This requirement contributes to reduced energy losses.
Griddles must be equipped with a lid.
- Product data sheet showing the requirement is met.
Griddles are generally considered as a non-energy efficient solution in the profesisonal kitchen. If the need still is there, lids should be used during heating to reduce energy wastage. For broader griddles (>80cm) there should be at least 2 heating zones.
A professional kitchen is an energy-intensive activity. In a school, for example, it is estimated that the kitchen facilities answer for approx. 13% of the electricity consumption (excluding heating). The equipment used for cooking, refrigeration and dishwashing is energy intensive and remains switch on for many hours a day. It is highly relevant, from a life cycle cost perspective, to demand energy-efficient equipment and good quality products. Professional kitchen equipment is designed for a long life and intensive use - a boiling pan can, for example, last up to 30 years.
