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!

    I love it, very easy to clean and easy to use. Very good price for this size fryer. I bought it almost 2 years and I highly recommended. Amparo L.
    Purchased this fryer several months ago and I have never regretted it!.The price was right too! Have not had any issues with it. Excellent product
    Good quality, as described on the image, helpful customer service and fast shipping. Will buy again merchandise from here. Thank you much for your service.
    We love this fryer! It is easy to use and clean! There is little compartment underneath the oil where you can adjust the heat, it heats up fast too! So happy with this purchase!
    Works great. It is as big as the one I got at my local restaurant supply company 2 years ago but the price was much less. Excellent quality
    Works great easy to use. Just a little to small to store my oil. Got a good deal would not regret buying this. Ten out of ten recommend this
    this fryer only lasts for 2 years. then we start to get all kinds of problems. especially the starting process, it just painful. we are lucky cuz we have a second fryer as a backup plan. this fryer sitting there for 3 months now wait to be repaired.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    This is one great fryer! For the price, you cannot beat it. It is durable and easy to clean, what more can you ask for in a commercial setting??
    This is an unbelievable value. This fryer greatly exceeded my expectations. Extremely easy to clean and maintain. It operates flawlessly and gets to temperature very quickly.
    not a bad price there’s a little bit of assembly takes about a half hour to put together only issue I had was a leaky shut off valve where are you drain the oil. However it was covered under warranty and did not cost anything to have fixed
    Bought this fryer 15 days ago. Its now 1-10-2020, so we've had this since Dec 26. It arrived crated, but never worked from the first day. Still, 15 days later it does not work and no one seems to care! By the time it actually gets up and running it will be two and half weeks. A minimum of one hundred dollars per day is lost in revenue do to it not working. We are a small restaurant and cannot afford this expense for a dead horse and the subsequent lost revenue. I asked for a new one but they refused. So you all know, you cannot contact the manufacturer and they turn you over to a company, who has people answer the phone who do not work for them. They turn around and contact a company to come out to repair and you will not know who until they arrive.
    We appreciate your review, Donald. We wish this Avantco FF300 Natural Gas 40 lb. Stainless Steel Floor Fryer would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    Great fryer. This bad boy can hold a lot also. Easy to use and change out the oil. Great price point on this as well.
    I love this equipment! Cleaning is a bit of a hassle and I have a hard time igniting the pilot light on a weekly basis when I clean, but when it's lit, it does exactly what I need it to do!
    Great fryer. it gets up to temp fast (12min). a little hard to clean but then again they all are. simple easy to use controls. dont hesitate to buy.
    I purchased this fryer for my restaurant and it works really great. I can cook a large batch of fish at one time. I will be buying a second one.
    Item is as advertised on their website. Item was easy to assemble. Fryer baskets was packaged do they would not be damaged. Items look good.
    We love the way this fryer works alongside our other cooking equipment! The storage for the drain pipe is different than we've seen and we LOVE it - much easier access than most. The two different levels for draining grease are great and nice for different food products (the lower level tips the basket at an angle, while the upper level keeps it flat). Heats grease quickly and efficiently.
    My husband says this is one of the best fryers he had ever worked with, and he's been in the cooking industry for over 20 years. Will definitely purchase this again if we ever need a new fryer.
    Great fryer for general purposes. Our restaurant does not fry a lot of food, so the size is great. I would recommend a larger fryer if you are an establishment that does a lot of frying of foods
