Charbroil Grill Review

Charbroil grills are esssential in many types of foodservice operations. From diners and burger joints; to food trucks and catered events, charbroilers provide a great way to prepare many foods including burgers, fish, grilled chicken, seared vegetables and more. Using radiant heat, charbroilers enable cooks to prepare food at high temperatures, from 550 degrees and higher, in order to achieve that char-broiled taste, smoky flavor, and popular grill marks that are the trademarks of these highly sought-after foods.

Charboilers come in several types including gas and electric models, countertop and floor models, indoor and outdoor models. Choosing the best charbroiler for your needs will require assessing the amount of food you cook at once; the types of food you will be cooking; and your space availability. If you cook large quantities, you may need adequate floor space for a floor model charbroiler, if charbroiling accompanies other food styles, you may need counterspace for a countertop model.  In addition, will you be using the charbroiler for back-of-the-house applications, or as a food station for performance cooking?  Are you a caterer who does special events, and who will require an outdoor grill for large parties? 

This charbroiler review will discuss the features and benefits of four popular charbroilers, and will help you hone in what your requirements are, and assist you in deciding which charbroiler will work for you in your foodservice operation.
