LOWER PLATEN STOP W/WASHER DP1
Platens (flat cooking surfaces) provide a method for efficient two-sided cooking, while accommodating a variety of products. Platens are made of either stainless steel or a composite material. Operators can specify grooved platens for items that require grill markings. Manufacturers recommend the use of nonstick sheets for the top platen since it is difficult to scrape off food. Without the sheet, the top of a burger or other food can stick to the platen, compromising its quality. Sheets last about two weeks with good maintenance.
A stop is a part designed to restrict the movement of a rotary mechanism, linear (sliding) mechanism or its components. It protects a mechanism from loss of adjustment or damage due to extreme movement. A stop or stopper may also be designed to calibrate and halt the flow of solids, liquids or gases.
A washer is a thin plate (typically disk-shaped, but sometimes square) with a hole (typically in the middle) that is normally used to distribute the load of a threaded fastener, such as a bolt or nut. Other uses are as a spacer, spring (Belleville washer, wave washer), wear pad, preload indicating device, locking device, and to reduce vibration (rubber washer). Spring washers, which have axial flexibility are used to prevent fastening or loosening due to vibrations. Locking (lock) washers prevent fastening or loosening by preventing unscrewing rotation of the fastening device.
In 1983 a pizza operator had an idea that would revolutionize the pizza industry. John Lamonica and Stearns Product Development created a press that would be used to press the first dough ball. Proluxe history was made. From pizza presses to tortilla presses, panini grills to bun caramelizers, they have developed restaurant equipment featuring various innovative technologies. After 30 years of commitment to innovation for the foodservice industry, DoughPro has changed their name to ProLuxe. Their products have been providing kitchens with consistent, quality performance throughout the world. Their product line has increased to include TerraLuxe stone hearth ovens as well.
