Standex Food Service Equipment has supplied a BKI gas pressure fryer to Rajas, a fast food restaurant in Erdington, Birmingham.
Rajas is a franchise chain with 30 outlets throughout the Midlands and the north of England. The restaurants offer a range of freshly cooked halal meals, including fried breaded chicken, burgers, pizzas, kebabs, panini and baguettes.
The BKI LGF-FC gas pressure fryer was supplied via Birmingham-based Charles Catering Equipment for frying breaded chicken portions at the Erdington outlet.
The restaurant’s proprietor, Parves Akhtar, reports that the seasoned breaded chicken is very popular with regular customers, adding that the fast food store serves over 1,000 fried chicken portions per week.
Akhtar has also recently opened a second Rajas’ restaurant at Maypole, Birmingham, at which he has also installed a BKI gas pressure fryer.
“We have been very impressed with the performance of the fryers at both of our restaurants. We will have no hesitation in specifying the BKI pressure fryer for future fast food projects,” he said.
The BKI LGF-FC model features a user friendly 8 programme controller for simple operation, accurate cooking times and precise temperatures, delivering consistently high standards of cooked food quality.
Fast, low pressure frying produces succulent and moist meat with a crispy breaded coating. The pressure fryer’s large capacity and high efficiency instant burners allow chefs to react quickly to surges in demand, especially during peak weekend services.
To extend the life of cooking oil, the pressure fryer features a cold zone, which collects breading fall off. Stainless steel construction and a quick disconnect, oil filtration system simplify cleaning and oil drainage regimes, reducing labour costs.
