Our high quality, 12 gauge stainless steel Commercial Style Griddle accessory distributes heat evenly and is incredibly durable. It is patterned after those found in restaurant kitchens, and provides a flat top surface perfect for eggs, bacon and delicate items like scallops or fish burgers. A full-width drip tray catches any excess grease for easy cleanup. The Griddle fits right on top of the cooking grate for the Patio FR and Sterling Patio FR series of grills.
Tips for cooking on the Commercial Style Griddle

IMPORTANT: Do not use the Patio FR or Sterling Patio FR Commercial-style Griddle on heat settings above medium-high. TEC Grills can easily reach 900 degrees F (and above!), and even the griddle’s 12 gauge stainless steel will buckle under this intense heat. If the griddle buckles, turn the grill off and allow the griddle to cool. The griddle will regain its original form.
