Frying Oil Life

The life of the frying oil can be indefinitely prolonged by filtering the fat twice every day (or at the end of every shift) and then adding 10% new oil which is enough to rejuvenate the original oil. (If less than 10% of the oil was absorbed by the fried products, dip out enough to permit the addition of the 10% new oil. The oil removed can be used on the griddle or for other cooking needs.) For example, for a 35 lb. fryer, 3.5 lbs . of fresh oil must be added. With this method, high annual savings in fat costs can be realized.
