Topnotch Stainless Steel Hot Plate 317x485mm - PSS317x485
Stainless Steel Hot Plate:
Topnotch barbeque plates are manufactured from a special grade of heat transferring stainless steel. It is the composition of the material which gives the Topnotch Stainless Steel Hot Plates the special ability to transfer and retain heat as well as being corrosion resistant. Topnotch Barbeque Plates are paint & chemical free, and extremely durable.
Past problems associated with the use of Stainless Steel, like poor heat transfer and food sticking have been overcome through intense research and development of the material used to produce the Topnotch range of Products.
Are you aware that Cast Iron has its limitations? Cast Iron can easily rust once the protective paint has burned off and can then react with salts and marinades.
One of the major problems with Cast Iron is that it is produced from recycled metal which causes the Cast Iron to be porous. The chemicals used in cleaning, combined with any rust present, seep into the sponge-like metal and these potentially harmful properties can be released into the food, which we in turn digest.
Unlike Cast Iron surfaces the Topnotch Stainless Steel surface is non-porous, so remnants of past food and oil can not become trapped within the surface. This is particularly important in Australias climate as bacteria can easily multiply if the surface is just warmed and not heated to 64 degrees centigrade and above.
Also, food cooked on your Topnotch Stainless Steel Hotplate will not take on the flavours of anything else youve previously cooked on the BBQ.
No curing is required, just wipe with a clean cloth, then preheat for approx. 10 mins. Plate temperature should be between (1600c to 1750c for canola oil) or (1500c to 1600c for olive oil) and then you are ready to cook. (Ensure the oil used, has a burn point above 1600c.)
