When it comes to lunch time staples, french fries are among popular side item for burger joints and school cafeterias. But did you know that you can perfect your french fries by cooking them in a CT PROformance combi oven instead of dropping the fries in a greasy fryer? This option is great for school districts who are phasing out fryers.
We’ve received rave reviews from those treated to our french fries at the Culinary Institute. Our guests find they taste just the same as fries that have been cooked in a fryer. The best part is they are incredibly simple to make with little prep time involved – perfect for busy kitchens.
