Salamander Broilers

Quickly and completely broil, braise, or finish delicious meals with commercial broiler ovens.

A commercial broiler will produce consistent results by searing meats, vegetables, and other products to their ideal internal temperatures, making it perfect for high-end steakhouses, casual restaurants, or diners that specialize in hearty cuisine. Commercial broilers quickly and effectively cook or char food by exposing it to high heat. Restaurant broilers can be used to roast meats, melt cheese, finish entrees, and more.

You can cook succulent steaks, flavorful veggies, and other dishes to golden-brown perfection using a commercial upright broiler. A commercial broiler will produce consistent results by searing dishes to the optimum interior temperatures. Because certain broiler systems use infrared burners to cook food while retaining its natural fluids, they offer excellent cooking.

Whether you are looking to quickly broil a steak or just melt some cheese atop your appetizer, commercial broilers are versatile options for your cooking equipment roster.


Commercial Salamanders & Cheese Melters

Salamanders and cheese melters finish foods rapidly right before serving them by employing a concentrated blast of heat to cook only the top layer of food in a dish or pan. By adding a crisp, browned, or grilled look to your orders, customers will be presented with distinct and appetizing looking dishes.

This type of equipment is not ideal for fully preparing meals from the start, but these finishing broilers are ideal for toasting, glazing, and broiling items right before serving. Start by thoroughly cooking dishes in a commercial range or commercial oven, before completing them in a broiler or cheesemelter.

These units are commonly found in restaurants, concession stands, cafeterias, and other fast-paced foodservice operations. View our collection of concession cooking equipment to fully stock your stand.
