Item #: 177F102
Fry up a variety of different food items with this convenient Avantco F102 20 lb. dual tank electric countertop fryer! Built to out-perform all others in its class, this 20 lb. dual tank fryer is perfect for light-duty applications like delis, small sandwich shops, and concession stands. The compact size allows you to tuck it into any corner on the counter, and the heavy-duty stainless steel construction adds extended durability. Thanks to the thermostatic controls on each tank, you can adjust the temperature of the oil from 120 - 370 degrees Fahrenheit to accommodate the appropriate frying temperatures for different foods. With a 15-minute heat-up time, this fryer is ready to use in no time! Each removable tank has a capacity of 6 liters (1.5 gallons), and the unit uses 20 lb. of shortening.
To ensure safety for you and your employees, the fryer features a minimum and maximum oil fill line. Two heavy-duty fryer baskets features a black coated handle for heat protection and operator comfort. After you've finished frying your food, simply hang the baskets on the hanger to let any remaining oil drain out. It also serves as a great tool for cooling your freshly fried products while you focus on other kitchen tasks. To expedite the cleaning process at the end of the night, the components lift out of the fryer easily. A crumb screen rests on the bottom of the tank and catches excess crumbs so they don't burn and create a mess, and can be disposed of by simply lifting the screen up and discarding the debris. The included night cover helps protect your unit from airborne contaminants during off hours. The Avantco double countertop fryer requires a 120V, 3500W electrical connection, with each pot having a wattage of 1750W.
This unit is not designed for constant, heavy use.

Nice deep fryer from Avantco! Capable of cooking large amounts of food from fries to wings etc. must have for any small business looking to deliver top quality fried goods.
The temperature control works well and the dual tank provides adequate space and is helpful when frying foods separately such as egg rolls and desserts. The only drawback we have found is that the basket handle will sometimes fall out of place, so we try not to shake the basket. Other than the basket handle, this countertop fryer does the job.
That's already our second Avantco and we have one more to buy, as of today we have never experienced any huge issues. Definitely worth buying!
Double fryer 120V, 3500W. I bought this one for home and it is very good fryer. If you keep up with clean fry oil it will fry some very good and tasty food.
Deep baskets allow for plenty of items to be cooked at once. Takes a while to heat up, but nothing major. I would consider buying 2 single tank fryers vs this dual one in case your electrical connections require flexibility. Overall great product.
This fryer is awsome I have enjoyed cooking with it. It is not made for large scale frying but is great for med to small size events and frying.
This fryer works great! I agree with many of the other comments though about the handles on the baskets. They do not stay in place. I found a fix though. If you bend out the bottoms of the handle and run the handle "around" the opening instead of through it, and they bend the bars back, it is a solid fix and they work great, the down side is you will not be able to fold them over at night, it is a permanent position for the handles. The unit heats up in about 20 minutes. WE do a full bag of fries (6 bags to a case type) in about 14 minutes it yields us about 12 orders. This is a good light use machine, I wouldn't want to use it 10 hours a day 7 days a week. AS always I was satisfied with the price paid and the quick shipping. It took care of our needs for a high school foot ball game on a Friday night and will do so for years to come I'm sure.
Good product. We use it (plus the single pot model) for items that take 3-4 minutes to fry. It stays on for about 4 hours/day and has been used for several months with no problems. Small restaurant with a limited fry menu.
We love this product. It has a quick recovery time to keep up with our demand. We use it twice a week in our kitchen and take it with us for our catering events, Easy to maintain, In the reviews i read someone mentioned they had trouble with the basket handles, We have never had an issue with them and love the that they flod in for storage and transport. This is a great addition for any kitchen.
This product is amazing! It had an easy setup and directions were easy to follow. Very easy skill set for any level of a cook.
I was skeptical about the size for my small restaurant/catering business. However, it is the perfect fit!! Definitely worth every penny and is efficient even during busy periods. Planning to get another one for off-site events.
This Avantco F102 20 lb. Dual Tank Electric Countertop Fryer was a wondeful addition ot our business. It made everything so much easier. I do not know how we managed without it
We love this fryer. It fits the table perfectly. If needed you can use on side for appetizers and the other for chicken. Chicken grease needs to be changed a little more often. Easy clean up
Have a few of these. They heat up fairly quickly. I only use them for catering and for the price they are well worth it.
I love this little fryer! I have been using it in my food truck for several years now and it is perfect for what I need. It isn't used for very high volume cooking but it does the job I need it to. I have been very happy with all my Avantco products!
Purchased 2 sets of these and for the money you can't beat it. They work great, easy to assemble and disassemble and VERY VERY easy to use.
This is a fantastic fryer. The two compartments together are probably bigger than one normal sized fryer basket. This works great for garnishes and small appetizers.
