Hoods vs Ventless: Maintenance Matters

Hoods vs Ventless 1 (1)When in the market for a new deep fryer, you may ask yourself, why ventless? Will it really save me money? At Motion Technology Inc., we welcome these types of questions on a daily basis. We are always ready to inform the curious on all the benefits of our ventless revolution! From cost to quality, we believe the AutoFry out shines your typical, open deep fryer.  

Purchasing price alone isn't the only thing to consider when looking into a new deep fryer, additional expenses must also be taken into consideration. The cost of an exhaust hood for your deep fryer can end up being as high as $20,000-$30,000 and that's not even including what a business owner has to pay for installation. Because the AutoFryExhaust hood cost  (1) requires no hood ventilation system, our clients save on costly renovations, as well as maintenance expenses. 

Maintenance on open fryers with hood systems can get pretty costly. Our ventless kitchen equipment maintenance is user friendly, allowing it to be completed by almost any employee. From the food entry chutes to the grease baffle, it is important that the AutoFry is well maintained, and to keep things as simple as we can for our clients we have even created a daily and weekly cleaning guide to direct you in the proper maintenance. These easy to follow guides provide step by step procedures to help keep your AutoFry looking and running like new! Now, on the off chance you have additional cleaning and maintenance questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call so we can assist you the best we can.   


OK, now how does this all differ from a regular open fryer? Probably the most obvious and most costly difference between the two would have to be the addition of the hood and the hood maintenance requirements. More often than not, business owners end up having to call in a maintenance company to complete the task of cleaning the fryer's hood ventilation system properly. This is usually due to the fact that each city and town has their own regulations for what they consider the appropriate hood maintenance requirements. Furthermore, the physical makeup of the long exhaust Exhaust hood costs vents that typically lead to the building’s roof, make it difficult for anyone other than a professional to clean. In some cases, the hood systems may even need to be removed for cleaning, which ends up being a timely procedure that a busy owner or cook simply doesn’t have the time for.

So, why ventless? Because it is the obvious choice! With our ventless kitchen equipment you will save time and money, allowing you to focus on the growth of your business!  Use your new found time to work on new menu or promotional ideas. The opportunities are endless when you make the right choices for your business.
