December 13, 2011 – Vulcan, the leading provider of commercial cooking equipment, sets a new industry standard for fryers with the launch of its PowerFry™ VK Series Fryers.  The PowerFry redefines the fryer by using Vulcan’s revolutionary FivePass™ heat transfer technology.  This maximizes uniform heat transfer to the oil, resulting in faster recovery and cook times.

Vulcan’s simple yet innovative design cooks up to 25% faster producing more products in less time.  Vulcan’s ENERGY STAR® qualified PowerFry VK Fryers are the most energy efficient gas fryers available, placing Vulcan in an “elite class” of its own.  While enjoying increased productivity, the PowerFry will save up to $1,100 in energy use per year.

Fully designed and executed with end users in mind, the PowerFry VK Series Fryer is easy to operate and clean.   Precise results are delivered consistently from batch to batch.

Additional benefits and features of Vulcan’s PowerFry include:

  • Fast, Precise Production:  Precise cooking with solid state analog, solid state digital, or programmable computer controls.
  • Low Cost of Operation:  A SoftStart™ ignition system gently heats cold oil prolonging oil life while saving energy through low idle rates. Lower flue temperatures reduce kitchen A/C costs.
  • Long Term Durability:  All stainless steel construction, reliable sealed combustion technology and 10-year limited tank warranty.
  • Available with KleenScreen PLUS®: The easiest filtration system to use, with the most effective filtering technology.

“The PowerFry VK Series is an exciting launch for Vulcan, as our team completely redesigned how a fryer works.  We believe PowerFry’s fast cooking and unsurpassed energy efficiency will revolutionize the fryer industry and fulfill a real industry need, especially for the fast food and fast casual segments where speed of service is so important,” said Paul Forrest, General Manager, Vulcan Fryers.
