That is why I like the old fashioned salamander. Heat on stove top and pass heated portion over the food to brown it.

I love the looks of this, choc! Hubby bought me a little kitchen propane torch for Christmas, and I'm scared to death of it! The last thing we need is for me to burn our house down!

JMHO of course
I think a carmelized, brownish color is very appealing, however the last time I was in the midst of this process my neighbor, Nurse Jennifer, was doing her lawn in her short shorts and tank top - black, crispy cheese is a lot less appealing! Also, I don't have a double oven, so the broiling function typically conflicts with baking the rolls or finishing something else.

I know you can buy them through restaurant supply catalogs, and JB Prince had them at one time also.

Thanks Rainee, but I've gotten into doing the toaster, microwave thing. Not an aesthetic carmelized color, but it never burns either.
