What Is a Commercial Charbroiler?

A commercial charbroiler is an appliance that is frequently used by restaurants that serve grilled food to customers and patrons. Diners and fast food restaurants are the usual food establishments that utilize a commercial char broiler in their kitchens.  A commercial charbroil unit is ideal for grilling chicken, hamburgers, fish, steaks, kebabs, and the like.

There are various kinds of restaurant broilers, depending on what is required of them. For example, a restaurant broiler can generally be found in restaurant kitchens, while a mobile commercial charbroiler is usually utilized in small kiosks serving food on the street or outside sports stadiums and even in outdoor picnics, in the beach, or in the backyard for a quick barbecue.

The Difference Between a Radiant Charbroiler and a Lava Rock Charbroiler

What is the difference between a radiant broiler and a lava rock charbroiler? The main difference is in the heat transfer to the food.  On a radiant charbroiler, the burner is found under a cast metal radiant from which the heat is radiated toward the food being grilled.  The radiant is usually pitched like a roof that allows excess juice to run off and not carbonize. However, some of the juice or drippings from the meat is actually burned, which gives off that distinctly grilled aroma of food. 

A lava rock charbroiler, on the other hand, uses a bed of lava rock placed above the burners in order to to catch and radiate the heat toward the food that is being grilled above.  The porous lava rock catches and holds the drippings which, when heated, gives off the aroma associated with grilled meat. Both a lava rock charbroiler and a radiant broiler are equally effective especially when used by an experienced cook.
