Just In: Imperial IFS-25 half-size gas fryer

Yes, this literally came in not too long ago. We'll have a better pic

Yes, this literally came in not too long ago. We’ll have a better pic later on.

Usually, fryers are gigantic in nature. When you own a restaurant, they’re usually either the biggest or one of the biggest appliances you’ll have in your kitchen. But have you ever seen a fryer this small? We’re not talking about some countertop unit you can buy in a Bed, Bath, and Beyond–no today, we’re talking about the Imperial IFS-25 half-size gas fryer.

BTU, or British Thermal Unit, should be as commonly-known as a watt or horsepower. But weirdly, it isn’t. Continue reading

What is the common food-grade Stainless Steel?

As there are many different kinds of cars and a seemingly infinite amount of computers, there are different kinds of stainless steel. Most people usually assume stainless steel is just what it is, like there would be just iron and aluminum. But especially with restaurant equipment, stainless steel is not just something to be taken for granted–especially not when people’s food is on the line. Continue reading

This is a display oven meant to be the centerpiece for the awesome backyard parties, although restaurants that cook a lot of pizza or flatbread use these as well. For those not in the know, Renato is one of the biggest names in brick ovens and this model is one of their best. You’ve probably seen Guy Fieri using it on many occasions. Continue reading

Hobart Commercial Dishwasher For Sale

dishwasherIf you’re like most of the people we meet at One Fat Frog, you love to cook, but you hate doing dishes. That’s why the dishwasher is one of the greatest inventions in history. In fact, I think we should start using the phrase “greatest thing since the dishwasher” rather than “greatest thing since sliced bread.” While a dishwasher makes things a lot more pleasant at home, it’s even more important for your restaurant. Back in the day, when everything had to be washed by hand, that meant a lot of time wasted on cleanup and a lot of money wasted on payroll for dishwashers. Though you will never completely eliminate hand dishwashing, One Fat Frog has one of the top models in commercial dishwashers that can make your restaurant’s cleanup much more effective and efficient. Continue reading

We’re selling it at a price ridiculously below value. Seriously, if you come in, look at this conveyor oven and ask the salesperson how much we’re charging, you’ll probably laugh and assume it’s a joke. I would print the price here but again, you would think we’re pranking you. We’re not. We wouldn’t do that. Actually, we might, because we love practical jokes, but we’re not in this case.

Master Bilt Ice Cream Dipping Case for Sale

Master_Bilt_Dipping_CaseWhen I was a kid, one of the great pleasures in life was getting to go to the local ice cream shop, where I could walk down the dipping case, checking out the plethora of flavor options, and then decide what I wanted to eat. It was usually some combination that wasn’t standard – a scoop of this, a scoop of that. Actually, I shouldn’t say “when I was a kid,” because it’s still one of my life’s greatest pleasures. Maybe I need a more pleasurable life. Continue reading

Groen Tilt Kettle for Sale

IMG_0585See this beauty? This is a Groen tilt kettle. It’s a used steam kettle and one of the best in the industry. You might be thinking should I buy a tilt kettle? If so, the answer is yes. Right now you might be thinking but why should I? That answer is a little more in depth, but One Fat Frog is here to educate you.

First of all, anything you normally cook in a stock pot you can cook in one of these tilt kettles. If you cook it in the kettle, though, your food will cook better, taste better, and your cooking will be more efficient. Your range burners only heat the bottom of a stock pot, whereas with this tilt kettle, the steam heats the entire inside of the kettle. That means your food is getting heated more evenly and it also means your food will cook faster, which will save you money.

When cooking with a Groen tilt kettle, you can also be more efficient in terms of manpower. A large tilt kettle will hold more than most stock pots and more importantly, they don’t need the same attention while the food is cooking. That means no cooks standing around a pot, checking it and stirring it. Instead, the cooks can put the food in the tilt kettle, set it, and forget it. That frees up the cooks to do other things, making your kitchen more efficient. In some cases, it could mean that your kitchen can operate with fewer cooks, making your payroll cheaper.

