Fryer Fire Low

QuestionRestaurant Fryer

When I put in a small batch of food in the fryer, the fire is perfectly normal; however, when I fry a large batch, the fire becomes so small that the fryer can’t even heat the food.  Do you think the problem is that the thermostat is bad?  How much would you say that part is?  Thank you.

Hi Amie,

Ok if you are putting in a lot of frozen product at one time it may be that your fryer does not have enough BTU’s to keep up. Even if it is a large amount of thawed product it may still be that your fryer does not have enough BTU’s to handle the quantity.

When you do large quantities it drops the oil temperature so much so quickly that it can not get back to temperature quickly enough to fry properly.

When you fry just a small amount and it works fine then I would say there is nothing wrong with the thermostat.

Hope this helps.
