A regular fryer cleaning routine enables it to work more efficiently, extends the life of your cooking oil, and preserves the taste of the food you cook. Most manufacturers recommend filtering cooking oil at least once a day, with the frequency of more thorough cleanings determined by how much cooking is done.
If the unit you purchased didn’t come with a fryer filter system built in, you’ll need to buy a portable one to keep your oil clean, your food tasty, and your shortening bills down. We offer units that can serve a single unit or several in a battery, with both gravity and pump drain operation.
As cooking oil passes through fryer filter paper during the filtration process, the paper catches the small particles that can both ruin the taste of your food and degrade the shortening, reducing its useful life. Using a new sheet or envelope each time you filter is critical for this type of equipment.
These portable pieces enable you to haul spent cooking oil from your fry vats to a proper disposal container. With a flexible hose and manual pump, a shortening disposal unit offers simple operation. The pumps are reversible, which allows you to use them both for suctioning oil from the vat and then emptying it into the collection container.
Adding fryer filter powder to your cleaning routine can make a big difference in the quality of your cooking oil by enabling the filter paper to catch even more of the particulate matter than can degrade the quality of the oil and the food you cook in it. Made from fossilized sea life, it bonds with those little bits, creating larger pieces that are easily caught by the paper.
From brushes to clean-out rods that push debris through the drain, these fryer cleaning tools ensure you get a thoroughly clean frypot. Each plays a crucial role in a proper maintenance routine.
