Cooking oil quality

The Testo 270 is latest generation of our proven range cooking oil testers. Testo’s 270 allows you to determine the quality of cooking oil faster and more reliably than ever before. To do so, it measures the ‘Total Polar Material’ (TPM) content in the oil, which is a sure indicator of its quality. 

It then gives a percentage and if the oil is aged an increased TPM value will show. By using improper oil not only will the food produced be of a lower quality, but there are also health risks surrounding cleanliness. This is the reason why the polar materials may not exceed a certain limit, depending on the country. 
Regular measurement with the testo 270 will help to prevent this. 
Cooking oil develops its best potential between 14 and 20% TPM. Using this measurement tool to understand exactly when oil needs replacing also makes sure you aren’t wasting oil. You don’t want to be replacing perfectly good oil by changing too frequently as this will increase oil consumption and ultimately costs.In addition to the above, the TPM limit values can be individually defined, and can, like other instrument configurations, be protected from inadvertent alteration by a PIN. 
Did you know: Extensive practical tests by Testo engineers have demonstrated that regular measurement with the Testo 270 reduces the consumption of cooking oil by up to 20 %. So if for example if you used 1,000 litres per year and assuming a price of 70 cents per litre - that makes for a saving of $5,160 a year!

    A visual or odour check is not sufficient to verify whether the quality of the cooking oil is still good. Chain restaurateurs with the testo 270 cooking oil tester only need to change the cooking oil once critical TPM values are reached. This saves them from changing the cooking oil more frequently than is necessary, enabling them to also benefit from the associated cost savings.
