Heat is the name of the game.

A good salamander broiler is like the Swiss Army knife of kitchen equipment. Whether it’s crisping gratins, melting cheese on a burger, or toasting sweet creme brulee, an over-fired broiler like the Vulcan 36IRB works well for turning out a wide variety of dishes.

With the 36IRB, heat is the name of the game. Its infrared technology provides ample cooking power and is particularly suited for over-fired broiling. With two 15,000 BTU/hr burners, this “sally” broiler has fast startup times and keeps the heat cranked even in your busiest hours. That doesn’t mean it’s a brute, though; each burner has a temperature adjustment knob, so you’re in control at all times. Unleash the 36IRB at full throttle or take it for a pleasant spin at low heat.

While it’s designed to be mounted above your Vulcan range, the 36IRB can also be used on the countertop or mounted to the wall. This makes it a flexible tool that can also be used in place of other cooking equipment if you’re in a pinch.

Life in a kitchen is varied; the task at hand changes by the minute. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a good salamander broiler like Vulcan’s 36IRB nearby. Like a Swiss Army knife, it’s versatile, dependable, and can help you out in almost any situation.
