French fries, chicken nuggets or donuts: Fried food tastes good and is popular all over the world. For a consistent quality of the fried food, a regular exchange of the cooking oil is necessary. But beware: If the oil is changed too late, the oil is already contaminated by degradation products, and the flavour suffers. Changing the oil too early, on the other hand, has a noticeable effect on costs, especially in view of the steep rise in the price of vegetable oil.

With the cooking oil tester testo 270 you can determine the quality of the cooking oil with a simple measurement - and thus the ideal time to change it. In this way you save oil – and costs – ensuring a consistently delicious frying flavour.

  • Illuminated display colour with intuitive alarms based on the traffic light principle
  • Ergonomic design for safe handling (sufficient distance to hot oil)
  • Washable under running water
  • Certified according to HACCP International, NSF and BVLK.
