All Velox High Speed Contact Grills can cook a wide variety of products, steaks, omelettes, panini etc. Please see our COOKING TIMES page for a more comprehensive list
Velox clam shell grills take approximately 10 minutes to reach cooking temperature from cold. The specially designed heating elements and cast aluminium cooking plates give extremely efficient heat distribution to ensure EVEN and SAFE COOKING. Thermostatic controls minimize energy consumption - the running costs are approximately 15 cents (10 pence) per hour for model CG1 and 30 cents (20 pence) per hour for model CG-2.
Short cooking times, intense heat and direct contact from upper and lower cooking plates create a searing effect that locks in the natural juices, improving both taste and quality. Due to this cooking concept, meat shrinkage is greatly reduced and high nutritional value is retained.
Performs equally well with fresh or frozen foods. Rare, medium or well done products can be cooked simultaneously. Allows the operator to COOK TO ORDER a wide variety of foods without sacrificing the quality.
The Clam Shell Grill plate edges prevent excessive spillage. The adjustable feet while keeping the contact grill level, will allow excess grease to drain into a separate, easily removable grease tray with a high splash guard. As an added safety feature, the drainer is situated at the back of the grill to enable hot grease to be pushed away from the operator rather than being pulled towards. The cooking surfaces can be cleaned with a cloth or metal scraper when necessary and are fitted with easily accessible side hinges for ease of cleaning.
The special hinges on Velox high speed contact grills allow lateral and vertical movement of the lightweight upper grill plates, thereby allowing them to self-adjust to the product being cooked without the aid of springs or any mechanical device. The Velox grill can accommodate products up to 9cm (3½") thick. The cooking surface is separated from the chassis allowing free air flow in order to keep the chassis cool. This in turn protects the easy set digital timer, thermostat and electrical components from the heat. Velox Grills are manufactured for heavy duty restaurant work.
