This product is too good to be true for the price! I bought 3!!! They heat up fast, cook food quick and are easy to clean! I would recommend having the lids for safety and cleanliness.

Purchased 2 of these fryers. One for fries and the other for our fried chicken. Performance on these fryers are great. Heat up fairly quick and does a great job of frying the food. This fryer take about 105 gallons of oil to fill up to the max level. It take about 30-45 minutes to change the oil and clean the fryer properly with cleaning chemical.
These fryers are great little workhorses. We fry a tremendous amount of chicken and fish in our buffet restaurant and these Avantco fryers never miss a bit. They may not last quite as long as the more expensive fryers, but their very low price point makes replacing them much less painful. Highly recommended.
Purchased this fryer to replace an electric fryer. We cook a high volume of french fries and this fryer recoups temp and cooks extremely well.
This fryer is a beast. We use this primarily for fried chicken dropped dry. The sediments collect well on the bottom and do not contaminate or burn the rest of the oil. Easy to clean and gets up to temperature fast.
The fryer has been a great addition to our restaurant. It cooks the food very well and efficiently. I would highly recommend this fryer to anyone that cooks a large amount of food.
Great large 70lb fryer. And worth the upgrade from the 45llb fryers. I would definitely go bigger rather than smaller in a start up restaurant
Great buy for the money. They work perfectly and not too hard to clean. The only draw back is the control knobs, the numbers wear off pretty quick.
Buenísima me encanta fríe muy bien y rápido y el precio super bien para ser la calidad que es modo de limpieza me encanto super cómoda.
Works like a champ, Good !
You have to aware it. 1. Poor quality product - Product is leaking when i got this unit just pour some water in fryer pot for test. 2. Horrible customer service - webrestaurant.com and readykitchenwrranty.com needs unit install with professional guy then go next step of warranty but, this leaking issue don't need it with specialist's confirm. 3. Return change is to high(20% restock fee and shipping)
We appreciate your review, Harumi. We wish this product would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
Overall nice unit , but what they fail to tell you is the unit does NOT come with gas regulator so we had to order them someplace else so it delayed start up.
ITs a decent fryer, although to be specifically honest the food usually gets trap on the side due to not making the bottom tray larger.
A perfect addition to our kitchen. Easy to clean, move and filter everyday. Fits in between our other fryers. Heats up quick and does not lose temperature.
We love this fryer! Very reasonable and competitive price compared to other fryers. We fry chicken, tenders, churros and other delicious foods. It works wonders. Highly Recommend!
We use this frying everyday for cooking our fry food. It can use for fried chickens, dumplings, shrimp tempura, fried tofu, or food items that you want to fry. It is definitely recommended item for restaurant.
This is very good product for the price offered...this is beast..it keeps up with our very busy restaurant..and has no or quick recovery time between products..
This fryer handled like a champ! It’s easy to lite and perfect larger size works great for high output food serving! We never had to wait for oil to reheat we didn’t have to worry about temperatures not being right. This fryer worked 18 hour days for 15 days straight and had no issues!
This is not a review on the product, I'm trying to purchase two of these fryers I need to know the oil capacity of individual fryer.
Great fryer! I bought one for my first store and when I opened up the second I knew exactly which fryer I was going to buy!
The best price around for this size fryer. Even with the shipping, the cost was less than anywhere else that we looked, performs great also
We love the size of this fryer. We make fresh chips everyday and this is perfect . Easy to clean and easy to use . Everttything you want in a fryer
A super high quality fryer that you should expect to pay much more for. Performs well, and has a very accurate thermostat. These should last for decades with the proper care, and compare to more recognized brands!
Love this Deep Fryer. Larger than a regular Deep Fryer. Works great for heavy traffic. Cooks a lot of French fries. Nice looking and easy to clean. Cant go wrong with this Deep Fryer. I bought 2 Deep Fryers from Avantco, Love them Both.
This is a very average fryer. The price is excellent! Fryers are all stainless steel and metal. Has the same form factor as its competitors for half the price. So far so good after a year of use..
Great fryer. We have not had any issues out of this thing at all. Temp is perfect and regulated as well. Highly recommend this product.
Works great. Doubles the volume of the deep fryer without doubling the space needed to put a deep fryer on the line at the restaurant.
We purchased this fryer for our church. Our congregation has about 650-700 members and we have a lot of functions that require the preparation of food for large groups. This fryer serves that purpose well. I strongly recommend this deep fryer when you have to prepare food for large groups and small groups as well because you can use just one of the baskets.
We are very happy with this fryer! It works great the heat keeps up and never slows down. i would by another one its a great product and the price is good.
Nice size and very easy to use. Pilot stays on so just turn it up when you come in the morning. Nice size for volume frying.
Good light duty fryer. It can get overwhelmed if doing a lot back to back. Fries and tenders take longer than a more heavy duty fryer. If you have multiple fryers I would recommend this one. If this will be your only fryer and you do high volume get a more heavy duty one.
This fryer is great on the line and the temperature is very accurate to the dial setting. Most fryers lose their calibration. This one has lasted us 3 years. Great buy.
This is a large floor style fryer! We love using it to create mouthwatering fried appetizers like fried pickles and mozz sticks!! Easy to clean and filter oil!!
