Alconox® Powdered Precision Cleaner is a powerful hard surface detergent that is non-caustic, drain-safe and biodegradable. It’s perfect for cleaning commercial deep fryers and their hoods and baffle filters.

How to Clean Fryer Hoods:

  1. If possible, move the fryer away from the hood.
  2. Add 2/3 cup of Alconox® detergent to 4 gallons of warm water
    (See Table 2).
  3. Use with long-handled brushes, scrub pads, or a scraper if necessary to clean hood.
  4. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
  5. Note that there is a silicone caulk along interior seams. Be careful not to break this seal with scraper.

How to Clean Fryer Hood Baffle Filters:

  2. Add 2 cups of Alconox® detergent to 12 gallons of warm water in one basin of a 3 compartment sink (See Table 2).
  3. Soak overnight in Alconox detergent solution.
  4. Use a 2 inch bottle brush to get in the “grooves.”
  5. Run the filters through the dishwasher or rinse thoroughly.
