Convection fryer with convenient filter and oil treatment provisions
WO 2007055980 A3
A fry cooker uses a flow of cooking oil or other medium during the cooking operation to strain out or screen particles that cause degradation of the cooking oil or medium. There are several configurations of the fryer that achieve this result. One is a fryer with a first coarse strainer (13) and a second fine sieve (14) or screen. The first screen (13) is used to swiftly screen and separate coarse particles. The second (14) is used as a finer filter to separate finer particles. Either screen may also be adapted to hold a packet for chemically treating and preserving the cooking medium. Another configuration may include a fryer basket (50) that has a straining portion (53) for removing particulates from the cooking medium. The basket may have an upper sealing portion (51) and a lower straining portion (53).
