A Salamander grill is essentially a high temperature overhead grill which is normally utilized for toasting, browning or even simply hot holding dishes at a set temperature. They are available in electric versions. A salamander is a common feature in the professional kitchen, as it can fulfil many different roles using relatively little space. Salamanders are designed in such a way that they can be mounted directly on a wall or shelf, so that cooking can be administered at eye-level; ideal for monitoring the cooking process.
