Why Restaurants Use Propane Grills

3 Key Benefits the Pros Know—and You Should Too!

commercial propane Henry county, va When you’re running a food-service business, you need a cooking method that’s fast, precise, and efficient.

That’s why, whether you’ve got an upscale restaurant, a casual diner, a food truck, or a catering business, you want the power and versatility of propane. Propane delivers precise temperature control and fast, consistent heat that enables your team to serve up a high volume of food without sacrificing quality.

But propane offers more benefits that can make a big difference to your bottom line, and impress your customers, too. Here are three ways using propane in your commercial kitchen can have a big impact (that can make sense at home, too!).

Quality Control

Professional chefs prefer cooking with gas for a reason. Propane produces an instant flame with plenty of Btus—that’s heating energy. There’s no waiting for burners to come to temperature. And propane allows for accurate, fast temperature control at the turn of a knob. That means the money you invest on fresh ingredients isn’t wasted on over- or undercooked food.


Another key benefit of propane is the value it brings due to its versatility. Not only is propane utilized in restaurants to heat grill tops and cooktop burners, but it’s also used in a variety of commercial kitchen equipment. Using propane for your commercial kitchen appliances provides you with the sizzle your broiler requires to sear those delicious steaks and chops and flawlessly melt a cheese topping. Not only do Pizza ovens, steam tables, buffets, deep fryers and other appliances run on propane, but propane is an energy-efficient fuel for heating water for sinks and dishwashers. If you do some or all of your establishment’s laundry on-site, it runs clothes washers and dryers, too.

Propane can also help boost revenue by helping you expand your outdoor service. Propane-powered patio and deck heaters, fire pits, and hearths add ambiance while giving warmth and comfort—and extending your outdoor dining season. Propane can also be used to operate outdoor lighting with a warm glow.


With a propane-powered kitchen and a propane standby generator, even the loss of electricity cannot close your doors. A propane standby generator will not only maintain power, but it will also keep your coolers, refrigerators and freezers running and preventing major loss of food. And of course, with Midway’s dependable commercial propane service, you will always have a ready supply.
