FryerHow to Clean Frypots (open-pot, tube-style, flat-bottom) using Alconox®:

  1. Drain and dispose of oil from frypot.
  2. Close the drain valve and fill frypot with hot water. Dissolve 16 oz (1 lb) of Alconox® powdered detergent in the water. For flat bottomed fryers, use 2 lbs of Alconox® detergent.
  3. Scrub fryer with a long-handled nylon brush to loosen caked-on grease.
  4. Place frying baskets and utensils inside frypot to soak.
  5. If safe water heating settings are available: heat the solution, then simmer for 30 minutes (190-195ºF). If heating is not allowed: cold soak for 2-8 hours or leave to soak overnight if required.

  6. Drain half the solution out of the frypot into a bucket. Do NOT drain into the filter pan. If required, scrub fryer with long-handled nylon brush, drain the remaining solution, and then scrub again if needed. The solution may be reused to clean a second frypot or used to wash other stainless steel equipment, walls, and floors. If the fryer is equipped with an automated filter mechanism, do not drain detergent into filter.
  7. Thoroughly rinse the frypot with potable water. Thoroughly dry the fryer.
  8. Pour 2 cups of oil into the frypot and drain into bucket to remove any remaining water.

***For a small fryer, use 8oz of Alconox® detergent, for a large fryer use 2lbs of Alconox® detergent.

***If the fryer is cleaned very frequently or the fryer is only used for fries then 8oz of Alconox® detergent can be used for a medium-sized frypot.
