Belshaw Donut Robot®
MARK II, V, VI Automatic Fryers

Donut Robot® Series Automatic Fryers deposit, fry, turn, and dispense cake and yeast-raised donuts, automatically improving donut quality and reducing costs. Training and labor requirements are substantially reduced while quality, repeatable donuts are produced time after time. Additionally, Donut Robot® fryers have been shown to reduce shortening use by up to 50%.

Donut Robot® Series Automatic Fryers are built with exhibition style production in mind - improving foot traffic and customer loyalty. For locations where exterior ventilation is impractical, the Insider "Clean-Air" kiosk, without exterior ducting, is the solution.

Belshaw Cake/Donut Plungers

Make a wider selection of specialty donuts with an investment in these cake donut plungers. Even greater variety is made possible with the addition of small attachments to a Belshaw plain plunger.


Belshaw Cake/Donut Depositors

Belshaw's Donut Depositors, the industry standard for over 75 years, are legendary for their precision and smoothness of operation - even after years of use in harsh conditions. Each Donut Depositor is engineered of durable gears, cams and trip arms that ensure identical volume and shape are produced with each and every deposit. Large swing arms enable precise positioning above the fryer with almost no effort. All units are mountable on a circular column or directly onto a wall.

Belshaw Type 'B' Donut Depositor is a mechanically assisted, hand crank machine designed for open kettle fryers of any make/model. The Type 'B' holds 15 lbs (7 kg) batter weight, and accepts all 10 Belshaw donut plungers and attachments, each forming one or more cake donut varieties. A typical operator can deposit 60 to 100 donuts per minute. Belshaw Type 'F' Donut Depositor is equivalent in size to the Type 'B', but utilizes a motor and touch-sensitive handle to deposit at a rate up to 115 strokes per minute. The faster stroke rate and easier operation of the Type 'F' reduces frying time variability between the first and last donuts dropped into the fryer, particularly for large fryers such as the Belshaw 724 and 734 fryers, and is physically easier on the operator. The "Deluxe" option features a highly polished aluminum body.
Belshaw Type 'N' Donut Depositor holds 12 lbs (5 kg) batter weight and is used with smaller fryers such as Belshaw's 616 tabletop fryer. The Automatic Type 'N' is designated for use with Belshaw Mark IX Donut Robot® fryers only. Type 'N' accepts the same plunger varieties as Types 'B' and 'F', but with shorter shaft length.

All Donut Robots® except the Mark IX employ an automatic cake donut depositing system that only requires filling with batter. The Donut Robot® Automatic Depositor operates with its own set of plungers and attachments for forming plain, star, french cake, mini, ball, nugget, dunkerette,and crescent donuts


Belshaw Electric Open Kettle Fryers

Belshaw's 600-series electric heated open kettle fryers are designed to produce high quality donuts with low operating costs. The heavy duty elements used by the 600 series are robust enough to withstand daily use for the entire life of the fryer. Space under the elements is reserved as a cool zone to avoid further heating of frying debris. The elements themselves tilt up to vertical to allow quicker cleaning after each shift. The kettle can be quickly removed for periodic cleaning outside the fryer. Easy-to-use submerge screens can be added to further improve production efficiency. And 600 series fryers are fully compatible with Belshaw Type 'B' and Type 'F' donut depositors. Belshaw's 600-series open kettle fryers also accommodate the EZ Melt under kettle shortening melter/filter. The EZ Melt can melt an entire block of shortening, and pump new shortening directly to the fryer at the touch of a foot pedal. Belshaw provides a full line of complementary equipment that saves labor cost and improves quality consistency:

Belshaw Hand Glazers

Belshaw's HG and HG-EZ hand glazers allow fast, uniform glazing of donuts, cinnamon rolls, cakes and other baked goods. These glazers conveniently glaze one full screen at a time, allowing a single operator to fry and glaze - with little or no wasted glaze. Unlike rod-style glazers, the glazing operation is quickly accomplished -without the operator's hands touching the donuts.

Belshaw's easy lift hand-glazer (HG-EZ) eliminates the heavy-lifting associated with standard hand glazers. Rather than being carried by the operator, the glaze applicator slides along rails as it glazes. This design provides even glaze coverage and more attractive looking donuts - all with less physical requirements from the operator. All hand glazer models are on movable casters and require little space. Stainless steel construction and sound design facilitate cleaning and provide a durable product that will stand up to years of everyday use. Glazers are available in sizes to accommodate standard screens.

Belshaw Shortening Filters

Belshaw's SF and EZ Melt shortening filters effectively clean and recycle shortening in any fryer with shortening capacity up to 211 lbs/ 96 kg. These filters reduce labor problems associated with handling hot shortening, extend the useful life of the shortening, and improve donut quality. The SF series filtering system utilizes a pump and refill hose combination for fast draining, filtering, rinsing, and refilling of the fryer.

The EZ Melt series filtering system has the additional capability to melt solid shortening and pump back to the fryer on demand. Shortening is maintained in the reservoir at a set temperature and is pumped through a fixed connection with the push of a foot pedal - reducing fry temperature variability and improving fryer recovery time. Handling 50 lb (23 kg) blocks of shortening is made easier - the entire block is loaded at once and the cube cutter inside the machine divides the block.

All filters employ a long-life synthetic filter that needs only annual replacement under normal operating conditions. All models are on movable casters, and can be stored under compatible floor and tabletop fryers. The flexible heat resistant hose features a plated steel nozzle and insulated handle to enable easy flushing of solid particles from any shape fryer kettle.
