Equipment Description
Groen NHFP and NHFP(E) Gas Fired Braising
Pans provide a stainless steel pan equipped with
heat transfer fins, burner/combustion chamber,
power tilting mechanism, thermostatic controls,
and hinged cover. The Braising Pan serves as a
braising unit, griddle, fry pan, oven, kettle, bain
marie, or food warmer and server. It can also be
adapted for use as a steamer.
A fully enclosed, spring-type actuator
counterbalances the cover to keep it opened or
closed. The cover opens to the back and is
hinged to the frame, so that it moves
independently of the pan body.
Different ignition systems distinguish the basic
models. Model NHFP uses a thermopilecontrolled, standing pilot flame to light the main
burner. Model NHFP(E) ignites the main burner
directly with an electrically heated hot surface
igniter.
The pan body is constructed of heavy-duty
stainless steel welded into one solid piece, with a
polished interior and a semi-deluxe finish on the
exterior. A pouring lip is welded into the front
wall. The cooking surface is a stainless steel
clad plate fitted with welded heat transfer fins
that assure uniform heat transfer over the entire
surface. The gas burner/combustion chamber
supplies the heat.
The following models and options are available:
Model
Pan Body Dimensions, Inches
The pan is tilted forward by an electrically
powered actuator mechanism. A three-position
switch on the front of the control console gives
the operator positive, smoothly operating control
of tilting. When the pan is tilted, the burners shut
off automatically.
The thermostat provides automatic control of
cooking temperature. The thermostat dial on the
front of the control console turns the heat on or
off and sets the pan temperature.

4. To Move a Unit on Casters
2. Leave the cover vent open to let excess
steam escape. For long simmering
operations, you may wish to close the
vent.To check cooking progress when
the cover has been closed, grasp the
plastic handle of the vent cover, lift it
slightly, and move it quickly to either
side.
The unit must be anchored with a cable
or chain to avoid accidentally breaking or
pulling loose the gas connection. When
the unit is to be moved, first turn off and
disconnect the gas connection.
Disconnect the cable from its anchor
point on the floor or wall. Anchor the
unit again as soon as it is in its new
operating location or returned to the
previous location. Turn on the gas
supply and check for leaks with a soap
solution. If leaks are found do not
operate the equipment. Call for service.
2. Standing to one side of the pan (to avoid
the steam that will be released) grasp the
nearer corner of the cover handle and
raise the cover. The cover will stay in the
open position until you push it down.
4. To pour or dump product, remove
grease, or assist cleaning, first raise the
cover, then tilt the pan up and forward by
pressing down on the power tilt switch.
When you release the switch, the pan
body will hold its position.
5. To Preheat the Pan
a. For best braising or frying results,
preheat pan before you put in any
food.
b. To get an even temperature across
the pan, preheat at a setting of 300oF
or less for 15 minutes or through
several on-off cycles of the burner.
WARNING
IF THE PAN CONTAINS ITEMS IN SAUCE OR
MELTED FAT, THEY CAN SLIDE FORWARD
SUDDENLY DURING TILTING AND SPLASH
OUT THE HOT LIQUID.
WARNING
DO NOT HEAT AN EMPTY PAN FOR MORE
THAN FIVE MINUTES AT A SETTING
HIGHER THAN 300oF. DAMAGE TO THE
PAN COULD RESULT.

Cleaning
After each use, turn the thermostat to "OFF"
and clean all food-contact surfaces to
maintain proper sanitation. At the end of
each day or at least once every 12 hours,
turn off the heat and shut off the electric
power to the unit, then clean both the interior
and the exterior of the pan. See page 11 for
cleaning instructions.
Cooking
1. To simmer or slowly heat an item, set the
dial at about 210oF or lower. Put the
cover down to keep moisture loss at a
minimum, or leave the cover up to help
dry the product. Set the thermostat
higher to cook or drive off moisture
faster. You may adjust the thermostat to
any setting in the thermostat range to
cook the item exactly as required.
Sequence of Operation

burner. Depressing the knob in this
position overrides the automatic control,
which otherwise shuts off the gas supply
when the thermopile is cold.
When the operator presses down the
knob on the Combination Gas Control
Valve and turns it to "PILOT", gas from
the supply line is admitted to the pilot
Lighting and maintaining the pilot flame

