testo 270 - Digital deep fry oil tester

0563 2700
  • No need to wait for the oil to cool off first. Capacitive oil sensor from testo allows measurements to be carried out in hot oil
  • Automatic recognition of final value (auto hold %TPM), two selectable threshold values, acoustic and optical alarm alerts the user when critical thresholds are breached
  • Hygienic handling: removable, dishwasher proof housing (waterproof, IP65 rated), hand strap (optional)
  • High-quality design, full range of accessories including reference oil, waterproof casing, aluminum case, training card and much more
  • Is your deep fry oil still good or does it need changing? Are the total polar material (TPM) values, which indicate the quality has deteriorated, still within the permissible limits? The testo 270 measures the quality of the deep fry oil in %TPM. This also makes it ideal also for food safety inspectors, hotels, restaurants, canteen kitchens, catering, quality control, food production etc.

    Knowing when to change your frying oil is a science in itself. You want your oil to live up to your standards of quality, but you don’t want to waste good money by changing the oil if there’s no need to.
    The testo 270 digital deep fry thermometer can tell you when the critical TPM values have been exceeded and whether your oil needs changing. This also makes it ideal for food safety inspectors, hotels, restaurants, canteen kitchens, catering, quality control, food production, among others.

    Determining the quality of cooking oil

    Cooking oil is constantly exposed to chemical reactions during its lifecycle due to its composition and various external influences. A fat molecule always consists of a glycerine (alcohol) and three fatty acids. During the deep fat frying process, the fatty acids are separated from the remaining glycerine. In addition to free fatty acids, various degradation products such as aldehydes and ketones are produced which are combined under the overall parameter of “Total Polar Materials”. %TPM is an internationally recognised parameter for cooking oil quality. Measuring the TPM value means cooking oil can be used without incurring any health risks or fines as a result of limit values being exceeded.

    With TPM cooking oil measurement, the TPM content of the cooking oil is determined directly on the customer's premises in the cooking oil tank using a portable measuring instrument. This means customers can classify and evaluate their cooking oil from statutory and quality perspectives and also:

    • comply with statutory limit values
    • work cost-effectively: the oil is not changed too soon
    • Guarantee quality assurance: the oil is not changed too late
