Burkett Introduces Perfect Fry Ventless Fryers!

perfect fryAt Burkett Restaurant Equipment, we are committed to bringing our customers the latest and most innovative restaurant equipment and supplies. Cue the addition of Perfect Fry fryers.

Perfect Fry is a leading supplier to the foodservice industry with innovative and simple to operate countertop deep-frying solutions. As the recipient of the National Restaurant Association’s Kitchen Innovations award, PFA’s Rapidfry technology is the first odorless, ventless, and automated counter-top deep-frying system with robotic entry and delivery for your food products.

So what makes Perfect Fry Fryers the best? Let us count the ways:

#1 No Vents or Hoods Required
Low cost installation! Perfect Fry is made for locations that do not allow for the installation of commercial fixed vents, air exchange, filters or fire suppression systems. With built-in filtration and state of the art fire suppression, Perfect Fry is ideal for open mall kiosks, temporary or seasonal locations, portable kitchens, catering, or any limited-space locations.

#2 Odorless
Perfect Fry has designed their own air filtration system to remove grease particulates from the exhausted air. Made in the same factory as their fryers, the HEPA style filters last three months under normal use conditions.

#3 Small Footprint
Perfect Fry fryers install on your countertop. Their high-volume output means that foodservice businesses with limited space can now offer a variety of fried foods that have been missing from menus due to restricted space. The total space is less than a single conventional fryer or side-loading counter-top fryer.

#4 Commercial Volume Output
Fully automated fryers can fry up to 3 lbs. of food in each load. Wait it gets better. The Perfect fryer will cook 30 loads in an hour. At 3 lbs per load, with an automated load system the PFA can produce 90 POUNDS OF FRIES PER HOUR.

#5 Easy Maintenance

Perfect Fry fryers require a daily cleaning (wipe down, and general clean) and a weekly oil change. The self-contained oil drainage kit allows you to empty oil even when it is hot. All of the stainless steel components can be removed from the fryer chassis and washed in a dishwasher or sink. Finally, air filters should be changed every 3 months under similar usage; this can be done in under a minute.

#6 Safety
Foodservice owner/operators put a priority on the safety of employees; with Perfect Fry’s fully automated PFA fryer operators won’t come in contact with hot oil. Ingredients are placed into the robotic loading tray. The cooking area of the fryer is enclosed and self-contained. Food then empties safely into the tray placed in the unloading area. All key functions of the machine are monitored electronically and indicated on our bright LCD display – the self-diagnostic ability of the Perfect Fry machines reduces guessing and downtime.

#7 Preset Cooking
Perfect Fry allows you to customize up to 9 presets. Put an entire menu into your fryer’s program. When the preset cooking cycle is completed, the food will unload automatically. Food stays warm with an optional ceramic heat lamp.

Commercial Fryer Maintenance

Who doesn’t love fried food! French fries, onion rings, chicken wings, donuts and chicken breast are  a few popular dishes. This passion for fried food means that just about every food service business has a well-used Commercial Fryer in the kitchen. So, what can you do to make sure your Fryer continues to produce delicious food that will keep your customers coming in? Maintain it of course! Here are some simple things that you can do to extend your Fryer’s life.

Clean It! Once again, it’s amazing how this simple step is often overlooked. The implications of not regularly cleaning Fryer can destroy not only your equipment, but it can lead to your business burning to the ground. Clean your equipment during the day and then thoroughly cleaned it at the end of each day.

    1. Never clean during the cooking process or when they frypot is filled with hot oil or shortening. Unplug the machine and wait until the oil and the machine are cool before cleaning.
    2. Use a commercial grade cleaner that will effectively clean and sanitize contact surfaces.
    3. Never use cleaners, steel wool, or other abrasive on stainless steel.
    4. Make sure to thoroughly clean the machine. Accessories like a Fryer Cleanout Rod and Fryer Brush will make sure that even the hardest to reach places are cleaned.

Regularly Filter the Oil! Filter daily to maintain the freshest fried foods possible.

Change the Oil! Once a week drain the oil and clean the frypot. If under heavy use, the cooking oil should be changed throughout the day.

Properly Dispose of Cooking Oil: Did you know that pouring even 1 gallon of oil down the drain can contaminate 1 million gallons of water and will even block your pipes? Do the environment a favor and dispose of oil the correct way. When cool, put the oil in a sealed, non-recyclable and unbreakable container (like a coffee can) and dispose of in the trash. If you have a garden, used cooking oil can be composted.

Replace Baskets Damaged baskets may not properly submerge in the oil. When baskets get dinged, broken or are excessively greased, purchase new baskets to ensure even frying. This Gold Medal basket is one of our favorites and is a universal size.

Schedule Regular Service Inspection A Factory-Authorized Service Technician should inspect your Fryer annually for:

  1. Excessive oil build-up inside and out, front and rear of the machine.
  2. Obstruction in the flue opening
  3. Verify burners and components are in good condition and functioning properly.
  4. Ensure temperature and high-limit properties are properly functioning, connected and tightened.
  5. Verify all safety features are present and properly functioning.
  6. Verify frypot is in good condition, free of leaks, and the fry pot insulation is in serviceable condition.
  7. Verify wiring harnesses and connections are tight and in good condition.
  8. Verify that the component box components are in good condition and free from oil and debris build up.
