Kareen asked: How do I clean the coils of a deep fryer? I heard up on the dish detergent cleaning the fryer, but does it also clean the coils? I am asking for a Frymaster fryer at a restaurant.
The easiest and most effective way to clean the coils of a commercial deep fryer is to treat the whole frying compartment with a cleaning solution designed for the job. Here’s a simple technique to restore your fryer’s coils to a like-new condition.
You Will Need:
- Fryer Boil out
- Warm water
- Metallic/teflon pot scrubbers
- Long handled pot scrubber brush
- Clean towels
Steps to Clean the Coils:
- Begin by draining the fryer of oil and remove any loose debris.
- Fill the fryer as directed in your chosen product’s instructions
- Heat to a slow boil. Once boiling, maintain it for 20 minutes. The mixture of the heat and the boil-out will loosen the debris that is attached to the surfaces of the fryer.
- Loosen any remaining stuck grease or debris with a long handled brush.
- Drain the unit.
- Use pot scrubbers to clean the interior surfaces.
- Rinse with clean water.
- Flush with vinegar to remove any cleaning residue and help prevent the breakdown of new oils.
- Towel dry the surfaces.
Additional Tips and Advice
- If your fryer is not stainless steel, use a plastic mesh scrubber instead of a metallic one.
