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 the product.
Today, Henny Penny pressure fryers continue to lead the industry in performance, durability, and innovation.
The Henny Penny PFE 591 cooks up to 8 head of freshly breaded bone-in chicken in a single load. For higher volume operations, that can mean significant savings in time, labor, frying oil, energy, and maintenance compared to an equivalent capacity of smaller pressure fryers from other manufacturers.
Powerful, high-efficiency immersed heating elements generate fast temperature recovery without sacrificing energy savings. Large loads are cooked evenly and handled easily with the patented counterbalance lift system.
Henny Penny pressure fryers have a built-in filtration system that filters and returns hot frying oil in minutes.
No separate pumps and pans, no handling hot oil. The Computron™ 8000 control features automatic, programmable operation, as well as energy-saving, filtration, and cook management functions.
