1-year warranty
  • Item Number: 351GTUCPG36L
  • Product description

    This Cooking Performance Group GTU-CPG-36-L 36" heavy-duty liquid propane 3-burner countertop griddle features energy saving thermostats that are adjustable from 200 to 575 degrees Fahrenheit. With precise temperature controls, it is an excellent choice for delicate breakfast foods like eggs and hotcakes, as well as your lunch menu of chicken, hamburgers, and other meats!

    This Cooking Performance Group countertop griddle is made of stainless steel with a chrome plated griddle/cooktop that is both durable and extremely easy to clean, includes back and side splashes to protect your walls and countertops, and even has a full width waste tray to provide you with a complete package of excellent performance and worry-free maintenance! The chrome plated cooktop has an attractive bright and shiny appearance, making it ideal for front-of-house use. The chrome finish will also reduce flavor transfer and has better heat retention than standard steel plate griddles.

    The chrome acts as an insulator and reduces the emission of radiant heat. It emits significantly less radiant heat than comparable non-chrome griddle plates. This decreases overall cooking times at lower temperatures and reduces added ambient heat to the kitchen. Unlike steel griddles, the chrome plate griddle does not absorb food particles. This greatly reduces flavor transfer, so ingredients with potent flavors such as onions and garlic will not carry-over into subsequent meals.

    Cleaning the griddle is a cinch. Just simply scrape and scrub the griddle with a cleansing solution or water and then wipe off and polish the surface. On average, chrome griddles take 45% less time to clean than standard steel plate griddles. It boasts three powerful 30,000 BTU stainless steel U-shaped burners with standing pilots for instant ignition that work in perfect harmony with the thermostats to maintain your selected griddle temperature during peak cooking periods. Its flame failure protection system guarantees safety and peace of mind. The 3/4" thick, 36" wide chrome plated cooking surface features an impressive 20" depth that is sure to deliver all of the workspace needed. It has a rear gas connection and ships ready to connect to a liquid propane tank.

    To ensure long-lasting service life and optimal performance, use only non-metallic utensils to prevent damage to the cooktop.

Some of our FAQs

Many gas equipment manufacturers need to make adjustments to the equipment so it operates correctly at elevations over 2,000 feet. Sometimes we can special order from the manufacturer and have your cooking equipment delivered ready-to-go, but in cases where your unit is in stock and waiting to ship, you’ll need to have a qualified service technician come to your location and alter your unit at the time of installation so that it is compatible with a higher elevation. Contact our Special Orders team prior to placing your order, and we will let you know what will work best for the equipment you are planning to purchase.
