Offering a fast and efficient method to achieve that perfect sear, caramelization, and flavor infusion in our favorite foods. Among these, the Infrared Sear Zone stands out as a powerhouse, capable of reaching astonishing temperatures of up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit in just a matter of minutes.


For many seasoned chefs, mastering the art of searing is essential to creating mouthwatering dishes, particularly when it comes to steak. The secret lies in searing the exterior of the meat quickly, sealing in its natural juices and ensuring a tender, juicy outcome. With the Infrared Sear Zone, achieving that coveted medium-rare or medium steak is a breeze—just two minutes on each side for a perfect rare steak, followed by a brief stint on medium heat for the ideal medium result. For those who prefer their steak well-done, patience is key, with a total cooking time of around 12 minutes yielding a delectably charred exterior and succulent interior.


However, the benefits of searing extend far beyond steak alone. Whether it’s pork, chicken, or even fish, the intense heat of the searing station can elevate any dish, imparting those coveted grill marks and enhancing flavor profiles.
