As a restaurant owner, I am always looking for new ways to cook and prepare my food. The good news is that modern technology has provided me with more choices than ever before. I have recently been utilising a contact grill and I am extremely pleased with the end results. However, it is still important to take a look at how this type of apparatus is used to cook food as well as what to look for in a professional model. You can then make the most informed decision when the time is right.
Sometimes referred to as a dual-contact griddle, a contact grill is used to evenly heat foods on both sides thanks to a hinged mechanism. After the proper temperature is selected, the grill is activated and a series of electrical heating elements will cause the inside panels to become quite hot. Another benefit is that the addition of a top grill plate helps to prevent the food from losing its moisture during the cooking process (and to retain its flavour). Let’s also not forget that unlike normal grilling, you will no longer be required to flip the food in order for it to cook properly.
I primarily utilise my grill to cook meat and certain types of fish (such as a salmon fillet). However, it is also a popular option when preparing paninis (grilled sandwiches). Omelettes, fried eggs and pancakes can likewise be prepared with this device. As the heat can be adjusted with a thermostat, it is possible to achieve extremely precise temperatures.
Temperature control is essential in order to properly cook different types of foods. A juice tray should also be located on the underside of the unit. This will help fats and other liquids to drain as opposed to remaining within the grill itself. As I work within a restaurant, a grill with an audible alarm that signals when the food has finished cooking is also preferable.
The main benefits of a contact grill are that the food will cook evenly and extremely accurately. The only major issue is that infusing specific meats with smoked flavours is not possible. However, this is a small drawback when compared to the advantages that this device has to offer.
