Fried foods has become favorite as it is easy to make and can be ready in a quick. However, choosing a new fryer can be confusing when there are many commercial deep fryer styles offered. Thus, we need to know some types of commercial deep fryer in order to make a perfect choice according to what we actually need.
The first type is Tube Fryer. This fryers type is suitable for a wide range of heavy frying, such as fried chicken, fried fish, french fries, poppers, hot wings, onion blossoms, and cheese sticks. However, this type can be more time consuming and difficult in cleaning.
The second type is Open Pot Fryer, which has unobstructed heating area. So it can be said that Open Pot Fryer tend to be more versatile and suitable for most basic frying needs. There are two models for this commercial deep fryer, the gas and electric models. The gas models heat the fry pot from the outside, and the electric ones have a heating element which is immersed in the oil. Although it is so easy to clean, this fryer is small and narrow so that it is less suitable for any heavy sediment foods. We can use this fryer for french fries, hot wings, fried fish, and hash brown frying.
The last type you might consider is Flat Bottom Fryer, which is best for delicate items that float near the oil’s surface, such as funnel cakes because it has a wide and flat bottom that is heated from below. Thus it is suitable for liquid battered and specialty foods, although it is kind of difficult to clean. Another thing to note is this Flat Bottom Fryer is not suitable for high-volume tasks or any foods that are suitable for Open Pot or Tube Fryer.
