I was watching youtube vids about cooking and I saw this Gordon Ramsay one about broccoli soup. Around the 56 second mark to the right of the broccoli on the table is an elevated piece of metal with holes in it. What is it?

So far I'm thinking some kind of weird large grater or a popcorn sifter. Can anyone help?

It's simply a built-in vent for the built-in appliances integrated within his commercial kitchen table.


I believe that is the ventilation for the range, rather than a kitchen utensil.
