    Has anyone had an experience using a ‘Perfect Fry’ Ventless Hood System fryer?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Yes & if they weren’t so expensive, everyone would have one...at home!
    I’ve been involved with the basic one (1lb/cycle), w/out the dump basket, etc. Here’s my .02...they’re great for low/med volume, but that just means it takes longer to get your ROI. I guess if a person could pick up a good used one for half price, it may be worth it, but @ $6K-ish it will take awhile to break even.
    You may be able to get a distributor to bring one in to demo?

    I bought a used one for $1500. I cleaned it up and worked great for 2 days. The model that is $7500. Then the fire extinguisher fell just below the fill level. you have to buy a new one. that is $1100 dollars. Also a fan went out. the smaller one (there are 2) it looks like something on the back of a desk top computer. $450 bucks. When things break the computer will not let you continue to use it. I have not fixed it yet due to money shortage. But when it worked it was great. And when I get the money I will fix it, but it does make me wonder what I will have to fix next.

    Have you had any problems with it breaking down?

    Currently we are using the Broaster version of the ventless fryer. I started out using Perfect fry units in 2002, but the Broaster units have more capacity. I have had very good luck with the units. Most repairs can be done by the user. If you have any other questions, let me know.
