Commercial Salamander Cooking Equipment

Salamander cooking equipment is an important addition to most commercial kitchens. If you've never heard of a salamander cooker before, it's not quite what it sounds like it might be. 

In the US and Canada, a salamander kitchen appliance is simply known as a broiler. Broiling is a type of grilling where heat is applied from above, which is what differentiates it from ordinary grilling, where the heat is applied from below.

The science of the salamander grill is that by applying heat from the top, it removes less juices and fats than regular grilling, but more than would be the case with roasting or baking.

A salamander oven is basically the same appliance, but with a door, so you can switch between roasting and broiling at different stages of cooking, to add that little extra finesse to the result.

The more commonly encountered kitchen salamander appliance tends to be the grill version, because many chefs who use a salamander for cooking feel comfortable with pairing a salamander grill with a regular oven, rather than paying extra for a door on the salamander appliance itself.

High Quality Electric & Gas Salamander Grills

You can choose between an electric salamander or gas salamander, and gas is recommend for most commercial kitchens because it's more economical and can reach higher temperatures more quickly. Electric salamanders are a good choice when you need a very consistent and precise cooking temperature.

The main reason to consider buying one is because it gives you more options in the way you cook the food, and customers really appreciate the unique signature of broiling.

High temperatures are important in both grilling and broiling, as if you use a lower temperature, the internal moisture content will be wrong, and you won't get that appealing char-grilled look on the outside.

What to Look Out For in a Salamander Cooker

A salamander grill needs to be capable of reaching higher temperatures than a regular grill, because when heat is applied from above, some of the energy is lost due to diffusion and air displacement.
