Commercial Broilers and Upright Broilers

Skip to footer

Upright broilers are tall, vertical broilers mounted above the cooking surface. They are often used for cooking large cuts of meat, such as a whole turkey or a roast. Upright broilers are often easier to use than traditional ovens, as you don’t need to turn the meat or rotate the roasting pan. They also help to reduce the risk of accidentally spilling hot liquids or dropping something on the oven floor. Commercial broilers are often large, industrial-sized versions of the type of broilers you might have in your home kitchen. They are typically used for cooking large amounts of food, like in a restaurant or cafeteria. As such, they may have additional safety features, like extra-thick insulation or a stand-off distance to the cooking surface, to help prevent fire risk. They are often used in large restaurants or commercial kitchens to cook large batches of meat, like steaks or chicken. Both broilers are made from materials that can withstand high temperatures, such as cast iron, stainless steel, and porcelain enamel.
