NEW!!! Southbend now offers Plancha units!

You’ve asked for it, now we have it. Introducing our new Plancha.!!!

Southbend's plancha units are a direct contact cooking surface which can also be used as a Hot Top. Across the plancha plate there are several heat zones for diversified cooking.  A high heat zone, max temperature of 800°F, is located toward the front which is great for a quick sear. Toward the back of the plate temperatures decrease to 625°F, great for finishing or holding product. Every plancha has a raised 1/2" thick reinforced steel plate which provides a fast preheat and quick recovery time. There are collection areas on either side of the griddle plate to accommodate a standard 3" wide spatula making our units easy to clean during and after use.
