Recently we had the opportunity to test Frylow in all seven of our fryers at our Goodyear location. With the high volume of food that is fried in our restaurant, we are normally changing the oil every other day. With the Frylow added to all of our systems we noticed that we only needed to change the oil every 4 to 5 days. This is a significant decrease in oil usage on average of 50%.We also needed to reduce the temperature and re-calibrate all of our fryers to 335 degrees from 350 degrees thus using less energy. Additionally we noticed that the food took less time than our specification cook times which increased speed of service from the kitchen as well as decreased labor needed since we were changing oil less frequently.The product tasted better and came out more quickly. I definitely recommend Frylow to any restaurant that uses deep fryers. The cost savings will be evident.

Tests were run over the last month using three Frylows in our fryers in the deli and Coffey shop kitchens. Amongst other products, we fry samosas, chips, spring rolls. potato bite, fish cakes, fish’ chicken and roast potatoes.
At first I was skeptical, I couldn’t see how this device could make our oil last longer. We usually replace our oil every 4 to 7 days, depending on the food product, so I was amazed when I saw the oil in the three fryers was 14 days and older, yet the food still tasted and looked really good. This represents a substantial saving in our oil costs.
Initially the staff were concerned about the dark color of the oil as it got older, but the food, and especially the chips actually tasted better, even with the darker oil. The food was also less oily and we didn’t have to top up the cooking oil as much as we usually do. I would definitely recommend the Frylow, especially since it saves so much on your cooking oil costs.

Before Frylow we were adding close to 10 litres of oil to the deep fryers used to cook hash browns after breakfast service. Nor we add less than 2L. That is not only a major savings, but a major improvement in food quality.
We are saving 6 tonnes annually less oil and have reduced our oil expense by 45% The Frylows paid for themselves in 3 months.
Apple Core has been extremely satisfied with the Frylow bricks. We have had them in place for almost 2 years now. We have decreased our fryer shortening by 50% from day 1 and have maintained that same ratio. With our 23 locations we had a savings of 1,094 tubs of oil the first month and have maintained that each month since. That is a savings of $1,284.26 per location per month. Our ROI on Frylow was 3-4 months. The bonus is with the Frylow bricks we were able to turn down our fry temp by about 6 degrees. Apple Core is still saving $1,200 per month per location two years later it’s almost like printing money.
