You are following your dream of becoming an entrepreneur and restauranteur by opening your own eatery. Congratulations! This is going to be a big and exhausting labor of love. One of the first challenges you’ll face is obtaining all the equipment and supplies you’ll need, everything from an oven, to placemats, and pots and pans. If you plan on including fried foods on your menu, then fryers will be on your list as well. Where can you find the best fryers?
Shopping for Supplies
Fortunately, you aren’t entirely in the wilderness when it comes to shopping for restaurant supplies. You have the option of signing up for wholesale programs that offer business owners steep discounts for buying in bulk. These programs offer a wide range of restaurant supplies. However, when it comes to buying the perfect fryers, you might want to consider an unusual source – a wire mesh vendor.
Fryers are made out of wire mesh, and when you go directly to the source by reaching out to a wire mesh vendor, you’ll be able to get the best product possible for your restaurant.
What to Look for in Fryer Baskets
You need to make sure that you shop for restaurant-quality fryer baskets. You aren’t just going to be occasionally dunking chicken fingers and fries for family get-togethers. Your fryers need to stand up to scalding hot oil day in and day out for years. They also need to have nice, wide openings that let the oil drain out. If your fryer openings are too small, they could get clogged with congealed oil. Over time, more oil will remain in the fryer, turning what used to be golden, crispy fries into a greasy mess that won’t appeal to your customers.
Here at Lawrence Sintered Metals, we specialize in designing and fabricating wired mesh that is used in all sorts of industries, including the restaurant industry. We can provide you with personalized wired mesh for your fryers that meet your specific requirements. This is ideal if you plan on making specialty dishes and need fryer baskets designed in a unique size. We work with a variety of metals, including stainless steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, copper, bronze, brass, and other alloys. We can help you determine the ideal material that will hold up against scalding oil and lots of everyday use.
We know that the restaurant business is a big challenge, but hopefully we can help you with one small part of your exciting new business. Bon Appetit!
