Everything about Gen2 ranges says the sky’s the limit with these magnificent workhorses. Beautifully designed for efficiency, power and reliability, Gen2 ranges have not only earned our 5 star rating and our Editors Choice Award, but they were also voted Best in Class by Food Service Equipment Supplies Magazine.
And it’s no wonder. Let’s look at the Gen2 Range 60-GEN2-10B-S26-NAT. With two 26-1/2″ ovens, a stainless front, landing range and backguard, and a holding range of 150-500 degrees, this baby can naturally do some heavy lifting! This exceptional piece of restaurant equipment is built to sustain the rigors of the toughest kitchen out there and still come out shining. Easy to clean and incredibly reliable, Gen2 ranges are a long time favorite of both chefs and line cooks around the country, and for good reason, too. It would seem that there’s nothing you can’t do with this bruiser.
That is, except put it in a residential home. In fact, the manufacturer will not honor the warranty if the range is installed in a residence or home. And most home insurance policies will be voided as well. That’s because commercial ranges like Gen2 ranges are built for volume. While installing commercial ranges has become a popular trend, its very important to understand what you are getting into. The warranty conditions, codes, and policies are there for a reason–because most homes are simply not designed to accommodate commercial restaurant equipment.
But if you have a commercial kitchen, there’s just about nothing you can’t do with Gen2 ranges. The world is your oyster, or duck, or seared scallop, or steak. Now we’re getting hungry just thinking about it!
We all know that shopping for a range can be overwhelming. When it comes down to it, there are many similar products out there, like the Cooking Performance Group (CPG) and Gen2 ranges, and it’s hard to know whether or not you’re getting the best deal. By paying attention to the price, the cost of shipping, tax, and product features, you can easily make an important purchase with confidence.
Cooking Performance Group and Gen2 ranges, for example, have very similar product features and offerings. With 30” ovens and six open burners in stainless steel, they both offer a spacious cooking platform and functional product features. The Gen2’s 1-year warranty for parts and labor is comparable to that of the Cooking Performance Group warranty, but Short Order’s exceptional customer service is a sure win for the Gen2.
ShortOrder’s Gen2 really pulls ahead of the Cooking Performance Group range with their low-price guarantee. Committed to being the low price leader, Gen2 and ShortOrder will meet and beat any legitimate advertised price from a competing restaurant equipment dealer for any item in their inventory. This means that 110% of the difference will be refunded on an identical item from another dealer. While many retailers may offer free shipping and tax-free purchases, the Gen2 will match and beat the lowest price and still ship it to you for free, unlike Cooking Performance Group.
Researching restaurant equipment before purchasing for your business is an important way to save money and maximize your budget. If you feel that an item is priced lower than on ShortOrder.com, feel free to contact us at 800-211-0282.
Have you ever heard of the mailard reaction? It’s the process by which grilled meat gets that delicious roast flavor and aroma. It can only happen when temperatures exceed 310 degrees, the kind of heat you find coming from Gen2 char broilers. Thank goodness for Gen2 char broilers, producing juicy steaks, hamburgers, chicken–all that charbroiled goodness can make your mouth water just thinking about it. Can’t you just imagine that subtle char offsetting the savory meat? That’s about the best tasting science you’ve ever put in your mouth!
But leave it to Gen2 to take a good thing and make it better. We offer both radiant broilers and char rock broilers in three sizes, every one of them receiving our Editors Choice award and our 5 star rating. If you take a look at the GEN2-RB-24C-NAT, for example, all you’ll see is quality. With stainless steel front and sides, insulation to conserve energy and removable radiants to prevent clogging, there was nothing we found that didn’t work about the design or functionality of this excellent piece of restaurant equipment. And of course, like all our products, we offer Gen2 char broilers at low prices with free shipping.
Gen2 char broilers bring something special to the kitchen that just can’t be beat. Your customers will love that beautiful char grilled taste and tell their friends about it. And with Gen2 char broilers, you know that you won’t need to fix it tomorrow or any time soon. Gen2 char broilers, just like all Gen2 products, offer the kind unparalleled quality and reliability that makes restaurant equipment worth having. And when you know you can please your customers time and again because your equipment always performs, it makes running your restaurant just that much easier. We think that’s pretty savory too!
Durable, safe and easy to clean, Gen2 fryers are the top choice of restaurant owners across the country. Crispy golden french fries wrapped in paper. Crunchy fried shrimp dipped in tart cocktail sauce. Soft bits of dough fried to perfection and covered in powdered sugar. Doughnuts, fry bread, fried fish, fried chicken–these are the items customers come back for time and again. If you’re going to reliably deliver the goods — the fried treats your customers demand — you’ll want the reliability of Gen2 fryers on your side.
