Langdon Hills-based Contract Catering Equipment (CCE) has signed up to be the master co-ordinator for the supply of QualityFry Fast Chef automatic frying machines in the UK.
The Essex company distributes the product to the Greater London area and has machines on display at its showroom.
QualityFry is now seeking other distributors to co-ordinate with CCE across the rest of the country and believes potential customers could be anything from fast food restaurants to pubs, hospitals and universities.
The automatic frying machine is said to produce no odours or fumes and is therefore suitable for kitchens without extraction ducts.
No installation is required, as the unit is plug and play. It works with 220-240V, is 3.9kW and needs 16A.
With an oil capacity of 6litres, the Fast Chef can simultaneously fry different products using any of eight adjustable frying programmes.
A top of the range version, called the Fast Chef Elite, is also available, which is said to provide quality frying quickly, with a filter system to remove water and active particles from the oil.
