The fryer is one of the mostly frequently used pieces of equipment in any catering business. You can make so many delicious snacks with it! It’s not only suitable for making French fries, but also fish, donuts, tempura, churros and spring rolls. Maxima offers fryers in various sizes, from table models to ones with a base, to suit any business.

What types of fryers are there?

To start with, there are both electric and gas deep fryers. Frying with gas is slightly more energy efficient. It can also be more convenient if you work with gas bottles as you can fry food at almost any location. Electric equipment is usually cheaper to buy, however, and is the more logical choice if you don't have a gas connection.

Besides the energy source, you can also look at the size and capacity of the fryer you need. How many kilogrammes of fries should you be able to fry at once? There are appliances with one or two baskets, offering the choice to fry fries and other snacks at the same time. The temperature can also be set per basket. Here are the main types of deep fryers:

  • Tabletop deep fryer: a compact appliance that you can easily place on your countertop or on a table. The tabletop models are also available with a double pan. The higher capacity deep fryers often have a convenient drain tap.
  • Free-standing fryer: well suited to daily use because of the higher capacity. Maxima offers them with a beautifully finished stainless steel base.
  • Induction deep fryer: through the use of induction, the oil gets hot quickly and can be precisely maintained at the correct temperature.

Product specific deep fryers: this category includes devices that we also refer to as fish deep fryers or bakery deep fryers. The large, wider basket allows you to fry donuts or fish, among many other things.

What should you look for when buying a deep fryer?

It’s important to look at the energy source, the size and the model. If you need an electric deep fryer, check whether you need a 230V plug or have a larger 400V outlet. With a good quality fryer you can keep the oil at a constant temperature. This makes the difference between limp fries or crispy snacks. Do you worry about the capacity? Then choose a slightly larger option. When frying, it’s important that fries have space so they don't stick together. Check in advance that you have enough room to place the appliance in a safe and stable place. With a larger fryer, the oil and energy consumption is slightly higher so if you don't fry on a regular basis, that is something to consider.

TIP: Freshly made fries and other snacks should stay nice and warm. Check out our warming equipment to see which devices can keep your snacks warm best. Think of heated food display, heating lamps, or a chafing dish.

How do you clean a deep fryer?

An important part of the ease of use is how easy it is to clean a device. Thanks to the choice of materials and the smooth finish, cleaning is very easy. Remove the plug from the socket before you start and always let the oil cool down first.

The deep fryers with a drain tap make cleaning even easier for you: they let the oil run directly into a suitable container or bucket. For appliances without a drain tap, the handy design gives you a helping hand. All parts, including the heating element, can be detached. The removable tray is the last to be taken out for cleaning. The cooled oil can then be drained easily. You can also put hot water with a little washing-up liquid in the container to loosen the fat. Most parts can be washed in the dishwasher.

How do you use a deep fryer safely?

Deep fryer fat can reach up to 200⁰C. It is very important that you know how to work safely with it. Always consider the following points:

  1. Only fill the deep fryer with oil when it is switched off and never fill beyond the maximum level indicated.
  2. Moisture and water make hot oil splash! Be extra careful with ingredients containing a lot of moisture, or frozen snacks that still have ice on them. Use the lid during frying to protect against to protect against oil splashes.
  3. Always place the deep fryer on a firm and stable surface and at a height where you can easily see into the pan (at table height). A stainless steel worktable with splashguard is ideal for this. Place it in a place where you do not have to walk around often during frying.
  4. Stick to the prescribed temperatures, cooking time and portion sizes on the packaging of your snacks.
