The Vulcan VCCG Series Gas Griddle Takes on the Competition: Comparison Chart

It’s easy to sing the praises of Vulcan’s VCCG Series heavy duty gas griddle. It’s productive, customizable and energy efficient. You might be asking:  How does it stack up against its competitors? Here’s a closer look at what differentiates the VCCG48 from two similar competitive models.

The Energy Savings Imperative

Reducing energy usage is a top priority for many restaurants. While this can be achieved to a degree through best practices for operating and maintaining equipment, the simplest and most significant way to conserve energy is by choosing efficient equipment. Enter the Energy Star® certification for gas griddles. You’ll find most VCCG models are ENERGY STAR certified while neither of these competitive units are.

In fact, the VCCG is the most comprehensive ENERGY STAR certified griddle platform available. In addition to reduced energy usage and operating costs during the lifetime of the unit— restaurant operators are also eligible for money-saving rebates at the time of purchase when they choose this heavy-duty gas griddle.

Furthermore, while Competitor A and Competitor B griddles only offer atmospheric burners, the VCCG is available both with atmospheric burners and with Vulcan’s patented, next-level Infrared Extreme (IRX™) technology, which reduces gas spend by up to 20 percent over other griddles without affecting production.

 

Paramount Productivity

And speaking of food quality, VCCG Series griddles also excel when it comes to performance. One particular area where the VCCG outperforms the competition? Plate material options.

While Competitor A’s model is available only in steel and Competitor B’s model is available in both steel and chrome, the VCCG series has multiple options from which to choose, including smooth or grooved steel, smooth or grooved chrome, and the exclusive Rapid Recovery™ composite griddle plate, featuring true “corner-to-corner” temperature control for maximum production capacity and even heat distribution.

Just how powerful is it? The Rapid Recovery™ griddle plate produces nearly 9% more lb./h. than a steel griddle plate.

Energy efficient with quick recovery times and even temperatures, the VCCG outshines the competition and is designed to make kitchens more profitable.
