Good light duty fryer. It can get overwhelmed if doing a lot back to back. Fries and tenders take longer than a more heavy duty fryer. If you have multiple fryers I would recommend this one. If this will be your only fryer and you do high volume get a more heavy duty one.

We use this frying everyday for cooking our fry food. It can use for fried chickens, dumplings, shrimp tempura, fried tofu, or food items that you want to fry. It is definitely recommended item for restaurant.

This fryer handled like a champ! It’s easy to lite and perfect larger size works great for high output food serving! We never had to wait for oil to reheat we didn’t have to worry about temperatures not being right. This fryer worked 18 hour days for 15 days straight and had no issues!

Purchased 2 of these fryers. One for fries and the other for our fried chicken. Performance on these fryers are great. Heat up fairly quick and does a great job of frying the food. This fryer take about 105 gallons of oil to fill up to the max level. It take about 30-45 minutes to change the oil and clean the fryer properly with cleaning chemical.

Love this Deep Fryer. Larger than a regular Deep Fryer. Works great for heavy traffic. Cooks a lot of French fries. Nice looking and easy to clean. Cant go wrong with this Deep Fryer. I bought 2 Deep Fryers from Avantco, Love them Both.

These fryers are great little workhorses. We fry a tremendous amount of chicken and fish in our buffet restaurant and these Avantco fryers never miss a bit. They may not last quite as long as the more expensive fryers, but their very low price point makes replacing them much less painful. Highly recommended.

This fryer is great on the line and the temperature is very accurate to the dial setting. Most fryers lose their calibration. This one has lasted us 3 years. Great buy.

We love this fryer! Very reasonable and competitive price compared to other fryers. We fry chicken, tenders, churros and other delicious foods. It works wonders. Highly Recommend!

Great fryer. We have not had any issues out of this thing at all. Temp is perfect and regulated as well. Highly recommend this product.

A perfect addition to our kitchen. Easy to clean, move and filter everyday. Fits in between our other fryers. Heats up quick and does not lose temperature.

Great fryer! I bought one for my first store and when I opened up the second I knew exactly which fryer I was going to buy!

This is not a review on the product, I'm trying to purchase two of these fryers I need to know the oil capacity of individual fryer.

Great buy for the money. They work perfectly and not too hard to clean. The only draw back is the control knobs, the numbers wear off pretty quick.

Nice size and very easy to use. Pilot stays on so just turn it up when you come in the morning. Nice size for volume frying.

Works great. Doubles the volume of the deep fryer without doubling the space needed to put a deep fryer on the line at the restaurant.

This is a very average fryer. The price is excellent! Fryers are all stainless steel and metal. Has the same form factor as its competitors for half the price. So far so good after a year of use..

Overall nice unit , but what they fail to tell you is the unit does NOT come with gas regulator so we had to order them someplace else so it delayed start up.

Purchased this fryer to replace an electric fryer. We cook a high volume of french fries and this fryer recoups temp and cooks extremely well.

The best price around for this size fryer. Even with the shipping, the cost was less than anywhere else that we looked, performs great also

This fryer is a beast. We use this primarily for fried chicken dropped dry. The sediments collect well on the bottom and do not contaminate or burn the rest of the oil. Easy to clean and gets up to temperature fast.

We purchased this fryer for our church. Our congregation has about 650-700 members and we have a lot of functions that require the preparation of food for large groups. This fryer serves that purpose well. I strongly recommend this deep fryer when you have to prepare food for large groups and small groups as well because you can use just one of the baskets.

This is a large floor style fryer! We love using it to create mouthwatering fried appetizers like fried pickles and mozz sticks!! Easy to clean and filter oil!!

A super high quality fryer that you should expect to pay much more for. Performs well, and has a very accurate thermostat. These should last for decades with the proper care, and compare to more recognized brands!

ITs a decent fryer, although to be specifically honest the food usually gets trap on the side due to not making the bottom tray larger.

Great large 70lb fryer. And worth the upgrade from the 45llb fryers. I would definitely go bigger rather than smaller in a start up restaurant

This product is too good to be true for the price! I bought 3!!! They heat up fast, cook food quick and are easy to clean! I would recommend having the lids for safety and cleanliness.
