Culinary technique - Salamander cooking
A salamander oven, or salamander broiler, is a versatile piece of cooking equipment that uses high heat for finishing foods. A salamander's uses includes melting, broiling, top-browning, grilling and toasting. A salamander allows you to quickly and easily melt plant-based cheese, caramelize the sugar on desserts, brown the top of casseroles, toast sandwiches, or even give a crispy finish. Some salamanders can be adjusted to a lower setting to hold food at a warm, food safe temperature.
