It’s important to regularly clean your deep fat fryer to ensure you don’t contaminate food and cause your customers to become ill.

Follow this step-by-step guide on how to clean your industrial fryer to ensure you avoid these issues.

How to filter cooking oil

Sometimes you may only need to filter your cooking oil rather than remove it completely and clean your
deep fat fryer.

There can be some food debris in your oil and you just need to filter this out but it can continue to be used.

To filter oil:

1.    First skim the oil to remove debris

2.    Strain the oil with a strainer, cheesecloth or coffee filters

3.    Pour the oil back into a container or your fryer to be used again.

If the oil is dark or foamy then it should be replaced and not filtered.

Using cleaning services to maintain cleanliness

Cleaning your commercial deep fat fryer can be a time-consuming and tedious task.

Usually, the burden falls on the chefs or porters to carry out this task. Your hospitality staff are busy as it is without giving them the responsibility of ensuring your kitchen equipment is kept clean.

When you give your chefs the responsibility of this, it can mean your commercial kitchen equipment isn’t cleaned as regularly as it should be.

This can put your five-star food rating at risk, expose customers to bacteria which could damage your reputation, and poor maintenance means your restaurant equipment may not last as long.

Hiring a commercial cleaning service to maintain your kitchens cleanliness can be both cost-effective and show your staff that you care about their wellbeing and don’t want to stress them out with too many responsibilities.
