Despite their quirky name, you will find a salamander in most thriving commercial kitchens. Whilst salamanders are sometimes known as upside down grills, these innovative pieces of commercial cooking equipment usually have heating elements at the top of the grill instead of the bottom. This means that the heat radiates downwards, allowing you to apply heat to food from above. With this function in place, with a salamander you can grill, top toast and finish off ingredients such as cheese, mornays and toppings with ease. Salamanders can also be used to keep parts of a cooked meal warm and toasty whilst the rest of an order is being prepared. Salamanders are a truly versatile piece of commercial catering equipment and if you peek behind the scenes of a busy restaurant, you are likely to find one or two tireless working away.
The key advantage of salamanders over traditional commercial grills is that they often have drip trays in the base. This feature ensures that crumbs, fat and oil dip safely into the catchment tray, protecting the grilling elements and reducing the risk of fires and equipment damage. The most common use of these appliances is to reheat food or keep dishes warm and toasty while the rest of an order is being prepared. With a salamander on your side, you can melt cheese to perfection over tangy nachos or your next mouth-watering chicken parma.
For a great time saving piece of commercial cooking equipment, you can't go past a quality Salamander. With heat radiating from above, they will add that perfect touch of heat to any plate of food and do so quickly and efficiently with just a minimum of space in your kitchen.
