death of deep fryers

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I own a Avalon Bay air fryer and I like it so much gave away my deep fryers. To the restaurant cooks, how long before places like Mcdonald dump the oil deep fryers fkr air fryers? I'm sure they can make stronger ones that cook as fast as a deep fryer.

No, they really can't. Air simply can't conduct heat that fast or handle production volumes. Battered items don't work in the air friers.

Deep fryers aren't going away at all.

Deep fryers are like an std, they wont go away. Air fryers are a housewife gadget not meant for commercial applications.

Air fryers would never work in the commecrial/professional environment. 

They take too long, and you can´t fry battered foods. 

It doesnt work well with large supplies and larger food items. 

 

It´s just something domestic. 

You can´t even call the method frying, because to fry you need to use oil....

There's a burger joint in SoCal, not sure how many restaurants they have but I think it is only a few, that promotes healthy options including air- fried potatoes and onion rings. They seem to grind meals out quickly but the taste isn't there unless eaten immediately.

Unless you're talking something like IQF, corn dog batter is typically wet.

Even IQF it was wet before it froze.
