Famous track athlete Steve Scott said it best, “If you find something that works, double down on it”. Now, he was most likely referring to his very successful career as one of the greatest mile runners in history. But at MTI, we think those powerful words apply pretty perfectly to our equipment. When we first introduced the AutoFry in 1990, expanding our product line was always a goal, and double fryers were a top priority.
Fast forward to 1998 to the launch of our very first double basket fryer, the MTI-40E. Capable of supplying up to 8 pounds of product per cycle, this heavy-duty fryer was also our first floor-model, designed ideally for high volume locations. Today, the MTI-40E can be found in large stadiums and arenas like the United Center, home of the Chicago Bulls & Blackhawks.
Let’s skip ahead seven years to 2005 and say hello to our first double basket, countertop model, the MTI-40C. This model allows customers to enjoy the benefits of a dual fryer even if they don’t have the floor space. Like its larger counterpart, the MTI-40C’s throughput is quite impressive, generating up to 6 pounds of product per cook cycle. This automated fry cook can be seen in large theatre chains like Regal Cinemas.
As we continue our stroll through time, we land in 2018 with the introduction of our smallest double basket fryer, the AutoFry Mini-C. This single-serve model is both compact and efficient, created with fresh, made-to-order, concepts in mind. The Mini C is equipped with an oil capacity of 1.375 gallons per side making a total of 2.75 gallons, and can be spotted in convenience store prominent chains like Rutter’s.
Now that we have gone over some of the individual benefits lets talk about the benefits that come with all dual sided AutoFrys. One of the most beneficial features of the double basket models is the ability to cook two orders at once, essentially doubling your output, and reducing your wait times. Another benefit of our two-sided deep-fryers is the division of the oil pots. Each of these models have two separate oil pots which allows owners and operators to utilize one side of the AutoFry for raw product and one side for frozen premade items.
