FQE30U FilterQuick® Oil-Conserving Electric Fryers with Fully-Automatic Filtration (AF) and Optional Oil Quality Sensor

Specifically designed for ultimate oil conservation and filtering ease

Frymaster’s FQE30U electric fryers are the ultimate oil-conserving, high-performance fryers, available in 2-5 frypot battery models. As operators are pressured to do more with less, the FQE30U electric fryers help improve profit margins with labor and energy-saving features, contribute to green and sustainability initiatives, safeguard workers, and move toward healthier eating.

The open stainless steel frypot is easy to clean. These fryers reduce operating costs by using less oil, 30-lbs versus 50-lbs. Oil life is maximized with auto top-off (ATO) because the smaller frypot maintains a favorable ratio of fresh to used oil. Less oil to fill and longer times between fills saves operators well over 40% on their oil costs. The optional integrated Oil Quality Sensor monitors the health of the oil, indicating with great precision the true point that oil needs to be discarded. This ensures high food quality and optimal oil life. Monitoring complexity is reduced to a push of a button.

This savings helps meet consumer demand for healthier food choices and regulatory mandates to use trans fat-free oils by offsetting the higher cost of these oils. With ASTM ratings that exceed ENERGY STAR® standards for efficiency, FQE30U electric fryers qualify for energy-saving rebates. The COOL Mode feature reduces the temperature when the fryer is not in use and saves energy.

The easy-to-use, closed cabinet fully-automatic filtration (AF) system encourages more frequent filtering, which preserves oil life and ensures consistent, great-tasting food. The AF is operated with Fingertip ease from the front of the fryer. No doors to open.

Only one frypot filters at a time. Other frypots are held in queue, reducing risk of oil spills and worker injury.

Flexible filter reminders can be set by a global or an individual product count. The percentage of cooks remaining before a filter prompting can be checked at any time with a simple push of the filter button.
