F5 (The novelty)

The new Fryer from Henny Penny: The F5

Here is the newest innovation from Henny Penny the F5 open fryer, designed to help foodservice operators improve their frying practices through a simple, intuitive touchscreen interface and ultra-efficient operation.

The F5 features a custom-built operating system created to make frying easier. The icon and picture-based controls and built-in help guides simplify daily operation and routine maintenance — reducing training up to 50 percent.

The F5’s ultra-efficient system is engineered to help manage oil. The ENERGY STAR®-rated 30-lb. platform offers Simple-Touch 3-Minute Express Filtration. Faster filtration means better compliance, saving operators an average of $3,000 to $5,000 in annual oil costs. The F5 also prolongs the oil’s “sweet spot,” resulting in better food quality.

From the rigorously tested 4mm-thick glass screen and powerful filter pump system designed to prevent clogging and improve speed, the F5 is built to withstand the demands of a commercial kitchen.

“We engineered the F5 to simplify every aspect of frying including training, cleaning and maintenance, and consistent food quality,” said Matt Greear, Henny Penny Senior Product Manager. “By creating efficiencies and improving oil management, the F5 will have lasting benefits for our customers, both financially and in the quality of the food they serve their guests.”

Advantages of Two-sided Grilling

What are the advantages of two-sided grilling? The main edge the Taylor line of grills has over the competition is the ability to cook from two sides!

Decreased Cook Time

Two-sided or “clamshell” grills cook from both sides reducing cook times by 40-60% when compared to a flat top grill.

Complete Consistency

Another advantage of two-sided grilling is the consistency of product. Two-sided grills transfer heat evenly across the entire cooking surface to ensure consistency. The platen also applies exact pressure, searing the menu item on both sides at once, every single cook cycle. The result? less shrink and better yield on your product!

Innovative Efficiency

Two-sided grills can also save time and money by eliminating production steps! Every cooking process involves multiple steps including seasoning, placement, positioning, forming (pressing) with additional steps like flipping, adding toppings, etc. Two-sided grills eliminate some processes such as the need to flip a product resulting in increased profitability and productivity for the operator. Comparatively, cooking on a flat top requires constant attention to ensure the product is properly cooked

Two-sided Grilling – A QSR Staple

Two-sided cooking has been a staple of the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) Market for many years with wide spread success. With some of the biggest names in QSR’s relying on Taylor Grills to ensure complete consistency and efficiency, we’re willing to bet you’ve had something cooked on a Taylor Grill before. However, QSR’s aren’t the only application for this equipment, recent trends in food service show a growing demand for fresh, made-to-order menu items forcing other markets like the convenience store segment to adapt to changing consumer demands. With the ability to cook much more than just the perfect burger, consider adding a two-sided grill to your operation to expand your product offering and capitalize on the increasing demand for quality food items, quickly and consistently.
