Henny Penny Open Fryers
Open frying submerges food in an open vat of hot oil, a cooking method commonly used for items that should be crispy when done — like fries, for example. Kitchens utilize open fryers instead of pressure fryers for a variety of menu items, including foods that float while cooking.
Built-in oil filtration systems come standard on every open fryer. This automatic system helps extend oil life and reduces the effort required to keep your fryers functioning. Faster temperature recovery is also a hallmark of Henny Penny open fryers, with third-party testing confirming their designs help save energy and keep things running efficiently.
Cooking better food with less oil—that’s the inspiration behind the innovative Evolution Elite® open fryer from Henny Penny. This revolutionary family of reduced oil capacity fryers uses 40% less oil than regular open fryers and lets you filter any vat any time at the touch of a button. Fast recovery, automatic oil top-off and easy-to-use controls mean you’re saving time, energy and labor with every load.
The Henny Penny Evolution Elite isn’t just an advanced fryer… it raises frying to a whole new order of quality, simplicity and cost management.
Designed to be the true workhorse in the kitchen, the Henny Penny 320 Series open fryers are among the most reliable and energy efficient in the business. But they’ve also made the 320 Series efficient in a different way—by letting you select the size, design, and vat configuration that best matches your menu and volume. You get the exact fryer you need. And the high-performance multi-well frying, easy programmable operation, fast temperature recovery, built-in filtration… all standard.

A specially-designed vat lets Henny Penny 340 Series large capacity open fryers strike the optimum balance between frying surface area and equipment footprint. The 340 Series features a wider, shallower fry vat that maximizes surface area to volume for more consistent frying results with items that float while cooking. Powerful, efficient heating elements and burner technology mean extremely reliable production, with higher throughput, lower energy costs and longer frying oil life. Built-in filtration makes it fast, convenient and safer to keep oil fresh and product quality at its highest.
If you have a whole lot of crispy chicken, wings, poppers and veggies to do, take a close look at the powerful 340 Series.
OFE291 / OFG391 – High Volume
It doesn’t get much more popular than crispy or extra crispy fried chicken. And that’s what the Henny Penny OFE 291/OFG 391 is all about. It’s the only open fryer on the market with the capacity to cook up to 21 lb. (9.5 kg) of food in a single load. Plus, Henny Penny high reliability heat transfer means you’re never waiting—you’re cooking. Fast recovery, higher throughput, less down time. And all day long you’ll be saving on frying oil, energy, labor, and floor space compared to an equivalent number of smaller fryers from other manufacturers.
It’s easy to use, too. Touch pad programmable controls, patented counter-balanced rack lift and half-racks that can go straight from the fryer into the holding cabinet without re-racking.
With the ability to fry up to 24 lb. of food in 25% less oil per pound, the Henny Penny Velocity Series™ fryer sets a new standard for performance and savings. And no wonder. The Velocity Series is a completely new pressure fryer, designed from the floor up to dramatically lower the cost of high volume frying. How? This fryer automatically filters the oil after every cook cycle in about the time it takes to rack the next load. Oil level is monitored and replenished automatically to extend oil life and improve product quality.
The big savings are in oil. With Velocity, you can get nearly 4 times the oil life and reduce oil discards by 80%! That means lower labor costs and happier employees, too. But it gets better for you and them: The Velocity Series is actually smaller, easier to use, and easier to keep than our legacy high-volume pressure fryer. Plus, brand new touch/tap control, new pressure lock design, lower deck and easy, one-handed lid lift mechanism. Check it out.
