GP | Gastronomic fryer - construction and technical parameters

A good quality gastronomic fryer is the basis of any business related to cooking and gastronomy. It is a relatively simple device that allows you to fry potatoes and not only in deep oil. A typical catering fryer consists of:

  • a heating module, built into the body, responsible for heating the oil to high temperature,
  • a cold zone that prevents food from burning,
  • chambers with oil heated to high temperature,
  • handles and covers that allow you to safely remove products or place them inside and cover the fryer chambers,
  • body, most often made of stainless steel, to protect against burns and damage to the device.

The parameters of a typical catering fryer depend on its model and, of course, the price. Professional fryers are those whose power is higher than 2kW. They can have one or two chambers. Each of the chambers should have a certain capacity for oil, in this case it is assumed that the smallest professional fryers should have a minimum of 3 liter chambers.

Of course, for the very operation and setting of such a fryer, the external dimensions are also important, as well as the efficiency of frying itself in the amount of finished product per hour.
