Fries not fried

It's fries without the fried.

Scientists at Purdue University have developed an alternative fryer.

Their radiant fryer cooks with high temperatures, but no oil.

Associate Professor Kevin Keener will be demoing the prototype Wednesday on the Indiana campus.

He'll be cooking up hash browns and chicken patties using both his prototype and traditional oil fryers.

Researchers say the radiant fryer means food with less fat and fewer calories -- but with deep fried taste.
