Catering equipment supplier rexmartins has added a range of induction fryers to its portfolio. The new products are designed to offer an energy efficient alternative to conventional electric and gas models.
The fryers incorporate induction generators which create heat directly in the base of the fryer pan. This should reduce the heat energy lost to the atmosphere in conventional designs.
Energy wastage is further reduced through control of the oil temperature, avoiding the under- and over-shoot of standard thermostatic control. This should also ensure a crisp cooked product as oil absorption is minimised.
As there are no heating elements or gas burner tubes to obstruct access, these induction fryers are said to be easy to clean.
Commercial director, Nick McDonald, explained: “Induction hobs have become established items of equipment in many commercial kitchens as operators have become confident in the reliability of the technology whilst appreciating the significant cost savings from reduced energy consumption. So, it seemed to us the ideal time to introduce further induction options to the market.”
The company offers single and twin tank models, both floor-standing and countertop. The single tank models measure 400mm wide and have 5kW induction generators. The twin-tank models are 800mm wide with 5kW generators to each tank.
