How do you use a griddle plate?
It is important to make sure that the grill plate is fully heated before placing any food on it. You can do this by setting the desired temperature and waiting for the plate to heat up before starting to grill your food. Add a small amount of oil to the plate and then add your meat, vegetables or sandwich to the plate. If you would like to have visible grill lines on your food, it is important to not turn the food too quickly. Instead, turn it only once when it is cooked about halfway through. Remember to wipe the grill plate with oil every now and again before adding new food to the plate.
What are the benefits of using a griddle plate?
A grill plate can add a lot of flavour to any dish and they heat up to a very high temperature to prepare foods like meat and vegetables in no time at all. The high temperature also has the benefit of enriching the food's flavour to elevate your dishes to a higher level. The large surface area of the grill is also an important feature that allows you to cook multiple ingredients directly next to each other. Since the plate is heated evenly, food is cooked evenly irrespective of where the ingredients are placed on the plate. Last but not least, since Maxima griddle plates do not use any open flames, they are also a safe choice.
What should you look out for when purchasing a griddle plate?
One of the most important considerations when choosing a grill plate is size. In order to allow you to opt for a size that works for your kitchen, griddle plates come in both single and double plate models. Double plate models are the ideal choice for kitchens where a large amount of food is prepared in short times, whereas a single plate model is well-suited to kitchens which use the grill plate only occasionally. It is also worthwhile to consider investing in a chrome coating which can reduce heat loss so that the grill plate is more efficient for operation. A good griddle plate can reach a temperature of 300 degrees Celcius, but it should also be able to maintain a temperature of 50 to 70 degrees Celcius for lower temperature cooking.
What different types of griddle plates are there?
The biggest difference between griddle plates are the grill surfaces that they use. The griddle plate surface can be either smooth or grooved; a smooth plate ensures even cooking while a grooved grill plate is responsible for creating the well-known grill stripes. Grill plates can also be either electrical or gas operated. Electrical models heat up very quickly but cool down just as fast, which makes them easier to clean than gas versions. Gas grill plates, however, offer more precise temperature regulation and are generally a bit cheaper to use than electrical versions.
How do you clean a griddle plate?
Regular cleaning is important if you want to maintain your grill plate in good condition. Cleaning the appliance after each use is recommended and it is also important to allow the cooking appliance to cool down completely before cleaning it. The best way to clean a grill plate is by using a damp cloth, warm water and mild detergent which will not damage the heating element or the griddle plate coating. Using a damp cloth and a small amount of oil is a great way to remove caked debris from the plate. Last but not least, remember to empty the drip tray after use.
