Infra Red Burners produce heat in excess of 1600 degrees perfect for searing steaks, boneless chicken breasts, pork chops, shish kabobs and vegetables. Infrared burners produce two kinds of heat such as radiation and convection heat. Infra-red burners are designed to provide complete coverage of a large cooking area. Infra-red burners are protected by stainless steel rod-grate. These burners use the flame to heat a ceramic or metal surface, which then radiates heat towards the ground.
