Ventless Fryers – Portable And Smarter Solutions To Deep Frying
Ventless fryers are multi-purpose commercial deep fryers that can cook a wide range of products quickly and efficiently without needing a restaurant hood. Proper ventilation with hoods and ductwork is a must for commercial kitchens. Many national and local fire and health codes require hoods above cooking equipment. However, installing an exhaust system for each appliance may not be possible due to legal restrictions, costs, or building structures. A ventless fryer saves money and space by removing the need for heavy ductwork or kitchen modifications.
Restaurant kitchens are replete with cooking equipment, producing grease-laden vapors and heat. These can cause foul odors and severe fire risks if not vented properly. Ventless fryers house built-in baffle filters to catch the airborne grease, steam, and dirt particles in the air, clean them and recirculate the air back into the kitchen. They have charcoal filters to remove the cooking smells, provide fresh air, and a fire suppression system to minimize fire risks. Plus, these fryers are more eco-friendly as they do not dump dirty air outside.
Ventless fryers are self-contained units with more advanced features than standard deep fryers. Their onboard oil filtration system drains the used oil and dumps it in one step. You turn a valve and refill the oil tank with filtered oil, reducing oil consumption by up to 50%. The optional auto-basket lift system automatically sinks and raises the basket, making the cooking process safer and easier. Some units even provide remote monitoring. For example, the on-demand KITCHENTRAC™ in Giles ventless fryers enables you to monitor your device through Wi-Fi connectivity.
Ventless fryers require minimum human involvement, reducing operator errors, increasing oil lifespan, and promising a safer frying experience. They are smarter and portable solutions for mobile kitchens and on-site caterers, and Chef’s Deal offers single-well and double-well ventless fryers for sale. Ventless equipment may not be allowed or fit every location. Therefore, you may also wish to check out other commercial deep fryers.
