Unit performs in demanding environments, reduces energy costs
For foodservice professionals eager to streamline operations, the PowerFry5 is noted for performing in demanding cooking environments while also reducing energy costs and delivering results, according to Vulcan. The PowerFry5 features a SoftStart ignition system that helps heat cold oil gently, thus extending oil life. With flue temperatures of less than 500 degrees with a full load, the fryer significantly reduces ventilation hood and air-conditioning operating costs, and its low idle rate reduces gas consumption and saves energy. The unit is receiving the Kitchen Innovations Award at the National Restaurant Association show in Chicago in May.
