Cooking oil alters the texture, color and taste of fried food products. Done well, oil affects food in delicious ways. But the point at which your employees change or filter oil can affect the product recipe, flavor consistency from store to store and, ultimately, your brand. Frontline’s M3 data management system, combined with the EZ Oil fresh-oil dispensing system and direct-plumbed waste oil equipment, now offers a tool that enables you to program your fryers to automatically top-off and filter oil—all in an effort to enhance the taste of your product and to ensure consistent results. “Every time an employee uses a fryer, the equipment immediately ‘talks’ to the M3 management system, which signals to the EZ Oil system precisely how much oil to add to the vat,” says Giovanni Brienza, V.P. of Frontline. “The automated top-off feature ensures consistent results from batch to batch.” The tool also works with a battery of fryers—each individual fryer communicates to the EZ Oil system via the M3 communication portal. This feature ensures a vat cooking fries and another preparing chicken receive the specific amount of oil needed. frontlineii.com
