A griddle is a cooking device consisting of a broad flat surface that may be heated using a variety of means, and is used in both residential and commercial applications for a variety of cooking operations. The griddle is most commonly a flat metal plate, but in the non-industrialized world or more traditional cultures it may be made of a brick slab or tablet.Tent Warehouse is a leading supplier of Flat Griddles in South Africa our Flat Griddles are made of quality materials and tested to international standard for all your catering needs.Most all residential and commercial griddles are heated directly or indirectly by flame or electrical elements.Each of the three primary characteristics of a commercial griddle (Plate, Heat Source and Temperature Control) can have a range of values that affect the performance of the overall unit. However, the design of any griddle follows the same basic functional requirements: large, flat, heated surface on which to cook food. Some of these foods may be cooked or scorched using a dry heat, but the most common means of using a griddle is through shallow frying, where a food product is either cooked in a relatively thin film of oil added by the chef (like chicken, hash browns, fish, etc….), or in oil or grease released by the food product as it is cooked (hamburgers, sausage, bacon and other foods for example).
