Faster Cook Times with American Griddle


Effectively and quickly cooking food is a staple of restaurants, but it's easy for things to fall short in both areas. Without the right equipment, your food just won't turn out as good as it should.

In addition to slow cook and hold ovens, Thermodyne also represents a line of steam griddles known as American Griddle. The 3’ HP steam griddle, by the American Griddle Corporation, features patented Steam Shell technology that brings solutions to your kitchen never before possible. The 3’ HP steam griddle offers perfect uniform temperatures across the entire cooking surface. The circulating heat source, provided by Steam Shell technology, means you never have to worry about extreme drops or spikes in surface temperature.

Steam Griddles Cook Faster

A major benefit of the steam griddle is its ability to cook quickly. Not only do you have the even-temperature cooking surface to keep things consistent, but American Griddle’s steam griddles also offer a Steam Shell lid system. This both traps steam over the food as well as inject new, hot steam on top of it, reducing cooking times by as much as 50%.

Food Tastes Better on a Griddle

In addition to cooking quickly, you'll find that what you make on an American Griddle steam griddle tastes delicious. A major part of this is the even-temperature cooking surface mentioned before. Thanks to our steam-heating method, the griddle's surface always stays at a consistent temperature regardless of how much food you put on it. This also allows for precise temperature control, in addition to near-instant temperature adjustment. This means your food cooks evenly without the danger of hot spots, producing better results than a traditional griddle, skillet, or other cooking surfaces.
