They are very easy to use, firstly begin with heating up the griddle until the plate becomes very hot then apply a thin layer of oil to the surface when the oil has heated up sufficiently add your burgers, sausages or other food items on to the griddle (it’s up to you if you want to use the oil all the time).

This way the food will cook quicker and cleaner, without the oil some of the food will stick to the griddle.It is said that you should add the oil to the food (glaze the food not the griddle) but for me this was in practical, imagine adding oil to every piece of food before you start cooking.

How to Maintain and Clean a LPG Griddle

Each time you finish cooking for your customers make sure to clean the griddle by scraping away excess food and oil left over. At the end of each day wipe down and clean the griddle plate (top part) using some soapy water and a sponge. This piece of equipment is used endlessly and so needs the most cleaning and looking after.

What Size of LPG/Gas Griddle

These griddles come in a variety of sizes from 1-2-3-4 burners, now when I started out I unfortunately had the smallest griddle in the world, well it seemed like it to me.

It was a one burner griddle that came with my catering van but I managed fine with it including cooking for local football matches and summer fetes. If you have anything bigger than a 1 burner griddle then you are off to a better start than me, if you are at the point where you have a choice then opt for the bigger griddle to make life a little easier for yourself.
