> Know when to change your cooking oil

A visual or odour check is not sufficient to verify whether the quality of the cooking oil is still good. Chain restaurateurs with the Testo 270 cooking oil tester only need to change the cooking oil once critical TPM values are reached. This saves them from changing the cooking oil more frequently than is necessary, enabling them to also benefit from the associated cost savings.

How do I test frying oil with the Testo 270?
The frying oil test is extremely easy with the Testo 270 cooking oil tester:

  • Remove the fried product and wait until there are no more bubbles visible in the oil.
  • Switch on the cooking oil tester.
  • Immerse the cooking oil tester in the hot oil and measure.
  • Read off the TPM value - job done.

Product Description
The testo 270 will enable you to work more reliably, intuitively and efficiently: you will find this cooking oil tester to be a competent assistant, helping you achieve impeccable quality assurance when it comes to your frying processes. Easy cooking oil monitoring using the testo 270 will enable you to observe critical TPM values, so that you can change the oil at just the right time. This saves you from changing the cooking oil more frequently than is necessary, allowing you to benefit from the associated cost savings.

Robust, simple and convenient for the kitchen
With its reliable measuring technology, the testo 270 cooking oil tester is your competent part-ner when it comes to ensuring quality assurance for your deep fat fryer, whether you are using the instrument in your restaurant business, commercial kitchen, in catering, food inspection, or in the quality assurance or production of food.

The cooking oil tester is easy to use: you can set the required TPM limit values in advance, and protect them from being modified inadvertently with a PIN. The cooking oil tester’s display will assist you during the measurement itself: it will flash until a stable reading is reached. The display signalling function in traffic light colours (red, yellow and green) enables quick detection of the measurement result range. Naturally, the accurate reading in %TPM can also be read off on the display.
