- The BKI® Corporation (formerly Barbecue King) of Simpsonville, South Carolina has been making commercial food service equipment since 1954. Commercial pressure fryers have been a proven cooking technology for over 60 years.
- The BKI® model FKM is a "6-Head" (6 chicken capacity) pressure fryer. It can cook 18 lbs of food per load, or about 48 pieces of chicken in every 10 to 11 minute cook cycle.
- Any food you can cook in an open fryer can be cooked in a pressure fryer.
- Pressure fryers can also be used as an open fryer.
- Pressure fryers are the best equipment designed for cooking fried chicken. They have been used for decades in many of the well-known fried chicken restaurant franchises.
- Like other types of pressure cooking, commercial pressure fryers cook food faster.
- Pressure frying preserves the food's own moisture, helping both cook faster and preventing a "dried out" product. Fried chicken will be tender and juicy on the inside.
- Quick cooking in a hot oil temperature still ensures a crisp outer crust, and prevents oil penetration that would otherwise result in a "greasy" tasting food product.
