    Abstract

    A method and apparatus for stir-frying discrete pieces or particles of one or more foodstuffs by heating a surface (14) and bringing discrete pieces into contact with the heated surface through an inlet means (22), transporting said discrete pieces across the heated surface (14) by means of a mechanically driven stirring means and scraping means in the form of a helix (4), the discrete pieces being stirred such that the orientation of same with respect to the heated surface (14) is altered such that the various surface portions of the discrete pieces are brought into heat conducting contact with the heated surface (14), at the same time scraping the heated surface (14) by means of the rim of the helix or by means of special scraping and stirring elements (27) arranged along the rim of the helix such that the entire area of the heated surface contacted by the discrete pieces is scraped mechanically so as to remove any layer of material originating from the foodstuffs and adhering to the heated surface (14) and finally, removing the discrete pieces from contact with the heated surface through an outlet means (25, 26).
