Your menu’s fried foods may not be the high point of your culinary savvy, but they are a significant slice of your business. Golden fries, delectable onion blossoms, succulent cheese sticks - these simple sides can be a great complement to your finer fare. Because they are simple, fryers are regularly taken for granted and enjoy little innovation. The VK Powerfry Series is one of the few exceptions. Vulcan has engineered these marvels to decrease expense while increasing production.
The heart of the Vulcan 1VK45A is its innovative FivePass heat transfer system. With most fryers, the heated air from combustion goes through the oil once and is lost out the flue. By adding turns in the tubing, Vulcan multiplied the number of passes to five, increasing oil heat times by 25% and speeding up recovery and cook times. Moreover, because it harnesses the energy more effectively, it uses less gas. The Energy Star certified 1VK45A performs with an efficient 70,000 BTU/hr. heat input and idles at an energy-sipping 4,251 BTU/hr. By using fuel more efficiently, this fryer ensures extra money in your pocket.
Not only does the 1VK45A save on gas, but its SoftStart ignition system conserves oil as well. Heat causes oil to break down. By distributing energy more effectively and ramping gently, Vulcan achieves speed with less intense heat - extending the life of your oil. When you consider that oil is a fryer’s biggest expense, this feature alone can mean thousands in savings.
Don’t let expressions like “efficient” and “gentle” fool you. This fryer is a beast at production. Customers have reported seeing a 50% increase in production with the VK Powerfry. Buying a 1VK45A is not just a smart move from a savings standpoint; this fryer will keep you in the game on your busiest nights.
If you are shopping for an efficient and productive fryer, you should consider the Vulcan 1VK45A. Your savings will pay you back.
