LONDON--()--Technavio’s latest report on the global commercial countertop fryers market provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on food sector, says, “Commercial countertop fryers mainly come in two basic versions, namely electric fryers, and gas fryers. These fryers are used to fry foods like potato chips, onion rings, fish, chicken, and shrimps. The frying time and oil temperature largely depend on the food type and size of the fryer.”

Countertop fryers have gained significant popularity among many food service establishments that require such equipment for producing low to moderate quantity of deep-fried food. Electric countertop fryers are also more economical compared with the floor model electric fryers as they mainly come in the USD 100-USD 3,900 price range.

Increasing availability of countertop fryers with improved features

The players in the global commercial countertop fryers market are introducing new models with improved features to help enhance the overall efficiency and productivity in commercial kitchens. Some of the new features being incorporated in the commercial countertop fryers are safety interlocks and hydraulic thermostats.

These countertop fryers also come with other advanced features such as cook time sensitivity to ensure consistent cooking of food and preset locked modes to preset different food items and enhance ease of operation of the equipment,” according to Manjunath.

Growing preference for energy-efficient countertop fryers

Energy-efficient fryers are also called green fryers. These fryers are environmentally friendly and offer numerous benefits like savings on utility costs, minimized oil usage and energy consumption, and low carbon footprint. With factors such as minimized oil usage, the countertop fryers also help in saving on oil costs, thereby offering monetary benefits.

The ENERGY STAR-certified commercial countertop fryers are gaining prominence worldwide as these fryers are relatively more efficient and help save significantly on utility bills. Even though the cost of energy-efficient countertop fryers is relatively higher, their demand is increasing significantly owing to the numerous benefits like high savings in oil and consistent product quality.

Growing adoption of healthy frying oils

Growing consumer awareness regarding the adverse effects of trans fats, which are mainly related to frying oils, is encouraging many food service operators to opt for alternative low or zero trans-fat cooking oils. These oils are considered to be comparatively healthier and have better nutrition value. Many producers of cooking oils are also offering these oils in highly stable forms.

Some of the cooking oils that come with good stability and frying properties include low or zero trans-fat oils like high-oleic canola and low-linolenic soybean oils. The less stable oils such as pure canola oil are usually less preferred by the food service establishments as they break down more quickly and also affect food flavor.

The key vendors are as follows:

  • APW Wyott
  • Perfect Fry
  • Star Manufacturing International
  • The Vollrath Company
