A chip fryer can do a lot more than just chips for instance other foods can easily be cooked like: chicken burgers, apple pies, fish, veggie burgers and almost anything else you want.
You can use a fryer to cook both frozen and non frozen foods offering your customers a wider choice of foods.
Very simply turn the gas on, choose the thermostat setting (this regulates how hot the oil is) ignite the burners and wait for the cooking oil to heat up.
When the oil reaches the desired temperature merely add your chips or (what ever food you are frying) into the chip basket, slowly lowering the basket into the hot oil. When the chips are done simply tip into a chip scuttle (this equipment keeps chips warm) or use a large deep baking tray with some grease proof paper.
When the cooking oil in the fryer becomes dark in
color or black change the oil immediately, at this point the oil has
seen better days. If you don’t change the oil your chips or other food
will taste of oil and your customers won’t appreciate it and the fryer will
start smoking while it's hot.
Use a good quality cooking oil to ensure a longer frying life as the cheaper cooking oils don’t last as long.To get the most out of the cooking oil, don't over heat oil by having it hotter than it needs to be for cooking your food, always follow the manufactures cooking instructions and temperatures.
The best time to clean your fryer is when you change the oil, so you can do everything at the same time. Start by draining all of the oil from your fryer and replace with water and a small amount of washing up liquid.
Start up the fryer and when the water gets very hot (bubbles up) turn off and use a light scouring pad to remove baked on grease. Drain-Flush-Drain-Flush with water until all grease deposits have disappeared -then refill with fresh oil.
