Anyone got any tips on cleaning a deep fryer? Elbow greese just isn't working. Thanks.

    We've covered this topic before. You should find some great information contributed on sodium hydroxide boilouts and other off-the-shelf decarbonizing products in the archives.

        Don't have boil out? A friend recommended lemon juice. Fill fryer with water, add about 1/2 cup lemon juice, boil about 10 minutes. This works well on breaking down the oils and makes rinsing easier.

          Soda blaster - See if anyone in your area does this.

            Go to a restaurant supply store and get boil out.  It works the best and follow instructions.  Lemon juice is fair but not as good a s boil out.  Once you get it clean , weekly cleaning will keep it clean and strain nightly.

              Have you heard of a group called Filta Environmental Kitchen Solutions?  They come in and maintain your fryers and micro-filter your oil which extends the life of the oil - usually reducing your oil cost enough to pay for the service.  They also say that by taking on this dangerous task, insurance companies may reduce the restaurant's insurance premiums.
