Leicestershire catering equipment importer Euro Catering has worked with US manufacturer, ANETS, to create a fryer specifically suited to the demands of the UK chef and outdoor and event caterer.
The ANETS SLG50 is a 20-litre, twin-basket gas fryer, with a small footprint that suits the typical amount of space available to caterers working in fast food outlets and takeaways, pubs, ethnic eateries and outdoor catering environments.
The company claims it is the only known fryer available in the UK that has a five-year tank warranty, delivering a unique selling point to the appliance.
The 35kw three-burner fryer can turn out 80lbs of fries per hour despite measuring just 400mm in width and 700mm in depth.
The SLG50 has elliptical-shaped, tapered heat tubes, which are designed to increase the surface area for heat transfer purposes by 14%, speeding up the heat recovery time of the fryer.
Euro Catering’s director, Tim Charlton, said that this reduces fuel costs and means the food does not soak up oil because of poor heat recovery after submersion.
“The ANETS SLG50 is a star product in our portfolio this year, having been especially designed to suit the UK market and being unique in the fact that it has a five-year tank warranty. With this, its two-year warranty for other parts, a one-year labour warranty and many user-friendly features, we expect orders to go flying out of the door.”
The company hopes a propane model of this fryer will also be hugely popular with event and food wagon caterers, as it will ensure fast food turnaround. Its fully lined door keeps the outer door at a cooler temperature, preventing chefs being burned when operating in confined spaces.
Oil life is extended through in-built filtration, whilst an extra-large drain manifold makes the fryer faster to drain during oil changes, as well as harder to clog.
