Step 3: Cook Efficiently
Use efficient frying techniques and make smart oil purchases
Beyond purchasing efficient fryers and maintaining your oil, consider purchasing oil with a long fry life and efficiently cooking your food with oil-saving techniques.
Make smart oil purchases
When making decisions around the oil you use in your fryer, be sure to work with a vendor that aligns with your sustainability values. Some cooking oils have a longer fry life, which means you can expect fewer oil changes. This can translate into using less oil, having less of it shipped or transported, and decreasing the amount of the empty oil jugs sent to landfills.
Efficient frying — follow these tips to extend your oil life!
Only fill baskets 1/2 way to 2/3 full
Shake off extra moisture and crumbs away from oil before frying
When frying frozen foods, do not thaw
Do not salt food over the kettle
Allow fried food to drain
Don’t forget to include fryers in your start up-shut-down schedule
