Testo White Paper:
Cooking oil and deep fryers are essential pieces of most food service kitchens in North America and have been since the first French fries were fried to perfection. Over the last 20+ years cooking oil has changed significantly. Cooking oils are now healthier, more stable and safer, however, very little has changed in how we manage the quality of cooking oil itself. Cooking oil represents a significant percentage of operating costs, and prices will vary widely depending on the oil type.
