Buying a commercial griddle? Here’s What You Need To Know
There are a number of things you’ll need to think about before finally making your decision about which griddle to purchase.
The first logical choice you’ll need to make is between a flat griddle and a grooved griddle. If you choose the latter, you’ll need special grooved cleaning equipment, and you may need to use more oils when cooking to prevent foods from sticking to the surface.
You’ll also need to make the decision between whether you want to buy a commercial gas griddle or a commercial electric griddle. Generally speaking, a gas griddle will be a more economical choice than an electric griddle. Commercial operations where input cost is a major consideration will benefit from choosing gas, but electric griddles may offer some advantages for those who don’t need to be as concerned about cost.
The next very important factor in your choice is the matter of size. Obviously a larger surface area allows you to cook more items at once, more easily manage your workflow, and more easily segregate different food types as you’re cooking. In an environment where strict segregation is highly desirable (eg. you are cooking foods which are completely incompatible with each other), it may actually be better to purchase multiple smaller griddles instead of one large one.

Another advantage of using multiple griddles is that you can more accurately operate at different temperatures (for example, when you use a high heat for initial searing and then switch to a lower heat for the remainder of the cooking process) rather than relying on “cool spots” on a single griddle plate, or manually adjusting the temperature for different phases of cooking.
Making manual adjustments isn’t very precise, but also it slows you down because you cannot introduce new foods onto the griddle that require a high initial temperature while you’re cooking at a lower temperature.
