Electric commercial deep fryers are commercial kitchen equipment used to fry foods such as french fries, potatoes, and other items in oil or other frying solutions. These appliances are designed to hold a certain amount of oil, typically between 5 gallons and 50 gallons, and they have a heating element that keeps the oil at a specific temperature.
They are typically made of stainless steel or cast iron. Some electric commercial deep fryers have a lift system to transfer food from the fryer basket to the fryer pot. Some electric commercial deep fryers have filtration systems. Most commercial deep fryers have a thermostat so that the oil maintains the desired temperature, and some have timers so that the oil shuts off when the desired frying time has elapsed.
