The Vollrath 924GGT is a 24" heavy-duty flat top gas griddle with thermostatic controls. The 924GGT has one u-shaped 30,000 BTU burner for every 12" of griddle plate. The cooking surface is a durable 1" thick welded steel grill plate. The thicker the steel, the better the heat retention and distribution. With the thermostat, the chef can keep the cooking surface on the 924GGT griddle at precise temperatures all day. This unit is designed with mechanical safety pilot; it withstands the rigors of commercial use, but also ensures the gas will automatically shut off if the pilot goes out. No electrical set-up is needed. The Vollrath 924GGT ships configured for natural gas, but comes with a field installed conversion kit to LP gas. This griddle is ideal for any high use facility that needs a heavy duty grill.
