Henny Penny Pressure Fryers


Pressure Fryers


Cook faster at lower temperatures and produce healthier, better-tasting fried foods, all while reducing oil consumption, labor costs and safety concerns. That’s the latest generation of PFE 500/PFG 600 pressure fryer from Henny Penny—the company that introduced the world’s first commercial pressure fryer more than 50 years ago.

Patented color keyed spindle and lid lock make it easy to create the perfect pressure seal every time. Frying management controls, rectangular fry pot with 7-year warranty, and energy efficient heat transfer that generates the industry’s lowest average exhaust temperatures. You can’t beat Henny Penny reliability… or the ROI from serving load after load of great-tasting pressure fried chicken and more!

With the ability to fry up to 24 lb of food in 25% less oil per pound, the Henny Penny Velocity Series™ fryer sets a new standard for performance and savings. And no wonder. The Velocity Series is a completely new pressure fryer, designed from the floor up to dramatically lower the cost of high volume frying. How? This fryer automatically filters the oil after every cook cycle in about the time it takes to rack the next load. Oil level is monitored and replenished automatically to extend oil life and improve product quality.

The big savings are in oil. With Velocity, you can get nearly 4 times the oil life and reduce oil discards by 80%!  That means lower labor costs and happier employees, too. But it gets better for you and them: The Velocity Series is actually smaller, easier to use, and easier to keep than our legacy high-volume pressure fryer. Plus, brand new touch/tap control, new pressure lock design, lower deck and easy, one-handed lid lift mechanism. Check it out.
