The Dangers You Didn’t Know About Your Deep Fat Fryer

deep fat fryerAs people become more health conscious, more businesses are replacing their deep fat fryers with Quik n’ Crispy ventless fryers. However, it’s not just healthier and safer for you; it’s a wise financial decision. On average, businesses save roughly $15,000 per year on labor, materials, and insurance.

With deep fat fryers, you have dangers to consider such as grease fires, hot oil burns, and foodborne illnesses.

Grease Fires

  • When your cooking oil becomes too hot, a grease fire may occur. First, your oil will start to boil, smoke, and then catch fire. If it’s a small fire, turn the heat off immediately and put a metal lid on the pot. The existing fire will use up all of the oxygen in the enclosed area and put itself out.

Hot Oil Burns

  • When oil reaches temperatures of 400°F or higher, it can cause burns if spilled. Often, hot oil will pop if it gets too hot, too fast. Because the oil can pop in any direction, it’s impossible to completely protect yourself.

Foodborne Illness

  • If there is not enough space in the fryer for the food to cook thoroughly, some food may not get cooked all the way through. If this occurs, bacteria are still present and can cause foodborne illnesses. It’s imperative that every piece of food in the fryer is cooked to the right temperature.

If you don’t want to worry about grease fires, burns, or foodborne illnesses, buy a Quik n’ Crispy greaseless fryer. Are you interested in learning more? Call QNC, Inc or check out the answers to our frequently asked questions.
