It has been proven time and time again that if the Hard Chrome surface is cleaned properly after cooking, there will be little to no taste transfer, so you may cook fried onions in the afternoon and pancakes the following morning.
The kitchen room temperature will run cooler with the Polished Hard Chrome top. The encapsulated steel plate holds the heat closer to the cooking surface thus reducing the heat loss.
Faster cooking times have been noticed compared to raw steel griddle tops.
If you have customers previewing the cooking process, wouldn’t you rather them see it cooked on a Hard Chrome plated griddle?
