Welbilt has announced the launch of its new Frymaster FQ4000 easyTouch, the third brand within the Welbilt portfolio to use patented easyTouch technology.
According to the company, the product allows caterers to experience frying at its finest, yet simplest form, thanks to the addition of an intuitive, 7” colour touchscreen which provides one touch access to pioneering frying controls such as auto filtration and quality control display.
Both of these enable the operator to filter the oil at the simple touch of the screen, at the optimum time.
The product’s control panel includes pre-loaded cooking profiles, meaning operators can conveniently tailor their fryer according to their menus.
This system reduces the risk of errors during busy service periods and ensures that high quality, consistent fry results are achieved.
Welbilt claims that even staff with minimal training are able to guarantee excellent fry results thanks to the step-by-step instructions available with each cooking profile.
Steve Hemsil, Welbilt’s Sales Director for the UK & Ireland, said: “As with all Convotherm and Merrychef easyTouch models, the FQ4000 easyTouch is capable of KitchenConnect communication.
“This means that operators are able to create connected kitchens with Welbilt, thus easing the training and servicing process.”
He added: “The FQ4000 easyTouch® truly puts the user first, both from a simplicity and safety point view thanks to the inclusion of innovative safety features. These features help kitchens to run swiftly and safely by fostering a frying process that’s efficient, intuitive, productive and most importantly, safe.”
The product uses on average 40% less oil and 10% less energy than other leading frying models, thanks to its unique open frypot design which also helps operators save time and labour due to easy cleaning properties.
