Football fans across the country watched the Seahawks and the Broncos play the big game at their favorite local restaurant while dining on tasty game-day fare. Did your restaurant come through with a big win for the day?
Many of the appetizers and foods people like to eat while watching sports are prepared in a fryer. In fact, did you know that Americans eat more than 1.23 billion chicken wings Super Bowl weekend? That’s a lot of wings being fried and dunked in bleu cheese!
No matter if you serve wings, cheese sticks or fried shrimp, your fryer is one of the hardest working pieces of restaurant equipment in your kitchen. But the harder it works, the dirtier the oil can get. The good news is there is a way to extend the life of fryer oil and save money in the long run: a fryer oil filter.
What is a fryer oil filter? A fryer filter is a device that you purchase separate from your fryer that cleans and filters your fryer oil. While this piece of restaurant equipment is optional, if you fry large amounts of food and want to ensure the best tasting cuisine for your patrons, don’t go long without one.
The three main reasons to start using a fryer oil filter include:
1. Protects food flavor
Dirty oil can negatively affect the flavor of foods. When you keep oil clean with a fryer oil filter, foods taste great and patrons take notice.
2. Extends oil life
Oil is expensive. Keeping it clean helps extend the life of the fryer oil and, in return, helps restaurants save money.
3. Saves time
It can be a timely (and messy) process to change out cooking oil. With a fryer oil filter you’ll change oil less frequently and, when you do, the oil should be cleaner and therefore less messy.
If you think a fryer oil filter might be right for your restaurant, talk with experts who can give you individualized advice on which options are best for you. For help finding the right fryer oil filter for your operation, call one of ACityDiscount's experienced sales associates at 404-752-6715.
