How Low-Touch Automatic Broiling Can Boost Profits and Simplify Labor Needs

A busy restaurant or food business requires reliable equipment that works as hard and as smart as you do. Adding a low-touch automatic broiler to your kitchen allows you to optimize your kitchen processes for safety and efficiency.

What Is Low-Touch Automatic Broiling?

A busy restaurant or food business requires reliable equipment that works as hard and as smart as you do. Adding a low-touch automatic broiler to your kitchen allows you to optimize your kitchen processes for safety and efficiency.

You might be wondering, just what is an automatic broiler? An automatic broiler has a conveyorized belt which moves food products through the broiler at a specified speed, allowing it to cook fully in the time it takes to pass through the chamber.

What can you cook in a Nieco Automatic Broiler? It may surprise you! Nieco broilers perfectly cook fast casual and gourmet-style burgers, hot dogs, chicken, fish, shrimp, pork, steak, lamb, kabobs, ribs, vegetables, fruits and more.

Labor and Operational Savings

A consistent challenge in the restaurant industry is the availability of skilled labor. While many factors are involved in the foodservice labor shortage, the smart application of cooking automation can help your operation simplify labor needs.

Free your valuable staff for other tasks without compromising quality. Set the machine properly, then place the product on the belt, and the broiler does most of the work. Programmable recipe settings and touch screen controls ensure your products are consistently cooked and your customers are satisfied. Rapid, consistent, automated cooking is money saved for your business.


Quick Cooking Speed

Nieco’s patented BroilVection® technology simultaneously flame-broils top and bottom, cutting cook times by up to 50%. By harnessing the broiler’s heat and using a combination of radiant cooking, convection, and forced air convection, you’ll achieve juicy, seared flavorful food every time. Your kitchen also stays cooler.

With up to 50% reduced energy consumption and 90% fewer emissions with Incendalyst® technology, Nieco’s automated belts and programmable controls produce consistently-cooked product with juicy, flame-broiled flavor, reducing waste and increasing speed of service. Improve both profitability and customer satisfaction with rapid, consistent, predictable cook times.
