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 long does it take this fryer to ship?
*Because this fryer is stocked in WebstaurantStore warehouses, we are able ship orders placed before 12:00 PM EST on Monday through Friday within 4 hours. Due to carrier pick up schedules, any orders placed after that time will ship the following day.

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!

    Have bought two in the last two years one pan cracked after a year the other one come apart and started a fire in the kitchen after 3 months. We are getting rid of these and purchasing another brand. Don't recommend
    Thank you for your feedback, Michael! We are sorry this fryer has not worked for you. A Customer Solutions Representative is currently working with you on this issue.

    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!

    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.
    We appreciate your review, Stefanie! If you are having any issues with the product you have purchased, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    we have two of these 40 lb fryers and we work them hard but they just keep on working. we are looking at a bigger one for another food truck we are building just based off of their reliability
    I started a food truck business with two Avantco FF300 fryers. The fryers are very easy to use, durable and keep the oil temps perfectly. In fact, I just purchased my third FF300. I haven’t had an ounce of trouble from these, and I’d highly recommend them to anyone needing a solid fryer that gets the job done at an affordable price.
    This is a exceptional product! Its great looking, well put together and functions as expected! I am very pleased with my purchase. Very fast shipping
    I got these for a FOODTRUCK and they are a perfect fit. They hold up perfectly and heatup on point. I have yet to have issues with them after close to 2 years. I use them for wings and fries and other snacks. I highly recommend these fryers
    Great product! Came fast in a couple days! Easy to assemble. Bought the connections it says fits but didn’t so waste of money didn’t get to send it back
    Thank you for your review, Dario! We are sorry the connections for the Avantco FF300 Liquid Propane 40 lb. Stainless Steel Floor Fryer have not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    Muy buen servicio buenas atenciones a pesar de no saber mucho inglés me atendieron muy bien el producto en muy bien estado y rápidos ala hora de entrega
    Excellent unit does exactly what I expected. Very good fryer highly recommend . I never have to wonder if I'm going to be able to cook at my best when I know I have the Avantco fryer installed.
    I have one of these in a food trailer and 2 in a restaurant and they all work well and keep heated when busy. Cheaper but work just as good
    Great unit ??..have had no issues and keeps up with daily demands. We cook fish products with it and seems to keep the correct tempature. The cost was a bonus! Thanks webstarant!
    This fryer is a BEAST! we do have propane in our store and let me tell you, it handles and performs like no other. We go through A LOT of deep fried foods and i couldnt be happier.
    This fryer was half the price of our other fryer but works great! We will be ordering more for our concession business. Avanco also sells casters for this fryer if you need to move/transport the fryer often. Awesome brand, awesome fryer! Thanks again!
    This stainless steel floor fryer is great at holding temperature and being able to keep up with large orders. The sides are easy to clean as long as they are maintained daily.
    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.
    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.
    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.
