Melting cheese

How do you guys with food trucks  melt cheese without putting sauce/gravy on top? I have seen some operators sell french fries with fries, bacon and or ground beef and melted cheddar cheese on top but how is the cheese melted without sauce?
I tried using the microwave but it just made the fries soggy. I was thinking about buying a counter top broiler or a counter top convection oven made for use in residential but not sure how long it would take to heat up and how long to melt the cheese. Also wasn't sure if the container could go in the unit itself.
I want to sell something like this but without making the fries go soggy. I also want to make sure that it only takes a minute to melt the cheese after the fries are done.

    As soon as the fries come out of the oil, toss them in a metal bowl with your seasoning and finely shredded cheese. This will coat the fries and start melting the cheese.

    A restaurant would use a salamander.
    In a truck, I would think a searzall would work well.
    Compact, nearly zero foot print, use on demand, and fairly inexpensive.

    Sure you have to use disposable propane tanks.
    But you can get an adapter from propane refill adapter.
    Use it to refill the small bottles from a full size tank.
