Abstract:

A commercial electric, horizontal conveyor-type broiler was evaluated to determine its acceptability for use in military food service operations. Evaluation consisted of broiling hamburgers, cheeseburgers, frankfurters, and buns, stressing food production, and an examination of the sanitary and safety aspects of the equipment. The broiler is not considered acceptable for garrison food service feeding, where hamburger patties are served without buns, because of the generally unacceptable appearance of the patties. The broiler is more practical in specialty houses and snack bars, wherever the quantity of short order meals requires a large amount of hamburgers on buns. The equipment is safe to use. The major drawback in the use of this equipment is the difficulty in cleaning.
