American Griddle


American Griddle’s patented Steam Shell technology brings solutions to your kitchen never before possible. Unlike conventional griddles that have hot and cold spots, slow recovery, and extreme spikes in temperature, the Steam Shell Griddle offers perfect uniform temperatures across the entire cooking surface. Plus, with the Steam Shell lid, your product is cooked from the top and bottom at the same time, retaining product moisture and reducing most cook times by up to 50%. No matter where food is placed on the griddle, adjacent areas maintain exact temperature. With no hot or cold spots on the surface to cause varying cook times, this griddle is very forgiving to inexperienced cooks. More food can be cooked in the same amount of space, in half the time. In fact, a three foot Steam Shell can replace most six foot models in the field.


Steam Shell technology actually improves food quality, as compared to food cooked on a conventional griddle or clamshell.  That’s right, our griddle improves food quality.

We’re not suggesting you’ve got bad recipes or don’t know how to cook; we’re merely pointing out that adding steam allows food to retain its natural flavor and moisture.  By doing so, you’re actually serving your customers with higher quality food. Shrimp won’t over cook and serves crisp and hot. Hamburgers are flavorful and retain their mouthwatering natural moisture.
Chicken breast never dries out and retains enough moisture to be cut with a plastic fork.

With the Steam Shell Griddle, foods are cooked to perfection every time! By providing a continuous and precise source of heat, the Steam Shell Griddle guarantees reliable and consistent cook times. Through our revolutionary steam heating process, surface temperatures never fluctuate, resulting in a steady and reliable source of heat all day long. With the consistent cook times offered by the Steam Shell Griddle, foods will always yield the same result regardless of the amount of product being cooked. This allows significant reductions in cook times while, also improving food quality and safety.

Our steam heated cooking surface offers instant temperature recovery, so the griddle surface temperature remains consistent across every square inch. Therefore, cook times and products will remain consistent throughout the day. The Steam Shell lid system injects fresh steam to cook food from the top, in conjunction with the steam heated griddle surface. The consistent and even surface temperatures will greatly reduce under and overcooked waste.
