Pressure frying


Pressure frying

In cooking, pressure frying is a variation on pressure cooking where meat and cooking oil are brought to high temperatures while pressure is held high enough to cook the food more quickly. This leaves the meat very hot and juicy. A receptacle used in pressure frying is known as a pressure fryer.

Pressure frying is mostly done in industrial kitchens. Ordinary pressure cookers are not suitable for pressure frying. [ [http://missvickie.com/howto/fry/frying.html A Word of Caution About Pressure Frying ] ]

The process is most notable for its use in the fried chicken products of KFC.