Another advantage of one of these tilt kettles is that it will save you on cleanup. You can combine food that would otherwise need to be cooked in separate pots. Again, that makes you more efficient and it also gives you less to clean. The other big advantage is the advantage of steam cooking. Steam is the best heat transfer medium for cooking due to the increased energy inherent in steam. I would go into that more, but I don’t want to sound like Bill Nye the Science Guy.

We have this used Groen tilt kettle for sale. It’s in great shape and would be a valuable addition to almost any kitchen. If you’re interested in the kettle, call One Fat Frog at 407-480-3409 and we’ll set up a time for you to check it out.

Randell refrigerated prep table

IMG_0692One Fat Frog has some good refrigerated prep tables that you need to know about. The prep tables are made by Randell, a quality manufacturer who has been making this kind of thing since 1975. The prep tables are 84” and have three cabinet doors. These particular prep tables, of which we have two in stock, are model number 9050K-7M. The model is officially called a Saladtop Refrigerated Prep Table, but don’t let the word “salad” fool you. You can prep basically anything you want; not just salad. In fact, this particular prep table is probably most often used in sandwich shops and delis.

The prep table has a raised condiment bar for you to store all the toppings and condiments you want to add to the food you’re prepping. It has a recessed pan ledge. The top, cover, front, and doors of this prep table are stainless steel, with the interior made of aluminum. All of the doors, cabinets and pans are refrigerated to keep your food nice and cool. With all of the tabletop space and interior storage space, this model is considered a “high volume” prep table.

The cooling system in this refrigerated prep table keeps your food cold without worrying about it freezing. The cooling system basically just sends a flow of cold air over the food from front to back. The low velocity of the cooling system helps avoid food damage or freezing. The lack of a rear exhaust also means the prep table cools more efficiently and requires less space in your restaurant. These prep tables are highly versatile. If you want to add small appliances, such as toasters, microwaves or a small conveyor oven to the table top, go right ahead!

The Randell refrigerated prep table is 84” long x 33” deep. The refrigerant is CFC free. Like all used restaurant equipment, this is part of our big Spooktacular Sale that is going on right now. If you spend $5,000 on used equipment, One Fat Frog will give you a free new slicer. If you spend $10,000 on used equipment, the Frog will give you a free new fryer. If you spend $15,000 on used equipment, you get to go home with a new flat screen TV. If that sounds good to you, stop by our new warehouse and showroom at 2416 Sand Lake Road in Orlando.

We have a nice Grab N Go Cooler

Grab-N-GoOne Fat Frog has a nice used Grab N Go cooler for sale. What’s a Grab N Go, you ask? Well, other people might call it a Grab & Go or a Grab And Go cooler. They are also sometimes called open air merchandisers, but that doesn’t sound nearly as cool.

Whatever you call it, it is a refrigerated display cooler that is meant to entice customers to grab something off of it and buy it. It’s basically a cooler for impulse items for people to buy while they are waiting at a store or restaurant.

You see Grab N Go coolers most often at the supermarket. While waiting in line at the deli while they slice your meat, you’ll see a Grab N Go cooler that whispers to you “hey, why don’t you buy some iced tea while you’re waiting? Hey, would you like some banana pudding? Maybe a fruit cocktail?” A different version of a Grab N Go Cooler is found at virtually every checkout line at the grocery store, stocked with cold soda. Sure, you could have bought soda for cheaper from the soda aisle, but now that you’re in line, that cold, overpriced drink sure looks good….

And that’s the point of the Grab N Go cooler. It grabs the attention of the customer, making them grab the product you’re selling and then go buy it. Sandwich shops and other small restaurants do great work with these coolers as well.

