Valentine’s Evo 600 fryer, taken out of the fryer portfolio last year, has been reintroduced by Valentine Equipment due to repeated requests from customers.
Steve Elliott, sales director for Valentine Equipment and sister firm Cuisinequip, explained: “We took the decision in 2018 to withdraw the Evo 600 from the Evo range of fryers we offer in the UK and Ireland because Valentine Fabrique wanted to slim down their production lines in Switzerland and it was felt that the Evo 600 might not be that popular.
“However, we have been inundated with requests from end users, partner contractors and foodservice equipment dealers to make the large capacity fryer available again. Among those who contacted us were: Northwest Catering Engineers, Alliance Scotland and Red Moon Concepts.”
The Evo 600 Fryer has a large output capacity of up to 68kg per hour. Like all Evo fryers, for optimum performance the fryer is designed with fast heat-up to eliminate switching the unit on a long-time before it is needed. The kW rating is claimed to be high enough to react quickly without consuming unnecessary energy.
Again, in common with the range, it has a reduced oil capacity, with reportedly the same output as the previous model it replaced, saving up to a claimed 10% in oil and energy costs.
The Evo 600’s list price is £4,620 + VAT, and it comes with a 3 year warranty and a 20 year warranty covering the pan.
