Tips for preventing a filthy deep fat fryer

This is the best way to maintain your frying pan and to prevent difficult, seemingly impossible cleaning sessions. The sooner you clean the fryer, the easier it is because the fat will not have solidified yet (and hardened) so it reduces the risk of it burning the next time you use the pan.

In addition, we advise you regularly replace the fat in the deep fryer. Not just for cleaning purposes, but also because the food will taste better. Regular cleaning will prevent a dirty frying pan and bad-tasting chips!

Three DIY methods for a clean frying pan

There are many DIY solutions for cleaning and degreasing frying pans on various blogs and websites. Note: these methods do not guarantee success:

1. Cleaning the frying pan with washing-up liquid
Washing-up liquid degreases and can be used to clean the fryer basket and the interior pan. Fill the sink with hot water, add some washing-up liquid and scrub the parts clean. This method is quite time and energy consuming. Not only do you have to scrub long and hard to remove all the grease from the frying pan, you may also have to replace the hot water and washing-up liquid a number of times. And still some grease might remain and become caked on, making it even more difficult to remove.  With the HG deep-fat fryer cleaner,  getting a clean frying pan goes quite a bit faster and much more effectively.

3. Cleaning the frying pan with soda
Clean frying pan with soda? Soda is a very effective cleaning agent and is often used to remove caked-on grease and dirt. Fill approximately 75% of your frying pan with water. Then add a couple of tablespoons of soda and place the basket in the frying pan. Turn on the frying pan to maximum 90 degrees C and leave it for approximately 10 minutes. Then turn off the frying pan and empty the contents into the sink. This is a good way to get a clean frying pan on the inside. Although this is an often recommended method, we advise against the use of soda. Soda can cause damage to the materials used in the frying pan.