Good small size deep fryer and great function of adjustable tempresure. Two basket can folded and keep in place very neat and organized. Love it.
This fryer is well constructed easily cleaned , and just right for small to medium thru put. Would diffinately recommend to anyone. Websturant's quick shipping was great.
This is the of the most useful Father's Day gift I've ever received! The best part is with the large capacity I can cook enough fries at once that everyone gets served at the same time. Twin tanks are nice so that one side can be reserved for foods that impart flavors to the oil like fish or the cinnamon in apple fritters.
Great fryer that keeps the oil at an even temperature which helps keep a consistent product. I would recommend this to all small delis and restaurants.
Great fryer! Heats up quickly! Love how it has to separate compartments for frying different items. Nice fryer for the price. Would definitely purchase again.
This fryer is good for cooking fries. The capacity isn't huge but I still only use one side at slower times and start the other side once i gets really busy. If your volume is small this is excellent.
Fantastic Little Fryer. I use it all the time in my Diner for Fish and Shrimp. It has come in very handy as a backup and overflow fryer as well during busy times. Great buy for the Money !
Outstanding fryer - we use for promotional tailgating events - it handles the load with easy. The thing I like the most is the easy clean up. I would recommend this product for anyone who likes or needs to fry food.
This machine works perfectly. So easy to assemble and little effort to fry delicious food in! It was shipped very fast and price is adorable
This Dual tank fryer is great we like the fact that it is countertop and electric, so we don't have to worry about any special installations, just hook it up anywhere and you are good to go! Great for outdoor events too.
Avantco dual tank electric counter top fryer good for busy places or restaurant & deli . Its time saver , easy to use comes with all the attachment using this item everyday .
Incredible low cost alternative to fry our gluten free items. We fry all gluten free products in this fryer so there is no chance of getting gluten in the product.
This fryer is great. The heatup and recovery time is excellent. Its easy to clean and Maintain. I looked around for quite a while and found this one to be the most reasonably priced and most reliable. I would reccomend this unit for anyone looking for a nice compact table top electric fryer.
Excellent purchase! Allows me to fry chicken or fish for my catering business without mixing the oils. You can either use one side or botth sides together. Heats up withing 15 minutes and you can also purchase the filter powder to clean your oil to be reused. A must buy for small business owners!
Works great easy to clean and very helpful during busy times. Cools foods fast and to a high quality. Would definitely buy another for my restaurant
It gets the job done. The thermostat leaves something to be desired as it is not accurate. I used an electronic temperature probe to test it
works well in a small kitchen you don't have to worry to put a hood. easy to used deep fray anything in seconds with heat
This is very easy to work with on the counter at home. We got it as a testing fryer at home when we don't want to load oil into our large commercial fryers. The temp range is accurate to our large fryers and gives us a chance to test new products in small quantity befor adding to our menu.
Love! Love! Love! This fryer. It is so easy to clean and heats up nice and even. Does take a bit of time to heat up for the first time each day, but once it gets to temperature it's amazing! The handle on the baskets do leave a lot to be desired. They just snap out of place causing the basket to topple the contents out haphazardly. Works ok as long as you are over the table or counter and not the floor.
The Avantco countertop far exceeded my expectations of it. For the price it’s definitely value for money. If you’re using the fryer and it chips out, no need to worry just press the reset button at the back of the fryer and it will turn right on...
This deep fryer is great each side can be used for different things. You can use one side don't need to use both to cook
This deep fryer was the most economical that I could find; and I am so happy that I did. I love the dual wells with separate temperature controls. We do a small fried menu and this fryer heats up fast, maintains temperature well, and provides for easy cleanup. The only disadvantage is the lack of timer(s. This is highly recommended for small cafes and restaurants.
Works as advertised in my opinion. I use this deep fryer for home use and the Dover Sole fish I fry comes out just like the restaurants I visit. Just make sure you're cooking at 365 F. I highly recommend this deep fryer.
I haven’t used it but it’s set up in my kitchen. It gets warm really fast. A lot bigger than I was expecting but that’s great. We will be using these fryers for funnel cakes and deep fried oreos
I have had this item for about 2 years. It is great to use and fry your food quick. I love the double baskets it has
Needed alot of grease but got the job done. Will work for a small establishment with medium load but not for heavy duty loads. Good for price
Ok, so I love this fryer. I'm a small deli with limited work space. I can use one side for french fries and the other side for coated buffalo chips, excellent for my business. When I first opened the deli, i was only serving fries so i would use only one side of the fryer and once it got dirty, i would use the other side until both sides were dirty and then i would clean it. Definately recommend this fryer!
this machine is built to out-perform all others in its class, this 20 lb. dual tank fryer is perfect for light-duty applications like delis, small sandwich shops, and concession stands.
