Steam Shell Technology by the American Griddle Company reduces the wasteful spending associated with under/over cooked food and employee training. With benefits and cost reductions not seen in conventional electric griddles, the American Griddle Company’s Steam Griddle eventually pays for its self. American Griddle’s patented Steam Shell technology brings solutions to your kitchen never before possible.

Consistent Results:

The Steam Shell Griddle uses circulating steam to heat the griddle surface. With a consistent and steady source of heat, this means no more hot and cold spots! Food products are able to be cooked under uniform temperatures, creating a better tasting and more consistent experience.  The constant, even heat also means no more spikes or extreme drops in temperature.

Employee Training:

The ease of use the Steam Shell Griddle presents minimizes the need for employee training and retraining. Because the Steam Shell Griddle uses steam to heat the griddle surface, there are no hot or cold spots.  Additionally, the extremely even surface temperature prevents variations with cook times, which is very forgiving to inexperienced cooks. The temperature controller on the Steam Shell Griddle is also easy to use and requires little training, simply set the temperature.

Steam Shell Lid:

American Griddle’s patented Steam Shell Lid cooks any product from the top and bottom at the same time. This helps to retain product moisture and reduces most cook times by up to 50%. Under the Steam Shell Lid, food is cooked evenly throughout the product, locking in the natural juices and flavors.

Faster Cook Times:

Thanks to the steam heated griddle surface and American Griddle’s patented Steam Shell lid, cook times are reduced by as much as 50% on some products. Meats and vegetables are evenly cooked in up to half the time with the steam heated surface rather than an electrically heated surface. With this advanced technology, the entire surface of the Steam Shell Griddle is the exact same temperature, allowing you to utilize the complete cooking area.  With more food cooking simultaneously, this saves you both time and money.

Natural Flavors:

By employing the Steam Shell Lid, foods are cooked from the top and bottom concurrently and with an even temperature. This retains all of the natural moisture and flavors that makes your food taste great. Utilizing steam in the cooking process also makes drying and overcooking practically impossible.
