Buy ENERGY STAR® to save you money!
An ENERGY STAR certified commercial griddle uses at least 10% less energy, on average, than a standard model. This equates to savings of over $120 per year, or over $1,100 over the product lifetime. Saving energy saves money and reduces your carbon footprint.
- Even cooking - improved uniformity of temperature across the griddle plate increases the quality of your food.
- Higher production capacity, allowing you to cook more with less energy.
Start your research using the ENERGY STAR Product Finder tool to find and compare certified commercial griddles. The ENERGY STAR symbol can be found on gas and electric, single and double-sided models that are thermostatically controlled. (NOTE: you will be redirected to the US ENERGY STAR website.)
- Purchase a griddle that is the correct size to match typical food loads for your operations.
- Turn off the griddle when it is not in use (most griddles take less than 15 minutes to preheat. Similarly, if the griddle has multiple sections, unused sections should be turned off.
- Double-sided griddles should be closed when not in use to retain heat.
- Steam griddles tend to have faster recovery times and lower idle energy rates.
- Griddles with chrome finishes tend to retain heat better than those with other finishes.
- Solid state or electronic controls also tend to have faster recovery times.
