Using 3M Oil Test Strips

Oil Quality Verification

Frylow Ceramic Oil Extender doubles the life of cooking oil with a superior served fried product. 3M Oil Test Strips are a reliable independant verification of the quality of your cooking oil. The 3M Strips measure the FFA or free fatty acids of the vegetable oil. Included as part of a Frylow Trial, 3M Oil Test Strips will provide the answer.


For financial and quality of fried product factors, cooking oil must be changed at the appropriate time. Fryer oil quality must be determined by the taste, consistency, and color of the food served. Your restaurant and customers rely on this. The color of the oil should not be a factor in oil changes with Frylow as 47% less Oil penetrates the fried food.


Since Frylow doubles fryer oil life with lower cooking times and temperatures, the use of the 3M® strips provides an accurate, independant, and scientific approach to judging fryer oil quality.
