Culinary Uses

A Broiler is either a separate section of an oven designed to broil, impart High Heat from above, or a setting on a conventional home oven that turns the whole oven into a High Heat Broiler.

Broilers cook food under high temperatures from above, between 400° F to 500° F (204° to 260° C), but some ovens can approach 600° F or more. Make sure your broiler is up to heat load before broiling and always remain aware that extreme heat can burn and damage the food, very quickly.