I am a caterer and purchased this for a big in store event that my company catered. It is awesome! We did french fries for 175 people in an hour. It was easy to use, quick to come up to temperature and easy to clean because all the pieces come apart. The ONLY little problem is the handles on the baskets, which someone else mentioned here. For the price though- you absolutely can not beat this thing. Get one!
We used this fryer to make fresh made to order french fries. It did a pretty good job and the client was pleased with the outcome.
Hands down the best table top fryer on the market, doesn't use too much power and the baskets are the perfect size! And the company is great about help!
We do a good amount of off premise catering and this fryer offers us an inexpensive, portable way to fry foods to order. One of the challenges with this fryer for us has been the amount of power necessary to run both fryers. If you are using this fryer in-house, this will not be a problem since you will have control over this issue. But if you are relying on a power hook up at a residence, at a fair, etc, you may find yourself either not being able to turn on the unit or only being being able to use one of the two fryers at once. (you need 15 amps for each fryer)
A little smaller than expected but it works very well. I recommend for a backup or quick fix to any fryer needs that you might have.
Fantastic fryer, especially for the price! We use these for deep frying our samosas. If we add any other fried items to the menu, I have no doubt this fryer will be able to handle the extra workload!
We use this to cook 2-3 servings of chicken or fish at a time - one side is dedicated to fish/seafood. Have been using daily for about 6 weeks, it usually sits on low heat for about 5 or 6 hours a day, we raise the temp as needed for orders. (Fries are done in a full size fryer.) Have had absolutely no problems & it solved a major space issue.
When space is limited this is the perfect unit if you plan to still deep fry items. Easy to fill and use. Great for small spaces and a great item for appetizers.
We use this product every time we are open. The product is easy to clean and makes the load on our other fryers smaller. When we are in a pinch we use this fryer in order to stay caught up.
Love that we switched from gas to electric fryers! Saves money, MUCH easier to clean and you don’t have to have them both on if you don’t need them both on.
Great small fryer for any home kitchen or any small restaurant that only has a few fried items on the menu. Also gotta love the price for such a sleek small fryer with a splash top.
Very fast heating and even cooking. I love that it is 2 separate units all together with 2 separate electrical cords. Some days I only have to use 1 side and so that makes it very easy to not accidentally have the other side heating all day even when its not being used. The hardest thing about assembly was getting the shrink wrap off after unpacking it, talk about a nightmare.
Great fryer and the two cords is extremely helpful. We do a very small amount of frying in our kitchen so its convenients compared to a whole fryer.
I recommend this item mainly because of the price. Purchasing these separately any where else is very expensive. I like the separate thermostat so you can let one cool to change the grease and still keep rolling out food with the other
This is the best price I ever found on the 20 lb Countertop fryer with twin pots at 120 v. It heat up very quick and it works just well like all the other expensive one. Got it for my mom, she loves it.
Ordered this fryer for home use. Heats up quickly and evenly. Have been completely satisfied with this product. Really like fact that for its size 2 different foods can be fried at the same time.
This fryer is perfect for the small kitchen looking for a way to easily expand menu. The 2 bays hold oil temp very well and is relatively easy to clean.
We were a little bit scared when we bought this fryer because we didnt know what to expect. We used it for our big events. Surprisingly it works as good as our big commercial fryers. Its super easy to setup and it heats up very quickly. Easy to clean and put away. We love it and cant wait to use it again.
The fryer is good for light duty work and light duty only. I wouldn't recommend this if you would be consistently using it throughout the day.
We've been using this fryer for years to fry any and everything that can fit. It maintains the temp pretty well if you don't crowd the fryer and reaches a temp of about 350F. It shows clearly the min/max fill line for oil and has a display to indicate when the fryer is hot and heating. It is tough to clean the heating unit sometimes, but if you are careful and have the right tools, very doable.
This is a great product, but I would only recommend using this fryer in a low volume setting, they lose temperature when used in high volume.
I really like this item it is very nice I would recommend it to anyone completely satisfied with it I give it a 5 star
The Avantco 20 Pound Commercial Countertop Fryer with Twin Pots 120V. It is great each side das it's own cord so they can be set a different tempatures. It is perfect for concession stands.
The Avantco 20 lb. Commercial countertop Fryer - Twin Pots 120v. It is great for our concession stand. The fryer baskets and lid for overnight are included. You can use one side only if needed, cause each side has it's own cord.
