Salamander

A baker’s dream, salamander grills and salamander ovens help reheat, melt or brown food, especially breads, pastries, bagels, toast, cheese, cakes and muffins.

We stock powerful electric, LPG and gas salamander ovens for choice and each one is built solid with a strong stainless-steel structure for longevity and durability.

Salamander ovens are bulky and heavy-duty made, meaning you’ll need to be selective when it comes to choosing the right position to place your unit within your commercial kitchen or workspace.

Salamander ovens can act as alternate toasters and utilise high temperatures, heat levels and fast cooking methods to deliver the tastiest heated snacks, breads and meals.

Ideal for your local bakery or café, who normally work in a very fast-paced process, salamander units work wonders and are a unique and special equipment to look out for in our cooking equipment variety.
