• A Guide to Commercial Fryers

    French fries, fried shrimp, jalapeno poppers, onion rings...

     

    What do all of these foods have in common? They are fried. And for a restaurant, that means having a top-performing fryer(s). Commercial Fryers are heralded for their ability to cook menu favorites quickly and efficiently, yielding delicious results.  For a restaurant kitchen, deciding what kind of fryer is needed is an important decision that is based heavily on capacity. How much food are you going to need? How many people will you be serving? How much of your menu is fried? All of these factors should determine whether you need a series of heavier-duty floor fryers, or for smaller volume, a countertop fryer. Keep in mind also that as you grow, this number could double, triple, or quadruple, and investing in a slightly larger fryer might be a wise investment. CAPACITY- What kind of fryer do you need? So how should you go about determining what capacity you need? Traditionally, the capacity of a fryer per hour can be calculated by doubling the amount of oil the fryer can hold. So if you have a 50 lbs fryer, it should put out roughly 100 lbs of fried food product per hour. While most commercial fryers operate on natural gas, for example the heavy-duty floor fryers, there are also some fryers, like the countertop units, that have an option between electric and natural gas. Electric fryers have a smaller capacity and could be right for your operation if daily usage is at a minimum.

    HEATING DESIGN There are 3 main designs when it comes to the heating element in fryers: Tube Style, Flat Bottom, and Open Pot. Tube Style fryers have a series of parallel heat strips on the bottom of the fryer which the gas flows through to heat the oil. When particles fall down into the fryer they sink to the "cooling zone," that is, the area below the heated tubes that stays cool and prevents the food particles from burning, and the carbonization of the oil. Preventing this keeps your oil fresher for a longer period of time and it keeps your food free from any unwanted burnt taste. The Open Pot Style features a distinct metal base outside the tank that heats the oil when either the natural gas or the electrical element reaches it. It has a convenient sediment zone that lyes conveniently below the heating zone, allowing food particles to escape to a cooler spot that is easy to clean, unlike the tube style fryers, which are more difficult to clean. The Flat Bottom Style features a heating element that rests underneath the tank, heating the oil when the gas or electric heat hits it. This fryer type does not have a cooling zone for sediments and thus requires frequent oil changes. It's also advised to not fry foods in this type of fryer configuration that will break apart easily. MAINTENANCE Like most restaurant equipment, maintaining a fryer is incredibly important. Keeping it clean, changing out the fryer oil, and ensuring that it is being used properly can help prolong the life of your unit, and failure to do so could ruin the equipment, and worse yet, your customer's dining experience.

For larger events, we offer larger items like a portable grill or fryer which is sure to impress guests by assuring them that the food they are about to eat has been freshly prepared just for them.

    If your catering company finds itself responsible for beverages as well as food, you will require more tools. We offer a portable bar, which is an investment that looks great indoors, or out. We also offer beverage transport solutions. These dispensers are insulated to keep your beverages at proper temperature during the journey from headquarters to the event.

    You also need to set an atmosphere of enjoyment. For a little something unexpected, try adding a chocolate fountain.

  • Easy Peach Crunch Cake

     

    Sometimes, a recipe comes along that just speaks to you. This little Peach Crunch Cake, courtesy of baking maven, Bakerella, was just one of those recipes. Loaded with chopped walnuts, packed brown sugar and lots of sliced peaches, it resembles a peach cobbler, and would be extra delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream over the top. We decided to try it out and let our fellow Mission employees be the guinea pigs, and the results were, you guessed it, peachy!

    Peach Crunch Cake 24.5 oz jar of sliced peaches in light syrup 1 package yellow cake mix 1 stick butter (1/2 cup), cut into 16 pieces 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup chopped walnuts Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Layer ingredients in a 13 X 9 dish, in order starting with the peaches. Bake for about 40 minutes. Serve warm or cold... with or without ice cream. ENJOY! It's that easy!
  • Restaurant Work Tables: A Kitchen Necessity

    In the back of the house, a restaurant kitchen should be organized and efficient. The way it is laid out says a lot about the way the kitchen operates and the overall level of productivity. Your chefs and your kitchen staff need counter space to perform their duties, and with heavy-duty stainless steel work tables, they can do just that. 


    As an important component to a kitchen's day to day routine, you will want to be sure to invest in a table that best fits your space and has all the features to be a dependable partner in the back of the house. At Mission Restaurant Supply you will find restaurant work tables in many sizes to suit your needs and your budget. All are composed of galvanized or heavy-duty stainless steel, which is easy to clean, and most importantly, they are built to endure whatever strains your cooks may inflict. Restaurant work tables can often be mobile and adjustable. If a particular set-up just isn't working, you can move them around and find an arrangement to suit your needs. This mobility can be enhanced by the addition of wheeled casters.


    Some work tables have adjustable legs as well which allows you to customize the height of the workspace and the storage space beneath. Many of our restaurant work tables have an undershelf or a shelf below the counter top that you can use for extra storage space. We also provide drawers, which can be easily attached to the legs of the table. These drawers prevent small items from creating a cluttered mess, while keeping them near the work space and ready for use.

     Some restaurant work tables may need to be placed against walls. For this purpose, Mission Restaurant supply has tables with a walled edge or riser that fits flush against the wall. These risers can prevent splatter from staining the kitchen walls and they also prove useful by preventing cutting boards from sliding around if you choose to use the work table as a free standing island. Restaurant worktables provide mobility, customization, extra space, and aesthetic appeal at varying price points. Determining what level of quality and what manufacturer best fits your budget and demand will be an important decision to consider prior to investment. Brands like Advance Tabco have built a reputation around making the highest quality tables with the strongest steel and pristine manufacturing. Other brands like Jaxpro are great options for the end user on a budget that doesn't want to compromise on the function or aesthetic of their work table. 

    Whatever the size of your kitchen, Mission Restaurant Supply's work tables will prove an asset to your business. Let us help you find what you need. Give us a call at 1-800-319-0690 from 8 AM to 6 PM (CST) Monday through Friday. We look forward to hearing from you!
