Customer Reviews

This fryer works great! This is the addition to my hundred pound unit. Two of them are great side by side. They both recover fast and they are great units. Only have them for a few months so far so let's see they hold up!

Bought this fryer back in April and I have no complaints. This fryer keeps up with the high demand we put on it. I clean and change the oil every one to two weeks. Heats up fast, easy to hook up. If business keeps going the way it is I will definitely be getting another one.

We bought 2 of these fryers and are very satisfied with them. Fast shipping and set up was a breeze. Compared to other, higher priced models these were worth it. We would buy Advantco models for any other needs as well.

I was so impressed with the first one I purchased, I bought a second. I have used Vulcan fryers of the same, and this fryer does it better and for a lot less money! I am so pleased with this product and purchase.

I've ordered 3 of these units over the past 3 years. We have had a couple issues with thermostats/thermocouples going out but it's a cheap and easy fix. I'd buy them again in the future.

We bought 2 of these fryers, they heat up quickly and maintain temperature well. Turn temp down between lunch and dinner if you have a down time to save on propane.

Run of the mill fryer, works great if maintained well. If you have a little bit extra to spend I would go a step up, but if in a crunch will get the job done.

I have this on my food truck and it is a total beast! It heats so fast and makes a great product! It is easy to clean, unlike my other fryer (an Imperial). When I am able, I will be replacing my 2nd fryer with another one of these. It's a great product and I couldn't be happier!

We purchased this fryer for our food truck after purchasing two of the natural gas fryers for our restaurant. They are wonderful even though they are inexpensive.

We purchased this seven months ago. The unit works as advertised. We make fresh cut French fries that are 3/8" cut. They take approximately five minutes to cook. We also make our own hand-breaded chicken fried steak. They take approximately four minutes to cook. I feel this is an excellent fryer for the price. I would recommend purchasing this brush http://www.webstaurantstore.com/carlisle-4011100-23-fryer-brush-with-l-tip-teflon-174-bristles/27140111.html because it is impossible to clean between the tubes without it.

We purchased (3) Avantco FF400 Fryers for our new restaurant and am pleased with the product construction. Avancto offers a cheaper price point than some of the other manufacturers with comparable quality.

I purchased 2 of Avantco FF400 propane fryers for my food truck. I haven't had a chance to use them yet because I'm still building the food truck.

Great fryer. This is perfect for getting the most bang for your buck. It doesn't take up a ton of room, but can still do a ton of work.

we have had 2 of these for 2 years now. they have performed flawlessly and have not required and additional service besides oil change. they do get dirty and could use a good pressure washing in and out every 2 years or so.

The Avantco FF400 50lb stainless steel floor fryer is a great fryer to have at any resaurant. This fryer gets the job done and you can control what temperature you want it at. We have two and use one to hold hot water

Here it is, the heavy-duty, one stop shop for all things frying related. Small enough to tuck away in a corner of the kitchen, but large enough to get he job done and fry up some french fries. Yum!!

Posted on 1/21/2016 12:00:00 AM

Great price for a great fryer. Works as well or better than our higher priced fryer. Shop used equipment and auctions, only to find overpriced, DIRTY junk.
