Cadco’s Clamshell Grill

March 19, 2019 | No Comments »


Considered the “Fast Grill System,” the Cadco Clamshell Grill (CPG-10FC) uses both cooking by contact to create an even, uniform cook on the surface of food and infrared rays to penetrate to food to its heart. The Cadco Clamshell Grill makes beautiful looking-food that your customers will surely enjoy!

Even frozen food products don’t stand a chance as the glass cooking surface is designed to resist thermic shocks, cooking frozen food evenly at a maximum temperature without damaging the surface of the grill.

Cooking food with a maximum height of 2 ¾” evenly grills thicker sandwiches or other foods. Cleanup is quick and easy too as the surface resists carbon residue buildup, and is smooth and non-porous.

Choosing the Right Globe Mixer

March 4, 2019 | No Comments »

A good mixer provides an equal mix of ingredients without over mixing the product. Choosing the right Globe mixer for the correct product is important, and can mean the difference between an overworked/underworked mix and the perfect consistency.

Spiral Mixer

If you plan on making just dough, then you want to use a Globe Spiral Mixer. They feature a permanent dough hook that gently turns in place. Below it, the bowl spins, continuously returning product to the turning hook. They also do not whip or beat, but instead gently knead the dough without too much friction or a rise in dough temperatures. This allows the gluten structures in the dough to form. They take up more kitchen counter space, but are shorter than a Planetary Mixer.

Planetary Mixer

If you want to make dough, and other mixes, you should choose the more versatile Planetary Mixer. These mixers feature interchangeable agitators that can do everything; mix, whip, knead, and beat. Another great feature of a Globe Planetary Mixer is the attachments that can be used to slice, shred, grate, shred or grind. So when you need to do a variety of different jobs, the Planetary Mixer is the one to choose. They take up less of kitchen counter space, but are taller than Spiral Mixers.

Maintaining Ice Cleanliness with Manitowoc Ice

February 27, 2019 | No Comments »

As with anything in your restaurant kitchen, it is important to keep all appliances clean, and working properly. As for ice machines, they should be regularly cleaned every 6 months, and in some cases, more frequently than that.

This ensures keeping food safe, and your machine working at its peak performance the way it was intended. If this cleaning schedule is followed, it will prolong the life of the machine as well.

Luckily for us, Manitowoc Ice constructed an ice maker that is very easy to clean, without the need of any tools. Not only did Manitowoc Ice make it easy to clean, they even offer options that slow the growth of bacteria that can prolong the time needed in between cleanings. They also added an additional indicator light option for extra security.
