This is Garland’s G Series® 36-inch Range.
It won the Kitchen Innovations Award in 2008. Some of the special features: heavy duty grates,
casts, special cover here for protecting your pilot. Here’s the pilot here. Put it down;
protect the pilot, so you’re not going to get any overflow of putting on your pilots.
New two-piece burner with the latest technology which really gives high-efficiency, very smooth
coverage of flame. Chefs complain that, you know, when they’ve got an overflow of a
pot, clogs up all the burner. If they have to constantly try to get this burner out of
here, it’s not easy to get out. So all they gotta do is take this out, throw it in the
dishwasher, clean it off, or brush it off, and put it back in. So it makes cleaning a
lot easier. Basically, what they’ve done here is, you know, most burners, I don’t
have one to compare, but there’s just a couple of holes where the gas flies through
the opening behind here. The way they developed this, they delivered a ramping system, so
it comes up slowly, they also have some holes here so that the whole flow of gas underneath
here, which gives you a really even flow of gas, through the burner; increases your efficiency.
And of course with the patented star, you also get the best distribution underneath
the pot. You’re not flowing up the side of the pot; you’re coming up underneath
the pot. And the other part of the design is this bowl here. This is all part of the
design to get a high-efficiency burner. When you look at some ranges, it’s basically
a flat grate at top, so all you’re heat’s going down to the bottom. We want to get the
heat going to the pot. One of the other features on this is extra depths. The old range is
24 inches. This one goes back to 27; 27 inches. Which gives you extra room for bigger pots.
And also the flush fitting on the rail. So you put up a pot on the rail and slide it
in. You know, there are other ranges in the business, the grate’s up here, so you put
a pot on here, it’s gonna go over. Another little feature, this little piece here, which
looks pretty insignificant. But what it is actually, heat control tab. What I mean by
that is, if that tab is not there, the grate’s right up against there. The grate’s conducting
heat, right, so a lot of heat can go into the grate and it’s going to have a pot sitting
here for an hour. So what’s going to happen is the heat transfers into the rail. With
these heat tabs, it just keeps it just much further away and it reduces your rail temperature
by, I don’t know, 50 degrees, whatever. Which again, is a big feature.
