Why Choose a Pressure Fryer

Pressure frying consistently delivers the most flavorful results. It is quicker than any other technique when preparing food in large quantities. To illustrate, cooking under pressure takes less time and at lower temperatures than open frying. As a result, this cooking process uses less energy. It also has a greater throughput, making it great for frying large batches.

Pressure also locks in the food's natural juices and flavor, providing healthier fried food. Pressure also seals out excess cooking oil resulting in less cooking oil usage, saving operators from this ongoing expense. Because foods retain natural juices, pressure-fried foods hold longer in heated holding cabinets.

With a Henny Penny pressure fryer, operators can enjoy oil savings, energy savings, and customers that keep coming back for more!
