natural gas fryers
Mini range is an apt description for the compact and versatile gas hot plate. Gas hot plates deliver all the advantages of their full-sized brothers, but take up a fraction of the space. Mounted on a counter top, refrigerated storage unit or storage cabinet, gas hot plates require no floor space and add greater flexibility to kitchen design and cooking capability. Gas hot plates can be used outdoors, making them a popular choice for catering or off-site events.
