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.

Vulcan MSA24-C0100P NAT Details

This Vulcan MSA24-C0100P 24" countertop natural gas griddle with piezo ignition heats evenly and delivers superior cooking performance no matter what you're cooking! Featuring a Rapid Recovery composite plate with a stainless steel surface and an aluminum core, this griddle provides extremely quick recovery so you can get more output from your griddle! Also, the aluminum core keeps the plate evenly heated to minimize hot or cold spots while the stainless steel top surface is easier to clean than a standard steel plate. Two high-output "U" shaped burners deliver 54,000 BTU of power for maximum efficiency, and are spread 12" apart on the griddle surface. Independent controls with a 150-450 degrees Fahrenheit temperature range provide outstanding recovery and response time.

For long-lasting durability that withstands a harsh commercial environment, this unit boasts a fully welded stainless steel body with an aluminized frame. The front ledge features a "cool bullnose" design that helps prevent your employees from burning themselves on the prep line. 4" adjustable legs raise the unit to a more comfortable working height, and when it's time for a thorough cleaning, a 6 qt. removable grease drawer both eases and expedites the process. A natural gas connection is required.
