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



The Imperial IFS-40-OP open-pot fryer features a 40-pound oil capacity and a 14-inch by 14-inch frying area, with flame-heated ceramic plates outside the frypot ensuring rapid oil heating for quick recovery between food loads. Its snap-action thermostat maintains consistent temperatures between 200 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit, extending cooking oil life, while the millivolt temperature control and automatic shut-off valve enhance safety. During cooking, crumbs and debris are captured in the cold zone to extend oil life, and the stainless steel construction facilitates quick cleaning. This commercial gas fryer is suitable for heavy-duty use, boasting durable stainless steel components and two nickel-plated fry baskets with stay-cool handles.
