What is the difference between a salamander and a cheesemelter?

  • Cheesemelters are only finishing ovens whereas the salamander can be used as both a finishing oven and a cooking oven.
  • Cheesemelters have a lower heat than salamanders. Because they’re being used as a cooking oven and a finishing oven, the salamanders can get quite hot.
  • Salamanders generally use infrared elements, whereas cheesemelters usually use a ceramic element.
  • Do I need a hood?

    For cheesemelters, a hood is not necessary. Salamanders reach a higher heat and actually cook food so, you probably will. Check your local codes and regulations to be sure.
