The objective of this research was to evaluate potato cakes and chicken patties fried using the FryLess 100K controlled dynamic radiant system and compare to oil immersion frying. The FryLess 100K is an alternative frying process, which produces fried foods with 30 50% less oil than their immersion fried counterparts. The FryLess uses high temperature radiant emitters to generate high flux infrared radiation. It differs from other cooking methods because it mimics the heat flux experienced during immersion frying, supplying energy to the surface of the food to cause water evaporation, crust formation, and browning. Benefits of the FryLess are high heat flux generation, reduced fat and caloric content, accelerated product heating, removal of safety hazards associated with hot frying oil, and elimination of fry oil waste.
