A Broaster Guide to Pressure Fryers


The role of a pressure fryer in the cooking process depends on the food being prepared, but in most cases, the goal of pressure frying is to ensure that moisture and flavor is sealed in while excess cooking oil is sealed out. It’s an effective method for preparing freshly breaded, and bone-in dishes where it’s essential to keep in the natural juices that enhance flavor.

Though pressure frying was invented sometime towards the end of the 1930s, there have been many advancements in pressure fryer design over the years. Innovative manufacturers like Broaster are leading the way in adding a range of high-tech capabilities that are making pressure frying easier and more energy efficient. Many of their models adjust the cooking time automatically to accommodate for varying sizes and temperatures of loads. Some even double as data-trackers, allowing operators to monitor everything from food production to oil management.

Broaster pressure fryers come in a variety of sizes and finding the right fit for your operation is determined by examining your product mix and projecting how many items are needed per hour. Factor in whether you cook and hold large batches or cook to order. Consider the floorspace under your hood and compare the throughput per square foot of different models.

When choosing between gas and electric models, gas tends to be less expensive than electric when factoring in the long-term operating costs, though both options are always available to fit your location’s needs.

#FAQFryDay: What is the difference between Broasted and fried chicken?

The #ChickenExperts know!
Broasted chicken is battered and cooked in oil as well, but deep fried in a pressure cooker. It instantly locks in all the juices by immersion process cooking all sides of meat and once. One of the main differences between baking and frying is the heat source used to cook the food.

Broasted chicken is a trademark of the Broaster Company because we were the first to the bring pressure-fried, proprietary marinated chicken to the market and trademark the result!  If it sounds familiar, KFC claims a secret recipe for pressure-fried chicken as well, but cannot call it Broasted chicken because they don’t own the trademark.  The Broaster Company does partner with operators to serve Broasted chicken by following our program, using Broaster pressure fryers, and Broaster proprietary ingredients. #BetterBeBroaster #GenuineBroasterChicken #RestaurantIndustry
