Make Moving to a 30 lb. Fryer Your 2019 Resolution

In 2019, consider extending a New Year’s resolution to your kitchen equipment. If you’re still using a 50-lb. fryer, it may be time to consider evaluating the benefits of a 30-lb. fryer.

Operators can expect three advantages over a 50-lb. fryer:

Oil Savings — A drop in 20 lbs. means 40 percent less oil is needed to cook the same amount of product. Additionally, a 30-lb. fryer, can provide twice the oil life than a 50 lb. unit, meaning greater, hard savings in oil costs. Less oil, more frequent filtration and auto top off combine to create maximum oil extension.

Better and More Consistent Product Quality —With frequent filtration and automatic top-off, the oil “sweet spot” will last longer, creating a more ideal environment for frying food and creating a higher quality product, consistently.  By maintaining a constant level of oil (which is managed by vat sensors) operators will also achieve a higher quality of fried coverage around the product and a more consistent product coming out of the fryer.

Henny Penny’s Evolution Elite open fryers use 40% less oil.

Extended oil life has positive health ramifications for customers, as well. Often with a 50-lb. fryer, operators will try to push their oil life beyond its natural expiration time. In extreme cases, if extended too long, oil can even produce carcinogens and increase food’s cholesterol levels. With a 30-lb. fryer, oil savings will drive pro-active oil management.  Having a team that watches oil quality and reacts to it will translate into better tasting and safer oil.

Ease of Use — By transitioning to a 30-lb fryer, gone are the days of manually opening and closing of multiple drain valves and turning on/off pump motors just to filter the fryer’s oil. Instead, with the push of a button, oil is filtered automatically in just four minutes. This easy processes, mean simpler training for your team and creates less interruptions for regular cooking operations.

SIX FIGURES. ONE STEP. How Saving Oil Can Have a Major Impact on Profits

You need to stay profitable. But there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to do so—with rising food costs, higher wages and evolving trends and demands, virtually any move you make can have an unintended consequence.

If you decide to decrease labor, for example, it would have a negative impact on the quality of service you provide to their customers. If you increase prices to stay even with the market, it could scare customers away — as discretionary income levels haven’t kept pace with the cost of activities like eating out.

The steps left for operators to take include those that will optimize their facility, equipment and processes. One particularly easy-to-control cost is frying oil. After food, it’s likely that oil ranks near the top of most operators’ lists of costs surrounding their frying operations.

Practicing proper oil management is a great start to realizing oil-related savings, but the biggest savings comes with reduced oil volume fryers like Henny Penny’s next-generation Evolution Elite with Smart Touch Filtration™, which uses 40% less oil in the frying vat.

For the average operation, that’s about $5,000 in annual oil costs saved. If your profit margin is 5%, that $5,000 savings has the same profit impact as increasing sales by $100,000, without the extra work!

Many operators may feel uncomfortable making a capital investment for such equipment, but it’s important to consider the ROI. For many establishments, the Evolution Elite will pay for itself in less than three years, then continue to deliver savings every year for the life of the fryer.

By investing in smart, oil-saving technology like the Evolution Elite with Smart Touch Filtration today, operators can realize greater profits for years to come — and it all starts with a few drops of oil.
