Serve excellent gyros, shawarmas, kebabs, and sandwiches with a gyro machine. Also known as vertical broilers, these units use radiant heat from either gas or electric burners to cook meat and other products. They are ideal for food trucks, dining halls, Greek restaurants, and foodservice establishments that have gyros, shawarma, doner kebabs, or similar treats on the menu. A commercial gyro meat cooker is the perfect way to serve your guests with abundant amounts of delicious meat.
A gyro is a signature dish in Greece. It’s made up of shaved meat, with vegetables and Tzatziki sauce in flatbread. The meat (usually lamb shawarma, chicken shawarma, turkey shawarma, or pork) is roasted in the special shawarma machine via a vertical spit/rod that slowly turns to expose the food to backside burners. After food has been cooked, the gyro broiler will act as a warmer - holding meat in place so your staff can shave off portions on demand.
Because it holds the roasting meat in place, the spit (steel rod) is one of the most important considerations when shopping for the right gyro cooker. You want a spit that is strong and long enough to support the volume of meat you might want to roast at a time. Check the weight capacity of the grill. Another important consideration is the amount of space you have in your establishment. You need enough tabletop space where the machine can sit on for easier loading and slicing of meat. Many models available on Kitchenall come with infrared heating, adjustable heater-to-food distance, heavy-duty motors, a stainless steel construction, and other features meant to enhance the reliability of the unit over the long term.
