The challenge presented to our global equipment suppliers when designing the next fryer for our restaurants was to develop equipment that provides us with better-tasting food while improving crew efficiency. We also needed to use less cooking oil and energy.
The Low Oil Volume (LOV) fryer is our next-generation fryer. LOV improves cooking efficiency, simplifies filtering and cleaning, and provides enhanced environmental benefits. It uses approximately 4 percent less energy than standard fryers. It also reduces packaging waste for markets using “jug-in-box” oil delivery and results in less oil to be disposed of for recycling or rendering.
The LOV’s innovative design allows restaurants to cook the same amount of product with approximately 40 percent less oil. It uses approximately 4 percent less energy than standard fryers. After the completion of successful tests, both electric and gas versions of this fryer are now in use and available for our restaurants worldwide.
