Frying oil test kits are tools used for measuring the levels of contaminants and degrading in used oil. Oil is an expensive kitchen ingredient. The popularity of french fries, nuggets, mozzarella sticks, or other fried products requires frequent oil use. Operators often use the same oil for several batches to reduce costs. Knowing when to change your fry oil affects product quality, taste, and human health. Therefore, you shouldn’t risk it to guesswork.
Frying oil test kits use different methods to tell you when to replace the oil in your commercial deep fryers. Some testers have droppers to take a sample from the fry pot for visual color comparison. More improved kits, like the Testo oil tester, evaluate and show the Total Polar Material (TPM) contents in percentages. The colored display signals you when the accepted TPM values are exceeded. Red means you must change the oil.
