When assessing fryer options between stand-alone fryers or filter bank suites, the first thing that often confronts the decision-maker is the price difference. A lot of the time this is where the thinking stops and one starts exploring free-standing fryer options as they are perceived as the “cheaper option”. Everything isn’t always as it seems.
There are hidden costs involved in going for the “cheaper option”. While there are mobile filter options available, these however need to be stored somewhere in the kitchen – a place where space is always at a premium.
Oil is one of the most expensive ongoing costs to a business, so if there was a way to extend oil life and save serious money every week, why wouldn’t the relevant savings come into serious consideration?
One of the key benefits of in-built filtration is the ease of filtering alternate fryers during quiet periods (use one while filtering the other).
Staff will usually not go out of their way to get the third-party filter (typically) until end of service – whereas filtering can be easily completed by the time service is over by utilising in-built filtration. Thus resulting in a business saving on wages and overheads.
Using the Anets system, all oil handling can be done without removing the filter draw, not having to transport to an external filter then back into another fryer or into storage drums to dispose of. This provides an immediate OH&S benefit.
If staff don’t have a mobile oil filtering machine they are most likely using a chinois and an oversized pot –meaning often times staff will do almost anything possible to avoid doing this task. Unfortunately, most of the time this means “skipping” the oil filtering process because it doesn’t look “that bad today”, not to mention the increased OH&S risk involved with this process.
The success of the Anets range can be seen by looking at their long list of customers, as they are currently being utilised by numerous quick service restaurant chains throughout the country, including Guzman Y Gomez just to name a few.
