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.

Avantco Floor Fryers

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

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!

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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Avantco makes the best fryers in the business, can't beat the price either, i was hesitant at first but my repairman highly recommended them, these were a great purchase.
    Easy to install, took him about 30min. Everything work good so far , for that price , work as same as you pay the over thousand one , why not , I am happy with it so far
    fast shipped and easy to install. Once we had it hooked to gas line, we were up and running within 15 minutes. has a great recovery time and able to keep up with high demand.
    Does its job of frying. I would not recommend if you have a lot of customers. I would recommend a different brand for high volume.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    No problems. Great for its price, and works well it a mid-volume restaurant, when we need a bit more compacity and will likely order another.
    Unit arrived in less than 48 hours. Driver brought it all the way into my store (all though I believe he went above and beyond what was required of him) Installed in 5 minutes, and looking good. It heats up in less time that the old pitco that it replaced, seen here with her surviving twin (ad me’ah v’’Esrim). So far very happy. Hint: half the bolts/nuts for the feeet come in a bag, and half already attached.

    These floor fryer work great in our restaurant which kicks out a lotnof fried food on a daily. We have two side by side and they heat up oil quick!
    The natural gas Stainless steel floor fryer works great and is easy to clean and filter out the existing oil. It fry items anywhere from 200 degrees to 400 degrees.
    Best price in town. Easy to maneuver and good size for what we need. Ordered two of these. Easy to keep clean and looks great.
    We are a lower volume restaurant and the only fried items we have are fries and sweet potato fries. So this is perfect for us. It’s small so if we add to the fried menu, we’ll have to get another one.
    Awesome fyer. Made very well. Bought as a second fryer to our kitchen. Arrived in a timely manner and no damage. Highly recommend this fyer, fair price.
    Great Fryer for the Money. We own a fryer that is almost twice the price and they basically perform the same. Good by for sure.
    Works great for us, the unit heats quickly and is easy to use and read. Do not have any complaints and we have had 2 of these for 2 years.
    We were on a budget and this was the perfect item to meet that. It works perfectly! It meet all of our standards for a much lesser prices then others.
    I purchased this for our kitchen. Its easy to keep clean and strong and easy to move around. If you wipe it clean after using it your good.
    Very nice Deep Fryer, Looks good, well made, Sturdy. Baskets are very strong. Easy to clean. A great buy, I would Highly recommend this model. I bought 2 Avantco Deep Fryers. Very Happy.
    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.
    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.
    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
    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!!
    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.
    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!
    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
    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.
    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
