Perfect for gyros, shawarmas, tacos al pastor, and doner kebabs, this Avantco VB205 gas vertical broiler is a great addition to any restaurant that wants to serve consistently delicious sandwiches, tacos, wraps, and even burrito bowls! This vertical broiler uses five independently controlled ceramic infrared burners to evenly cook up to 130 lb. of meat, keeping the inside juicy and tender while the outside gently crisps. The touch-n-stop design allows you to gently stop the spit while shaving the meat without damaging the motor. This broiler is versatile enough to work with and serve all varieties of meats from lamb, chicken, turkey, and beef to lamb and goat.

The 34" spit and protected motor rotate meat slowly to give you total control over cooking. It also features adjustable stainless steel heat shields that maintain operator comfort and allow for faster cooking to maximize efficiency and reduce energy costs.

Perfect control is yours with this vertical broiler! The burners are adjustable on a rail mechanism to direct heat where you need it. Also, the spit assembly features an easy-load system, which is adjustable in height and tilt to accommodate different shapes and sizes of meat.

To keep your countertop free of drips and make cleanup easy, this unit has a wide drip basin and comes with a drip pan to catch grease. It also comes with a stainless steel catch pan to collect sliced meat for service. This vertical broiler has a durable stainless steel construction that is made to stand up to commercial kitchens. While it comes ready to connect to a natural gas line, it is field convertible to liquid propane and includes a conversion kit. This unit requires a 120V electrical connection for operation.

I like this vertical broiler. It has taken my passion for cooking to another level. The heat it produces gets so hot! It’s a game changer for me. The heat shields are a bit cumbersome so I don’t use them. Also, I don’t know why yet, (had it for less than 4 months) but sometimes one of the ceramic plates turns off and makes a weird noise so I close the valve. All I got to do is turn them all off and reignite and we back in action!

The broiler works, but the nobs are on the right side and with the part that shields the heat to go back towards the meet, it becomes difficult to turn the nobs that control the heat. Also they are backwards. On is off and off is on, and adjusting the temperature is difficult at best. It is an on or off situation. Sadly I am going to have to return this as we can’t make el-pastor on this..
