Part 4  Operation 

Cooking Recommendations 

 
1.  The Cobra Salamander has been designed to 

give a good evenness of heat across the rack 
area, so toasting, cheese melting and grilling 

should be relatively even wherever food is 
placed. 

2.  The HIGH position is recommended for most  

grilling, cheese melting functions and LOW  
position for a reduced heat. 

3.  For cooking food through rather than just  

surface browning, rack position three and four 
from the top is recommended. 

4.  With a Branding Plate fitted, the unit is able to 

aid the chef in its ability to produce "medium 
rare" steaks in the front and "well done" steaks at 
the rear - achieved with the sloped Branding 
Plate rack position.  (Shelf 2 and 3 from the top.). 

5.  Heating the Branding Plate under the burners 

before cooking commences, also allows the 
"sealed in flavoured goodness" to be achieved.
