Buffalo, the entry level catering equipment brand supplied by Nisbets, is branching into the induction fryer market as part of a move to broaden its range of energy efficient catering equipment.
By utilising recent advances in induction cooking technology, the tabletop fryer has the potential to provide operators with huge energy and cost savings throughout the year, according to the company.
Rather than using thermal conduction from a flame or electrical heating element, the new Buffalo Induction Fryer harnesses the latest, highly efficient magnetic induction technology to ensure quicker heat up and recovery times.
It claims the appliance is perfect for operations that are looking for a standalone unit, or even those wanting a specialist unit to complement an existing range of fryers, including restaurants, takeaways, kiosks and cafes.
The Buffalo induction fryer, which has a 7.5 litre capacity, only requires power from a standard 3-pin plug. In addition, its design features a drainage tap and has no exposed elements, making it much easier to clean than conventional fryers.
Richard Ebbs, Buffalo brand manager, said induction cooking provides a faster heat up time and also offers a more precise heat source that goes directly to the tank.
“Not only does this give chefs greater control over the cooking process, it also reduces residual heat in the kitchen, making for a safer and more comfortable working environment.”
The product is covered by a two-year parts and labour warranty.
