A chargrill, also known as a charbroiler, is a cooking device used for grilling food, especially meats, over an open flame or high heat source. Unlike traditional grills that use charcoal or wood as a heat source, chargrills in commercial settings are often powered by gas or electricity. They feature a series of metal grates or bars placed over the heat source, allowing food to be cooked directly over the flames or heated elements.

Chargrills are popular in restaurants, catering businesses, and other commercial kitchens because they provide a convenient and efficient way to achieve that distinct grilled flavor and char marks on various food items. The open flames or heated elements cook the food quickly and impart a smoky, grilled taste to meats, vegetables, and seafood.

Chargrills come in different sizes and configurations, including countertop models for smaller kitchens and larger standalone units for high-volume operations. They are commonly used for grilling steaks, burgers, chicken, fish, vegetables, and other grilled dishes. Some advanced chargrill models allow for adjustable heat settings, making it possible to control the cooking temperature based on the specific requirements of the food being prepared.
