Customer Q&A Ask a Question

My business is at a high elevation; does this change anything when I order gas cooking equipment?
Many gas equipment manufacturers need to make adjustments to the equipment so it operates correctly at elevations over 2,000 feet. Sometimes we can special order from the manufacturer and have your cooking equipment delivered ready-to-go, but in cases where your unit is in stock and waiting to ship, you’ll need to have a qualified service technician come to your location and alter your unit at the time of installation so that it is compatible with a higher elevation. Contact our Special Orders team prior to placing your order, and we will let you know what will work best for the equipment you are planning to purchase.

How to Light a Pilot Light

If your range, oven, or fryer aren't lighting properly, check out our step-by-step guide on How to Light a Pilot Light.

If you find that your gas equipment isn't lighting or turning on properly, it could mean that the pilot light has gone out. This is a fairly common occurrence in busy commercial kitchens, particularly in high traffic areas or near frequently used doors. Follow these step-by-step instructions to learn how to relight a pilot light on some of the most common pieces of commercial kitchen equipment. As always, be sure to consult your owner's manual to ensure that you're using the manufacturer's instructions when preforming any type of maintenance on your equipment. If at any time you suspect that there is a gas leak in your facility or if you smell a very strong gas odor, call your gas provider immediately. Do not attempt to light a flame or turn on an electric switch until the problem is addressed. To light a range: Light the pilot with a lighter. To light an oven: Hold down the reset button and press the igniter a few times. To light a fryer: Turn the knob to pilot, press and hold the knob, and light the pilot. Continue to hold the knob for 30 seconds and then turn the knob to "on".

How to Boil-Out a Deep Fryer

Watch this video to learn how to perform a boil-out to keep your fryer clean! Complete the procedure frequently to save your business valuable time and money.

As oil prices continue to rise, it's important to take advantage of products that allow you to use less oil. Using Frypowder filter aids and oil stabilizers can cut down on the amount of oil used, ultimately saving you time and money. But if you don't properly clean your fryer beforehand, it’s like throwing all that money down the drain! You should always start your fryer oil stabilizer regimen with a clean fryer that’s been boiled out to make sure all dirt and debris has been removed. Otherwise, you may have proteins, polar contaminants, and other matter that will start to contaminate the new oil immediately when added. That will break down the oil quicker, leaving you to change the oil more frequently and ultimately costing you more time and money! This video will show you the proper steps to ensure that your fryer is ready for use by using Noble Chemical Tempest Deep Fat Fryer Cleaner, a high temp fryer brush, and a fryer clean out rod. I will also show you how to safely discard your used oil once you have determined it is no longer usable. Don’t forget to check out our video on MirOil’s fryer oil test strips to help take the guesswork out of knowing when to change or filter your oil. Noble Chemical Tempest Deep Fat Fryer Cleaner is easy to use and thoroughly eliminates all encrusted grease and grime. Just follow these simple steps! Drain all grease from the fryer and safely discard grease using an oil caddy and an approved used oil discard container. Use the fryer clean out rod to clean any remaining debris out of the drain line. Rinse the fryer with hot water to remove excess, un-drained fat. For a fryer holding approximately 30 lbs. of fats or oils, fill with cool water to within 3 to 4 inches of the top. Add 8 ounces of Tempest to the cold water. Boil slowly for 20 minutes. Use proportionately, using more or less depending upon the size of the fryer. After termination of boiling, allow the fryer to drain slowly and use a long handled, heavy duty brush to clean the sides, top, heating elements, and other parts of the fryer. Then rinse thoroughly to remove all residue. For future cleaning operations, less boiling time is required to perform this cleaning operation and the amount of Tempest used may be cut in half. Thanks for watching, and be sure to check out all of the oil filtration equipment and accessories on our website!

Avantco Floor Fryers

Learn about the features and benefits an Avantco floor fryer brings to your business!

