Menu variety comes from three main sources: ingredients, chef creativity, and the foodservice equipment to put them both together. With limited space, though, a commercial kitchen is often limited by the types of equipment that can fit.
Foodservice operators will often have to decide between one piece of equipment over another -- a fryer or a refrigerator, a salamander or a wood smoker. But the reality is, they don't have to. There's an easy way to build the commercial kitchen battery you've always wanted.

Infrared broilers combine speed, efficiency, and output. The unit features 1450ºF infrared tile temperature that preheats in 90 seconds. It quickly penetrates meat to lock in natural juices and reduce broiling times by as much as 50 percent.
