In 1953, (parent company) Midco designed an innovative new charcoal-free, gas-fired broiler for famed Chicago restaurant Don Roth's Black Hawk Restaurant. Over the years, the EmberGlo division has expanded to encompass not only gas and electric broilers but a full line of heavy-duty food steamers and commercial kitchen accessories. These include open hearth gas broilers, electric char broilers and food steamers. EmberGlo gas boilers are all-ceramic, open-hearth, charcoal-free. A S Catering Supplies can source EmberGlo spares.
