Equipment Snapshot: Providing restaurants and food service operations with both productivity and durability, Vulcan introduces the 35-pound, ENERGY STAR certified VEG Series. It’s a value-priced fryer that truly checks all the boxes.
Rated at 70,000 BTU/hr., the VEG fryer has a production capacity of 56.8 lbs./hr. and a 50 percent cooking efficiency rating. Compared to a standard economy fryer, the VEG cooks 10 lbs. more per hour and reduces operational costs. The VEG meets criteria to be ENERGY STAR certified, making it eligible for rebates at time of purchase in many states (with some as high as $1,900), for an immediate payback on the unit.
“With a large demand from dealers and end users, particularly in high rebate states, we’ve been eager to release the Vulcan VEG gas fryer,” said Paul Forrest, Vulcan’s director of sales and marketing for fryers, griddles, and charbroilers. “Not only does it beat the standard economy fryer production rate by 10 pounds per hour, it’s ENERGY STAR certified, filling a gap for our customers in need of an efficient and value-priced fryer.
The VEG fryer is ideal for cooking a variety of menu items, including chicken wings, frozen appetizers and French fries. With a stainless-steel fry tank and door, the VEG is easy to clean and will stand up to the daily wear and tear of the toughest kitchen environments. Standard millivolt controls eliminate the need for an electrical hook-up, resulting in additional flexibility for fryer placement under the hood.
As a bonus, the VEG comes with a new equipment checkout by Hobart Service free of charge. That means a Vulcan product expert will ensure that the fryer was installed correctly and will function properly, achieving greater piece of mind for the kitchen operator.
