Broilers: A must have kitchen equipment
A broiler is a part of an oven that functions similar to a grill, the major difference being that broilers apply heat on food from above, while grills apply heat from below. There are also wall-mountable versions of broilers.
Broilers are a very great equipment to have in the kitchen especially for pizzerias, bakeries, sandwich shops or even at home if you really enjoy cooking and baking at home.
Broilers effectively give dishes a perfect browning on the surface, from bread to pizza, it makes cheese toppings on any dish melty, stretchy and absolutely appealing, Broilers also give steak, chicken, and any other form of meat a texture that can only be described as wonderful, combining crispiness with fattiness in a perfect ratio.
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Place the broiler pan, upside down, on a baking sheet and roast it for 15 minutes.
3. Use a nonstick cooking spray or oven cleaner to remove any burnt-on food or grease from the broiler pan.
4. Clean the inside of the broiler pan with soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
5. Clean the outside of the broiler pan with some soapy water and a sponge.
A broiler pan is a long, flat pan that is used to cook food under the heat of an oven. If your recipe calls for broiling, then you will need to use a broiler pan.
Broiler pans usually come in two different types: open and closed. The open type has holes in it for circulation while the closed type does not have any holes at all. You can use either type of pan for broiling, but it is recommended that you use the closed type if you are cooking something with liquid in it like soup or stew so that the liquid doesn't evaporate too quickly and cause your food to burn.
