Evolution Elite

The Henny Penny Evolution Elite® redefines how a fryer can affect quality, simplicity and cost management. The Evolution Elite's innovative reduced oil capacity technology cooks the same amount of food in about 40% less oil. And you're not just buying less oil - with less oil to heat, this highly efficient fryer saves energy every minute it's operating. The fryer's SmartFilter Express™ lets you filter any vat in four minutes or less while you continue cooking in the rest. Henny Penny Evolution Elite® series open fryers also recover temperature very quickly and have earned the ENERGY STAR® mark. Knowing our customers' needs, reliability and quality are the key elements that went into the Evolution Elite®'s design.

Less Oil = Larger Profits

Doing more with less: that’s the inspiration behind the innovative Evolution Elite series from Henny Penny.

Available in gas and electric models, the Evolution Elite helps you manage costs and reduce consumption while ensuring consistent flavor and keeping customers satisfied — every order, every day.


  • A smaller fry vat allows for significant savings by requiring 40% less oil than a standard 50 lb. fryer, while maintaining the overall cooking capacity. The Oil Guardian™ system monitors oil levels and automatically replenishes oil from a reservoir inside the fryer cabinet, eliminating manual add-backs and frequent oil disposal.
  • The SmartFilter Express™ increases employee productivity because it is fast and easy. The fryer monitors usage and prompts the user when filtration is necessary. During the process, the FilterBeacon™ lights up to indicate when to both open and close the drain valve. The system takes care of the rest by filtering the oil, rinsing away crumbs and returning hot, filtered oil to the vat – all in 4 minutes. Meanwhile, all the other vats continue to cook uninterrupted.
  • iControl™ ensures accurate, consistent cook times and great-tasting food with its 40 stored programs, load compensation, and idle/melt/cleanout modes. This easy-to-use system also features adjustable language settings to accommodate any crew.
