Commercial countertop fryers are a small but mighty and economical solution for operators looking to meet fried food demand from a small space. Countertop fryers are essentially small deep fryers take up a tiny room in your commercial kitchen. If you have a small establishment that gets a moderate number of orders for fried dishes, countertop fryers can get the job done.
Serve hungry customers with french fries, onion rings, and other delicious fried food offerings from your counter with countertop fryers. These units feature single or dual tanks usually with one (1) large fry basket or two (2) single fry baskets for each vat. Split-pot units with two (2) separate tanks for cooking eliminate the problem of flavor transfer, so you can cook at least two different types of food at the same time.
Despite the small size, countertop deep fryers have a heavy-duty stainless steel construction to stand up to the rigors of daily use in the busiest of kitchens. Capacities are determined by the maximum volume of cooking oil, ranging from as small as 2 pounds and 30 lbs on the larger side. Most countertop fryers are designed to be easy to clean--from the stainless steel exterior to the removable components.
Open pot designs with heating elements on the tanks’ exterior, a popular choice for preparing fries, provide more frying space and easier cleaning. Tube type units carry gas through pipes located inside the pot, which serve as the heat source. Shallow square flat bottom fryers are preferable for more delicate items, like fish.
Most commercial units you'll find are electric fryers although there are some gas fryers as well. Our selection of countertop fryers comes from some well-known names in the foodservice industry namely Lang Manufacturing, Pitco, Garland US Range, Star, Vulcan, and Wells.
