Commercial Cheesemelters are open faced ovens convenient for sliding in food items on trays or plates. Cheesemelters typically do not have drawers or doors like salamanders. Cheesemelters are not just for melting cheese. The convenience of their open front means quick insertion and retrieval of popular menu items that need the right amount of top down heat for finishing. Their heat creates the right effect on your food by caramelizing or browning tops, or melting cheese toppings. A commercial cheesemelter is a typical finishing oven ideal for final toasting of items like cheeseburgers, parmigiana dishes, and grinder sandwiches.
