Imperial 40 Lb Gas Fryer, NG or LP (IFS‑40)



The Imperial IFS-40-OP fryer boasts a 40-pound oil capacity and a 14-inch by 14-inch frying area. Flame-heated ceramic plates outside the frypot rapidly heat the oil for quick recovery between food loads, while the snap-action thermostat maintains consistent temperatures from 200 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, extending cooking oil life. Its millivolt temperature control requires no electricity, and an automatic shut-off valve prevents overheating for safety. During cooking, crumbs and debris are collected in its cold zone to prolong oil life, and its stainless steel open frypot facilitates quick cleaning. This commercial gas fryer is durable, with stainless steel front, doors, sides, and basket hangers, and includes two nickel-plated fry baskets with stay-cool, vinyl-coated handles.
