Falcon has expanded its F900 cookline series with the launch of a new electric fryer that is claimed to offer fast heat up times.
Available in four variations, the fryer is said to feature clean lines and an eye-catching design to make it suitable for traditional or open plan kitchens or servery areas. It also features Falcon’s patented Dynamic Link System (DLS), allowing it to be suited with other F900 appliances.
The fryer, model number E9342, has two 7.5 litre pans, each with their own controls. The two 7.5kW elements are designed to give rapid heat up times of 4 minutes, from cold to frying.
Shaune Hall, Falcon’s product development chef commented: “The E9342 is designed as a complimentary fryer, ideal for producing individual portions or small batches of fried foods.
“The two independently-controlled pans give extra flexibility, allowing chefs to fry different products simultaneously, at different temperatures – each fryer having a range of 130-185°C. The individual pans also help chefs cater for customers’ specific dietary requirements, which is a key requirement these days.”
The new fryers feature an Eco setting that is designed to reduce power consumption during pre-heating and can additionally be used as a fat-melt mode. The elements are said to save energy by quickly recovering temperature when fresh food is loaded.
Having two independent pans in quiet times means one can be turned off, reducing running costs. Pans can be drained individually and each one has a safety thermostat to switch the fryer off if the oil gets too hot.
The fryer’s elements rotate to provide access for cleaning, while the four different models give a choice of drainage and filtration options – in all cases the supplied drainage bucket comes with a mesh and basket to filter out cooking debris.
The top of the range E9342F2 has a dedicated, integral oil filtration systems for each pan – this should make oil filtering quick and simple, improve food quality and cut running costs by maximising oil life. It should also minimise the risk of oil cross contamination. All the F900 E9432 models are supplied with fryplates, baskets and lids as standard.
