STAR MFG. ULTRA-MAX
Ultra-Max griddles feature a hard chrome surface to provide superior cooking performance and even heat distribution across the 1-in.-thick plate. A highly polished smooth surface reflects heat inward, reducing radiant heat; lowers energy cost up to 30%; and keeps the kitchen cooler. A non-porous chrome surface eliminates food taste transfer and can be cleaned quickly, reducing labor cost. The units feature a heavy-duty all-weld body construction with stainless front, side panels and splash guard. The units are available in widths from 24-72 in.W with a 24-in.D cooking surface capped in a cool-to-the-touch stainless bullnose front. Gas models feature new 40,000 Btu/hr. every 12 in. from tubular “U” shaped steel burners. A stainless grease drawer holds 6 qt.
