Question about Dynasty DGRSC 48-4GCB Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Cleaning the griddle of our Dynasty Range and standard operations.

We bought our commercial range used from a reputable dealer who refurbishes these units and had it converted and installed by a professional. There is a little rust on the griddle. How do we clean that without damaging the cooktop. Also, when we run the griddle it appears as if there is gas flame coming through the metal grates at the back of the griddle? Is this normal? We haven't used it because we are unsure if this is how it's supposed to work, or if there is a problem we need to have looked by by a pro. Any advice you could give us would be greatly appreciated.

This addresses the cleaning question only. I was a chef for 27 yrs.  Once the griddle surface has begun to rust, and this can and even will be the case on a new stove, you have to get agressive with it. You're going to use sanding tools and oil. 
If the griddle top is heavily rusted, I use my electric palm sander fitted with fine emory paper (the black stuff that can get wet). Wet down the surface with a small amount of oil and work the sander evenly over the entire surface in rhythmic strokes from front to back or side to side. I don't have a scientific reason for this but my gut tells me not to work in circles or random strokes. Try to work the entire surface evenly to avoid creating high or low spots. Use a straight edged spatula or I use a dough cutter (flat edge of about 4" and available from culinary store for under $10) to cleanly scrape  the dirty oil off the surface. Sand in shorter durations & clean often to avoid grinding dirty flavor into the surface. 
Once you have it clean its time to season it. With a better oil focusing on flavor, spread a thin layer over the surface and cook at about 250 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes. Repeat this after every use until you build up a layer of cooked oil almost like enamel to resist rust between uses. This makes a teflon like finish to your griddle.
For regular use and cleaning scrape down immediately after cooking and while the griddle is still hot. When its cool use a hand sanding block you can get from the hardware store. The one I prefer is a firm sponge with emory paper wrapped around it. I store this in a bowl on the shelf above the stove because it is oily and dirty. Alternately you can also use rock salt and a kitchen rag to loosen food particles stuck to the griddle but this makes for messy laundry or throw away rags. We also use viengar or lemon juice and water to loosen food while the griddle is still hot or warm. NEVER USE SOAP!!!!!! You want your food to taste good don't you?
The oil used for cleaning can be anything with minimal flavor like canola oil but the oil used for seasoning the griddle should be a high heat type like sunflower.
Personally I only cook in black cast iron pans and the above method is how I treat them as well. Rock salt and water is all I ever need to clean them between uses.

Is there a cleaning manual for my 6 burner/griddle viking range?


I have a product that I use to clean my burners and griddle with, it is made by ECOLAB and is called Greasecutter Plus. It doesn't hurt the range but it makes it look brand new, even my griddle comes completely clean. You just spray it on then let it sit for a bit then it wipes clean.
