The difference between Restaurant Salamanders and Restaurant Cheese Melters
Restaurant Cheese Melters are designed to only melt cheese and are not rated or designed to cook foods, these units are only to be used to finish dishes before they are ready to be served to the customer. The Restaurant Salamander not only finishes but can also cook food as well because the BTU’s are much higher than that of a restaurant cheese melter. The salamander broiler is considered more of a multi-purpose broiler than a cheese melter.
