Universal Foodservice Equipment has announced the release of Baron’s new range of EVO deep fryers, which are available in both gas and electric versions.
The fryers include a large touchscreen which allows users to store recipes and preset temperatures and times, with Universal claiming that the new technology “brings numerous benefits and provides even more precise control over the cooking process”.
Universal said: “The EVO computerised deep fat fryers incorporate the most up to date frying technology and offer a host of user-friendly functions from touchscreen controls and auto basket lift through to an oil circulation and filtering Pump.”
The fryers come equipped with management software that regulates oil temperature and modulates the power delivered according to workload, while there are 2 automatic basket lifts which are called into action once a recipe is completed in order to guarantee uniform frying performance.
The fryers are also relatively quick and easy to clean thanks to an automatic filtering system and user-friendly instructions on the display screen
The heating elements of the devices also feature innovation: the electric version (22 kW for 22 l tank capacity) introduces new elements whose shape is specifically designed to optimise and increase performance, while the gas version (25 kW for 23 l tank capacity) offers automatic ignition of the main burners using the electronic flame controller.
The range consists of four electrically-powered models and four gas-powered models, each available in four versions: Standard version with electronic touchscreen; Version with programmable basket lift and electronic touchscreen; Version with automatic oil filtering system and electronic touchscreen; Full version with basket lift, automatic oil filtering system and electronic touchscreen.
The product launch comes as Universal Foodservice Equipment announced a change of headquarters, leaving its base in Caterham town centre which has been its home for the past 20 years.
The firm will be moving to a new location in Bletchingly, Surrey, which is expected to be completed by the end of the month.
