The FF400 is a medium-duty economy fryer, with a 14-inch vat with an oil capacity of 40 to 50 pounds. Powered by natural gas, this unit features three cast iron burners that use stainless steel baffles to offer a maximum of 120,000 BTU per hour of heating capacity. Since the tubular burners are submerged in the oil, they provide maximum efficiency in heat transfer, which means more of the gas used becomes heat that is actually used for cooking. That also enables this floor-model fryer to provide faster recovery of cooking temperatures when cold foods are added. Two nickel-plated baskets are included to allow you versatility in frying multiple food items at once.
The vat's large cold zone includes 20 percent of the tank's oil, allowing plenty of room away from the burners for food particles to collect. That keeps them from lingering in the hot oil, which can burn them and impart a burnt taste to the oil. That helps you maintain fresh oil longer, limiting how often you have to change or filter your oil and extending its useful life.
This FF400 fryer is made to be easy to clean, with a welded stainless steel tank that is polished to a smooth finish. The unit includes a 11⁄4-inch drain and a drain pipe extension to make draining the oil easy when replacing or filtering is needed.
