Commercial kitchens are high-pressure work environments. On the one hand, workers need to keep up with demand from customers for delicious meals, and on the other hand, they have to maintain the correct health and safety standards to ensure that nobody is injured. Kitchens are busy places, filled with sharp objects, hot surfaces, open fires and hot oil. The last thing you need as a restaurant owner during a dinnertime rush is for your deep fryer to catch fire.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) conducted a study and found that an average of 7,410 fires break out in eating and drinking establishments every year. When they crunched the numbers, they found that property damages from fires amount to an average of $165 million per year, not to mention the deaths and injuries caused by these fires. The NFPA also determined that cooking equipment causes over 60% of fires in restaurants, with deep fryers being the main culprits.

How often should you clean your deep fryer?
There are three types of cleaning that your commercial deep fryer needs. First is exterior cleaning to remove dirt and oil splashes, which should be done at least once per day, more if your restaurant is very busy. Second is interior cleaning, where you will need to drain the oil and use a chemical cleaner, which should be done at least once a week, if not daily. Last is boil-out cleaning, which is a deep-cleaning method that only needs to be done once a month.
