Factors to Consider When Purchasing a Commercial Grill

A grill is one of the most common pieces of commercial equipment when it comes to restaurants. It doesn’t matter what type of food is being served, what the demographic is, what time of day the place is open, or what the prices on the menu are listed at, a grill is a staple part of every food establishment.

If you’re a bit overwhelmed with the entire process of finding your next commercial grill, keep reading. We are about to cover a few of the things that you want to take into consideration when shopping around for a new commercial grill. Let’s get started!

 

Size

One of the very first things that you’re going to need to determine is the size of grill that you’d like to invest in. Size will become a significant factor in a couple of ways. For starters, you want to make sure that you have enough room in your commercial kitchen to fit the grill that you purchase. If you already have a commercial grill that you’re going to be replacing, make sure to take measurements of the grill that’s currently there and of the space that you’re going to be filling.

Another place that size comes in will be the amount of food that you’re hoping to prepare on your grill at any given time. Depending on how you run your kitchen, you may do large quantities of prep to get ready for the rush. Other kitchens, on the other hand, will need enough space so that they can quickly serve up fresh food. Take some time to figure out what the flow of your kitchen is like and then determine what size grill would cater to those needs.

Grid Thickness and Material

Once you’ve determined which size grill you’ll need, you can start to focus on the details of the grill that contribute to both the look and taste of your food. The material and thickness of the grill grid are most often where we like to start. These particular details of the grill can make a world of difference when it comes to preparing meals. The thicker grids are known for retaining heat and flavor, helping to create a memorable smokey taste with your meals. Thick grids are also known for lasting much longer, making them an investment you can justify.

Mobility

Every kitchen’s layout and flow are very different. What works for one kitchen may be another kitchen’s worst nightmare. With that in mind, make sure that to keep your kitchen’s needs in mind as you narrow down grill options that will work for you. Mobility is one of the many requests that we hear when helping a restaurant owner find their next commercial grill.

There are a few reasons that owners and cooks prefer these types of grills, but the most common reasons are often safety and cleanliness. Grills are easily one of the most heavily used pieces of equipment in food-serving businesses. Between the grease build up and the crumbs from food, it’s not surprising that there’s quite a bit of cleanup that needs to happen behind and around the grill. With grills that are mobile, kitchen staff can move the grill, get behind it, and clean that space.
