Valentine fryer finally retired after 64 years of service

A Northern Ireland hotel has just ended its 64-year-old love affair with its sturdy Valentine ](http://www.valentinefryers.com/)fryer.

Esme Porter bought the Valentine twin-pan Frituse in 1947 when she founded the [Enniskeen hotel](http://enniskeenhotel.hotels.officelive.com/default.aspx)

"My mother obviously recognised the quality in Valentine fryers over 50 years ago and it hadn't stopped frying fish, scampi, chips and fritters since then, save for a brief period about 30 years ago when we fitted a replacement element," commented Porter.
