Measurement with the testo 270 cooking oil tester
You can achieve better measurements and consistently precise measuring values with the testo 270. This is how it works: as soon as the fried product has been taken out and there are no more bubbles rising in the oil, you know there is no longer any water contained in it and the measurement can begin. Both water and any fried products would falsify the measurement. First, pay attention to the immersion depth. This is ideally between the min. and max. markings on the probe. Just like when checking the oil level for a car. A minimum distance of 1 cm should be adhered to between the probe and any metal components of the deep fat fryer. Small circular movements in the oil make the frying oil test quicker.
When you use the testo 270 frying oil measuring device in the Auto-Hold mode, the display flashes until the measurement is completed. As soon as the display stops flashing, it shows the Total Polar Materials component. Interpretation of the value is particularly easy thanks to the background illumination of the display:
- Green (less than 20% TPM): all OK
- Orange (between 20 and 24%): the oil is still OK. However, you should think about replacing it.
- Red (more than 24% TPM): the oil must be replaced
How long does cooking oil remain good?
That always depends on which oil you use and how often you fry. However, to be on the safe side, regular measurement with a cooking oil tester is recommended. The instrument enables a frying oil test to be carried out quickly and you can fry with a clear conscience. Depending on the utilization of the deep fat fryer, it may be advisable to measure the quality on a daily basis at first and then to extend the intervals.
Save cooking oil
Regular measurement with the testo 270 prevents the cooking oil from being replaced too early or too late – this can reduce your cooking oil consumption by up to 20%, thus saving costs.
