How to cleaning grease off a Deep Fryer
- neww22DE Nov 24, 2010 09:33 AM
I’m always in the mood to fry; Deep-frying is a delicious way to cook, but it is hard to cleaning grease off a Deep Fryer. I was told to spray it with Engine Shampoo or Engine Degreaser, let it stand for an hour, and wash it, but the fumes are heavy. Any other tips?

Baking soda works because it turns fat into soap, but it's rather weak. The next step up is tri-sodium phosphate, which you can find at hardware stores (Ask for TSP. The paint department is your best bet). If you need to get medieval on that sucker, use oven cleaner, which is spray-on lye.
Engine degreaser contains solvents that I bet are not proven food safe. Bad idea.
