Question
Can professional counter-top cooking equipment do the same job as some of the larger types of equipment e.g. fryers, griddles, grills, ovens etc. Secondly can the electric versions compete with the gas versions?

Answer
Dear Quinn,


All equipment decisions should be based on "Volume and "Rwecovery Time"

The important measurement is "BTUS" produced by a piece of equipment and weather that measurement can keep pace with the amount of product you intend to put through it in a specifeid period of time.
