Lesson 27: How to Use an Oven Broiler

How to Use the Oven Broiler

Broiling is less of a cooking method and more of a piece of equipment. Your broiler is a heating element located on the inside of your oven, mounted to the roof. Th ink of your broiler like an upside down grill. It emits the same type of high heat that your grill does. But because the heat comes top-down instead of bottom-up, you can use your broiler to make bubbly, melty cheese quickly and easily. Broilers can also be used to add a bit of char to help finish off a piece of meat or to add external browning. A broiler is not an effective substitute for a grill and should be used as a supplemental or decorative heat source.
