Crispy fries, crunchy chips, mouth-watering fried chicken — serving up these tasty treats at your restaurant calls for commercial fryers. But with so many different kinds of fryers, where do you even begin? Let’s take a look.
When you’re shopping for restaurant fryers, such as Frymaster fryers, one consideration is the size. Typically, general purpose fryers have a 30-50 pound oil capacity, while large fryers for chicken and fish have an oil capacity of 60-80 pounds. General purpose fryers with a larger capacity mean they’ll have a faster recovery, this being how long it takes for the fryer to heat the oil back to the starting temperature once you drop in cold food. When fryers have a faster recovery, it can mean greater production, since the fryer oil temperature drops less and recovers quicker in order to maintain the proper cooking temperature. When fryers are low recovery, it can result in soggy products.
We can’t recommend stainless steel pots enough when it comes to restaurant fryers. They’re easier to clean and last much longer. When you’re shopping for fryers, look for a stainless steel pot with at least a five-year warranty, or, even better, a lifetime warrantee.
Another thing to consider when buying fryers is the sediment zone. This is where the excess breading and small food pieces collect when they fall off during cooking. Fryers have three different types of sediment zones, also called “cool zones.” Those types include: open pot fryers, tube type fryers and flat bottom fryers.
