Standard ASTM F1605-14
1.1 This test method covers the energy consumption and cooking performance of double-sided griddles. The food service operator can use this evaluation to select a double-sided griddle and understand its energy efficiency and productivity.
1.2 This test method is applicable to thermostatically controlled, double-sided gas and electric (or combination gas and electri
c) contact griddles with separately heated top surfaces.
1.3 The double-sided griddle can be evaluated with respect to the following (where applicabl
1.3.1 Energy input rate ( );
1.3.2 Temperature uniformity across the cooking surface(
s) and thermostats accuracy ( );
1.3.3 Preheat energy and time ( );
1.3.4 Idle energy rate ( );
1.3.5 Pilot energy rate, if applicable ( );
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.