The Avantco F102 20 lb. Dual Tank Electric Countertop Fryer - 120V, 3500W is a great product we will be ordering more for our shops in the near future I am sure
We ordered this fryer to replace one that finally failed and have been very happy with it, we use it for fries daily and it has worked perfect, had a small issue with one side but the Webstaurant support staff was super quick to resolve it, would highly recommend it for anyone who needs a small low cost GOOD fryer
We at Big Chris catering and takeout use this dual countertop fryer to fry fish on Friday and fried biscuits. It is a great item
Works very well. Heats up quickly, and easy to take apart to clean. Only con against it is that there could be a splash guard added to it to help with cleanliness. Oil will splash out everywhere leaving a little more mess to clean up each evening. Otherwise, great product for price.
Solid product for the price. Better than anything you can get at a big box store but don't expect the same recovery time and build quality of one that costs 5x as much. Cooks fries and appetizers fine but for fish it's better to get a better built fryer that can recover faster and hits a true 375 degrees.
For this price, this is a deal and a life saver. My commercial deep fryer was delivered to me faulty from ebay and this came right in time to save my life. I'm still using this daily for 2 months commercially and i haven't had a problem as yet.
My company is doing very well with this product. I can cook 12 whole chicken wings in each fryer. I serve about 100 people, 2 days a week. It heats up in about 20 mins
Great dual fryer! This is perfect for a food truck or small restaurants. It works very well and it is very powerful, 120V, 3500 watts
this set up is good for small stuff but not high demand situations. it takes the grease to long to get back up to temp.
Fantastic little fryer, we use this on a regular basis for our off site catering. Recovers very quick and holds consistent. Will buy another soon.
This fryer is the best for the money you pay, I love it. It is very economical very light and good looking as well as compact. It is a good one.
Very nice little fryer. We really appreciate how the parts are easily removed for cleaning. The ability to use only one tank at a time is a bonus too.
This fryer is awesome for my small business! It heats up quickly and is super easy to clean! I would definitely recommend it to anybody!
We bought two sets of this, and we had plug it in every day since 8 minths ago for 13 hours oer day, we has no problems so far, they heat up fast like about 10 to 15 minutes to 370 f, for the price its a great product.
This counter-top fryer is a great addition to a small kitchen. It keeps heat very good, easy to clean, and it is perfect for our needs
This particular model is a little bit harder to clean in comparison to the single basket but other than that is a good reliable piece of equipment.
Love love love this fryer I don’t have to fry the fries in the same grease as the fish and that’s really great for allergen easy to clean
this fryer is pretty awesome, and just the right price heats up fast and stays at a consistent heat as its being used, very nice for a inexpensive fryer
I love this fryer! Keeps temp really well and allows to cook dozen wings without crowding. They cook up nice and crispy! Only wish is that it had a timer attached to it.
For the price this little thing is a life saver and a work horse for a small kitchen that can't fit a floor model fryer. We thought it wouldn't last long because we use it a lot but its still kicking hard!
Great little fryer for the price. Recovery time is sufficient for small operation. Love that it's easy to break apart and clean. Would definitely recommend for small restaurant with low fryer volume.
Very Good product, just received so have not had much time to use. But, all the products we have bought from Webstaurant Store have been very reliable.
We bought our first fryer a little over 3 years ago. Since then, we purchased a second one earlier part of 2016. The first fryer was basically the same model, but they must had changed manufactures or something. The newest model baskets was not made as well and the heating elements were not interchangeable with the older model. We bought a second one because these do take some time to clean and we change oil and clean out weekly. Just worked better for us. The original fryer had either the power button or one of the lights go out on it, cant remember which, but I just bypassed to get it to continue to work. Last week it started to actually trip the reset breaker built under the control console. So I just placed an order for my 3rd one today. I could probably get it to work, but this thing is over 3 years old, I've made my money back no doubt. We turn our fryers on around 10:00 in the morning until 9p.m. 7 days a week. Cook chicken, fries, onion rings, corn dogs, mushrooms, fried pickles, tots all the good stuff there. The handles for the baskets do come out. You can try what ever you want to, it will come loose at some point, not too cool with hot grease! I installed two 2.5in metal joint plates with bolts and wing nuts for easy removal, one on the inside of handle and outside of basket. Don't have to worry about handles coming off anymore, unless you want them to. Recovery time does lag a little, but not that big of a deal, just have to keep eye on when cooking. Can kind of sucks if too busy, but we have managed. For the money, it does the job. I would like to upgrade, but as far as space and cost, mainly space...... I'm just not making the jump yet.
This fryer works great in one of my mobil food units, heats up fairly fast and maintains the proper temp...Great people to do business with, very helpful!! Thanks A Million!! I would advice to buy this fryer. Wonderful price, I am going to buy another one later...
Doesn't hold temp as well as my last unit did. We probably need to switch to a gas unit at this point I think probably.
