This Pitco Frialator tube-fired gas fryer is compatible with propane gas and can provide your foodservice operation with a medium-to-high-volume output of fried foods. Able to hold between 40 and 45 pounds of oil, the Pitco 40S can cook up to 72 pounds of fries per hour. The deep cool zone contains at least 20 percent of the tank's total oil and prevents sediment from burning, which makes this fryer perfect for heavily-breaded items like mozzarella sticks and chicken tenders. This can help extend the life and quality of your oil.
This commercial fryer can maintain any selected temperature between 200 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and has a high temperature limit that shuts off the gas if the unit exceeds 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Although the standing pilot light provides an on-demand flame, the gas flow will also shut off if the flame goes out. The built-in heat deflector directs the heat to the hood vent to help maintain a comfortable temperature in the surrounding kitchen.
The Pitco 40S comes standard with everything you need to begin using and maintaining your fryer, including two nickel-plated fry baskets and a tube rack, a 11⁄4-inch front-located drain valve and drain extension, and a clean-out rod.
