Posted by zoeysreviews on March 15th, 2019

Biting into a perfectly crisped, hot deep-fried piece of chicken or perfectly salted French fries can be amazing. What is less amazing, however, is cleaning up afterward. It is recommended that you clean your deep fryer every few uses when it is frequently used, every time you use it if you do not use it very often or anytime that you cook raw meat. Follow these steps to make this potentially messy, or even dangerous job simply.

1. Make Sure the Fryer is Unplugged and Let it Cool

The first thing you want to do is unplug the deep fryer, so that there is no risk of electrical shock. Then, make sure that it has cooled entirely before starting the cleaning process. This is important because any amount of water added to hot oil can cause an explosion or possibly burns.

2. Drain and Dispose of the Deep Fryer Oil

First, decide whether you are going to keep the oil or dispose of it. If you want to use it again, then use a food safe container to store the oil. Drain it into the container, seal it with an airtight lid, and place it in a cool place for storage. If you plan to dispose of it, put the oil in a sealed container before placing in the garbage. You should not dispose of it in the sink- it can cause significant clogging.

3. Remove the Frying Basket

Once the oil has been removed, lift the frying basket out of the deep fryer. Take 2-3 drops of dish soap and spread it around the basket, to make it easier to clean later. Set it in the sink.

4. Clean Oil from the Lid and Pot

Look at the oil. If it is caked onto the fryer, use a stiff plastic utensil, such as a spatula a pan scraper. Using plastic is important so you do not scratch the deep fryer. Dispose of this and then dampen a paper towel. Use this to wipe away any food bits or oil residue. If you can remove the lid, place this in the sink for washing later.

5. Clean the Heating Element

If the heating element has an oily residue, you will need to clean it. As you clean, beware of accidentally damaging any parts by bending them. Some heating elements have very thin wires that may break easily.

6. Washing the Deep Fryer

Begin by adding 8 drops of dish soap to the inside of the deep fryer, 4 on the bottom and 4 evenly spaced out on the sides. Starting at the bottom of the pan, use a soft sponge to scrub. It is most effective to use a circular motion and then work your way up the sides of the pan.

Once you are finished scrubbing, use a pitcher to fill the deep fryer with hot water, to avoid water from getting into the heating element. Let this sit for thirty minutes. You can turn the deep fryer on and boil the water if you have a lot of oily residue still stuck on the inside of the pan.

7. Cleaning the Frying Basket

Using warm water and a scrubbing brush, remove food particles. Then, wipe back and forth with a sponge, adding more dish soap if there is still grease. Continue this process until the basket is clean and then rinse the soap. Set it aside on a towel to dry. Then, use hot, soapy water to wash and rinse the deep fryer lid.

8. Re-Wash the Cooking Pot

Remove the water from the deep fryer pot. If it is very oily, dispose of it in the garbage instead of down your drain. Then, take a cloth or sponge to wipe the external of the deep fryer with water.

If there is a sticky or oily residue left over, try making a paste of water and baking soda and spreading it on the inside of the pan. Rinse this completely before using it again. You can rinse by adding clean water and swirling it around. Pour it out and repeat until the entire soap residue is gone.

9. Let it Dry

It is essential that you let your deep fryer parts dry completely before you use them again. This gives the electrical system a chance to work out if any water entered it.
