Select Models

The UltraGold P20-18 commercial gas fryer occupies the middle ground: not too big or too small. It's a great choice if you're looking for higher production capacity than our 14 series but with the same made-to-order features. The patented PAR-2 heat exchanger puts out 65,000 BTUH per vat. That's more than enough to to keep up with customer demand. 

The UltraGold P20-18 commercial gas fryer is perfect bone-in chicken, large-volume french fries, onion rings, tenders, wings, and seafood.