Fried foods are profitable foods, and Avantco floor fryers are great additions to any restaurant. They’re high quality and high performance fryers at a low price. These tube style fryers feature fast recovery times so you can keep up during your busiest hours. The stainless steel VAT construction and stainless steel front will stand up to the most demanding environments. Avantco offers three different floor fryers. The FF400, which holds 50 pounds. The FF518, which holds 70-100 pounds. And the FF300, which holds 40 pounds. The 40 pound fryer has 3 tubes that generate 90,000 BTUs, whereas the 50 pound fryer has 4 tubes and puts out 120,000 BTUs. If that is still not enough, the 70-100 pound fryer has 5 tubes that produce up to 150,000 BTUs! Because these tube are fully submerged in the oil, they are more efficient and have a faster recovery than open VAT fryers. Tube fryers, like these Avantco units, have a large cold zone. So they are also great for heavily breaded foods like chicken and fish. This type of fryer is also ideal for when frequent filtrating is not possible, because tube fryers can contain more sediment. In addition, these fryers are equipped with Invensys thermostat controls which gives you precise temperature control. Each fryer comes with 2 nickel chrome wire mesh baskets with plastic coated handles. A 1 ¼ ball type full port drain is located in the front of the unit and quickly drains the oil during filtration or removal. These fryers have more options that are available like; casters, gas hoses, fryer covers, splash guards, and connector strips. When purchasing a fryer we highly recommend buying a quick disconnect hose to make hooking up the fryer even easier. Keeping your fryer clean is extremely important. To do that, we recommend using Tempest Deep Fat Fryer Cleaner to keep your Avantco floor fryer spotless and to help prolong the life of your oil. These units are both CSA Sanitation listed and are backed by a 1 year parts and manufacturer’s warranty. Thanks for watching, and if you have any questions, please use our live chat button!

    After repeatedly having issues with the propane fryer, lack of cooperation and communication with the warranty company, I can no longer recommend this fryer. Spend the extra money and buy something better-and from a different brand.

    This product works well for our business. It is a great value for the price. It has a the features we were looking for and it's the right size for our food trailer.

    from The Crab Stop Posted on

    This fryer was an emergency purchase and shipped within a day. The quality is excellent and we will order another of these in the next year to replace our other aging fryer.

    Posted on

    Works great! oil gets very hot and is the perfect size to fry French fries, fish, chicken or whatever. We fry up fresh chips and French fries. The size is perfect! The dial is easy to use also which is good for the perfect temperature setting.

    Avantco Fryers are Heavy Duty and also provide quick recovery. Nice Economical Fryer and easy to install. Fits Great Inside Most Mobile Kitchens or Concession Trailers!

    from Hurricane Concessions & Rentals, LLC Posted on

    I can only give 4 stars because when we received the fryer, the thermopile was broken (apparently a common problem in fryers) and we had to have it serviced. Very frustrating when you need it now. We managed a back up plan so waiting to get it fixed worked out. Avantco company was very helpful as well as Webstaurant Store. Since getting it fixed, it works great!

    from Christ Community Church Posted on

    Like this fryer. Definitely worth buying. Easy to use. Takes time to clean, however that's ok for this type of equipment. Specialist needed to install.

    Posted on

    I got this fryer 1.5 years ago for my food cart and it has worked really well but recently started giving me trouble (burning rich and sooting up everything) and basically none of the service companies in town has even heard of Avantco - even the company that Avantco told me to call. It's great for it's price but it is in essence a no-name brand. I'll probably just scrap the one I have and get something a little higher end for myself.

    from Antevasin Foods, LLC Posted on

    The Product was shipped fully packed and worked very good we had no issues with using the equipment for our venue that we attend this past week. Thanks again

    from JBW VENDING, LLC Posted on

    I bought 2 of these for our start-up business. I was a little worried about getting the both tube fryers because of big particles possibly getting stuck in the one I was not using for French fries, but open pot fryers are so much more $. I was told to just put a different metal grate on the bottom with smaller holes. So much more cost effective! These look nice and seem easy to clean

    from Ellen Renees LLC Posted on

    Solid fryer for the price. Three tube fryers like this are hard to keep clean on the bottom though. Great for special uses and medium duty, not ideal for places that do tons of wings or floured goods, and clean fryers daily.

    Posted on

    i bought two of the 40 lb fryers for my food truck. Fit perfectly side by side of each other and when I turned on the burners, the fryers quickly reached the temperature I set it to. Would recommend this because of its affordability and quality.

    from Bumblebees BBQ & Grill Posted on

    Great price that's why I got it runs great when you can keep it on call company sent me to parts had problem with manufacturing wanting to sent right part to fix it they are trying to get it worked out I hope I have events coming up I need it to work

    from REX'S CALZONES Posted on

    Just starting out with the kitchen in my bar and it is keeping up nicely. Heats up well and easy to clean for now it keeps up with the orders. I will be buying another {maybe 2).

    from Henry's Hideout/ Robert Lee Yandell Posted on

    Great deep fryer! We loved the first one so much, we decided to buy a second one. It is so easy to clean and looks nice in the kitchen.

    from diaz Posted on

    It is the best value you can purchase. But just so you know, without a stainless inside or well it can definentely be harder to keep clean. Works great when your on a budget though!

    from Unami sushi Posted on

    This is a great fryer!! We purchased this equipment as an extra fryer to keep up with the increasing load of orders in our restaurant. It certainly did come in handy. It's just the right size for the size of our kitchen. Great product!!
