Stop Oil Burns with FryerGate
Once in a while, someone invents a new product that adds something to an existing product and, upon seeing it, you say, “Wow, I can’t believe no one thought of that before!” Cars with backup cameras, teeth whitening toothpaste, or DVR. FryerGate is that type of product.
They didn’t invent the fryer, they improved it. The FryerGate covers the tops of commercial kitchen deep fryers providing a barrier between the boiling oil and the chef. This product fits perfectly over your existing fryer and doesn’t slow down the workflow thanks to the spring loaded gate that opens when the fryer basket pushes the release in the back. Here’s the video they have on their site demonstrating the power of their product:
According to FoodserviceWarehouse.com, oil from deep fat fryers is the number one cause of burns in commercial kitchens. ABC News Australia reported “a survey carried out on behalf of the US National Council for Occupational Safety and Health found almost 80 per cent of fast food workers in America had suffered burns in the past year.”
This year, the National Restaurant Association awarded FryerGate the “Kitchen Innovations Award 2015,” in recognition of their meaningful advancements in foodservice equipment and technology.
This one is a no brainer, chef. Get this in the kitchen and take oil burns off your list of concerns.
