You can’t do it with most infrared systems because they have ceramic emitters that burn very hot and completely open fireboxes that allow heat to spread across the entire cooking surface. Convection systems circulate hot also have this same challenge due to their open firebox under the cooking surface.
With our proprietary infrared cooking system, each burner is enclosed in a separate compartment so that the temperature of one doesn’t affect the other(s). SABER solves other grilling problems too. With traditional ceramic IR emitters, radiant heat is produced as short wave lengths, which tend to burn and char food more easily. These grills also flare up and require higher maintenance because of food drippings and debris dropping directly onto the burner. SABER’s advanced IR generates longer wave lengths for cooking more evenly with fewer temperature fluctuations. And maintenance is greatly reduced because grease vaporizes instead of clogging the emitter.
True zonal cooking is one more way SABER combines performance, innovation and affordability like no one else.
