Why Rotisserie Ovens Need Specialised Grease Management

/ / blog

Rotisserie ovens are a staple in many commercial kitchens, known for their ability to produce delicious, evenly-cooked meats with a tantalisingly crispy exterior. However, these ovens are also notorious for generating large quantities of grease, far more than many other types of kitchen equipment.

Unlike conventional ovens, rotisserie ovens rotate the food slowly, allowing it to cook in its own juices. This method, while excellent for flavour and texture, results in a significant amount of grease and fat dripping off the meat throughout the cooking cycle.

1.Clogged Drains and Plumbing:

Grease that makes it’s way into the drainage system can solidify and cause severe blockages. This can lead to expensive repairs and downtime for your commercial kitchen.

2. Fire Hazards:

Accumulated grease is highly flammable. If not properly contained and managed, it can significantly increase the risk of kitchen fires, putting staff and customers at risk.

3. Foul Odours and Hygiene Issues

Excess grease can contribute to foul odours and unwanted pests. This is not only a health hazard but are particularly unwelcome in a food preparation area. This can seriously jeopardise your kitchen’s hygiene standards and can even lead to closure by health inspectors.

4. Environmental Impact

Improperly disposed grease can pollute water supplies and harm wildlife. Effective grease management is essential for reducing environmental damage.

One way to prevent grease build-up from your rotisserie oven is to install an ‘At Source’ Grease Guardian Automatic Grease Removal Device (AGRD). The GGX7C Grease Guardian AGRD is specifically designed to address the challenges posed by high-grease producing equipment like rotisserie ovens.

The GGX7 AGRD automatically skims the FOG (Fats, oils and grease) from wastewater, directing it to an external 7 litre container, which can be easily emptied by staff whenever it gets full. The automatic nature of these devices minimises manual maintenance and ensures consistent performance.

During peak operation times, the GGX7C can be configured to skim more frequently on specific days of the week, effectively managing the significant grease discharge from rotisserie ovens. Additionally, it features a Self-Cleaning Function, an Audio Alarm, and an Action Button, providing greater control over the skimming cycle.

Grease Guardian grease traps are high-capacity and made from durable Italian stainless steel. Therefore, they are built to handle the demanding conditions of commercial kitchens, guaranteeing long-term reliability and performance.
