Buying guide: make the right choice when buying a professional fryer
When buying a large or small household appliance, you should always take into account not only the space available for its storage, but also its end use. In professional catering, the choice of cooking equipment such as the deep fryer is based on the power, but also on the performance of the appliance. If you are a restaurant owner, you should therefore know all the technical and practical details of this cooking equipment for frying and snacking before investing in it.
What is a professional deep fryer?
Originally, the professional deep fryer was designed to make French fries. Only a slight subtlety distinguishes this machine from the traditional deep fryer. Its real advantage is that it can quickly raise the temperature of the oil to cook the food to be fried. You will therefore have a container consisting of a heating vessel where you pour the oil, a power source and a thermostat to control the temperature of the oil bath.
The pro fryer is also designed to meet the requirements of restaurant owners in terms of kitchen equipment, which is why the hygiene and safety standards for this purpose are strict in order to ensure high efficiency. Firstly to reduce the depreciation costs of the stainless steel fryer and secondly to be able to reuse the frying oil, without altering the taste of the food cooked in this way.
Fryer models available on the market
A professional kitchen as well as a laboratory is rarely expandable. To meet the expectations of catering professionals like you, brands compete in options and features and of course in models to be the best. Among the types of fryers, the most popular are the professional electric fryer for standing, the free-standing model, the oil-free fryer for snacks such as fritters, churro and chichi.
The first selection is made for the countertop and consists of 1 to 2 baskets, powered by gas or electricity. The second can have up to 3 bins. The high efficiency electric fryer is interesting considering its frying capacity.
The benefits of food
In your best interest, you need to consider how your deep fryer is powered. To do this, you need to know how to choose its energy source. In short, you have a choice between electric and gas fryers.
The electric deep fryer is equipped with a rectangular, square or round tank, heated by a resistance. The advantage of the latter is that the temperature can be adjusted to the degree. In some cases you can choose the individual temperature of each cooking tank. By doing so, you will have several types of frying at different temperatures.
The gas supply is advantageous when buying a deep fryer, but in this case it is more a question of a burner that heats the tank. This range consumes less energy and is the ideal solution for saving money in the long term. However, some establishments must only use electric appliances because of the safety standards of the building where they are located.
The choice of power and capacity
The choice of capacity and power of a fryer is interdependent, so you will find models ranging from 2 kW to over 90 kW in power, and the same applies to the frying capacity.
The power of a deep fryer is measured in kW per kg, so choose it according to the amount of fries you intend to produce.
If frying is not your main activity, opt instead for a small fryer that will allow you to prepare between 500g and 1kg of fries per batch, at a rate of 3kw of energy expenditure. 5kw models will be recommended for cooking more than 1.5kg of fries. The minimum power for an appliance with 2 bins of 1kg each will be 6kw.
You can also refer to the power of the machine based on the quantity of oil. 0.7kW is required for 1l of oil. 5l will therefore require 3.5kW.
When it comes to the capacity of this catering equipment, the output of a professional fryer also depends on the volume of production. In addition to the number of pans, you also need to know the size and capacity of each pan. While some models have up to 5 pans, others only have one. These are recommended for establishments where fried food is only a small part of the menu.
The size of the bins is variable, ranging from 4l to 12l. A small fryer will be more than sufficient for occasional needs.
As an indication, a professional fryer with a capacity of 3-4l can produce up to 7kg of chips per hour. A 5l fryer can produce 10kg of chips. A maxi fryer with a capacity of 8 to 10 litres can fry 15 to 18kg of chips. A 15l capacity fryer will produce 25kg of chips in one hour.
The different functionalities of the fryer
For the maintenance of your kitchen utensils, cleaning is essential. In this respect, manufacturers offer the option of a drain valve to facilitate the maintenance of this kitchen equipment. Thanks to this drain function, emptying the tanks and then refilling them is simple, quick and completely safe.
If there are pieces of food that come loose during cooking, a cold zone is specially designed to prevent them from carbonizing. This part of the heating vessel is not subject to the stirring of the cooking oil on the heating element, so you have two thermal layers in the same oil bath.
The price of a professional deep fryer
The budget for the purchase of a deep fryer also depends on the power, capacity and existing features of each model. For a professional kitchen, several models are available. For a 1400W deep fryer and an infrared halogen heating system, count around 140 euros. Multifunction and stainless steel models are sold from 71 euros. You can also find this kitchen equipment from 65 euros with a power of 3000W and a timer without forgetting the option of a multi-cupboard.
