The Dean Fryer SR42G comes in two flavors. The first (which is where you’ll be directed if you click on the previous link) is the SR42G-Nat, which runs off natural gas. The second is the Dean Fryer SR42G-LP, which is powered by liquified petroleum of some sort, usually propane or butane.
Well! Now that we’ve gotten that unsavory bit of throat-clearing out of the way, here’s the buried lede for you all. The SR42G, whichever one you end up using, is an excellent lightweight fryer perfect for smaller kitchens looking to fry up some goodness for its customers. It’s efficient and affordable, costing only $604. Despite its svelte construction (and price tag), however, this Dean fryer will stand up to some pretty sustained use.
This fryer, like all Dean products, is ingeniously designed. It seems as though we keep belaboring its size, so if that gets old, we apologize. However, we just can’t help but point this out: Its incredibly slim design belies its surprisingly large frying area measuring 14″ x 14″, which is perfect for anything from French fries up to large food items.
The efficiency of the SR42G doesn’t end there, however. This fryer uses an exclusive Thermo-Tube design, in which the heating elements are shaped like tubes, which are surrounded by the cooking oil. The heat absorption is maximized through a system of diffusers which force the heat directly into the oil, making cooking more efficient. And since this makes heat-up time quick, idle costs low, and saves on gas consumption per load of food cooked, the Thermo-Tube design means a less aggressive energy bill at the end of the month, which is something we can all cheer about.
