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.
How should I care for my chrome top griddle?
Chrome top griddles offer many advantages over traditional steel plate griddles, but to keep them in top condition, special precautions should be taken. Sharp contact with the griddle surface, such as chopping meat, is not recommended. This will help to minimize deep scratches and abrasions. Teflon or other non-metal utensils are highly recommended.

Your griddle should be cleaned with warm, soapy water. Gentle scrubbing with a green scouring pad will take care of any spots that are more stubborn. Harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaning tools should be avoided, as they can damage the chrome surface.

Vulcan MSA36 Details

Upgrade your restaurant's grilling capabilities by adding this Vulcan MSA36-24C 36" liquid propane chrome top commercial griddle / grill with snap-action thermostatic controls to your cooking lineup. Featuring a powerful 27,000 BTU U-shaped aluminized steel burner for every 12" of griddle plate, this unit offers a total of 81,000 BTU. The 1" thick polished chrome griddle plate is ideal for your high volume business since its thick design provides less heat to the air, while still transferring heat to your products so that they are cooked perfectly every time.

Each burner is equipped with its own independent snap-action thermostat so that you can ensure the proper temperature in each section of the griddle plate. The thermostatic controls have a temperature range of 200-550 degrees Fahrenheit, making this unit a great choice for a variety of cooking tasks from melting quesadillas to searing french toast and browning breakfast sausage. This model has a separate pilot for each pair of burners, and a safety feature shuts off the gas entirely if the pilots should ever go out accidentally.

This griddle has a fully welded stainless steel and aluminized steel chassis frame for longer product life and a "cool bullnose" front ledge design for greater employee safety. However, the chrome plated griddle top is what undoubtedly sets this unit apart from the rest of the competition. You'll notice a difference from the moment you look at the shiny, mirror-like reflective surface. In addition to its sleek and professional appearance, the chrome top offers a multitude of benefits that your kitchen will appreciate. It radiates less heat to the air, but still transfers heat to your burgers, steaks, and other products more efficiently than a traditional griddle. Cleaning the griddle is also a cinch. Just simply scrape and scrub the griddle with water and then wipe off and polish the surface. On average, chrome griddles take 45% less time to clean than standard steel plate griddles saving you time and money. Not only that, this griddle boasts an astronomical 30% or more energy savings over traditional griddles, leaving you with more room in your budget and your cooks cooler and more refreshed.

A 4" stainless steel backsplash and tapered side splashes protect your walls and surrounding equipment from grease spatter. To make grease management easier, you can count on this model's 3 1/2" grease gutter and a fully welded grease chute to prevent grease migration. When you are ready to clean up for the day, it's fast and easy to empty this unit's 6 qt. grease drawer. Four 4" adjustable legs keep this unit up off the counter so that you can easily clean underneath. A liquid propane gas connection is required for operation.
