Ours are the “go to” commercial deep fryers for the busiest fish and chipperies and restaurants.
Cookon’s single and twin venturi high performance burners give maximum commercial fryer performance without wasting gas. Our renowned “ripple pan” base also gives the user greater recovery times and gets more heat per gas consumption by doubling the area of heated metal in contact with the oil.
Lower flue temperatures combined with Cookon’s overall energy efficiency means the higher your volume of covers, the higher the savings over the year; in the thousands of $$.
A solid, Australian-made build means equipment lasts decades, not years, delivering far lower cost of ownership per year for serious hospitality concerns.
Don’t be fooled by ‘fan forced’ when you can count on a true convection oven. Our ‘true blue’ commercial convection ovens are the real deal.
100% Australian made and owned, our high-performance convection oven range features:
Cookon ovens also demonstrate a considerable $$$ saving on ALL other comparable brands.
You can add delicious, crusty Italian pizza to your menu with nothing but some countertop space and a plug! The Cookon electric pizza oven runs powerfully on single phase 20 amp power (no external hood extraction required), will produce 6 x 10” pizza’s every 6-8 minutes (or 4 large pizza’s) can be placed on a bench (no expensive installation costs) and you can be up and running in a matter of hours.
If your pizza business goes well and you need to add capacity, just stack another Cookon pizza oven on top! In the image at left you will see this configuration working brilliantly at Fonzie Abbott; a beloved Brisbane brewery and restaurant that pivoted to pizza during COVID- their beautiful, crusty Venetian pizzas quickly became a “must have” menu item for pizza lovers across Brisbane!
Cookon’s powerful electric pizza ovens add flexibility, versatility and appeal to any commercial food business that could add value by adding pizza.
One of our customers conducted a Business Case to adopt KayBee commercial oil filter machine as an oil filter system across several busy kitchens. They documented their incumbent deep fryer oil filtration process and purchased 1 KayBee oil filter to run a comparative test. The result? The adoption of KayBee was a “no brainer” on several fronts: Cost savings ($18K per year over 10 sites), vastly increased efficiencies and safety, and increased food and oil quality. Take your kitchen operations to the next level with the Cookon KayBee Oil Filtering System!
