Maintaining grills and griddles is important from a safety standpoint since grease buildup is a big fire hazard.

When choosing a grill, operators should determine what type suits the menu and operation.

Grills have heat sources located below the cooking grate, while griddle controls determine how much thermal energy is stored.

Countertop griddles are typically categorized as heavy-duty countertop cooking equipment and are versatile workhorses that have a central location in many kitchen equipment lineups.

Clamshell griddles simultaneously cook food on both sides, making this equipment a popular back-of-house option for high-volume foodservice operations since it can cut cooking time by more than 50 percent.

Although griddles are a basic piece of equipment, failure to regularly clean and maintain these units will compromise their performance and service life. For both electrical and gas types, proper installation plays a key role in mitigating grease buildup, which is a fire hazard and will compromise a griddle’s service life.
