Vulcan Griddles and Char Broilers

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Not too long ago, we posted about whether you preferred making hamburgers with griddles or char broilers at your restaurant. Now, we’d like to spotlight Vulcan griddles and char broilers, which we proudly offer here at If you’re looking for restaurant equipment to make hamburgers or other tasty grilled items, definitely consider Vulcan griddles and char broilers.

Griddles are a flat metal plate made of steel, cast iron or aluminum. Food is cooked on them, and they’re especially useful for cooking different kinds of food — hashbrowns, eggs and pancakes, for example — at once without taste contamination.

If you want to bring the taste of the backyard grill inside, char broilers may be the way to go. You can get grill marks on products and that undeniable grill flavor by using radiant heat or char rocks.

Vulcan Griddles

Talk about dependability: Vulcan griddles are durable and able to handle your toughest jobs. From gas griddles to electric griddles, we have what you need — and several are rated five stars and recognized as Editor’s Choice winners here at ShortOrder. There’s the Vulcan Gas Griddle MGG48-NAT, a recipient of both the Editor’s Choice and five-star ratings. This is a low-profile heavy-duty gas griddle with a stainless steel front, sides and 4-inch front top ledge. It has a large capacity stainless steel grease drawer and an electronic ignition.

There’s also the Vulcan Electric Griddle RRE48D-208/3, a heavy-duty electric griddle with stainless steel 4-inch back and tapered side splashes.

Vulcan Char Broilers

Vulcan char broilers are also dependable and well-known for their outstanding quality. And like Vulcan griddles, there are several five-star and Editor’s Choice-rated Vulcan char broilers at ShortOrder. The Vulcan Char Broiler VCCB36-1-NAT is one such unit.
