Is a Deep Fryer with an Oil Filtration System Right for Your Restaurant?
A deep fryer with a built in oil filtration system is often a great investment for restaurants who have menus full of fried food options. The oil filtration system is a feature that helps to remove impurities and contaminants from the oil, which can improve the quality and taste of the fried food, as well as extend the life of the oil. Some deep fryers with oil filtration systems may also have additional features, such as adjustable temperature controls, timers, and baskets for holding the food being fried. They are often used to prepare a wide variety of fried foods, including French fries, chicken, onion rings, and doughnuts.
Investing in a Deep Fryer with Oil Filtration
The key feature of a deep fryer with oil filtration is the ability to filter and reuse the cooking oil, which can save time and money by reducing the need to constantly purchase and dispose of new oil. Oil filtration is easy with the press of a button, saving headache for employees and inherent risk that comes from working with hot oil. However, the initial upfront investment can be tough for some restaurants to handle. Deep fryers with oil filtration systems built in can cost anywhere from $20,000 on up to $60,000 or more. That initial investment will pay off in the long run due to the amount of money saved on frying oil, but it's only worth it if it doesn't put major financial strain on a restaurant with the initial purchase.
A Low Cost Alternative
For restaurants who can't swing a 5 figure investment, there's another option that's just as easy as pushing a button. FreshFry Pods are one of the safest, easiest, and most effective way to clean and reuse frying oil. All you have to do is drop a Pod into each fryer at the end of the day. Allow the Pods to sit overnight and adsorb the impurities that make oil degrade faster. In the morning, simply remove the Pods from the fryers and toss them into the trash. On average, restaurants see 2-3 days of oil life extension just from using FreshFry Pods. A yearly investment cost to purchase FreshFry Pods is about $820 a year for a restaurant with 1-2 fryers. Most of our customers end up with a net savings of $2,000 - $4,000 a year on their frying oil expenses. $820 is much easier to invest than $60,000. The best part is that you don't have to pay for a yearly subscription, you can pay monthly at $47.49 per case. Interested?
