Foodservice equipment maker Henny Penny Corporation (Eaton, OH, U.S.) announced that its OFE and OEA 320 series of electric open fryers earned the Energy Star(R) mark, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency designation awarded only to products that achieve the highest levels of energy efficiency. The open fryer line joins Henny Penny's HHC-900 heated holding cabinets, which has already earned the ENERGY STAR mark.
"The Energy Star mark is excellent validation for our efforts in making equipment that offers high performance with minimum net energy consumption," said Kathy Veder, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Henny Penny. "Our customers are saving money -- real money -- on operating expenses. And with energy conservation in particular, there is the significant benefit to the environment."
Henny Penny says that fryers with mark can offer annual savings as much as U.S. $60 per year for each fryer in operation. To earn the mark, an electric fryer must attain at least 80-percent cooking efficiency for a 3-lb load of French Fries and an idle energy rate of 1,000 W.
