Corn dog fryers are specialty fryers designed primarily for cooking hot dogs in a deep and narrow fry pot with skewer clips. You can attach wooden sticks to the clips holding hot dogs seasoned in cornmeal batter. They are fried in hot oil until they turn golden brown in almost no time and served safely to corndog fans. Frying this popular snack is, of course, possible also in a standard commercial fryer but with some hassle and difficulties. However, the skewer clips and specific fry vats make the frying process more efficient and the product tastier.
Corn dog fryers are available in countertop and floor models. Countertop units are compact, ideal for low-production needs in facilities with minimum space. Floor models can cater to larger batches of cooking. They have adjustable legs for easy leveling. When considering your cooking capacity needs, you will also check the tank capacity of the fryer's tank. The maximum frying capacity per hour is twice the oil the tank can hold. Cooking volume is also specified as the number of corn dogs the fry pot can accommodate.
A key point in commercial deep fryers is the recovery time. How much it takes oil to heat to the frying temperatures between batches plays a role in cooking speed and efficiency. Electric fryers are often known to offer faster recovery times. Yet, the fuel type may not be critical in corn dog fryers. That's because battered hot dogs have a delicate structure and pull much less hot oil than chickens, fries, or other items. Therefore, the oil temperatures in these fryers recover more quickly, independent of the fuel type.
Corn dog fryers are primarily for frying crispy and delectable hot dogs. With a deep fryer basket, you can use them like standard deep fryers and create perfectly crisp wings, nuggets, or shrimps. Chef's Deal also has oil filtration supplies to keep your equipment in good condition. You can also see our other selection for commercial deep fryers.
