The FRITEL Succes Story

In 1991, company NV J. van RATINGEN started her first production of FRITEL fryers. This generation of fryers was a gigantic success and still is known as the "Traditional Runners". In 1997, the second generation was launched, together with the patent "Click System". These fryers exceeded by far all "Cold Zone" fryers brought to market up to then in design, maintenance-utility, user-comfort, simplicity, ….

This resulted in the acquisition of the market leader position in 1998.

Furthermore, in 1998, FRITEL was the first to bring a fryer to market that combines all the advantages of a "Cold Zone" fryer with all the advantages of a traditional fryer with filter lid. This model has been unrivalled up to now.

In 1999, being specialists in the field of fryers, FRITEL decides to take her first step to the catering market. To that end, we designed, with help from our own R&D department, an entire line of catering fryers. Here as well, our fryers can be called unique, because of our patent "Covering System" which makes maintenance and usage even more easy.

2000 was the year of REVOLUTIONARY INVENTIONS. Since more than 50 years (as long as fryers exist), producers have been looking for a solution. Therefore, FRITEL is extremely proud to be the first to manage the neutralisation of the dangerous splashes during the frying process. Thanks to her revolutionary invention "TURBO Safe Frying", the frying process knows no more dangerous splashes and is even up to 50 % faster. Furthermore, our "TURBO SF System" has even more advantages, such as a special position to melt the frying fat.

In 2004 FRITEL developed the unique "ACC® System" (Automatic Condensation Collector). This sytem sees to an automatic collection of the condensation in a collector. The collector is large enough to contain condensation from 30 frying cycles and remains horizontal at all time, whether the lid is open or closed. This collector can be cleaned with a cloth or can be put into the dishwasher along with the filter lid.

FRITEL is the first ever to launch a fryer which combines a metal housing with an automatic hinged filter lid. With this fryer FRITEL anticipates the modern trend of silver metallic colours and the raising demand of fryers with an automatic hinged filter lid.
