Pitco Supreme Solstice Fryers - A Smart Choice

While the fryer remains a staple in most modern kitchens, it’s still relatively labor-intensive, with workers draining, filtering, refilling the oil, pulling baskets, and other duties. 

What if restaurants and foodservice operations could employ an innovative fryer to handle its time-consuming maintenance independently? What if these establishments could reduce labor while delivering delicious and consistent results?


The solution is Pitco Solstice Fryers with SMART technology.

Pitco Supreme Solstice Fryers can do it all with automatic filtration, automatic oil top-off, oil quality censoring, and fresh and waste oil management.

Here’s a closer look at how Automatic Oil Filtration, Automatic Oil Top Off, and the Smart Oil Sensor enter the Pitco Solstice Fryer equation for a profitable and efficient operation.

 Automatic Filtration

Dirty fryer oil is challenging, especially when deep-frying customer favorites like chicken or fish. As breading and food particles drop into the oil, they can burn and create an unpleasant flavor. Also, with everything going on in the kitchen and in many cases where staff may be limited, there’s not always time to drain and filter the oil to ensure high-quality results. Oil filtration is a built-in feature of the Solstice Fryer, all without human interaction. The machine automatically filters out particles and crumbs to ensure consistency and flavor quality. There is no need to open anything or mess around with knobs or levers. Once the oil is ready for collection, the fryer automatically dumps it into a container so an employee can pour in a fresh batch.

 Automatic Oil Top Off

The best way to ensure the fryer always has the right amount of oil is to use the automatic oil top-off feature. This fryer can automatically add oil as needed throughout the day, which means less labor, fewer errors, less guesswork, less stress, and consistent quality throughout the day.

 SOS: Smart Oil Sensor

Another significant challenge restaurants face is that it’s hard to tell when fryer oil is going bad. Since it’s not economical to use fresh oil with each batch, restaurants risk either disposing oil too soon or serving food fried in oil that leaves an unpleasant taste. The Smart Oil Sensor (SOS) on the Pitco Solstice Supreme is the most innovative sensor on the market, and it can notify operators when it’s time to change the oil. In addition, automatic, accurate oil quality measurements are displayed, and the data is stored. This notification system, paired with the other Smart features, ensures that restaurants can maximize every drop of oil they use. And, as we know, less oil usage = less oil expense. And, let’s not forget the damage that can be done by serving a meal to your customers that is not consistent with your reputation and talent.
