Wells F-556 Built-in Fryer is one of the most durable and
versatile fryers in the industry. A swing-up element allows the
fry pot to be easily removed for cleaning, and the low watt
density provides for extended oil life. Fry two separate loads
at the same time using the individual fry baskets. The unique
STS (Safety Test System) can be used to periodically check
the temperature-limiting thermostat.
