Great for breaded foods, the Imperial IFS-40 commercial gas fryer has a tube-type burner system that utilizes cast iron burners and a large heat transfer area. The burners are submerged in the oil and have a deflector system that heats the oil quickly to prevent oil absorption in the food. Below the tubes, the cold zone captures and holds particles, preventing burning and flavor transfer between products. Because the stainless steel frypot is welded, it is resistant to leaks.

The recessed bottom in this Imperial IFS-40 gas fryer is slanted, directing oil into the 114-inch drain to simplify cleaning. Nickel-plated fryer baskets are included with the unit, and their coated handles prevent heat transfer and minimize injury. The fryer oil temperature is adjustable from 200 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and this level can be set on the millivolt controller.
