The Evo Professional Commercial Tabletop is the perfect solution for demanding and delicate food preparation, and for applications where fast temperature recovery is needed.

Edge-to-edge even surface temperatures range from 225ºF to 700ºF (121ºC to 371ºC) from the centre to the outside edge, without the hot spots and temperature problems that traditional square griddles are prone to. The burner system has a push button electronic ignition system which ignites both burners simultaneously.

Evo’s technology allows independent heat adjustment across inner and outer cook surface zones for managing a wide range of menu possibilities. Heat is delivered to each burner via separate inner and outer control knobs.

A stainless steel drip pan completely surrounds the underside of the cook surface catching all food debris, and a separate spill-over tray is mounted to one side of the drip pan for containing and holding pan debris. Operating on Propane LP Gas or Natural Gas, the Professional Commercial Tabletop is an ideal solution for any outdoor display cooking application.

The benefits of flat top grills

Simultaneous Use

The Evo’s versatility also involves controllable dual cooking zones to accommodate multiple foods cooked to order, simultaneously. Bacon, eggs, muffins, hash browns, steaks, asparagus, Texas toast – you name it. The Evo can do them all together!

This is because the Evo cook tops have a large surface area and independent heat zones which allow operators to multi-task. One chef can be preparing an individual meal to order, while another can be prepping ingredients for an upcoming order.

Extensive Cooking Versatility with Single Appliance

The Evo live-action cooking stations provide unmatched culinary versatility, with full direct (sear, sauté, grill, etc) and indirect (roast, boil, steam, etc.) cooking techniques at your command. There’s no need to waste valuable capital on single-purpose cooking appliances such as tortilla warmers, woks, crepe makers, etc.

Beyond sustaining constant and consistent heat, Evo cooking stations offer superior heat control to accommodate the most delicate to the most demanding food items, with temperature variations between 175 and 670 degrees F. Whatever your guests desire, the Evo can handle it.

Stimulating the Senses

Live-action display cooking of freshly prepared food allows the diner to experience the full range of sensory delights, unlike any other application! All five of the traditional senses come into play: the sights of a colourful array of ingredients, the aromas of various spices, the sounds of morsels chattering on the cooker top, the touch of new textures, and the tastes of delicious foods prepared by the chef.

Other sensory perceptions come into play as well when using the Evo Grills. “Thermoception” comes alive as the diner savours the rarity of food being served hot, and staying that way for longer. These experiences will alter the sense of time, elongating the event as one’s mind records every memorable moment. Their heart smiles. Their brain applauds. Take a bow Evo chef!

Lower Operating Costs

The unique concept of Evo cooking equipment provides greater utility with less supporting supplies. There’s no need for special induction pans, simply use the pots you have. No “additional attachments” required. And you don’t need steam table pans, warming lamps, chafing dishes and fuel canisters, etc when serving right to the plate from an Evo.

Energy costs can also be a major portion of operating expense. Evo appliances are very energy-efficient by design, effectively capturing the heat within the cooking surface.

Covet the Clean-up Crew

Evo clean-up is fast, easy and thorough. You’ll be done and ready to go home while the rest are still stacking chairs! The folding up and transporting of the portable Evo models can even be handled by one person.

Also, the Evo flat top cleans best when warm, so the chef can begin scraping the cooking surface before the last portion is even served. You can then carefully wipe down the stainless steel surfaces while the cook top cools down, and the clean-up can be done without the need for running water.

Easy set up

Live-action cooking can be set up easily, and in a number of different venues. Evo portable cooking stations are easily transported, whether you need to push the travel case across the pool deck, move the presentation cart across the banqueting room, or carry the tabletop down to the beach. Don’t have a helper? No worries – you can handle an Evo all by yourself.

And getting started is easy too! All units arrive ready to connect to their power source, so whether you need to hook it up to a propane tank, a natural gas line, or plug the Evo into an electric outlet, you can start cooking quickly, and easily.

Quick Start Up

Evo’s state-of-the-art equipment provides fast service for dinner guests. You can turn on an Evo and reach your ideal cooking temperature in just a few minutes. And because the Evo is so easy to clean, it’s unlikely that the user before will have left you with a mess to deal with. You’re oiled and ready to go!

These short preparation times mean that less man-hours are needed, and consequently, quicker and better results can be achieved. Plus, Evo’s ability to heat up quickly allows for quicker response times when it comes to special, last minute requests!

Utilize All Day Long!

A great benefit of the Evo cooking appliances is that you can deploy them all day long. They perform superbly for any meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner, and anything in between.

Evo’s extended utilization means lower allocated costs per meal item and/or service period. That raises margins and opens up more sales opportunities. Evo’s productivity is a lot easier to justify than a rotisserie, for example, which costs four times as much for roasting chickens for a 4-7pm customer window, and which then sell at the same price as the uncooked product in the meat case.
