I have had 8 pitco gas self-filtering fryers for
Two things when you clean out the pots.....Number one is, make sure you rinse all the soap or cleaning solution out really well, and I mean WELL... any left over residue will ruin your new oil, and number two, your oil temp should never be above 325, especially with new oil.... Sounds like you are burning your oil up with too high of a temperature. Actually, there is another option here too,
have you ever tried a fryer additive? Like Miroil is one....? You add this liquid prior to lunch or dinner, according to how much oil is in the fryer, how many hours a day the fryer is on and how many days a week you are open....Anyway, if you are interested, we could help you with the formula, and from that point on, you never dump a whole vat of oil again. Each day, you would drain off a pre-measured amount of oil, and lets say you have a chicken fryer, and a fish fryer. You would drain off the chicken fryer and dump into the fish fryer, and put the same exact amount back into the chicken fryer of new oil. It might be a 2 cup measurement or alittle more, but the point is by freshing your fryer each day, you will never dump it all out again. They also recommend oil temp at 325, no higher, and making sure all soap residue is rinsed out completely before adding any oil.
By doing this, your oil will look golden all week long, and you will no longer have the darker oil as the week goes by, with the really dark, crappy stuff right before you end up dumping it...Hence, your products will always look the same too, light golden, absorb alot less grease during cooking, and again, that's all week long, not just first part of the week....If you are interested in trying the additive, I can price you some, or you can go online yourself? Not one person I have ever set up on this additive program has ever complained or stopped using it so far...They love it, and it really works.
If you have new thermostats and a high limit switch, you might have had a bad thermostat before, and your temperature was really alittle lower with the older one? Now, that you have a new one, and it's working correctly, maybe that 350 is too hot? If the other one was bad, and running alittle less hot, say 300 or 325 all along, and you just never knew it, now you have one that's registering your temperature at the correct reading and it's too hot? Or, another scenerio could be your tech installed a bad thermostat? That happens too, where a new thermostat is actually bad to start with, and maybe it's off alittle the other way? LIke 350 is actually 450? If you have other questions, or are interested in the additive, my name is Susan, with Restaurant Equipment Outlet, 888-542-5959 and I would be happy to asist you in any way, and I'd love to know what you end up finding out on your fryers....
