A timeless kitchen appliance, the salamander grill is as much at home in a 1950s-style American diner as in a French bistro. By heating the food using an overhead element, the grill heats dishes quickly and creates appetising browning on the top of the food – perfect for anything from toast to crème brulée! This versatile and infinitely useful item of catering equipment will become a key player in your kitchen once you realise its many uses!
Tasty, golden-brown food, fresh from the grill
A salamander grill is a compact alternative to a combination oven/grill or an ideal addition to your oven to expand your repertoire or turnaround. These grills are great for heating pre-prepared meals or keeping them warm for service, but they are also perfect for so much more than that! Without the mess and effort of a real charcoal grill, you get the charring and caramelisation that only intense direct heat can deliver – perfect for meats such as koftas or marinated chicken breast, or for quick-roasted vegetables, and much more. You can also use a salamander grill to toast bread for breakfast service or as part of a deli sandwich, and these grills are even suited for gratinating dishes – that is, melting a crusty, golden layer of cheese on top – a popular favourite! Salamander grills are a perfect solution for snack bars, food trucks and other catering operations where space is tight; these grills are easy to move, meaning they are even ideal for mobile catering services. The specialised toast grills also have a small countertop footprint and are perfect for hotels or breakfast buffets – they are so easy to use that you can even place the grill on the buffet table to allow the guests to toast their own bread. We source our professional quality salamander grills from trusted brand Royal Catering, who manufacture high-quality products that enable you to create mouth-watering dishes.
