The golden frying recipe

Kipco Headquarters

Step 1
Keep the temperature at maximum 175°C.
When applying ‘two-step frying’, do the first step (pre frying) at 160°C.

Step 2
Do not overfill the frying basket. Only fill your basket halfway.
Do not fill the basket above the oil level.

Step 3
Always cook until a light golden yellow colour.

Step 4
Do not overcook. Remove any fries that are too dark.

Step 5
When deep-frying smaller quantities (less than a half-full frying basket)
reduce the cooking time. Always follow the cooking instructions.

Step 6
Fill & shake basket besides fryer,
so no crumb & ice can drop directly into the hot oil.

Step 7 (after frying)
After frying, let the oil drip off and shake the fries for 30 seconds.

Step 8 (after frying)
Put the fries on an absorbent paper. 
Season French Fries after frying, never before or during cooking.

Attention !

Filter the oil and clean the fryer after using it.
Change the oil after 10 uses approximately.
