Healthy, safe and sustainable frying

This emerging technology, of 100% Spanish creation, allows frying to take place in premises without a smoke extraction system. Its application allows the development of a more competitive market without environmental emissions, which is more sustainable, healthier and more energy efficient. According to the latest controls carried out by accredited external companies (ENAC), the Fast Chef Elite fryer which incorporates this technology emits just 0.05% of the smells produced by a traditional fryer and which are perceived by human beings, and is more efficient than a traditional frying solution with exhaust hood.

By cooking food with a fryer such as Fast Chef Elite that incorporates ecofry technology, frying times are reduced by 27% and oil consumption by 37%. Not only does this imply an improvement in performance of the product, but also a lower fat content absorbed by the food, resulting in healthier and higher-quality frying. This is a highly energy-efficient technology with certified Savings of 24% electrical operation costs compared to traditional frying equipment.
