SAVE YOUR OIL The four elements

that break down cooking oil and result in more frequent and expensive cooking oil changes.

OCF Fryers Produce 66% more food per gallon of oil! ENERGY STAR® approved OCF30 fryers deliver cost savings, green benefits, outstanding performance and more...Gas or electric, 30-lb. OCF30 fryers offer the same production capacity as a 50-lb. fryer, yet take 40% less oil to fill; resulting in less oil used and less oil discarded into the waste stream. The Oil Attendant® top-off option and FootPrint PRO® built-in filtration keep the oil fresh with minimal intervention. OCF30 fryers mind the cooking and safeguard workers by minimizing their handling of hot oil (less frequent oil changes, built-in filtration and auto top off). Models FPEL214CA, FPEL217CA shown.

Water Air Sediment Heat Remember W.A.S.H. Here are four tips to minimize oil breakdown... Don’t fill fryer baskets with frozen product while they’re hanging over the oil – ice crystals (i.e., water) will fall in. Cover the fryer at night to minimize air exposure. Remove sediment from the frypot regularly. Don’t turn fryers on first thing in the morning if you don’t need them until noon – the additional hours of heat will degrade the oil and waste energy.
