griddle plate. Most traditional griddle plates are made from durable steel, but a chrome-plated steel griddle plate is easier to clean, is better for releasing delicate items like eggs, and will also release much less heat into your kitchen. However, chrome griddle plates are less durable than steel, so they're not the best choice in kitchens where you'll be chopping food product with the edge of a spatula when making items like steak sandwiches.

Customer questions about this product

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.

This Cooking Performance Group 36L 36" heavy-duty liquid propane 3-burner countertop griddle features energy saving thermostats that are adjustable from 200 to 575 degrees Fahrenheit. With precise temperature controls, it is an excellent choice for delicate breakfast foods like eggs and hotcakes, as well as your lunch menu of chicken, hamburgers, and other meats!

This Cooking Performance Group countertop griddle is made of stainless steel with a chrome plated griddle/cooktop that is both durable and extremely easy to clean, includes back and side splashes to protect your walls and countertops, and even has a full width waste tray to provide you with a complete package of excellent performance and worry-free maintenance! The chrome plated cooktop has an attractive bright and shiny appearance, making it ideal for front-of-house use. The chrome finish will also reduce flavor transfer and has better heat retention than standard steel plate griddles.

The chrome acts as an insulator and reduces the emission of radiant heat. It emits significantly less radiant heat than comparable non-chrome griddle plates. This decreases overall cooking times at lower temperatures and reduces added ambient heat to the kitchen. Unlike steel griddles, the chrome plate griddle does not absorb food particles. This greatly reduces flavor transfer, so ingredients with potent flavors such as onions and garlic will not carry-over into subsequent meals.

Cleaning the griddle is a cinch. Just simply scrape and scrub the griddle with a cleansing solution or water and then wipe off and polish the surface. On average, chrome griddles take 45% less time to clean than standard steel plate griddles. It boasts three powerful 30,000 BTU stainless steel U-shaped burners with standing pilots for instant ignition that work in perfect harmony with the thermostats to maintain your selected griddle temperature during peak cooking periods. Its flame failure protection system guarantees safety and peace of mind. The 3/4" thick, 36" wide chrome plated cooking surface features an impressive 20" depth that is sure to deliver all of the workspace needed. It has a rear gas connection and ships ready to connect to a liquid propane tank.

To ensure long-lasting service life and optimal performance, use only non-metallic utensils to prevent damage to the cooktop.
