The chip fryer is the hardest working part of many restaurants and catering businesses and so it is important to buy one that is suited to your kitchen's needs. It can be hard to compare different sizes and models of deep fryer in a showroom and the best way to get a comprehensive overview is to search for chip fryers online.
Tabletop Chip Fryers
The smallest commercial chip fryers are made to stand on a kitchen bench or tabletop. These units have a 5-litre capacity for frying medium and will cook smaller batches of food very efficiently. Tabletop fryers also have the advantage of being very portable and there are no expensive installation costs. This style of chip fryer is also available in double-bay units and are constructed for easy dismantling, making them easy to clean and maintain.
Free Standing Chip Fryers
Larger volume kitchens will require chip fryers that can handle a greater capacity and which have a quicker temperature recovery time than the simple tabletop models. Free standing chip fryers have a frying medium capacity of 20 litres and are designed to maintain an even cooking temperature for larger batches of fried food. This style of chip fryer usually runs on gas although there are electric models, but either way this sort of frying equipment requires specialist installation. As with the smaller chip fryers, free standing units are also available in double bay models, making it easy to maintain alternate cooking temperatures for different kinds of foods.
Other equipment like wire baskets, spiders and chip cutters that is required to operate and maintain a chip fryer can be found online, and it is often included in the same lot. Buying good quality, well-maintained secondhand frying equipment can also be much less expensive than purchasing new ones.
Finding the chip fryer that not only fits into your commercial kitchen, but also has the capacity to handle the volume of food that is produced daily, is easy to do online. You can browse a comprehensive selection of commercial chip fryers, both new and used, making it simple to compare and choose exactly the one that you need.
