Henny Penny first introduced commercial pressure frying to the food service industry more than 50 years ago. Frying under pressure enables lower cooking temperatures for longer oil life, and faster cooking times to meet peak demand. Pressure also seals in food’s natural juices and reduces the amount of oil absorbed into product.
Today, Henny Penny pressure fryers continue to lead the industry in performance, durability, and innovation.
The Henny Penny PFE 500 remains one of the most popular and reliable pressure fryers on the market. Operators can choose either low or high-wattage immersed heating elements that generate fast temperature recovery and welcome energy savings.
Henny Penny pressure fryers have a patented lid lock and color-keyed spindle that make it easy to create a perfect pressure seal every time.
A built-in filtration system filters and returns hot frying oil in minutes. No separate pumps and pans, no handling hot oil.
