Thermometer for Frying Oil / Cooking Oil Tester PCE-FOT 10

Oil quality meter with 3-digit LCD / Backlit / IP65 protected / Status LEDs (blue, green, red) / Display of PC value between 0.5% to 40% / Automatic switch-off function

The thermometer for frying oil / cooking oil tester PCE-FOT 10 is a measuring device with which you can determine the quality of various types of oil. This cooking oil tester is also successfully used by food inspectors. A measurement is carried out directly in hot fat. For this, the measuring tip is held directly in a fryer or the like. Thus, fast measurement results are guaranteed. The oil temperature in °C / °F and the oil quality in percent PC (polar compounds) are determined within a few seconds. The PC value is a measure of the thermal-oxidative stress level of a frying oil. On the device itself, a traffic light function is installed, so that the oil quality is displayed directly in color.

This coooking oil tester is not only used by food inspectors, but also in gastronomy, According to the recommendations of the DGF (German Society for Fat Science) 24 percent polar components (Polar compounds) are to be regarded as a limit to the healthiness of a deep-frying fat. When old fat is used, it generally has many disadvantages. This includes influencing the taste and the associated reduced quality. In addition, it can cause strong odor and smoke, if the fat is not examined with a cooking oil tester. National regulations regarding maximum PC limits are to be observed if necessary. Since not all oils behave exactly the same, different calibrations can be stored and called up in the coooking oil tester. There are four fixed storage locations (semi-liquid, liquid, solid) as well as 6 variable storage spaces.

Evaluation of the results on the frying oil tester PCE-FOT 10

Oil is new and fresh (LED flashes green)        0 ... 18.5%

Oil is in critical range (LED flashes yellow). It is recommended to replace or partially renew the oil.

19 ... 24%
The oil in the fryer has been used up. The set limit (factory setting 24%) is exceeded and the LED flashes red. Therefore, an exchange of the oil must be made. > 24%
