Can I convert my griddle to Natural Gas?

We do offer a natural gas conversion kit for most of our 28”, 36”, and tailgater units. This excludes the units listed in the chart below, propane-powered air fryers*, and the Omnivore griddle series. Culinary and Culinary Pro series griddles** are not optimized for natural gas conversion. For information on converting a 17" or 22" Tabletop Griddle, please see our article here

To convert to natural gas, you will need to switch the orifices in your valves with the given orifices that are the proper size for natural gas, as well as switch out your regulator with the provided natural gas hose. Please make sure to be gentle when removing and replacing your orifices to avoid stripping out your valves. Here is a video explaining how to install the kit on your griddle.

You can find our natural gas conversion kit here.
