A whole menu with one piece of equipment

19 October 2020

Fried food is a special treat that Australians love to enjoy when they are out socialising. Warm, comforting and satisfyingly crispy textures really hit the spot. And many fried food options are made for sharing.

The range of fried food that can be produced with the Perfect Fry is seemingly endless. Options can be tailored to the style, price point and demographic of your venue through simple attention to menu selection and tweaks to the way the food is presented.

A little known fact about the Perfect Fry is the high-quality filtering of the cooking oil. This enables the machine to be incredibly versatile. It can be used for an order of fish and chips at one moment and for sweet doughnuts the next, with no adverse effect on the flavour of the food.

From shareable snacks to full meals, there is a great range of high-margin options to help you offer a full menu with one ventless, automated piece of benchtop equipment.

Hot chips

From french fries to your classic chip to more rustic wedges, whether simply generously salted or served with mayonnaise and tomato sauce, the hot chip is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser that provides great margins of 70% plus.

But potato isn’t everything, consider a range of other options to give your menu a creative twist. Sweet potato, zucchini, eggplant and halloumi are creative options for chips that may appeal to the style and demographic of a range of venues.

While they’re not a chip, onion rings are another option worth mentioning here as a popular, shareable and high margin dish.

Fried chicken

From the classic chicken parmi to southern fried chicken and chilli wings, there are so many options when it comes to chicken. If boneless menu items are preferred chicken strips and goujons are also a great products.

And if you’re after something slightly more exotic, japanese chicken karaage is a fresh and fashionable twist on an old favourite, great with a range of dipping sauces.

There lots of already prepared chicken items that are fully cooked where all you need to do is drop into the Perfect Fryer to heat and crisp up the outside into delicious golden delights!


Classics like calamari rings and fish and chips never go out of fashion. However, there is a range of innovative products that are also worth consideration such as I&J’s flathead tails – they can be thrown into the Perfect Fry with a serve of chips and both items will be ready in 3 ½ minutes.

Its actually really easy to cook off some pre-prepared salt and pepper calamari, plate up on a bed of dressed rocket and a side of chips garnished with lemon and you have elevated more premium offer that will appeal to wide demographic.

Asian favourites

Ingrained favourites like spring rolls, samosas and dim sims are easy and popular go-tos, that also boast great margins.

The growing popularity of Japansese cuisine presents options like tempura prawns and vegetables.

French and Italian bites

The French and Italians are the masters of the irresistible fried bite. Think arancini with mozzarella oozing from the centre, tasty polpettes or moreish croquettes!

It is easy now to find good manufacturers of these products through most distributors. They cook quickly and easily in the Perfect Fry – bringing extra flair and variety to your menu.

Sweet treats

It’s not all about the savoury options, the range of dessert options that can be cooked in the Perfect Fry is endless. Ground zero for sweet fried treats is any type of doughnut: from Spanish churros to the classic American doughnut or bite-sized Italian bombolone they make for a popular and eminently fashionable, high-margin dessert.

What our clients say

“The FlashGrill is so good. Always such an even cook. Never have to worry about re-heating, it’s always at temp. Super easy to clean and nothing ever sticks. We cover the plate with 30 frozen burgers, cook them, then add another 30 straight away with no change in cooking time between the first lot and the second and get the same great result. It’s really impressive” Katrina Sanderson, Food Operations Manager - Bowser Bean and Vantage Fuels

It enhances flavours by cooking at low temperatures.

"FlashGRILL completes any food. It enhances flavours by cooking at low temperatures. It can perfectly caramelise and grill the products. It is great for white meat and fish. It is very satisfying to cook different kinds of meats and ensuring clients can fully perceive the differences in tastes due to the specific flavour of each product being preserved."Chef Francesco di Maria, - LA FIORENTINA Ristorante-Pasticceria Roma - Italy
“Since I have had the possibility to cook at lower temperatures, meat does not stiffen or burn. It remains evenly cooked and intact, and enhances flavour. Thanks to FlashGRILL, which keeps the temperature even on the full cooking surface, I managed to optimise cooking in my work kitchen. I also use the CLOCHE every day. Thanks to it, I obtain great results with meat and fish, like tuna. I am extremely satisfied.”Chef Diego Asara, - GINGER SAPORI E SALUTE Roma - RM
