I started out using an SOS pad on mine, which worked great except for the crevices I couldn't get the pad into. I followed up with soft scrub and a brush and was able to get into all of the crevices, and it looks brand new!!

I had the Deep Fryer Cleaning Nightmare From Hell. I had to do a complete disassemble of my deep fryer. Goo was every ware. I tried a number of cleaning products and all the elbow grease that I had the patience for. Nothing worked. The lite stuff came off but not the goo. Until I tried dishwasher detergent. I mixed about 1/2 tsp. to a cup of hot water for soaking the small parts and hardware. I let them soak for a couple of days (that was mostly procrastination) but it worked. And I soaked the larger parts in the sink (3-4in. of hot water) with about the same amount dishwasher detergent as you would use in the dishwasher. I used an old toothbrush and Qtips to get into the places where normal scrubbing could not reach. Be careful that you don't use anything that will scratch the Teflon or anything on the outside of the casing. Good Luck.

PS: You'll still need to use some elbow grease.

The lid melted into the grease on my FryDaddy. Is it safe to cook in?


It is probably safe. But why not load up one time with new oil and cook a load of french fries, and then throw the oil and fries away, just to make sure.

How do you empty the grease?


There's no really easy way. Let the oil cool. Place a piece of foil over one side of the rim and then use a ladle to remove as much of the oil as possible. Then remove the foil and quickly invert the fryer, not giving the last of the oil a chance to get around the edge of the rim. Wipe the rim with a paper towel before turning it right side up. Doing all this over a piece of newspaper help to control the mess.

How to remove and clean burners of soot


You can purchase deep fat fryer cleaning solutions in a powder form or liquid....we sell them and other companies do too. The key is to boil your product, along with water in the fryer, using a L shaped brush to add in the cleaning process. You may need to do this a couple of times, if your fryer is really bad. If you boil it out, drain it and it's still really cruddy, then use a green pad and scrub what you can manually, then fill it back up, use whatever product you desire, boil it out again, using your L brush too. That will help clean out the drain hole where you drain the grease out, as well as the burners too. This is not an easy job, so if you think 15 or 20 minutes will do it, it won't... It's tough to clean restaurant equipment, as it's used normally 24/7 and not taken care of very well normally. Spills are burnt on, nothing is ever wiped up, grease spills over the sides of the fryer, and the crumbs in the bottom are burnt over and over, as some people don't strain their grease, just using it until it becomes unuseable... It's a tough job, but one we do quite often, and you just have to put in some elbow grease, use your cleaners, along w/the boil out method, a green pad or 2 or 3, and when you are satisfied and done.... Be super sure to rinse all the chemicals out of the frypot before you add any oil to it. Leaving ANY soap in the bottom of the frypot will help to break down your oil and spoil it way before it should, and that's expensive to replace over and over. Keep your temperature down to 325 degrees and that will help you save your oil as well. If you want to really extend your oil, buy and use a additive like Miroil. This is a oil additive that is used to extend the life of your oil, on a daily basis, sometimes twice a day, depending on your hours of operation/business. This additive , along with keeping your temp at 325, straining your oil, and rinsing your pot out well before adding oil will extend your oil so well, that you will never dump a whole vat of grease again....You will get a formula that will tell you how much grease to pull each day and you will replace that amount with new oil....If you have 2 fryers or 3, you would pull oil from your appetizer fryer and put it in the fish fryer, dumping that oil, whatever the measure is, like 3 cups or whatever. The idea is that your appetizer fryer has the lighter cooking foods in it and the fresher oil. The fish fryer can handle the older oil a bit better. All fryer foods will look/taste/ much better all week long, without your foods getting darker as the week goes on... Your foods will also absorb less oil, if you keep that temperature down to 325 instead of 350 or higher. That higher temp also helps to burn your oil up quicker, so keep it down....
I've seen this product work, and every customer I ever sold it to, never stopped using it once they started, and the cost is under a dollar a day.... Your savings are huge, as oil is one of your most expensive costs in the food industry. If you need a place to buy the additive or the fryer clean out products or the L brush, we sell all of it and can ship directly to you. Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, OH 888-542-5959.
Happy Frying...

The stack in the rear has carcoal build up, also the lower components are covered with caked on grease


You really need to clean this up before using it... Built up grease will catch fire, and it's fairly easy to clean this. You can buy some deep fryer cleaner at a restaurant equipment type store near you or I can ship some to you, but it's easier to use a product intended for that use... They have liquids or a powder available and you will want to turn your fryer on to boil it out, with your cleaner in it. Any restaurant equipment will clean up alot easier if you have it on low or 200 degrees...including the outside of the unit. For super built on crud, they have sprays also you could spray up inside the flue area, that will eat away that grease build up. You will have to clean that out however, and they also carry brushes if you need one of those to reach it... It will take some elbow grease, and some patience, but we clean up equipment all the time that normal people would look at and throw away. When we're done with it, it looks brand new again... Good luck.. Susan 888-542-5959.

Pilot does not turn on. Fryer was in use n working perfectly. We turned pilot off cause fryer was not gonna be in use. so now pilot does not turn on.


Make sure the high limit isnt tripped. There is a red button down next to the thermostat that you push to reset the high limit. If it will not light after that it is probably a bad thermocouple - This is the sensor located in the pilot flame.
Make sure it is well positioned in the pilot flame. If not adjust it into the flame, if so replace it. They are generally available at your local hardware store because they are also used in water heaters and home furnaces. They are pretty cheap and fairly easy to change. It ususally requires that you remove one or two of the main burners for easy access. Empty the grease first just to be safe. Remove the nut from the top of the drain valve handle and remove the handle. Look to the top of the main burner or burners in front of the pilot and there are two bolts on each burner that need to be loosened (not removed) and then lift the burner to remove the bolts from the slots and pull the burner down and out. Remove and replace the sensor (should be fairly straight forward), Replace the burners and valve handle, refill with grease, and try to light it again.

I usually boil water in mine to clean it out. I let it boil for one full timer. To clean the outside I just use Windex and some elbow grease. Hopes this helps.

Cleaning


From http://www.rivalproducts.com/help.aspx?helpNav=1: How can I clean my fryer? - Unplug from outlet and allow unit to cool. Always turn control to OFF then disconnect plug from wall outlet BEFORE disconnecting BREAK-AWAY CORD. - Clean the outside of the fryer and lid with a damp cloth. CAUTION: Do not use abrasive pads or alcohol to clean the fryer. - Remove basket handle, if one is included. Frying basket can be washed in hot soapy water. - Rinse and towel dry carefully. - Pour out oil and discard properly. - Wipe the inside with paper towels to absorb excess grease. Wash interior of fryer with hot soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. CAUTION: Never immerse the fryer in water or wash in running water. If you own a fryer with a removable bowl or other removable parts, refer to the Owner?s Guide for your specific fryer to determine which parts can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
