Which oil is best for deep frying in a Kiremko deep fryer?

Deep-frying is a popular way to prepare potatoes, for example, which is why it is important to know which oil is best to use in your fryer. There are several factors to consider, such as smoke point, shelf life and flavour. In this article, we will discuss the different frying fats that are suitable for deep frying and why they are best for your customer and fryer.

Sunflower oil: sunflower oil has a high smoke point, making it one of the best oils to use in deep frying. It is also rich in unsaturated fats, making it healthier than many other oils.

Olive oil: olive oil has a low smoke point, so it is important to note that it is not suitable for high-heat frying. However, it is a healthy oil, rich in monounsaturated fats and antioxidants.

Coconut oil: coconut oil has a high smoke point and is rich in medium-chain triglycerides, making it a healthier oil for deep frying. It also has a slightly sweet flavour, making it ideal for deep-frying sweets. In addition, coconut oil is also used as an alternative fat for a sandwich.

Peanut oil: peanut oil has a high smoke point and is one of the most affordable oils for deep frying. However, it is not as healthy as other oils and contains a high level of saturated fats.

Rapeseed oil: rapeseed oil has a high smoke point and is rich in unsaturated fats. However, it is not as well known as other oils and can sometimes have a bitter taste.


In conclusion, it is important to consider the different oils when it comes to choosing the best oil for deep frying. Sunflower oil and coconut oil are good options, while olive oil and rapeseed oil can also be healthy alternatives. Keep in mind that groundnut oil is a less healthy option, although it is the most affordable when deep-frying on a large scale.
