Vulcan 900RX and MSA Series Griddle Demonstration

Vulcan 900RX and MSA Series Griddle Demonstration

In this video, we’re going to demonstrate operation of the Vulcan 900RX and MSA gas griddles. [Lighting the Pilot] 900RX griddles come standard with a dual ignition system: electric and manual. MSA griddles are built standard with only a manual ignition system. For electric pilot lighting, push and hold the power switch in the On position. While continuing to hold the power switch in the on position depress and hold the red button on the pilot safety valve. Verify the pilot has been ignited. After it has been burning for 45 seconds, release the red button. For manual pilot lighting, depress and hold the red button. Reach under the front of the unit to light the corresponding pilot with an outside ignition source. Verify the pilot has been ignited after it has been burning for 45 seconds, release the red button. [Using the Griddle] Pre-heat the griddle for 20 to 25 minutes before cooking. We recommend seasoning the cooking surface with a light coat of oil before first use and after every cleaning to reduce cooked product from sticking. Each 12-inch section has a separate snap action thermostat for accurate temperature control, allowing you to cook a variety of products simultaneously. Throughout service, clean the griddle cooking surface regularly with a griddle scraper. At the end of service, allow griddle to cool down to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Apply room temperature water and clean with the griddle scraper to remove debris. Empty the grease drawer as needed throughout service and at a minimum empty at the end of service. Thoroughly clean the griddle backsplash, sides, and front. [Shutting Off Griddle] To shut off the griddle, turn thermostats to the Off position. For more information on operating your 900RX or MSA griddles, refer to the operations manual on the Vulcan website.

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 MSA36-30 Details

Upgrade your restaurant's grilling capabilities by adding this Vulcan MSA36-30 36" countertop natural gas deep griddle 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 steel griddle plate is ideal for your high volume business since its thick design provides greater heat retention and faster recovery for your busiest breakfast shifts.

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. 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 natural gas connection is required for operation.
