Jestic Foodservice Equipment has added the Henny Penny Velocity Series range of pressure fryers to its portfolio.
Each model is said to combine lower oil volume with enhanced oil life to achieve savings of up to 80%.
The Velocity Series is intended to dramatically lower the cost of high volume frying. The design features a smaller fry pot which is capable of cooking 72 pieces of food in 38litres of oil, said to be 25% less oil per piece than other high volume fryers on the market.
The units are designed to generate ongoing savings by achieving four times greater oil life and reducing the need to dispose of used oil by 25%, although trials in the USA have reportedly seen savings of up to 80%.
To do this, Henny Penny has engineered the equipment to perform automatic filtration after every cook cycle, taking a similar length of time as racking for the next load. This automatic filtration, combined with the use of oil jets to wash food particles from the pot, should eliminating scorching and reduce the time needed to clean the unit at the end of a shift.
A patented counter-balance system is claimed to make raising and lowering a load easy while consistent operation should be achieved through the touch/tap controls. Featuring a three-line menu style digital display, operators can pre-programme up to 160 products into the controller using the USB interface.
Safety is observed thanks to a pressure lock monitor, high-temperature protection and a heavy-duty, fully insulated stainless steel frypot.
Michael Eyre, product director at Jestic Foodservice Equipment commented: “The Henny Penny Velocity Series represents the very latest in pressure frying from this global leading brand. Smaller, easier to use and achieving savings of up to 80% compared to other leading pressure fryers, the appliances demonstrate the very best in consistency and quality in one.
“Designed for high-volume frying, everything about these appliances has been carefully crafted to meet the needs of the operator, right from the intuitive touch controls and pre-programmed menu to the high-efficiency heating elements and low oil volume to generate super-fast recovery time for continuous cooking.”