This is a Kysor Warren Grab N Go cooler. It’s rounded and its dimensions are 52” x 45” x 58”. Right about now you might be thinking, “wow, that thing is really yellow. I don’t think I want a yellow cooler. It’s too bright and doesn’t fit my restaurant’s color scheme.” Hey now, no need to worry about that. One Fat Frog will repaint the cooler for free. Want it in blue? We’ll paint it blue. Want it purple with lots of flowers? Sure, we’ll do that. Want it black with skulls and crossbones? One Fat Frog would recommend against that custom paint job, but if you want it we will paint it for you. Come by our new warehouse at 2416 Sand Lake Road and check it out.

Henny Penny pressure fryer for sale

IMG_0582Look at this Henny Penny pressure fryer. Ain’t she a beauty? Maybe you need to be into fryers to understand. If you’re not, let One Fat Frog educate you about why this pressure fryer is so great.

You might be wondering, what’s a pressure fryer and how is it different from a regular fryer? With pressure fryers, the food you are frying is sealed inside the fryer. The latch is air-tight, which doesn’t allow air or moisture to enter or leave the frying bin. When the moisture from the food evaporates, it becomes pressurized which seals in the food’s natural juices and seals out the cooking oil.

Okay, so I guess it’s different. But what makes a pressure fryer better than a traditional fryer? I’m glad you asked. There are a lot of advantages of a pressure fryer, with the main ones being that it is healthier, tastes better, and is more efficient.

Pressure Fryers are healthier. The pressure seals out the cooking oil, making less of it get absorbed into the food. Less oil into the food means the food isn’t as greasy (think of Chick-Fil-A’s fried chicken versus KFC’s), which is healthier.

Pressure fryers make your food taste better. In addition to sealing out the cooking oil, the pressure seals in the meat’s natural juices. That means your food tastes more like your food is supposed to taste, without oil, grease and other things masking its natural flavor.

Pressure fryers are more efficient. The more efficient heat transfer of pressure frying means that the food can cook at a lower temperature and still cook faster. That means cooking takes less time and uses less energy.

Pressure fryers are the best way to fry food and this Henny Penny is a great addition to any kitchen. Any kitchen that does frying, that is.

New off the truck: General Meat Slicer GSE 110

General slicerThe One Fat Frog delivery struck just dropped off a bunch of goodies for us. One such treat is a brand new General meat slicer. If you love slicing up some meat, whether you run a deli, café, or you just bring sandwiches to work every day and love for them to be fresh sliced (is this Frog the only one like that?), this General meat slicer could be what you need.

This General meat slicer is model number GSE 110. What that means to you is that it’s a 10-inch slicer. That makes it medium in size, since General also offers a 9-inch slicer (GSE 109) and a 12-inch slicer (GSE 112). The slicer’s stated size is determined by the size of the blade, meaning this General GSE 110 slicer has a 10-inch blade.

The General GSE 110 is a 120-volt slicer, just like all of their slicers. That gives you plenty of power for your slicing without using up too much electricity. This commercial meat slicer is made for light to medium amounts of slicing; if you are a high-volume deli that always has long lines of people waiting for their meat, you might want to get the GSE 112 instead. The meat slicer used a patented belt and pulley system to give it maximum torque, which allows the blade to smoothly cut through that meat. When it comes to meat cutting, smooth is exactly what you want.

The General meat slicer’s overall size is 19” wide x 15.5” diameter x 14” high. The slicer weighs in at 44 lbs.

“Okay, Mister Frog, all of that is fine, but how does it cut?” I’m guessing that question was running through your mind. Here’s how it cuts. The maximum capacity load for the meat slicer is 8” x 6.5”. As for the size of the slices, it can do anything from tiny, microscopic shavings up to 7/16”.

If you get as excited about cutting meat as Peyton Manning does (“Cut that meat! Cut that meat!”), you’re probably drooling right about now. If not, hopefully you at least realize that this is a quality meat slicer that can service your slicing needs. If you’re not sure, stop by the One Fat Frog showroom and check it out in person.