for sixty seconds heats the thermopile to
operating temperature, so the thermopile
begins to provide electric current at 750
millivolts. Electricity from the thermopile
powers the control circuit and the
Combination Gas Control Valve. When
the thermopile begins operating at full
capacity, the knob may be released.
The thermostat controls heating by
alternately calling for flames at the full
capacity of the main burner and then
signaling the control to shut the burner
off completely.
Because the control works in this "all or
nothing" manner, the pan heats as fast
as it can until it reaches the set
temperature, no matter what that
temperature is. Turning the thermostat
dial to a higher setting will cause heating
to continue longer, until the pan reaches
the higher temperature, but it cannot
make the pan heat any faster.
When the knob is turned "ON", the
automatic valve for the main burner
becomes able to open. Setting the
thermostat causes a signal to be sent to
the valve, which opens and admits gas to
main burner. Gas from the main burner is
ignited by the pilot flame. When the pan
reaches the set temperature, the
thermostat switch opens, stopping the
signal to the main burner valve.
The pans are protected from overheating
by the high-limit thermostat. If the pan
temperature rises above 425oF, the highlimit thermostat causes the automatic
gas control valve to close. When the pan
cools, the thermostat automatically
resets and permits normal operation to
continue.
This causes the valve to close. When the
pan cools below the set temperature, the
thermostat switch closes and starts
another heating cycle. On-off cycling
continues and maintains the pan at the
set temperature.
The power tilt switch controls a
reversible motor that drives a ball screw
mechanism. When the switch is held in
the lowered position, the mechanism
raises the pan body. The body rests on
trunnions near the front corners, so it
tilts forward until the switch is released
or the body reaches the vertical limit. Any
time the pan is tilted more than ten
degrees from the horizontal, a tilt limit
switch automatically turns off the gas
flow to the main gas burner.
B. Model NHFP(E)
When the operator sets the desired
temperature on the thermostat dial, the
thermostat switch closes and causes
electric current to heat the Hot Surface
igniter. When the igniter gets hot enough
to ignite gas, a sensor built into the
electronic module signals the automatic
gas control valve, which admits gas to
the burner. Gas flowing from the burner
is ignited directly by the igniter. A
separate sensor detects flame at the
burner and sends a signal that turns off
electric power to the igniter. If flame is
not sensed within 30 seconds, a timer
shuts off the gas flow.
If the tilting motor gets too hot during
operation, an overheat protection switch
will open and stop the motor. When the
motor cools sufficiently, the switch will
reset automatically and permit tilting to
begin again.
When the pan reaches the set
temperature, the thermostat switch
opens, stopping the signal to the gas
control valve and causing the valve to
close. When the pan cools below the set
temperature, the thermostat switch
closes and starts another heating cycle.
On-off cycling continues and maintains
the pan at the desired temperature.

Cleaning
abrasive materials or metal implement that
might scratch the surface, because scratches
make the pan hard to clean and provide
places for bacteria to grow. Do NOT use steel
wool, which may leave particles imbedded in
the pan surface and cause eventual
corrosion and pitting.
WARNING
KEEP WATER AND SOLUTIONS OUT OF
CONTROLS AND BURNERS. NEVER SPRAY
OR HOSE THE CONTROL CONSOLE OR
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS.
5. As part of the daily cleaning program,
clean all external and internal surfaces that
may have been soiled. Remember to check
such parts as the underside of the cover,
control console, etc.
1. Before any cleaning operation, shut off
the burner by turning the thermostat dial to
"OFF". If water or cleaning solution will be
sprayed, unplug the unit from the electric
power source, or shut off the power at the
circuit breaker or fuse panel.
6. Controls and the control console may be
cleaned with a damp cloth.
2. Clean all food-contact surfaces soon
after use, before the pan has cooled
completely. If the unit is in continuous use,
thoroughly clean and sanitize both interior
and exterior at least once every 12 hours.
WARNING
THE CONTROL BOX IS NOT WATERPROOF. TAKE CARE TO KEEP WATER AND
CLEANING SOLUTIONS OUT OF THE BOX.
