A commercial charbroiler is a piece of equipment that is used to cook foods in an open or closed flame. These appliances are often used in restaurants and cafes, but they can also be used in a variety of other settings. There are many different types of charbroilers, and these appliances can be powered by gas, electricity, or even fuel oil.
Most commercial charbroilers are made from heavy-duty materials, and they are often extremely large and heavy. Some of the most common commercial charbroilers are gas or electric stand-alone grills, gas or electric griddles, or gas grills with a flat griddle. Depending on the model, these appliances can be very small, with a cooking surface of only a few inches, or much larger.
