FAQ

Broasted chicken is battered and cooked in oil as well, but deep fried in a pressure cooker. It instantly locks in all the juices by immersion process cooking all sides of meat and once. One of the main differences between baking and frying is the heat source used to cook the food.

Broasted chicken is a trademark of the Broaster Company because we were the first to the bring pressure-fried, proprietary marinated chicken to the market and trademark the result!  If it sounds familiar, KFC claims a secret recipe for pressure-fried chicken as well, but cannot call it Broasted chicken because they don’t own the trademark.  The Broaster Company does partner with operators to serve Broasted chicken by following our program, using Broaster pressure fryers, and Broaster proprietary ingredients.

Broaster Company has been an expert in pressure frying since 1954, when our founder, L.A.M. Phalen, invented “broasting,” as he originally called the process. In the 65 years since, Broaster Company has developed as a leading manufacturer and supplier of pressure fryers along with other specialty foodservice equipment, accessories, and food product ingredients. Today’s Broaster® Pressure Fryers build upon this proud history of innovation with the inclusion of advanced solid-state controls featuring 10 time and temperature presets. Additional innovation of the SmartTouch, Touch Screen Controller provides a complete library of pre-programmed Broaster Foods cook times and product photos. Our pressure fryers feature a round of cooking well design with a specially engineered cold zone for superior heat distribution and improved oil filtration, and a reputation for durability beyond compare.

Pressure Frying is similar to conventional open frying in which foods are heated to cooking temperature in a well filled with cooking oil, except that in a pressure fryer the food is cooked under controlled pressure in a sealed vessel.

Foods cooked in a Broaster® Pressure Fryer are much more tender, juicy, and flavorful because moisture and natural juices are retained.

Cooking under pressure in a sealed environment prevents food from losing its moisture. When moisture evaporates from food during frying, it is replaced by the oil it is fried in. Oil absorption during open frying has been found to be as much as 20%. Pressure frying seals the food’s moisture and natural juices within the product, preventing the penetration of cooking oil.
