Imperial 50 Lb Gas Fryer, NG or LP (IFS‑50)



The Imperial IFS-50 gas fryer, with its 50-pound capacity, cooks food quickly. Heat levels between 200 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit can be set by employees, ensuring consistent cooking with the snap-action thermostat. Tube burners directly heat the oil, enabling rapid temperature recovery after food insertion. Fryer baskets can be temporarily placed on hangers to prevent overcooking in busy kitchens. Sediment falls into the large cold zone beneath the elements during cooking, where a mesh screen catches it, extending the oil’s lifespan. The pot’s sloped interior and welded seams aid draining and prevent food particle entrapment. Its stainless steel front, door, and sides streamline cleaning and ensure durability for continuous use.
