Henny Penny Open Fryers


Open Fryers


For more than 50 years, Henny Penny has been leading the way in fryer innovation. Take, for instance, our built-in oil filtration systems that come standard on every open fryer. This automatic system helps extend oil life and reduces the effort required to keep your fryers functioning.

Faster temperature recovery is also a hallmark of Henny Penny open fryers, with third-party testing confirming our designs help save energy and keep things running efficiently.

Open frying  submerges food in an open vat of hot oil, a cooking method commonly used for items that should be  crispy  when done — like fries, for example. Kitchens utilize open fryers instead of pressure fryers for a variety of menu items, including foods that float while cooking.

Below are the different Henny Penny Open Fryer Series, each fryer is unique and can be customized, so please let one us know if you have any questions or would like to schedule a live demonstration.
