Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn off the deep fryer and let it cool down. Drain the oil from the fryer according to the directions for your particular product.

  2. 2

    Scrape the sides and bottom of the deep fryer with a clean paint scraper to remove any burnt oil or food residue. Discard the waste in a garbage bin.

  3. 3

    Fill the fryer with water, up to the oil level. Add three to five drops of liquid dish soap and agitate the water with your hands until bubbles form.

  4. 4

    Plug the fryer in and turn it on. Let the water in the fryer boil for 10 minutes.

  5. 5

    Unplug the fryer and let it cool down for five to 10 minutes. Drain the water once it cools.

  6. 6

    Mix a solution of one part white vinegar to 10 parts water in a bucket. Rinse the inside of the fryer with the vinegar solution.

  7. 7

    Rinse the fryer one last time with plain water. Dry the inside of the fryer with paper towels.

  8. 8

    Make a paste of one part water to three parts baking soda. Apply a thin layer of the paste to any grease on the outside of the fryer and let it sit for 10 minutes. This paste acts as a natural degreaser.

  9. 9

    Scrub the baking soda paste with a scouring pad until the oil comes off. Rinse the outside of the fryer with water.
