3M 1010 Details

This 3M standard range fryer oil test strip kit is a great way to measure the shortening breakdown in your fryer. Delivering accurate FFA concentration ratings from 2 to 7 percent, these test strips help save money by preventing premature dumping of fryer oil. Of course, it's also important not to overuse your fryer oil, as that can result in poor food quality. This kit takes all the guesswork out of deciding when to change your oil so you can get the most out of your supply while maintaining consistent products.

To test your fryer oil, use tongs to hold the test strip by the long white end, and dip the test strip into hot oil so all of the blue bands are submerged. Hold the test strip in the oil for 1-2 seconds, then remove it and wait 15 seconds. Next, hold the strip to the light, compare it to the included evaluation guide, and follow the recommendations.

To ensure proper functionality, these test strips should not be stored in humid conditions or in an area where they may be exposed to water or oil before use.

    These strips help us to test the oil and see when to change it. Because sometimes the oil is darker but it still good for use.
    The 3M frying oil test strips are great for testing our fryer oil. The strips are well priced and super easy to use and read the results. A nice product to have on hand if you do a lot of deep frying.
    I can't imagine not having these. It makes it really simple to determine when to change your oil, just trying to eyeball it will never work, and cost you money in the long run. 5 seconds in the hot oil, then 20-30 seconds for the reading. Easy peasy.
    Thought this would revolutionize the fry oil judging process. But actually your senses work better. The fryer oil needs to be changed according to the taste of the food, not the readiness of the oil.
    Takes all the guess work out of when to change our fryer oil Comes with a nice chart, No longer just look at oil and think...maybe we should change.
    These test strips have saved us a lot of time and money - we were either paying for more expensive chemical testing to monitor our oil quality, or we were changing our oil too often. The colors are easy to interpret using the included chart. You still need to use good practices like filtration and topping up, but the test strips help eliminate guesswork.
    These test strips will put you on the money as to how much life that you have left in your fryer oil. They are spot on and will save you money in the long haul.
    We recently purchased these items to test the oil in our deep fryer, it comes with a very handy display chart that you can compare your test strip to so you will know the condition of your oil. Save money buy these test strips!
    These things saved us money as they proved to me i was changing the fryer oils way to soon, this should cut our oil bill by a third!
    Well it does its job. We use the full miroil system and the strips say our oil is never bad. Which you would think is a good thing. I thank I must have high standards for oil I'm not sure. There are times when I don't think the grease is very good but the strip says it is. This could have something to do with the fact that we only have fryer so all foods are cooked in the same grease instead of just potatoes. That could make a difference.
    Fryers should be filtered and cleaned often but tend to be forgotten! This pack of test strips will atleast allow you to control the oil!
    with the ever rising cost of fry oil anything you can do to control your oil you have to. this way the line cook doesnt just look at the greese and say ok im changing it, he has a guide to follow:)
    This item is a must have in the food/health safety conscious world we live in today. Health conscious folks know the importance of avoiding the dangerous breakdown in fryer oil molecules. These same folks will occasionally indulge in fried food if you can make it a selling point that your fryer oil is periodically tested. Tough industry, you need every advantage you can get!
