What Is a Deep Fat Fryer?
A commercial deep fryer is a type of kitchen appliance used in commercial kitchens for deep-frying foods such as fried chicken, potato chips, hash browns, french fries, and other deep-fried foods.
Commercial deep fryers commonly feature a basket that is used to raise food above and clear of the cooking oil when cooking is done. Modern commercial fryers nowadays also often include more features such as audible timers, automatic devices designed to lower the food basket into the cooking fat, and even functions that prevent crumbs from getting overcooked/burnt and features that reduce frying odors. Generally, one advantage of a commercial fryer compared to other fryers is that it cooks food faster and makes them crisper.
Advantages of Using a Restaurant Deep Fryer for Your Establishment
Perhaps the biggest advantage that a commercial electric fryer has compared to using a simple frying pan over an ordinary stove is its improved energy efficiency because of a better transfer of heat. The most common commercial deep fat fryers often run on gas and electricity, although there are some restaurant deep fryers that run on convection heating or infrared heating. These types of commercial kitchen deep fryers are considered very efficient, but they tend to be very expensive.
This is why commercial electric fryers and commercial gas fryers are two of the most-popular commercial fryers used in food-service establishments worldwide.
There are also a few factors to consider when choosing to buy either gas fryers or commercial electric deep fryers. One advantage of using a commercial electric fryer is that it loses a little less heat compared to a gas fryer because its heating element is immersed in oil and it therefore has a faster temperature recovery time between frying cycles. This is a great advantage especially in a busy commercial kitchen.
On the other hand, a commercial gas fryer heats up more quickly and to a much higher cooking temperature compared to its electric counterpart. Gas deep fryers are also more versatile as they can run on either propane gas or natural gas. Both of these fuel sources are considerably cheaper and less expensive compared to electricity, so if you are looking to save money, a commercial gas deep fryer may be your best option.
