Frying Medium Phases
Frying Medium Phases Consistency and quality of the
frying medium (FM) is a key factor in maintaining that frying
Traditional frying methods generally consist of a routine where all the frying medium is replaced at specified intervals. This method causes an inconsistency with the frying medium.
The life of the oil consists of three phases. During the first Phase, the water in the product evaporates slowly and remains on the surface for longer creating an overcooked and slushy product.

A thermostat that has been tested as reliable.
A form of testing that can show when the FM is breaking down and needs to be rotated.
Extending the life of your FM is simple but varies according to
volumes fried and the product being cooked.
FM Management Method Highlights
- Skimming and topping up of FM with single vat
- Vat rotation and topping up with Multiple vats

Multi vat operations have many variable factors, but in general:

FM needs to be dumped (we recommend trailing 20%) then replace with FM from vat one.
Test with your 3M tester.
Vat 3 is for additional chips and/or crumbed products. Crumbed products cause a quicker break down of FM.
If you crumb a lot of product you may wish to filter twice a day. Follow dumping procedures as outlined with vat 2.
Have a separate vat for Chickens, sausages and seasoned products as juices from these products cause the FM to breakdown faster.
This vat will need to be dumped more regularly and can be topped up from vat one or two to give it the second phase quality.
