Imperial 40 Lb Electric Fryer (IFS‑40‑E)



The Imperial IFS-40-E electric fryer can hold up to 40 pounds of oil. It utilizes immersed elements to efficiently heat oil to temperatures ranging from 200 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, which are regulated by a snap-action thermostat. Thanks to its frypot’s generous cool zone, sediment accumulates at the bottom, preventing flavor mingling between food batches. Changing the oil is made easy with the full-port drain valve. The unit’s exterior, except for the back, is constructed from stainless steel for durability and a polished aesthetic.

Available in 208 and 240 volts, 1 and 3 phase. Please indicate at time of order.
