Service Tips: Cheese Melters/Salamanders 

Cheese melters are one of the simpler pieces of equipment in a commercial kitchen. They can provide the finishing touch for cheeseburgers and other very popular menu items. 

  • Before cleaning, unplug electrical units and let them cool down. Wipe the cheese melter down with soapy water and a non-abrasive sponge. 
  • Some manufacturers recommend avoiding abrasive materials like steel wool. Others make exceptions for stubborn stains. If using an abrasive material, scrub in the direction of the metal’s grain.
  • Check electrical cords to ensure they are tight and not frayed. Have cords that show wear and tear replaced.
  • Remove the drip tray and grill at least once a day and clean off any crumbs, melted cheese and other food debris. 
  • Troubleshooting a cheese melter is simple. If a unit isn’t heating properly, check to make sure the unit is plugged in and turned on. If it is, a service call is likely needed.
