The CGM24 from Carter-Hoffmann is an electric cheesemelter that works to put the finishing touches on cheese-topped meals. With its Infrared quartz heater, heat is generated almost instantly. The CGM24 turns on a green light when the power is on, and a red light when food is placed in the finishing tray. This cheesemelter is great for nacho plates, French onion soup, and for quickly melting cheese atop sandwiches. It can also be used to keep food warm if needed in a pinch. The CHM24 also features a field-removable rear panel so the unit can be used in pass-thru operations if desired, making it easier for servers to grab food and quickly deliver to tables while still warm.
