For a time I operated in a corner store as a clerk and cook and I utilized a deep fryer a fair bit for cooking battered chicken and French fried potatoes.
Prior to the chicken is all set for the cooking part it need to be prepared and time to thaw out. It is once again rinsed and kept cold, up until needed for cooking.
Each piece is than carefully positioned in the boiling oil in the deep fryer; starting with the large, meaty pieces, and ending up with the thin bony pieces. They get the hottest oil in the pot to start off the cooking procedure. The pot elevator will instantly lift the cooking basket out of the hot oil, enabling the chicken to leak off the excess oil.
They then can be carefully decreased in hands full, into the boiling oil. After 4 cooks the oil in the fryer requires to be filtered to clean it for future cooking cycles. Another alarm shows when oil filtering requirements to happen.
The heat on the oil is turned off, so the oil can cool down enough to work with. The cooking basket is raised and eliminated from the fryer. A valve is relied on permit the oil to drain pipes down into the filtering drawer. When the oil has drained the empty oil reservoir is brushed, including the heating coil aspect, to eliminate anything adhering to their surface areas. A pump is switched on which flows the oil consistently through the filter. The filtering can take place for 10 or 15 minutes, depending how dark the oil appears in color. When the oil has become lighter in color it is pumped back up to the oil reservoir, after the valve at the bottom of the pot has actually been closed. The heating component is switched on and website the oil is restored as much as cooking temperature. The unpleasant part is digging the sludge at the bottom of the filter drawer. The cleaned up filter is dusted with a special powder, put back in its location under the fryer pot, and all is prepared to go again.
Yes the fryer does many of the cooking for you however watch out for the hot oil when packing the food into the cooking basket. Even using rubber gloves won't stop the oil from burning you, ought to it sprinkle on your hands as the food drops into the hot oil.
Delighted cooking. Cook, but don't be cooked.
