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.
