Top of the line system…
This is no toy made in China. Pitco equipment is built with pride by American’s in Bow, New Hampshire and it shows. They have been building top of the line commercial fryers since 1915 and have earned their reputation in high demand restaurants all over the world for long lasting reliability and easy no-brainer operation. If you’ve been associated with the commercial food service industry for more than 10 minutes you already know that Pitco builds the best when it comes to professional grade fryers. Pitco builds 3 different levels of fryers, entry level with no-frills, high production fryers and high production – high efficiency frying systems.

What we know…
It is in excellent condition. Please enlarge the pictures and have a look at the fryer close-up. Check out the mirror reflection from the speed rail and the condition of the burners inside the cabinet. The stainless steel exterior has the look of chrome and the wells are spotless. The filter comes on strong and runs quiet. The basket lifts operate strong, silent and smooth. You rarely see these fryers with basket lifts but not because people don’t need or want them. Basket lifts cost $5,600.00 each and typically the only buyers that can afford to buy them with basket lifts are schools and government agency’s.
If you loose track of time – your fryer won’t….
The digital controls along with basket lifts are designed to give the operator more precision in the way fried food is processed but more importantly it gives the operator more freedom in the kitchen. If you are a one man show or seem to go through a lot of “new-hires” and you just don’t have time for mistakes then owning a fryer with basket timers and lifts is priceless. Just fill the basket, hit the button and go do anything else. No more over-cooking or trying to remember how long basket #3 has been down. When the basket is done your fryer will lift it out of the oil and let you know.
The Energy Star rated burner is the same dependable burner design Pitco has been using for over 20 years. It uses 140,000 btus per fryer and recovery times are measured in seconds. It is designed to handle large orders of chicken, fries and seafood. If your business depends on a lot of frying than this is the best equipment you can own!
