1 Automatic Fryer = 1,200 Escalopes an Hour

Things need to move quickly in large canteens, cafeterias and military barracks at lunch time. Hundreds of hungry employees, students and soldiers all want escalopes, meat patties and fried sausage at the same time. These are challenges for any professional kitchen. The solution: automatic fryers. For more than twenty years now, Küppersbusch Großküchentechnik in Gelsenkirchen has been producing automatic fryers with which large quantities of fried food can be produced by only one person in no time at all.

"For example, an EBA 120 cooks 2,000 small fried sausages, 1,500 rösties (fried grated potato) or 1,500 mincemeat patties in one hour, and it replaces up to five standard tilting frying pans. It also saves on space and can be operated by one person. "This is efficiency at its best," says Managing Director Marc-Oliver Schneider, "And the average useful life span of our automatic fryers is more than 20 years."

The Technology
Fried food is cooked on two levels, each with two adjustable heating zones with separate electronic controls. "This is a guarantee of consistently cooked food and authentic taste experiences," says Marc-Oliver Schneider. A robust system with push bars made of special steel moves the fried food across the heating zones. Escalopes, meat patties and co. are turned over automatically. A system to separate frying sediments ensures that the frying fat is clean. Fried remains are removed, frying quality and taste are maintained, and fat can be used longer, which in turn reduces costs," says Marc-Oliver Schneider. Once food is ready, it can be guided through drainage extensions into heated trolleys.

The EBA 120 is cleaned by simply tilting it into any of the positions with a motor-operated mechanism. The automatic fryer is operated with a robust, clear membrane control panel located behind a protective cover.
