In this video we’re going to demonstrate
operation of the Vulcan 900 RX and MSA gas griddles. 900 RX griddles come
standard with a dual ignition system — electric and manual. MSA griddles are
built standard with only a manual ignition system. For electric pilot
lighting, push and hold the power switch in the on position. While continuing to
hold the power switch in the on position, depress and hold the red button on the
pilot safety valve. Verify the pilot has been ignited. After it has been burning
for 45 seconds, release the red button. For manual pilot lighting, to press and
hold the red button — reach under the front of the unit to light the
corresponding pilot with an outside ignition source. Verify the pilot has
been ignited. After it has been burning for 45 seconds, release the red button. Preheat the griddle for 20 to 25 minutes
before cooking. We recommend seasoning the cooking
surface with a light coat of oil before first use and after every cleaning to
reduce cooked product from sticking. Each 12-inch section has a separate snap
action thermostat for accurate temperature control, allowing you to cook
a variety of products simultaneously. Throughout service, clean the griddle
cooking surface regularly with a griddle scraper. At the end of service, allow
griddle to cool down to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Apply room-temperature water
and clean with a griddle scraper to remove debris. Empty the grease drawer as
needed throughout service and at a minimum — empty at the end of service.
Thoroughly clean the griddle backsplash sides and front. To shut off the griddle,
turn thermostats to the off position. For more information on operating your 900RX or MSA griddles, refer to the operations manual on the Vulcan website.
