Fryer oil storage containers are essential equipment for any commercial kitchen. In the fryer cleaning and oil filtration process you need to store the used and spent oil and easily move it around as needed as effectively as possible.
Safety is a huge factor when it comes to handling boiling hot cooking oil. There have been countless horror stories about foodservice staff suffering from severe burns due to kitchens dropping the ball on health and safety protocols and cutting corners with their equipment. An example of what can happen can be read in this article where a McDonald’s worker slips and falls onto a bucket of boiling oil suffering severe burns to her arms and legs.
Oil storage and transportation pots and pails need to not only be food compatible, but also have all the necessary safety features in place to avoid accidents. MirOil have specifically designed their range of filter pots and utility pails with just that in mind and have produced one of the safest ranges of oil storage containers on the market.
MirOil have 2 kinds of storage containers available: Utility and measuring pails, and filter pots. Both can be used for safe storage AND transportation but the pails are specially designed for transportation and storage, and the pots are specially designed for use in the filtration process
For the safe storage and transport of hot oil
The MirOil utility pails safely store and transport deep fryer oil and are designed to make the task of transporting hot oil easy and, most importantly, safe. These MirOil utility pails are not under-counter and are designed specifically for transporting hot oil, but it still makes for a good filtering vessel regardless.
These MirOil oil storage pails also have a heat shield tilting handle on the top that moves easily and also handles on the sides. The combination of handles helps you to easily carry a full load of fryer oil and also pour the hot oil out comfortably without burning your hands or arms.
For safe storage, you can engage the quick-lock clips mounted on the pail to create a super tight seal.
MirOil utility pails come in 2 models:
The model with a measuring gauge includes a graduated gauge to measure 5 gallons of oil in ½ gallon increments, making it easy to perform storage and measurement tasks at the same time.
If used for filtering, the MirOil CONE2B filter bag and D size frame fits perfectly on top
For filtering and safer handling of hot oil
Miroil has specifically designed these pots for use in the oil filtering process and, like the utility pails, are also great overall for the safe handling of hot oil. They feature an anti-splash lid and quick lock clips to prevent splashing and reduce the risk of getting burned.
The Miroil filter pots have a low profile to fit under most drain valves so that you can easily drain the contents of your deep fryer directly into the pot. The MirOil B6PS filter bag and frame assembly is designed to fit perfectly over these pots.
The MirOil filter pots are made from ultra-durable and rust-resistant coated steel which can hold oil up to 300 degrees.
