Before we review the Top 5 reasons to add a salamander broiler – let’s just review what exactly a Salamander is.  The Salamander Broiler is a standalone appliance that can be located on a countertop or above a range that uses powerful infrared ceramic broilers for everything broiling perfect steaks to melting cheese on casseroles.  Due to its higher heat capabilities vs. broilers located inside ovens, the Salamander’s performance far exceeds that of even pro-style ovens.  Salamanders are also extremely convenient in a restaurant environment since they allow broiling or finishing to be done without taking up valuable oven space.

So here’s why you need a new and improved Salamander Broiler in your kitchen:

1)  Create Restaurant Quality Results in Your Own Kitchen

Today’s foodie is looking to create the restaurant experience without ever having to leave their home.  The Salamander’s 11,000 BTU infrared broilers deliver ideal, easy-to-adjust heat, from gentle broiling to 1850°F of intense searing heat across 215 square inches of cooking space.  The four-position grilling rack and adjustable burners allow you to cook with a heat that is perfect for the dish you’re preparing.  From “Pittsburgh rare” steaks, to crispy chicken, to delicately broiled crab cakes you will get perfect results in virtually half the time.

2)  Unmatched Customization Options

Even though the Salamander is small in size when compared to a gas range, it still offers you the ability to customize it to your kitchen design.  Its brushed stainless steel knobs give it a strong restaurant kitchen feel, but you can choose to add a touch of color with over 750+ color choices.  Brilliantly match the color to your BlueStar gas range below or any other color used throughout your kitchen.  There are even ten luxury trim finishes that can be added to the unit.

Recent improvements to the design of the Salamander have made it easier to install and use.  First, the wall mount has been completely redesigned so that it’s easier to hang on the wall, run your gas lines and install the Salamander unit.  Next we made all of the controls on the unit, especially the adjustable grilling rack, easy to use no matter your level of cooking expertise.  These changes, along with making the unit sturdier than it already was, created a cooking appliance that will be enjoyable to use for many years.