If you’ve noticed, we’ve been featuring Gen2 products in the last few weeks. That’s because, when it comes to restaurant equipment, nothing compares to the consistent quality of Gen2. For example, the Gen2-F3-NAT natural gas Gen2 fryers were voted “Best In Class” by Food Service Supplies Magazine. This fryer, like all of our Gen2 products, has earned our Editor’s Choice award and 5 star rating. With a stainless steel fry tank, a cool zone for easy cleaning and range of 200º-400º, these 40-pound capacity Gen2 fryers really do the trick. We also offer an LP version of the F3, as well as the even heftier 70-pound capacity Gen2 fryers, also fitted for both Natural Gas and LP.
Gen2 fryers come standard with everything you need to install a reliable piece of restaurant equipment. However, if more flexibility is what you desire, accessories are also available. And, like all the products we offer at Short Order, we offer our Gen2 fryers at the lowest prices possible and include free shipping! When most companies offer low prices, they make up the difference in shipping costs. That’s just not the way we do business here at Short Order. So where would you go for better quality at a better price? Frankly, we have no idea.
Gen2 ranges bring some important questions to mind. For instance, have you ever wondered why that collection of cooking surfaces in your kitchen is called a range? In fact, the word “range” has a variety of meanings. The word can refer to a testing area for rockets, an spacious expanse of open land, or a variation from one extreme to the other. If you think about it, etymology aside, a kitchen range should be all of these things.
Quality ranges, such as Gen2 ranges, should be spacious, with plenty of room for culinary creativity. And quality ranges should allow for cooking at the lowest and highest temperatures, all the while maintaining a steady source of heat. True to its name, a range should also have the responsiveness and flexibility required to be a “testing area” for new dishes.
Gen2 Ranges embody all the qualities that their title implies. This restaurant equipment performs with unbelievable reliability and responsiveness. In fact, Gen2 ranges were voted “Best in Class” by Food Service Equipment Magazine. That’s why, at Short Order, we are proud to offer a robust selection of Gen2 Ranges in a variety of sizes, from the 24-inch, 4 burner Gen2 Range 24-GEN2-4B-S20 – NAT, all the way up to the workhorse, 60-inch, 10 burner Gen2 Range 60-GEN2-10B-S26-NAT. Now that’s a wide range of options!
Performance is everything at Gen2, and it shows in their Gen2 Ranges as well as their griddles, char broilers and fryers. That’s why we gave the entire line of Gen2 Ranges our Editors Choice award and a 5-star rating. You just can’t go wrong with Gen2 Ranges. In fact, you’ll be so thrilled with the performance of Gen2 Ranges, and the sense of freedom that comes from knowing your equipment is reliable, you might just be caught singing, “Oh, Home on the Range.”
Relatively new to the restaurant equipment market, Gen2 Griddles are (true to their name) the next generation of high-performance griddles. Griddles have a special place in the history of American food. In the homes of farmers from the northeast to the deep south; from the pioneer homesteads to the gold mining towns out West; griddles have been cooking our flapjacks, johnny cakes, fried eggs and fat back for centuries. How cooks managed to cook meals for large families and farm hands on a single cast iron stove is beyond the comprehension of most of us these days. But what today’s restaurant owners and yesterday’s cooks have in common is the need to serve many with great efficiency and culinary skill.
Whether you are cooking the perfect pancake or searing a scallop, you need a cooking surface that provides even, consistent heat to serve every customer every time. Gen2 Griddles are getting high marks for product reliability, performance and user-friendly designs. Take, for instance, a favorite in the line of Gen2 Griddles, the GEN2-TG-24C-NAT. This 24-inch countertop cooking dynamo features a precise and reliable thermostat to help maintain perfect cooking conditions. With 22,000 BTU/hr energy output, these two burners can really keep up! And if the demands of your hungry customers have you looking for something a little heftier among the Gen2 Griddles, take a look at the GEN2-TG-48C-NAT. This 48-inch, four burner gas griddle is an excellent choice for feeding the hungry mob. Both of these fine Gen2 griddles received our Editors Choice award and our highly prized 5-star rating.
Short Order is proud to offer a wide variety of Gen2 Griddles. We feel that our Gen2 Griddles are some of the best griddles out there. In fact, if they had awards for griddles at the County Fair, we know Gen2 Griddles would come home with the prize.
