Have we changed the oil a day early? Have we changed the oil a day late? How do you know?
Conservatively, that decision can cost you in the neighborhood of $1,000 annually.
Using 3M Oil Test Strips will give you an accurate verification of when to change the fryer oil.
3M Oil Test Strips are a reliable independant verification of the quality of your cooking oil. The 3M Strips measure the FFA or free fatty acids of the vegetable oil. 3M Oil Test Strips are provided with every Frylow Trial.
For financial and quality of fried product factors, cooking oil must be changed at the appropriate time. Fryer oil quality must be determined by the taste, consistency, and color of the food served. Your customer rely on this.
Since Frylow doubles fryer oil life with lower cooking times and temperatures, the use of the 3M® strips provides an accurate, independant, and scientific approach to judging fryer oil quality.
Safety Comes 1st.
Wearing heat resistance protective gloves, use metal tongs to grab the white tip of the 3M Test Strip.
The oil should be tested at the specified Frylow cooking temperature. (340-345F)
Never re-use a test strip. Throw away after use.
Dip a new strip into the cooking oil so that all four of the blue bands are fully submerged in the oil for 5-seconds and then remove.
Within 30-seconds, one or more of the bands will change color, indicating the degree of breakdown of the cooking oil.
The strips have four colored bands which progressively change from blue to yellow as the oil deteriorates.
