Broil King CDR-1TFBB Hot Plate

5 / 5 stars      

The Broil King CRD-1TFBB has a tubular element.  While it seems that most people prefer hot plates that have cast iron heating surfaces like the PCR-2S, there are times when a coiled element is a better choice.

The coiled element in the Broil King CRD-1TFBB means that your portable burner reaches your desired temperature quicker than it will when using a cast iron burner.  Perhaps more importantly, your burners will cool down quicker.  If you need to immediately store your countertop burner after use, this will be handy.  If you need to adjust cooking temps up or down part way through cooking then this is a must have feature.

The CRD-1TFBB is one of Broil Kings new lineup of portable or countertop hot plates.  This specific model is the exact same as the CDR-1TB, except the orientation is different.  The CRD-1TFBB is a front to back model, meaning that when you have it set up with the dials facing you, one burner in behind the other.  On the CDR-1TB the hot plate burners are beside each other.  The front to back option is great since it will leave you with more surface working space toward the front of your counter or wherever you are working.


Broil King CDR-1TFBB Double Hot Plate Pros & Cons

Pros:  Heats and cools down quickly – Space saving front to back design – Cleans up easily

Cons:  None to speak of


With cast iron hot plates you are limited to a small degree as to what kind of cookware you can use.  ie, you can’t put glass pots on them.  This is not an issue with the coil element that’s used in the Broil King CRD-1TFBB.

This model provides you with two 6 inch burners, each providing 825 watts of power.  The stainless steel housing makes it both attractive and easy to clean.  Each burner has its infinite heat control as well as a power light.  There is one master on/off switch for the unit.

Broil King has been manufacturing exceptional quality BBQs and grills for years, and that same quality can be seen in their entire hot plate lineup.  So if you’re looking for a double burner hot plate with coil elements, don’t hesitate.  The Broil King CRD-1TFBB Professional Double Space Saver is an excellent choice.
