E4 Electric Fryers RE17TC, RE17-2TC

Specifically designed for industry-leading energy efficiency

Frymaster’s proprietary self-standing, swing-up elements and precise controls ensure industry-leading energy efficiency with ASTM ratings greater than 83%, far exceeding ENERGY STAR® qualification guidelines and qualify these fryers for energy-saving rebates.

The thermostat, mounted on the elements, ensures precise temperature readings. The thermostat system minimizes temperature overshoot maximizing oil life. It also compensates for variations in cooking loads, consistently producing high-quality food.

The large cold zone and forward sloping bottom help collect and remove sediment from the frypot to safeguard oil quality and support routine cleaning. A rear flush feature moves sediment to the front drain valve for easy and thorough removal.

The split frypot RE fryers have all of the features of the full pot model but give the operator half-pot frying options.

These models will accommodate additional accessories including CM3.5 controller (standard on TC models) and automatic basket lifts. The fryer cabinet can include an additional spreader cabinet with an optional heat lamp and holding station. The holding stations can use either cafeteria-style pan or scoop-type pan. The heat lamp and pans are integrated into the cabinet, making a complete warming station.

Built-in filtration is available for single frypot fryers (except TC models) and is also available on single frypot fryers including a spreader cabinet and all multiple frypot fryers. Up to six fryers can be batteried to the right side of the FootPrint PRO filter.

The TC model electric fryers have advanced electronic switching devices which pulse the amount of energy required to the electric elements in much smaller increments than traditional on/off electrical contactors or gas controls.  The result:  greater reliability and more precise temperature control.  These models also have an insulated frypot which can reduce standby energy consumption by an additional 10%, and they come standard with the CM3.5 controller which ensures pinpoint accuracy of oil temperature and adjusts cooking time for consistent high-quality production.
