Certainly, you can use a specially designed wire brush for cleaning the tubes... We sell them ourseles, however first I would recommend using a product called Deep Fat Fryer Cleaner. It comes in either a liquid or a powder, and is mixed with water, directly in the stainless frypot itself. You then turn up the heat, and boil the mixture for awhile. There will be directions on the product....You fryer brush is shaped like a small L so you can reach all around the tube area and in the drain area as well. By using the boil out product first, you will loosen up all that baked on crud and get rid of some of it, and keep in mind, that with commercial equipment and the crud that builds up.... You have to get the equipment warm before you can effectively clean it. A griddle must be turned o n to warm, a fryer also. Be sure when you are done, to rinse all the soap **** out of the ss pot. If not, you will ruin the next batch of oil that you use and with the price of that stuff, you don't want to take a chance on doing that. I also recommend a fryer additive from Miroil... It keeps you from ever dumping a whole vat of oil again. You can go online and look over the product information, and if you are interested, I can give you pricing, as it comes in a powder or a liquid. It keeps your product golden all week long, no golden brown at the lst of the week and darker product as the week goes on... You will have consistent golden brown product all week long, period... Miroil also recommends keeping your oil temp to 325 or below... Most people use 350 and it's too hot and ends up burning up the oil. That and the soap **** not getting rinsed out completely are what deteriates your oil and runis it. Those brushes are manufactured to take high heat without hurting them and they run $23.50 each. I also have straight brushes too. The miroil additive runs $29.95 a litre bottle, which will do 55 applications for a 50# fryer. (You use different amounts for different size fryers, and it makes a difference on how many days a week you are open and how many hours the fryers are on). A 3 pack runs $88.95. I also have the powder deep fat fryer cleaner, which comes in a 9 lb jug, for $11.95. I also carry Mr. Muscle individual liquid packets of deep fat fryer clean for $1.95 each. You just dump one in the fryer, along with your water and boil it, then rinse well.
