Electric Fryers

Advantages of Electric Fryers

In general, electric frying equipment offers these advantages:

  • The electric heating elements operate at lower temperatures, which saves energy, reduces fat breakdown, and uses less fat. Gas burners can create hot spots in the fryer, which breaks down the oil prematurely.
  • Electric fryers add less heat to the kitchen because they are more energy efficient.
  • Electric units require less maintenance and require less ventilation.
  • Electric units have faster preheat and recovery times than gas units.
  • Electric induction units are now available that use magnetic induction coils to heat the oil. Some electric fryer manufacturers are also using lower watt-density elements to improve efficiency and achieve longer oil life.
