How to pick the right griddle.
• The thicker plates are more suitable for heavy loads, because they store heat for peak periods.
• Manual griddles and thermostatic griddles that incorporate the bypass type thermostat (GT & RD80) can be
used for two temperature cooking, but you have to turn off 1 or 2 valves at one end. While this is not completely accurate
it will allow the customer to cook at lower temperature on one end. Griddles shorter than 48" in length should not be
purchased for two temperature cooking. It's always better to use two separate griddles if you know the customer intends
to use two-temperature cooking.
• All manual griddles and thermostatic griddles that incorporate the bypass
type thermostat (GT & RD80 Series) require that some of the valves be turned off during slow periods.
• For more accurate temperature control, choose the RD85 or RD100, these griddles incorporate
solid-state controls and the sensor is embedded into the plate for more responsive action. For heavy frozen loads you can't
kill the RD100.
