What is a deep fryer?
A Commercial Deep Fryer is a commercial kitchen equipment used for deep frying foods. This equipment is typically powered by gas or electricity and can accommodate a range of oils for frying. Modern commercial deep fryers are made of stainless steel and may include temperature controls, electric timers, filtration systems, and computerized thermostats.
The word “open-pot” refers to the unobstructed heated area of these fryers. This type is an all-purpose fryer that has a ribbon-shaped element immersed in the oil that folds upward which make it easy to clean.
Tube-type fryers have a series of tubes that run through the lower part of the heating tank. This type of fryer can accomplish the same tasks as “open-pot” fryers, but are slightly more difficult to clean since its tube-shaped heating elements are permanently set in the vat.
Flat-bottom Commercial fryer is designed for cooking lightweight and delicate food that float near the surface of the oil, thereby reducing the chances of sediment contacting the item. This type doesn’t have a sediment zone, so they are not as suited for high volume job accomplished with “tube-type” and “open-pot” designs. A Flat-bottom fryer is good for tempura, tortilla chips, and taco shells. Funnel cake is also a good example that is ideal for this type of fryer.
Commercial Fryer Maintenance
The oil you use in your commercial fryer reduces in quality over time and should be replaced. The regularity which you need to replace the heating oil depends upon what you cook, how much you cook and how frequently you use it. To improve the quality of the heating oil and its lifespan, use a heating oil filtration system to filter out food bits and debris left from the fryer. It works by draining the oil from the fryer tank, circulating it through a filter, straining out unwanted particles, and returning the cleaned oil to the tank.
It’s also important to boil out fryers regularly to burn fat and carbon build-up off the heating elements and the tank. These build-up can become corrosive and can cause severe damage to the equipment. Be sure to clean the inside of the commercial fryer regularly as well, you may take this opportunity when it’s time you replace the heating oil.
