Energy Star

What is Energy Star? It is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency designed to help save consumers money while also protecting the environment through products that utilize less resources. In the food service industry, these more efficient products lower utility bills and in many areas, even qualify you for sizable rebates. Learn more about Energy Star, read our recent blog post here.

The Pitco VF35 is the first ever value priced fryer that is energy star rated. The 35 lb. fryer features a stainless steel tank, front, door, sides and back splash for long term durability as well as a lower flue temperature to generate more production per BTU. The gas control valve prevents gas flow to the burner until the pilot is established and the temperature limit switch safely shuts off all gas flow when the fryer temperature exceeds the upper limit. This value fryer boasts 70,000 BTU while using 35% less gas and giving the same production level as a 35C+S! Easily cook 55-60 lbs. of french fries per hour with this power horse while using less energy!

Rebate: depending where you live, qualify for rebates between $75 to $1900!
