FAQs: Commercial Pressure Fryers

Pressure fryers use pressure to increase the boiling point of water from 212°F to 240°F. As a result, food placed in a commercial pressure fryer loses less moisture to evaporation during cooking. This makes commercial pressure fryers ideal for cooking proteins like chicken, because the food retains its juicy flavor without being infused with as much unhealthy oil. In addition, pressure frying enables lower oil temperatures than open frying, extending the life of your oil.

A commercial pressure fryer offers many benefits, including: 

  • Produces a juicier, healthier product
  • Shortens cook times
  • Extends the life of your oil

Pressure fryers raise the boiling point of water, allowing foods to retain moisture and lock in the essential flavors of foods like fried chicken and other proteins, while locking out oil — making the food healthier than open fryers. Pressure frying also creates faster cook times and creates conditions for cleaner oil that lasts longer.

Open fryers, on the other hand, produce a crispier finish that can be ideal for chicken and non-proteins like french fries, onion rings, and mozzarella sticks. Open fryers can also have split vats to cook smaller batches of different foods at the same time.

There are a wide variety of commercial pressure fryers to choose from to fit your unique needs. It all comes down to selecting the equipment that aligns with your production needs. Product features and energy source, whether electric or gas, can also factor into which type of commercial pressure fryer is best for you.
