Dutch translation:Afrikaans: skottelbraai, Dutch: schotelbraai
Explanation:
I think you must have the two languages mixed up here. Afrikaans very seldom has the combination of "sch", but it is very common in Dutch. More context would of course help, but in a cooking set-up such as a restaurant, the word skottelskaar/skottelbraai makes perfect sense.

English: wok, Afrikaans "skottelskaar".


Explanation:
I'd like to confirm keurig's explanation. A possible English word word be "wok", a shallow bowl used in so-called Chinese stir-fry meals. The Afrikaans word is "skottel" (dish) of more commonly "skottelbraai" (dish barbeque) or "skottelskaar" (a "skaar" is literally a plough shear). I don't know what the Dutch wil use, but "wok" might be known.

Cadac gas barbeque


Explanation:
Many moons have passed since this request was made. However, both answers fall short of the exact meaning.

'skottelbraai' is indeed the Afrikaans word.

This a widely-known term in South Africa. It was originally used to describe a gas grill, manufactured by CADAC, that utilises of a deep pan receptacle (yes, similar to a wok). However, along the lines of 'Hoover' it has come to mean almost any gas-type braai (barbeque).

They are fantastic and are available for sale in Europe these days.
