Standard Test Method for Performance of Griddles
|Standards number:||ASTM F1275-14R20|
|Keywords:||efficiency; energy; griddle; performance; production capacity; throughput;|
1.1 This test method evaluates the energy consumption and cooking performance of griddles. The food service operator can use this evaluation to select a griddle and understand its energy efficiency and production capacity.
1.2 This test method is applicable to thermostatically controlled, single-source (bottom) gas and electric griddles.
1.3 The griddle can be evaluated with respect to the following (where applicable):
1.3.1 Energy input rate ( ),
1.3.2 Temperature uniformity across the cooking surface and accuracy of the thermostats ( ),
1.3.3 Preheat energy and time ( ),
1.3.4 Idle energy rate ( ),
1.3.5 Pilot energy rate ( ),
1.3.6 Cooking energy rate and efficiency ( ), and
1.3.7 Production capacity and cooking surface temperature recovery time ( ).
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
