Pitco has up to 30% more heat transfer area compared to Brand “X”. By heating oil from the bottom up, Brand X has a smaller, less dispersed heat transfer area. Pitco’s cool zone is larger; the tube fired design creates a substantially larger cool zone for trapping particles thus prolonging oil life and reducing taste transfer.
Bottom-fired fryer with a cool zone limited in size by the shape of the tank design and burner placement continuous bottom firing causes heat to conduct to tank bottom thus causing loss of cool zone. Reduced Cleaning – Pitcos larger cool zone reduces the area needed for cleaning. There is less need to clean the tank and tube sides because they are not heated and particles are much less likely to adhere and carbonize.
Take one look and you’ll see Pitco Fryers are designed for convenience as well as efficiency. They are easy to use, to clean, to adjust, and to maintain. We were the first to incorporate “cool zones” to minimize taste transfer and maximize shortening life. We were the first to offer built-in filtering and under cabinet, space saving filters.
The innovation continues today. Pitco Frialator now offers the SolsticeTM Series — a selection of fryers that operate cooler and smarter for maximum efficiency.
From efficiency of our tube-fired design to the shortening extension capabilities of our “cool zones,” from our commitment to customer satisfaction to our record of reliability, Pitco has proven, again and again, to be the leader in the fryer industry.
