Try rice bran oil-smoke pint 490, long lasting and trans fat free. Plus, it is easy on the clean up.
different laws also apply to floor or table mocdels in my county
ACID works wonders, heat it and it does real wonders, run some electric through it and even better. The clear stuff in the gallon jugs with the skull and cross bones works wonders if you follow the directions and clean up after yourself.
Phosphoric acid (stuff in soda) works great.
Lemon Juice or Citric acid can be used as an alternative.
dr of bbq,
it’s what i have used on my fec100 and both of my sm150’s. it also works great on the hood filters and smoker racks.
O BLA D
Prisonchef gave great advice. These health dept’s can drive you nuts or to the poor house.
As for the oil, I use a zero-trans fat canola oil. More money to be sure but I cange it out less. But the MAIN reason I do it is because my fries are fresh kennebec’s and the canola oil gives them the crispest cleanest flavor. Also very little cross over flavor from different food items.
A salesman reccommended a Pitco 45 lb. floor model deep fryer, I have a full kitchen I do appreciate everyones comments.
we are not even sure what situation rs has. are you in a full size kitchen, or just a little pop up window, or what? i use a little counter top fryer…14 lbs of oil. it works well, and i dont have to filter. just dump every couple days, wipe down, and refill. its got battle scars, but works. anvil, is the make. yea, i have the hood and the suppression system.

So Jack can I use Lemon juice to clean up my Cookshack and Klose Shelves and walls? And I’m my dishwasher LOL
the idea was given to me by my dishwasher,dan, while i was chef at the conference center. the idea was originally for griddles and yes the lemon juice works better than chemicals. just be sure to buy the cheapest that you can get. it saves a bunch of bucks and you never have to worry about chemical containmenation of your food.
ps. i have no idea why the cheapest concentrate works the best. sure glad it does though as it improves the bottom line [:D]
pps. always treat your dishwashers like gold!!!!!!!
Vinegar will do the trick also.. Stick it in a spray bottle and spray the tank. If you have a heavy buildup, use some baking soda also (will require a little elbow grease).. Above is purely organic and residue will hurt nobody! Have a dealer around here that makes a product called Rhino. This stuff is so strong you can take oil stains out of your driveway.. And if you happen to ingest it, probably get heart burn at the worst. Totally organic and safe stuff also.
Lemon juice works just as well and is less likely to hurt you if you miss some! DON’T use soap! I only used the chemical to clean the carbon build up on the outside.
VULCAN.. I couldn’t think of that for anything the other day.. I was thinking of Star Wars…
Garland and Wolfe are good names.
Check E-Bay for a place called A-City Restaurant. They sell new fire suppression systems, hoods and everything else. Sometimes the shipping is free depending on the item. I believe they are out of Georgia.
Does the lemon juice concentrate do as well as the chemicals. Thats a good tip those chemicals are pricey
before you add the fryer get with your health department and/or fire marshall. in my locale a fryer will require a fire suppressor in your hood system. to show how goofy that can get if i go 25 miles north the next county does not require a suppressor. these can run into the thousands in cost so check that aspect out first. that being said myself i prefer fryers made by vulcan and i have used both the gas and the electric models (the electric i used at the executive dining room of barnett bank in downtown jacksonville,fl. as we were on the 42nd floor gas was not allowed and the whole kitchen was electric). if you can afford it peanut oil is the best due to a high smoke point. one thing you do not want to do is to get salt in your oil. salt will deteriorate your oil by making the hydrocarbon chain shorter due to chemical reactions. when that happens your smoke point will drop which will prevent you from running in the 375f area and more importantly will shorten the "life" of your oil. a good cheap method of filtering your oil to increase it’s useful life is to buy a big china cap and a 5 or 10 gallon stock pot and a supply of filters but in a pinch i have used cheesecloth and plain old paper towels. while your oil is hot just run it thru the filter in the china cap and into the stock pot. while it is filtering just boil out your fryer and a cheap way is to use a bottle of lemon juice concentrate in the water instead of chemicals. drain the fryer,rinse with fresh water and refill with the filtered oil and away you go again.
hope it helps some
ps. and they wonder why i don’t have a fryer in my rig[:p]
pps. a cheap way to buy a fryer is to watch the auction section of the newspaper. food places go out of business all the time and the equipment gets auctioned off.
I am a newbie with almost zero experience!
