In 1953, Midco designed an innovative new charcoal-free, gas-fired broiler for famed Chicago restaurant Don Roth's Black Hawk Restaurant. In time, industry demand for this exceptional development resulted in the creation of the EmberGlo division, a branch of Midco International dedicated to the needs of the food service industry.
Midco was already the worlds leading manufacturer of power burners, utilizing a combination of innovative product design, engeneering and rigorus attention to quality. An attention that would follow to their new division - EmberGlo.
Over the years, the EmberGlo division has expanded to encompass not only gas and electric broilers but a full line of heavy-duty food steamers and commercial kitchen accessories. Although the product line has expanded, the essential elements of EmberGlo's success have remained the same quality, reliability, durability and customer service.
