The Evolution Elite

Doing more with less: that’s the inspiration behind the innovative Evolution Elite series from Henny Penny. This revolutionary family of reduced oil capacity open fryers uses 40% less oil than regular open fryers — and with fast filtration, automatic oil top-off and a set of easy-to-use controls, you’re saving time, energy and money with every load.

Available in gas and electric models, the Evolution Elite helps you manage costs and reduce consumption while ensuring consistent flavor and keeping customers satisfied — every order, every day.

  • A smaller fry vat allows for significant savings by requiring 40% less oil than a standard 50 lb. fryer, while maintaining the overall cooking capacity.
  • The Oil Guardian™ system monitors oil levels and automatically replenishes oil from a reservoir inside the fryer cabinet, eliminating manual add-backs and frequent oil disposal.
  • Smart Touch Filtration™ improves oil savings, product quality and employee productivity by filtering individual vats at the touch of a button, while allowing other vats to cook uninterrupted.
  • Filter system drains oil, rinses away crumbs and returns hot filtered oil to the vat in less than four minutes! No handles, valves or anything else to pull, open or close.
  • iControl™ ensures accurate, consistent cook times and great-tasting food with its 40 stored programs, load compensation, and idle/melt/cleanout modes. This easy-to-use system also features adjustable language settings and USB support.
  • ENERGY STAR® compliant with rapid temperature recovery.
  • Heavy-duty stainless steel vats come with a 7-year warranty.
  • High-limit temperature protection.
  • Electric models have hinged elements that lift up for quick and easy vat cleaning.
