Commercial Pressure Fryers – Healthier, Faster, Tastier
A commercial pressure fryer is a piece of unique cooking equipment that combines pressure cooking with frying. Like standard commercial deep fryers, pressure frying also involves cooking products in hot oil. However, pressure fryers have larger oil tanks and a clamshell lid. Items are sealed inside the tank, and the pressure speeds up the cooking process. Therefore, industrial pressure fryers can cook boned proteins faster and keep up with peak demands in busy foodservice facilities.
Speed in cooking and serving is the staple of successful restaurants. The faster cooking times with commercial pressure fryers offer another benefit. Products cook faster with higher oil temperatures and pressure with less time in the oil. The finished product pulls in less fat, the breaded crust turns perfectly crispy, and the inside remains juicy. This cooking method also reduces sedimentation, minimizing oil filtration and dumping cycles. You can thus increase the oil lifespan. You have healthier deep-frying with less fat and natural flavors sealed inside the food.
Fuel type is not a big issue in commercial pressure fryers. Enclosed frying requires less energy than open frying because the atmospheric pressure inside the oil tank enables faster cooking without heating the oil to high temperatures. Based on convenience, you can choose a gas or electric pressure fryer. When you buy a gas pressure fryer, you need to decide between natural or LP gas. More critical than the power type is oil filtration. A built-in oil filtration system provides filtered clean oil for each batch without extra human labor and mess.
Speed is your hot priority if you serve crazy crowds during rush times. Then, an industrial pressure fryer can be a valuable investment for you.
