Why buy a Broaster® model 1600E electric pressure fryer?
  • The Broaster® Company of Beloit, Wisconsin has been making commercial pressure fryers since 1954. Commercial pressure fryers have been a proven cooking technology for over 60 years.
  • The Broaster® model 1600E is a "2-Head" (2 chicken capacity) pressure fryer. It can cook 7 lbs of food per load, or about 16 pieces of chicken in every 10 to 11 minute cook cycle.
  • The Broaster® model 1600E is the smallest commercial pressure fryer offered among the brands here at
  • Single-phase or three-phase wiring on the Broaster® model 1600E is available from at no additional charge.
  • 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.
  • If you choose to use the Broaster® brand trademarks in your food service advertising or menu, the Broaster® Company will require that you demonstrate use of their condiments and equipment.
  • Please note that the model 1600E 2-Head pressure fryer is only available as an electric machine. Gas heat is not an option.
