Getting the right donut equipment is the first thing any donut shop has to do, as this is what will determine the quality of their products. There are plenty of machines to buy, but usually the most important ones are the fryer and the batter portioner. In the case of commercial donut fryers, there are several types, such as those powered by electricity or gas.
How to choose the best commercial donut equipment
Knowing which type of power source is better suited for your kitchen is essential. Though gas-powered countertop donut fryers may be cheaper in some areas, it is usually harder to find and has some technical disadvantages, like potential leaks. Electric donut fryers for commercial use, on the other hand, are safer and easier to use and install. They also conduct heat more efficiently, which transforms into faster heating times.
Gas and electric donut makers are characterised for their larger capacity in contrast to domestic ones. They can usually contain between 8 and 24 litres of oil, which will affect the number of donuts that can be made at a time and how often the oil needs to be cleaned or replaced. So, knowing how much you expect to sell is key when choosing the perfect equipment for your business.
In the case of donut batter dispensers, size is also important. If the hopper is too small, you will have to refill it often, which is inefficient. In this case, bigger usually means better.
How to take proper care of your donut equipment
Buying any type of equipment for your kitchen is a long-term investment that you expect to last for years. In the case of commercial donut batter dispensers and fryers, some routine maintenance can really extend the working life of the device and provide better cooking quality.
Fryers are the ones that require more care and constant cleaning. Ideally, they should be cleaned up every single day, or even more often if necessary. It is very important to do this with a damp sponge or towel. Under no circumstances it is appropriate to immerse the device in water, as this will probably harm the device’s functionality. We also recommend that you use only some soapy water, as the plastic of the switches and the stainless steel of the body may be damaged by chemicals.
We also supply several different oil filtration systems specifically for lengthening the life of oil in deep fryers. Depending on the volume of oil your business consumes, these filtration machines can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars each year by cleaning out the food scraps and waste that accumulates at the bottom of the vats.
Commercial donut dispensers, on the other hand, are much easier to clean. Those that are made of stainless steel can be cleaned with just a dishwasher. Those that are made of aluminium, though, are flimsier, so using a dishwasher is not recommended.
