When it comes to deep fryers, there are two primary types that you should be familiar with: electric and propane. Electric deep fryers are by far the most commonly used, and for good reason. They offer the convenience of being able to be used both indoors and outdoors, as long as there is an outlet nearby. One of the key advantages of electric deep fryers is that they often come equipped with built-in timers and thermostats, which can make the frying experience much easier for users. These handy features allow you to set the perfect cooking time and temperature, ensuring that your food comes out crispy and delicious every time.
On the other hand, there are propane deep fryers. These are typically used for outdoor cooking adventures, where an electrical outlet may not be readily available. Propane deep fryers rely on a propane tank to heat the oil, which in turn allows for faster heating times compared to electric counterparts. This can be particularly advantageous when you're cooking for a large group or hosting a backyard barbecue. The intense heat generated by the propane tank ensures that your oil will reach the desired temperature quickly, so you can start frying your favorite foods in no time.Whether you opt for an electric deep fryer with its convenient timers and thermostats or a propane deep fryer for outdoor cooking expeditions, both types offer their own unique advantages. Ultimately, the choice between the two will depend on your needs and preferences. Whichever you choose, one thing is for sure – a deep fryer is a must-have tool for any serious home cook or outdoor enthusiast. So why wait? Get ready to prepare crispy, mouth-watering delights right in the comfort of your own home or in the great outdoors, thanks to the power of a deep fryer.

Before any equipment can be operational, the gas, electricity, plumbing, ventilation, and fire control must be considered and planned carefully.
Gas - Natural and PropaneMany food service managers think it is wise to have part of the cooking and serving equipment energized by gas: Gas supplies a source of immediate heat and when turned off, the heat stops immediately. If at least some of the equipment is gas powered, it is still functional in an electrical failure and the menu can be modified more easily to adapt to the emergency. However, many gas-fired burners are triggered by an electrical solenoid thermostat so it is important for some auxiliary power to be available in case of a power outage. Food service equipment designed to use gas may be less expensive than the same equipment that uses electricity. The cost of operating gas-fired equipment should be compared to the cost of electricity for an equal amount of heat or energy. Planners and designers must decide which pieces of equipment will use gas and which will use electricity.
Examples of equipment that might be powered by natural gas are the following:
- Natural Gas Griddles
- Natural Gas Charbroilers
- Natural Gas Deep Fryers
- Natural Gas Hot Plates
- Natural Gas Stock Pot Stoves
- Natural Gas Ranges
It is important for the mechanical engineer or contractor to calculate the necessary power output of all utilities. This calculation or estimate should be based on maximum load so that during peak periods there will be an adequate fuel supply for the equipment to perform to capacity. The total Btu load must be determined to properly size the storage container, regulator, and piping. Whoever provides the basic input into the planning might project the total Btu's needed by totaling the requirements of each piece of equipment, allowing for a 10-15% margin of safety.
A manometer, which indicates the presence of leakage, is used to check the pressure, which should be held to 10 pounds per square inch (psi). There are specific requirements for the size and kind of pipe depending on the distance transported, the flow rate, and the usage volume. Generally, copper pipe is used for shorter distances and lower flow rates and usage volumes, but iron pipe becomes necessary as these factors increase.
Propane storage containers and piping will be installed by the local supplier in accordance with National Fire Protection Association standards. Propane gas equipment that might be used by food trucks and street vendors are the following:
- Atosa Freezers
- Sandwich Prep Tables
- Pizza Prep Tables
- Atosa Ice Machines
- Bar Refrigeration
- Commercial Deep Fryers
- Commercial Ovens
