Customer Q&AAsk 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.

I'm not happy with this purchase unfortunately. I purchased three of these units, and 1 of them came severely dented... but I was able to straighten it out by jumping on it. (No joke) The legs don't level very nicely, so they're off-kilt, and I had to put wood under one of them to stay super level..... which is ridiculous. The pilot light must be on CRAZY high in order to even work, otherwise it turns off - which is EXTREMELY annoying. I prefer to leave my pilot light lit all night long, when I come in the morning, the oil is still kind of warm, because the pilot light is SO high.... you can actually hear the pilot light working, unlike any other fryer I've used; and ALL three do this, so it's not a defect in one, it's a defect in the product. Read More

I wouldn't recommend these fryers, I purchased 2 of them both only lasted about a year. You will have issues with the thermostats/thermocouples and not keeping temperature for the grease, On my food truck mid shift this happened and I was unable to use the fryer. You will also have pilot light issues. I tried to repair them with new gas valves and new thermostats/thermocouples and still had issues with the fryer staying on during a shift and working properly.

Carl R. from Big C Waffles on 06/20/2021

Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.

I've ordered 3 of these units over the past 3 years. We have had a couple issues with thermostats/thermocouples going out but it's a cheap and easy fix. I'd buy them again in the future.

Devin S. from The Digs on 06/15/2021

we have had 2 of these for 2 years now. they have performed flawlessly and have not required and additional service besides oil change. they do get dirty and could use a good pressure washing in and out every 2 years or so.

Richard S. from The Rabbit Hole on 10/19/2020

We purchased this fryer for our food truck after purchasing two of the natural gas fryers for our restaurant. They are wonderful even though they are inexpensive.

Dallas S. on 02/15/2020

I purchased 2 of Avantco FF400 propane fryers for my food truck. I haven't had a chance to use them yet because I'm still building the food truck.

Arthur S. from My Madea's Cookin on 11/18/2019

This fryer works great! This is the addition to my hundred pound unit. Two of them are great side by side. They both recover fast and they are great units. Only have them for a few months so far so let's see they hold up!

I purchased one for my food truck in May 2018. At the time we were only using the food truck part time, 1-3 times per week. In November 2018 fryer would not hold the pilot. When i called i the warranty they made me deliver it to the closest service shop, 1.5 hours a way. The service shop had problems getting the parts from the manufacturer. I didnt get the fryer back until Jan 2019. Worked fine at the time. Since then we use the food truck 4-6 days a week and here we are in April 2019 with the same problem as before. Now the warranty company is making me send them a copy of invoice, even though my fryer is already in there system. They tried to tell me the 1 year warranty expired in Jan 2019. If you are looking for a long term fryer dont get this one. Ive worked in restaurants my whole life and never seen this many problems with a new piece of equipment.

Daniel S. from Rico Cuisine Inc on 04/29/2019

The avantco FF400 50 lb. fire is a great big for the price. It has a great recovery time and is simple to use and install.

Joel P. from Padilla on 11/21/2017

I was so impressed with the first one I purchased, I bought a second. I have used Vulcan fryers of the same, and this fryer does it better and for a lot less money! I am so pleased with this product and purchase.

Catherine W. from BW Industries LLC on 06/22/2017

I have this on my food truck and it is a total beast! It heats so fast and makes a great product! It is easy to clean, unlike my other fryer (an Imperial). When I am able, I will be replacing my 2nd fryer with another one of these. It's a great product and I couldn't be happier!

Jim G. from Jimmy G's BBQ on 02/04/2017

We purchased (3) Avantco FF400 Fryers for our new restaurant and am pleased with the product construction. Avancto offers a cheaper price point than some of the other manufacturers with comparable quality.

Randy S. on 12/03/2016

If your looking for a deep fryer that's easy to set-up & easy to use....This is it. Webstaurant offers this model at a great price that won't "break the bank". Love it !

Karen J. on 11/27/2016

Great fryer. This is perfect for getting the most bang for your buck. It doesn't take up a ton of room, but can still do a ton of work.

Perry F. from Charleston Sports Pub on 10/28/2016

Bought this fryer back in April and I have no complaints. This fryer keeps up with the high demand we put on it. I clean and change the oil every one to two weeks. Heats up fast, easy to hook up. If business keeps going the way it is I will definitely be getting another one.

Rose F. from Abbiocco Eatery Llc. on 08/22/2016

This fryer it the perfect size for my food truck. It heats up very quickly and the thermostat is easy to access. I also is easy to drain.

Tina C. from Chef On The Run LLC on 05/07/2016

We bought 2 of these fryers, they heat up quickly and maintain temperature well. Turn temp down between lunch and dinner if you have a down time to save on propane.

Tim T. from Flying Fish Restaurant, Freeport, Bahamas on 04/07/2016

Run of the mill fryer, works great if maintained well. If you have a little bit extra to spend I would go a step up, but if in a crunch will get the job done.

Johnny Z. from Twig & Marrow, LLC on 03/08/2016

i bought this fryer for my concession trailer its great size and has the power to get the job done its fast fryer you should buy it know

Rosalba M. from Bocadillos Frozen Desserts on 02/25/2016

We purchased this seven months ago. The unit works as advertised. We make fresh cut French fries that are 3/8" cut. They take approximately five minutes to cook. We also make our own hand-breaded chicken fried steak. They take approximately four minutes to cook. I feel this is an excellent fryer for the price. I would recommend purchasing this brush http://www.webstaurantstore.com/carlisle-4011100-23-fryer-brush-with-l-tip-teflon-174-bristles/27140111.html because it is impossible to clean between the tubes without it.

Lander C. from Lander Catering on 02/12/2016

Here it is, the heavy-duty, one stop shop for all things frying related. Small enough to tuck away in a corner of the kitchen, but large enough to get he job done and fry up some french fries. Yum!!

David B. from THE MULE BARN SPORTS GRILL on 01/21/2016

Great price for a great fryer. Works as well or better than our higher priced fryer. Shop used equipment and auctions, only to find overpriced, DIRTY junk.

Anita W. from Anita's Candy And Jam on 01/19/2016

I buy this deep fryer for my seafood restaurant,it is easy to use,good quality,working fast and easy to clean,im happy with this item no complaine!

Luigi C. from Dal Maestro on 10/10/2015


Willie M. on 06/08/2015

Best fryer for the price. I bought 2 of these and will buy one more soon. Great quality. delivered fast and the driver even brought it right to the door and helped unpack

Scott W. from Bagel Basket Cafe on 04/05/2015

We bought 2 of these fryers and are very satisfied with them. Fast shipping and set up was a breeze. Compared to other, higher priced models these were worth it. We would buy Advantco models for any other needs as well.

Brian B. from B-4 Investments LLC Dba Wallys on 07/07/2014

The Avantco FF400 50lb stainless steel floor fryer is a great fryer to have at any resaurant. This fryer gets the job done and you can control what temperature you want it at. We have two and use one to hold hot water
