Contact Us

The Taylor L811 commercial grill features three individually controlled cooking surfaces and being part of the new L-series of grills these surfaces are even larger than before for more output. With the optional platens, cooking times are less than half that of an ordinary grill while cooking both the top and bottom of food simultaneously. The one-touch menu selection automatically provides accurate time, temperature, and gap settings for every product. And as always, it’s built using the high-quality Taylor manufacturing process, ensuring it is constructed to the highest standards and that you get the best and longest-lasting equipment on the market. 

One touch menu selection automatically provides accurate TIME, TEMPERATURE, and GAP settings for every product.

Programmable Controls
Microprocessor controls are programmable for simplified operator operation. Offers flexibility for future menu items and product specification changes at the restaurant level. Customizable to offer multi-stage settings per product, five languages (English, Spanish, French, Russian and Portuguese), standby alert to conserve energy, and four timers that can be used specifically for flat grill cooking.

External USB Port
External USB port allows user access to upload new menu and promotional items. Menu changes can be sent electronically to other store locations, saving time and eliminating operator error.

Upper Platens
Three upper platens will close automatically to the preset gap setting with the touch of one button. Air cylinder system provides quiet, simple, trouble-free operation of the upper platen. As a safety feature, platen will automatically open at loss of power, or if an obstruction is detected.

Precise Automatic Gapping
Solid platform with 3-point reference plane and fixed (home) reference point. Once programmed, the upper platen automatically achieves accurate and consistent gaps, every time. Precise, repeatable gapping assures product safety and better quality finished product.

Cooking Zones
Three separately controlled cooking zones. Three independent controlled gas infra-red burners heat the lower cook surface. Each upper platen contains two independently controlled electric heating elements. Together these thermal systems provide even plate temperatures and quick recovery.

Side-To-Side Release Material
Protects entire upper platen cooking surface and makes cleaning easy. Improved installation and removal process away from hot surfaces.

Patty Cook Position Placement Guide
Lower cooking surface is etched for a permanent patty placement guide for two-sided cooking.

Optional Weighted Platens- 3-Phase Models Only
The weighted platen is designed to compress a fresh hand-formed product to a patty, while maintaining the juices and quality of the product along with the desired sear.


One dedicated electrical connection is required. See the Electrical chart for the proper electrical requirements. Manufactured to be permanently connected. Consult your local Taylor distributor for receptacle specifications as local codes allow.
