The Evolution Elite Cooking better food with less oil—that’s the inspiration behind the innovative Evolution Elite® open fryer from Henny Penny. This revolutionary family of reduced oil capacity fryers uses 40% less oil than regular open fryers and lets you filter any vat any time at the touch of a button. Fast recovery, automatic oil top-off and easy-to-use controls mean you’re saving time, energy and labor with every load. The Henny Penny Evolution Elite isn’t just an advanced fryer… it raises frying to a whole new order of quality, simplicity and cost management. FEATURES A smaller fry vat requires 40% less oil to fill than a standard 50 lb fryer, while maintaining the overall cooking capacity. The Oil Guardian™ system monitors oil levels and automatically replenishes oil from a reservoir inside the fryer cabinet, eliminating manual add-backs and frequent oil disposal. Smart Touch Filtration™ improves oil savings, product quality and employee productivity by filtering individual vats at the touch of a button, while allowing other vats to cook uninterrupted. Filter system drains oil, rinses away crumbs and returns hot filtered oil to the vat in less than four minutes! No handles, valves or anything else to pull, open or close. iControl™ provides a simple, intuitive interface that lets you store 40 cook programs and offers a host of features, like idle and melt modes, load compensation, filter tracking, multiple language settings, USB support, and more.
