Procedures for cleaning a Broaster pressure fryer can be accessed on the Broaster.com website. The Operation Manuals for Broaster models 1600, 1800 and 2400 have detailed cleaning procedures and a schedule of cleaning for equipment maintenance.
The condensate pan, the food basket and slide rod must be cleaned daily. The cooking well, o-ring, pressure relief valve port and gauge port, cover, splash guard and temperature sensor should be cleaned weekly. The probe guard and basket guides should be cleaned at least quarterly, and may need to be cleaned more often if the cooking volume is high. Diagrams are included in the manual, demonstrating each part that needs regular cleaning.
Before cleaning the machine, disconnect the pressure fryer from the power source. To clean the cooking well, use Broaster cooking well cleaner, rather than standard soaps or detergents. Other parts, such as the food basket, can be cleaned with a household dish soap; the basket can then be rinsed with a vinegar and water solution. The filter pan and cover, unit surfaces and slide rod can merely be wiped down with a clean cloth or paper towel to remove grease and crumbs. The o-ring should only be cleaned with warm water.
