Propane cooking equipment provides convenience, sharp design, and excellent performance in any home or commercial kitchen.
From precise heat control to smaller energy bills, propane cooking equipment is the perfect ingredient for homeowners who dream of a professional-caliber kitchen. An attractive, stainless-steel gas range that combines a propane cooktop and oven is perfect for space-challenged homeowners, while propane also offers commercial-grade ranges, indoor grills and cooktops, in-wall double ovens, and other gas cooking applications in luxurious custom kitchens. In all cases, propane gives the homeowner ample cooking performance and precise temperature control in a wide variety of product designs.
High-performance gas ranges, cooktops, and ovens are preferred by a majority of professional chefs and designers, for their own use as well as for their clients'. Why? Propane ranges, cooktops, and ovens allow for greater control of heat levels. Instant-on burners allow cooking to start right away. Propane burners are also instant-off. This capability provides a safety feature not found in electric cooktops, which can remain dangerously hot for a few minutes after they've been turned off. A propane burner's instant-off feature also allows the food to start cooling immediately and prevents overcooking.
Beyond these core benefits of propane burners in ranges, cooktops, and even indoor grills, propane kitchen appliances also offer:
- Precise temperature control from searing to simmering.
- Smart controls for different cooking modes.
- Griddle and grill features on ranges and cooktops.
- Warming drawers.
- Ovens with convection and steam settings.
Commercial cooking equipment
Propane cooking equipment is an effective option for newly constructed kitchens, replacing aging and inefficient equipment in existing facilities, and kitchen space fit-out for new owners/tenants. New propane-powered, Energy Star certified equipment is 10 percent to 70 percent more efficient than standard equipment, depending on product type. Replacing older equipment can reduce utility costs while upgrading features, quality, and style of the equipment.
Propane cooking equipment typically lasts eight years or more in most commercial kitchens, which generally outpaces electric counterparts. The larger size of commercial cooking equipment also puts propane ahead of electric units. For example, large capacity fryers, with 40 gallons of oil or more, are almost exclusively gas-heated units. These high capacity units offer significant benefits for efficiency levels, heat recovery time, and production rates.
