Find the Perfect Fryer — Introducing the Pitco Fryer Selector

Because fried foods are popular, foodservice operations using the right tools have an advantage when creating quality, efficiency, and profitability. From the right fryer size to avoiding downtime, the difference could be thousands of dollars a week between the right fryer and the wrong one.

Fortunately, selecting the right commercial fryer has never been easier. With a comprehensive fryer selection tool, operators can compare models and pick the unit that works best in their establishments. From diners to upscale restaurants, each type of operation has different needs, and Pitco can deliver the right solution.

How Commercial Fryers Drive Bottom-Line Success

Demand for fried foods has risen in recent years due in part to customers wanting delicious comfort food in the wake of economic uncertainty and a worldwide pandemic. Now, even as health protocols go back to normal, consumers still want to enjoy comfort foods, which is why they’re called comfort foods. They’re popular no matter what.

To capitalize on our love of comfort foods, it’s important to have the right systems, processes, and equipment in place to deliver. And since we all know many comfort foods are fried, having the right¬†commercial fryer can be one of the best profit drivers. Some of these reasons include:

Fast Cooking Speeds

Compared to other cooking methods, frying can deliver center-of-the-plate foods and side dishes in minutes, if not less. Yes, fried food is tasty, but it’s also generally efficient to prepare.


Gone are the days when fryers were only used for French fries and tater tots. Now, many main courses can go into the fryer, even some gourmet options (i.e., soft-shell crab). So, restaurants can expand their menu options without needing extra infrastructure.


Modern fryers with smart sensors can filter and exchange oil automatically. This process extends the life of the oil significantly, ensuring a higher profit margin for each batch.

Why Choosing the Right Fryer Matters

Although fryers are relatively simple machines, they can come with various features and elements to make or break a business’ bottom line. So, having access to a comprehensive fryer selector tool enables operators to make the best decision for their restaurant. Some considerations include size, output, single vs. double fryers, and smart sensor technology. By weighing each feature individually, operators can get a clearer picture of what a fryer can do and whether it can hold up to the demands of the kitchen.

How the Pitco Fryer Product Selector Makes Selection a Breeze

There are so many factors to be considered when purchasing a new commercial fryer. Electric or gas? What is your volume? What will be cooked inside each fryer?
