This heavy duty, commercial grade 5-burner gas grill is made with 18 gauge 304 stainless steel. It is meant for small catering applications, but would certainly be an asset for any backyard BBQ. Two large wheels and two locking casters allow a single cook to move the cooker over a variety of surfaces. The lid and shelves may be removed to compact the unit as space requires.
Plenty of accessories are available for all types of cooking from steamers to griddles to fryers. Offered in LP or natural gas models.
Crown Verity makes professional, heavy duty no frills, frumpy, but serious 304 stainless steel grills aimed at commercial users. These cookers are industrial strength, even industrial supply giant Grainger carries Crown Verity equipment.
CV makes a wide variety of cookers from drop in and freestanding residential models to gigantic professional trailer mounted systems with built in sinks, burners and ice chests. They claim their cookers preheat in six to seven minutes. Pros love the fact that they can power wash their catering cookers when the job is finished. In addition to grills CV makes griddles, portable sinks, steamers, fryers and a limited selection of add-ons, like doors, shelves and rotisseries, for their built in and portable cookers.
The Verity family began making plows and agricultural equipment in the 1890s, switched to commercial restaurant products in the 1950s, then branched out into grills and portable food service in the 1990s. Available online and at dealerships across the USA.
