Be sure to look for the ENERGY STAR when shopping for commercial griddles
Current Specification Effective Date: May 2009
- Covers gas and electric, single and double sided units which must meet normalized idle energy rate
- Griddles that earn the ENERGY STAR must not exceed maximum idle energy rates
- Gas fueled ENERGY STAR certified must not exceed a normalized idle energy rate of 2,650 Btu/h/ft2.
Save energy and cut costs by following these simple tips:
- Look for the ENERGY STAR
- Reduce idle time by turning the griddle off during periods of non-use
- Minimize energy waste by reducing the temperature of sections of the griddle(s) during periods of slow production
- Calibrate the griddle controls to operate at the correct temperature
- Replace missing control knobs
- For double-sided griddles, save energy by lowering the upper platen during extended periods of non-use
